Sorry, not enough minorities can even pass the ASVAB to break into even the enlisted ranks. Or, they are too busy selling drugs, tacos, or enrolling in community colleges to join.

Hubby was a recruiter who saw this for too many years. Also, many of our high school principals in these areas refuse to allow military recruiters in to sign them up.

The question that should be asked ...exactly how many women/minority types even WANT to serve, or believe in taking the oath required to serve? How many would provide the ultimate sacrifice if called upon? Do we really believe enough of these people even care about this country to that extent OR have the mental AND physical ability to serve?

A good many of them mock the patriotic principles that it takes ... many of them believe it is either beneath them, or that it’s just not “their cup of tea.”

Do these morons understand that the military is a merit based system? If your good enough, you move up. If your not, you don’t!
Maybe it’s just me, but I never once looked around at my leadership and thought, Damn, there too many white dudes in charge. We need a few more black, hispanic and asian guys at the top. All I cared about was if the man at the top could lead, and that he could take care of his Marines.
An affirmative action program in the military will destroy it. Period!!

What the heck else could a group called "Military Leadership Diversity Committee" possibly conclude?

The very existence of such a group is an indication of it's purpose.

Leveraging diversity

In war there are two kinds of people. The living and the dead. By "leveraging diversity" they can only mean more DEAD.

Nowhere in that “report” does it identify why this rush to diversity would actually make our Armed Forces more effective.

Do we want our military sons and daughters led by the best leaders available... or those selected by a diversity board to fill quotas?

I am truly amazed at how this country is dead set on committing national suicide on all fronts.

In support of these findings, I recommend that Adm. Mullen be relieved, Allen West be recalled to active duty, given four stars, and appointed as CJCS.

That should make the left happy.

It’s also why the military settled on the 9mm Beretta because the ladies couldn’t handle the .45 - just saying.

I don’t want white men at the top. I want great warriors and leaders.

Time to bluntly return fire, because we are at war for the very survival of our culture:

White Christian men are almost wholly responsible for the pinnacle of human achievement, Western Civilization.

I hope some find that statement “offensive”. If not, I can be more clear.

Dirversity as a requirement is a LIE. It is a lie in the past now and in the future. There is no increased strength or capability brought about by diversity...only out of ABILITY. If those who CHOOSE to enter the military meet standards and excell they WILL be rewarded.

These liars conveniently sidestep all history in the US on how the Military has ALWAYS led in diversity and how it was the MILITARY in so many places that brough about changes socially proving that inate characteristics like being black or asian or anything else mattered not but that like MLK said the content of their character did.

Now the real danger is how the gays have successfully overturned DADT and will push until their lie of inateness is simply accepted without proof so that soon enough religious freedom to adhere to the christian principles that homosexuality is a sin will be forcibly restricted. We are a free nation no more when things liek this happen.
