“It’s the purest application of socialism there is,” Wesley Clark, the retired four-star general and former supreme allied commander of NATO forces in Europe, told me.

Ugh....the Weasel would say something like that.

And the article crows about how the military "knits together" all of these differences races and social backgrounds, but believe me, there is every bit as much clannishness in the military as there is in civilian life.

Attend any holiday gathering downrange and you'll see the blacks all off at one table, Asians at another and other clicques forming along racial lines.

I admire and support our armed forces and am very, very grateful for them and for what they do, but the utopia described in this article is no closer to reality than the utopia the liberals envision in other aspects of our society.

I’ve always hung out with a lot of different nationalities. I never caught any grief from the other white guys; but my friends would often catch flack from the latinos, blacks or asians for hanging with a mixed crowd. Fortunately, my friends share my attitude in which I refuse to suffer the presence of idiots.

I never saw that in my career. It happened alot in the support MOSes I saw, from the outside. But in Combat Arms units that I was in, we never had a problem with it.

As I’ve posted here in the past, there were race riots in the rear during the Nam... At times it was safer in the bush with the dinks!
