Skip to comments.Chairman of Joint Chiefs removes instructors, material that is offensive to Islam
Posted on 05/16/2012 6:59:09 AM PDT by Conservative Vermont Vet
Americas top military officer condemned in the strongest possible terms a Defense Department course that taught troops to prep for a total war on Islam using Hiroshima-style tactics.
It was totally objectionable, against our values and it wasnt academically sound, Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters at a Pentagon press conference on Thursday. The instructor responsible for the course, Army Lt. Col. Matthew A. Dooley, is no longer in a teaching status, Dempsey added but he is still employed at the Joint Forces Staff College in Norfolk, Va
Dempsey and his deputy for military education, Marine Lt. Gen. George Flynn, pulled the plug on the course last month. The general said he was quite thankful for an unnamed military officer who brought word of the anti-Islam material to his attention.

(AND LESS ANYONE HAVE ANY DOUBT WHERE THIS DIRECTIVE CAME FROM )
Dempsey and his staff launched an investigation into what motivated that elective to being part of the curriculum, as he put it on Thursday, and the general also sent a letter to the heads of every military service and regional command instructing them to jettison any similar material, AS PER A WHITE HOUSE DIRECTIVE ISSUED LAST FALL.
Definition of Islam: SUBMIT!
And the FASCIST, HATE-AMERICA/Capitalism/Military Dear Leader marches on in his effort to DESTROY this Republic as he personally appoints Islamist/Muslim Brotherhood-supporters as White House advisors ..
.all the while, appeasing, defending and as illustrated herein, actually SUPPORTING and FACILITATING the Islamic Radicals in their efforts to undermine our country thru Stealth Jihad, "Civilization Jihad," and their STATED OBJECTIVE (for decades now) to "DESTROY OUR MISERABLE HOUSE FROM WITHIN BY OUR OWN HAND!".
This is the same SNAKE who has "Recognized" the Muslim Brotherhood; has engaged in "negotiations" with our enemy, the Taliban; has ordered the release of dangerous Terrorists from the prisons in AfGan; ordered the few Terrorist/Combatans who are captured to be afforded ALL of the "Rights" under our Constitution; has instituted inane and INSANE Rules of Engagement, which are causing needless casualties, and on, and on, and on!
Yep, nodoubtaboutit, Romney is 10 times more dangerous and a threat to the United States.
As some here have wanted to form the argument against voting for Romney as one of PATRIOTISM, .
and as a Nam Vet, I want to hear from other Vets and elicit their opinions as to who they fear the most, OBummer or Mittens?
PS, for ALL who are suggesting that EVEN if OBozzo is re-elected, we REALLY dont have anything to concern ourselves with (RIGHT!) as the Republi-Tards in the House and Senate will keep him in check, ..
..PLEASE furnish us with the name of ONE R Congress Critter who has even mentioned this abomination, much less criticized it???
So. We surrendered?
It'll be back later.
Will Army Gen. Martin Dempsey?
be back later?
I agree, thing is, will it by then, be too late as that will only happen WHEN (not if) we suffer another serious attack?
You will probably have a long wait.
Obama IS a Muslim. He has never been a Christian - probably never even read The Apostle’s Creed, let alone recited it or embraced it.
Hopefully this is just window dressing.
Hitler is not our enemy...just a poor missunderstood guy that wants what’s best for the whole world!
When we can’t be allowed to recognize our enemies, we’re lost.
Colonel Dave Grossman wrote in his book “On Killing”, to paraphrase, that the enemy force that exposed his flank or turned and ran was almost always pursued and annihilated, for it is far easier to kill a man when you do not have to look at his face.
We are exposing our flanks and back to this enemy, islam, who is by it’s very tenets, duty bound to destroy us.
I ask anyone, what is it about islam and those that practice it, that so enrichs everyone else lives that we must tolerate it’s monstrous idealogy? Would we not be better of with it contained to it’s natural hemisphere?
The top USA military leaders get and keep their jobs only if they have higher commitment to the politicians (Obama) than to their people.
In the Military we are taught to put the welfare of our people first. But the higher the Commissioned Officer rises in the ranks, the more he/she must become a political stooge for the politicians, the President in particular.
As the Chinese saying, “The fish rots from the head down.”
Bad leadership and corruption flows down from the top.
One of the first things that Romney needs to do after he is sworn in, is the fire this general!
SADLY, our "SURRENDER" happened under George W. Bush, when he (based upon pressure and bad advice) relented from his policy of "your are either with us or against us," and uttered his famous statement that Islam was a "Religion of Peace."
We have none other than a pretend Conservative, Islamic-Jihadist-Supporting, TRAITOROUS, bottom-feeding, scumbag, SNAKE (GROVER NORQUIST) to thank for and his being responsible for facilitating entre into the White House of many Muslim Brotherhood Operatives as well as working to weaken our Military and Security.
See Frank Gaffney's Excelent Series on the Muslim Brotherhood.
A MUST SEE: The Muslim Brotherhood in America
Definition of Islam: SUBMIT!
Love your enemy and don’t offend them. I don’t think that is going to work.
Well let’s see, the muslims are offended by Freedom, Liberty, our Constitution, Women who don’t wear burlap bags, free enterprise, bacon, music....Jesus Our Lord And Savior - that’s a big one...pretty much everything America stands for...
It appears that when one puts on 4 stars he is balanced out by removing his spine and cajones. I retired at 0-5 because the politics at 0-6 were just intolerable.
During WWII I remember all the posters of buck-toothed four-eyed Japanese and drooling blood-thirsty Germans the govt to dehumanize the enemy and motivate people to work harder or buy war bonds.
But with this crowd in D.C., we could be in an overt full-bore war with the Muslims and they still wouldn’t use anything that might be deemed “offensive”.
When in the history of history has any tribe, group, nation allowed its enemies to make the rules - ESPECIALLY military rules ???
God help us - our leaders are insane !!!
The apostles creed is catholic. Lots of Christians have never said it.
"The apostles creed is catholic."Really???? How odd, we recite it in the Methodist church, the Episcopalians recite it, in fact most organized Christian churches do so. It may be of Catholic origin, but it is not "Catholic."
>> The apostles creed is catholic. Lots of Christians have never said it.
Yeah, and lots of Christians love Elvis and Obama just as much as they love Jesus.
Romney needs to do a thorough housecleaning of all the Obama hacks, not what George W. did, playing the nice guy reaching across the aisle. The Democrats have always known that it is war, only our clueless Republicans try to play nice with them.
I was raised Missouri Synod Lutheran and the Apostles Creed was right up there with the Lord's Prayer.
Just checked, the ninth line was edited to read "holy Christian Church" instead of "holy catholic Church".
On reading further I found this:
"The Apostles' Creed is an early statement of Christian belief, a creed or "symbol". It is widely used by a number of Christian denominations for both liturgical and catechetical purposes, most visibly by liturgical Churches of Western tradition, including the Latin Rite of the Catholic Church, Lutheranism, Anglicanism, and Western Orthodoxy. It is also used by Presbyterians, Methodists, and Congregationalists."
Yes, we would be better off if that monstrous theocratic ideology were contained in its own yard.
The last “Cultural Awareness” class I went to here at Fort Carson was entertaining. A muslim was telling us about muslim culture and asked if we had any questions. Numerous Soldiers asked very blunt questions such as “Why do muslims treat their women like crap?” and “Why should we respect muslim culture when they want to kill infidels as it tells them in the koran?” or one statement by an NCO “I already know about muslim culture and it sucks.”
The muslim was rather uncomfortable and one of our officers ended the class at that point.
