“Three Block War” - troops will fight on one, keep the peace on the next, and pass out food on the last. Nice and pretty, right? BULLSH*T. It’s a good marketing term for transforming the military into a social program, the liberal wet-dream. And a lot of COIN assumptions are pipe-dreams, too.

We send those men out to turn feudal, heroin-dealing Afghanis into dusky Americans. And we leave them out there with no women. THEN we send out lithe, young athletic women with tight-fitting clothes and are then TOTALLY AMAZED at the results. And it’s mostly cuz of feminism.

Lessay you put a bag-lady in an unguarded Tiffany’s overnight —what kind of embicile would be surprised if there’s a ring or ten missing...? But that’s where we are, using a very new and ridiculous set of assumptions about how people work.

Remember Bubba? When he was busted in the Monica Mess every network was trecking out to France to find beret-wearing scumbags mutter amazement about American Puritans lack of understanding about “how men inevitably are”. WHERE ARE THEY NOW...? The double-standard is amazing.

Did you know that the State Dept. ads for Consulate Guards called for Arabic-speaking homosexuals familiar with firearms and willing to work for $13,000 per year..(DOJ hiring afforded advantages to insane dwarves with J.D.’s)...?

That’s only slightly less insane than the notion that this sudden MSM focus on the T&A aspects of this scandal actually serves to cover-up a uch LARGER SCANDAL....

Ms Kelley is from a prominent Lebanese Christian family now residing in Tampa. The potential for manipulation by foreign intelligence agencies of people who probably have relatives still within the reach of say Syrian intel goons is obvious. The volume of e-mail from Gen. Allen to this woman reeks of a major security breech not just a lot of hot sex mails.

I am thinking this not so much as a purge as it is character assassination. Think “Whitewater”.

Back during her wild single years, my wife went to Mardi Gras a few times and got to know a cop down there. There is some kind of grand ball where everyone cross-dresses. Apparently more than half of Congress would attend.

Just sayin'...

I’m thinking the same thing. Destroy the military to avoid a possible coup?

You can ask Generals Werner von Fritsch & Werner von Blomberg about how this goes.

At least so far, 0bama and his goons have not pulled a Marshal Tukachevsky on our military leadership.

But now that the election is over, the military is being purged. The men will be replaced with more of the Dempsey-types. Kind of a cross between Dmitri Pavlov and Wilhelm Keitel.

I think we’re finally realising that everyone is pretty much the same, even those we think should be above certain behaviors.

It's worse than than. Washington, D.C. is the real sin city of this country. The seamy energy is palpable if you are anything but a casual tourist.

Once again, our best men will be wrongly condemned by a foolish public. Who was caring for these women? Where were their husbands, their fathers, their brothers . . . ?

We are left with chaos. From the Confucian Book of Odes:

"Disorder is not sent down by heaven; it is produced by women."

Thjat’s crap. Not everyone engages in extra marital affairs. Not everyone is duplicitous and deceitful. This acceptance if behavior that is deadly to the moral strength of our country makes me angry. The meme that ‘well everyone does it. boys will be boys. etc etc’

Really??? Is that how low your own personal standards are???? I dont care if boys will be boys....we need MEN to lead our nation. Everyone does it??? Well then go shoot dope and drink yourself to death cause everyone is doing that too.

I am SICK of hearing this justification for unacceptable behavior.

Petraeus’s friends supposedly are saying he sees NO REASON that he should testify. IF that is true then a pox on them all. The man is a coward and treasonous. End of story

Of course not everyone does that, just as not all people are alike. It does happen and has been happening since there were people. We may have all been created the same physically, but certainly not morally.

My personal standards are my own, as are yours. Why would you think all people have or should have the same standards?

Interestingly enough when this nation actually was a God fearing nation, we culturally had a standard that was pretty darned close to our own personal standards.

if your standard is that you can lie and cheat and break your marriage ows and then pretend it really isn’t important....I am not interested in having you do much or be much of a leader in any realm. To think that putting morally compromised people into positions of power is a good thing leads to people like Billy Jeff Clinton and Barack Obama and pretty much every one in Congress. We probably should just put the Mafia in charge because at least there is honor among thieves.

Lord help us all. This nation has devolved to the gutter

The man is a coward and treasonous.

And over the course of his lengthy military career he would have enforced the UCMJ against underlings who engaged in adulterous behavior.

He's like a dirty cop who arrests people for crimes of which he is also guilty. He's the worst kind of hypocrite.

It's bad enough that he betrays his wife and family and his wedding vows, but he's also betrayed his country by opening the door to security breaches, and this is now a MAJOR distraction from the issues that are important to the nation (e.g. what REALLY happened in Libya).

According to a retired admiral, James Lyons, the military command has been politicized ever since Goldwater- ? (I can’t recall the other name on the bill). He is disgusted with what is going on now with the top commanders.

said, "Does anyone watch the show ARMY WIVES? people have affairs."

You watch way to much TV. What are they up to now 90% of the character actors have affairs and 70% are homosexuals?

Just turn it off

And the dims would have run a campaign even more slimy against Newt if he had. There were already those kinds of comments coming from the GOP as well as ads in general about Newt.

I think we’re finally realising that everyone is pretty much the same, even those we think should be above certain behaviors.

That's a cheap justification; a reworded "everyone is doing it."

There are plenty of men who do not cheat. The idea that cheating is universal or unavoidable is simply false.

However, it is true that we each have similar human weaknesses. The crucial difference is in the "therefore, what?" Therefore, people should be very cautious about their male-female relationships, realizing that very powerful forces are at work, which must be accounted for and properly protected against.

If you work with a woman you shouldn't be having sexual relations with, then eliminate or at least severely limit alone, one-on-one contact. Make sure your wife is aware of the working relationship and that it's clear to all that she is welcome to be around the both of you at any time. If there's any point where you would feel uncomfortable if your wife saw/heard what was going on, then that should be a big, red, flashing alarm to make changes quickly.

You keep from falling over the edge by acknowledging that there is an edge, then staying far away from it.

Well, everyone is doing it...that wants to, and those that don’t, don’t do it, like you said. Besides, no one said it was universal, it’s individual.

People are people, not a justification, an explanation.

People are different, some like different distances from that ledge and some are just clumsy.
