Here is a strong indicator that the Obama Administrations crusade to appease Islam has gone too far; a new U.S. military handbook for troops deployed to the Middle East orders soldiers not to make derogatory comments about the Taliban or criticize pedophilia, among other outrageous things.
It gets better; the new manual, which is around 75 pages, suggests that Western ignorance of Afghan culture not Taliban infiltrationis responsible for the increase in deadly attacks by Afghan soldiers against the coalition forces.
The soon-to-be-released Army handbook is still being drafted, but a mainstream newspaper got a sneak preview and published an article that should infuriate the American taxpayers funding the never-ending war on terror. The manual is being created because someone with authority bought the theory that cultural insensitivity is driving insider attacks on U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
More than three dozen insider attacks have killed 63 members of the U.S.-led coalition this year, according to the article, and some blame American cultural ignorance. The bottom line is that troops may experience social-cultural shock and/or discomfort when interacting with Afghan security forces, the new military handbook says. Better situational awareness/understanding of Afghan culture will help better prepare [troops] to more effectively partner and to avoid cultural conflict that can lead toward green-on-blue violence.
The draft leaked to the newspaper offers a list of taboo conversation topics that soldiers should avoid, including making derogatory comments about the Taliban, advocating womens rights, any criticism of pedophilia, directing any criticism towards Afghans, mentioning homosexuality and homosexual conduct or anything related to Islam.
At least one high-ranking military official had the backbone to publicly criticize the new manual, albeit through a spokesperson. U.S. Marine General John Allen, the top commander in Afghanistan, doesnt endorse it and rejected a proposed forward drafted by Army officials in his name. He does not approve of its contents, according to a military spokesman quoted in the story.
Earlier this year the Obama Administration changed the way federal agents are trained to combat terrorism and violent extremism by eliminating all materials that shed a negative light on Muslims. Under White House orders, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) destroyed instructional material that characterizes Muslims as prone to violence or terrorism in a government-wide call to end Islamophobia.
Under Obama practically every major federal agency has been ordered to participate in Muslim outreach initiatives, including the Justice Department with a special program to protect Islamic civil rights, Homeland Security meetings with extremist Muslim organizations and the nations space agency (NASA) with an unprecedented mission to focus on Muslim diplomacy.
Additionally, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signed a special order to allow the reentry of two radical Islamic academics whose terrorist ties long banned them from the U.S. and the administration sent an America-bashing mosque leader (Feisal Abdul Rauf) who blames U.S. foreign policy for the 9/11 attacks on a Middle Eastern outreach mission. The Obama Administration even ordered a government-funded meal program for home-bound seniors to offer halal cuisine prepared according to Islamic law.
Get the troops out of Afghanistan before the brass murder them all with their heros, the enemy.
Kill ‘em all you want. But don’t insult them.
Tolerance to the nth power. Afghanistan sounds more like trying to meander through a PETA party while totin a carnitas burrito and flipping some pigs feet into the old mastication machine( mouth) trying not to get caught than fighting a dagumed war on terror with murderous religious cultist women hatin zealots. I mean freedom fightin muzzard “insurgents.”
Before the end of Caesar Obama’s reign, children will be taught that “anti-abortion Republican reactionaries” flew airplanes into buildings on 9/11. “Who controls the past controls the future”, and all that ...
Have they finally figured out the POS-In-Chief is a muslim sympathizer? Would there be any other reason to fill his administration with Muslim sympathizers? Would there be any other reason for the Pentagon to be prosecuting hero American soldiers who are warning us of the dangers of muslim infiltration? Would there be any other reason for an American Embassy Security Officer (Eric Nordstrom) to testify before congress that the Taliban is in the building? ...... WANT MORE???
