Skip to comments.Proposed Army manual tells G.I.s not to insult Taliban, speak up for women
Posted on 12/12/2012 1:33:37 PM PST by RoosterRedux
A proposed new handbook for Americans serving in Afghanistan warns them not to speak ill about the Taliban, advocate womens rights or criticize pedophilia, and the general in charge is not happy with it.
The draft of the newest Army handbook seems to suggest that ignorance of Afghan culture is to blame for deadly attacks by Afghan soldiers against the coalition forces, according to The Wall Street Journal, which got a peek at the 75-page document. But its message of walking on eggshells around the locals is not going over well with U.S. Marine Gen. John Allen, the top military commander in Afghanistan.
"Gen. Allen did not author, nor does he intend to provide, a foreword," said Col. Tom Collins, a spokesman for the U.S.-led coalition in Afghanistan. "He does not approve of its contents."
More than three dozen attacks by Afghan soldiers have claimed the lives of some 63 members of the U.S.-led coalition this year. The insider attacks could jeopardize plans to transfer full security control to Afghan forces in 2014.

Get our troops the Hell out of there.
I wonder if Boy Wonder had Bill Ayers pen this little handbook.
Gee. I wonder what SFB came up with this idea?
“The Taliban are great, women should be beaten and I love to **** little boys!” - American Servicemen, under orders from Hussein.
That can't be said loudly enough! Either let our troops wreck the place and then rape them of their natural resources, or get the hell out so those backward smucks can enjoy their pleasant lifestyle.
Americans serving in Afghanistan warns them not to speak ill about the Taliban, advocate womens rights
How crazy is that! If you advocate for women’s rights you ARE insulting the Taliban. That’s just nuts.
I wonder if Gen John Allen’s vocal displeasure about this handbook had any bearing on the FBI perusal of the emails between himself and Jill Kelley of Tampa.
Uggh i hope this is a nightmare and i will wake up soon :(
>>Get our troops the Hell out of there.
Bring them home and give them jobs drilling, fracking, refining, and moving domestic oil. Cut off food shipments to the middle east. Let those demon-worshipping savages eat each other. When there’s one left, send a sniper over to blow his head off.

How crazy is that! If you advocate for womens rights you ARE insulting the Taliban. Thats just nuts.
I think that means you are you NOT to insult the Taliban OR advocate for women’s rights.
We have met the enemy...and he is living large in DC.
And the Bengazi attack was caused by a video. Our country is run by idiots.
“Do not pass judgement on the heroin-dealing pedophiles”

Man oh man, THAT one is for the books...
Is this coming from the (Major) Nidal Malik Hasan support group? Sure sounds like it!
I am living in the freakin' Twilight Zone.
I think that means you are you NOT to insult the Taliban OR advocate for womens rights.
As Eric Nordstrom, former Regional Security Officer at the U.S. Embassy in Libya, said to Congress..."the Taliban is in the building."
Our country has been infiltrated (at the very top) by the enemy.
And we have a POTUS that would likely fail security clearances for an FBI or Secret Service job.
Thus, the inspiration of my tagline, which was changed the day Mr. Nordstorm uttered those words.
It cannot be distilled any more simply than this--the enemy is in the White House.
In the State Department.
In the Pentagon.
In the CIA.
