New Army Manual Orders Soldiers Not To Criticize Taliban
Judicial Watch ^ | December 11, 2012 | Judicial Watch

Posted on 12/13/2012 5:44:17 AM PST by DJ Taylor

Here is a strong indicator that the Obama Administration’s 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 infiltration—is 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.”

That’s ok,
I’ll criticize the gutter religion of peace and female mutilation etc regardless if the U.N. makes those criticisms a crime.
F-em.

They murdered 3000 in an hour on the homeland,
and now they murder Americans with impunity.

The Pentagon (bombed by the Taliban) now obeys them.
Our Congress and pRes_ _ent support them in their
murders and no doubt Hillary is bringing them here
by the hundreds.

America is so screwed.

There are a large number of people serving in the military who don't think that's the case either. It would be racist to think that, after all.

Every single person (I was going to say American, but many aren’t Americans) who voted for Obama is a traitor to the United States of America and should be treated as such. How long will our military listen to Obama? When will they say “enough is enough”?

Thankfully, the 'Guidebook For Marines' doesn't say anything like that.

Yet.

Don’t criticize pedophilia? And if an American soldier should come across a child being molested he should A.Discreetly close the door and move along B. Be sure condoms are available C.If it is a soldier in his unit, say absolutely nothing and go on with the mission.Treat the soldier no differently than any other soldier in the unit D Use his rifle with effect. Silly? Get used to it. This is how our new homosexual friendly military is evolving under Obama. Soon it will be the American soldier who will be required to have counseling and “therapy” if he finds the scene reprehensible.

When I retired from the Army last year due to age I was ready to be dragged out kicking & screaming (well, sort of). For me it was the end of a way of life & belonging to something much larger than self.

I regret to say now that I’m a happy retiree & no longer part of our Dempseyized PC military. The Taliban sensitivity manual just about takes the cake.

More moronic material from the nobama monkeys. Did these pinheaded nobama cretins prepare a manual for the tallyban saying that they should not criticize the US? More pure insanity by the LIB-mentality fools.

So we must be careful not to offend the feelings of bearded savages who pray every morning to kill Christians and Jews?

The American people made the biggest mistake in their history in reelecting the current occupant of the oval office.

The only reason I can possibly see for this, is if you were working alongside *trusted* foreign nationals that may have taliban sympathies. If it saves a life, I guess it’s ok, but I can’t imagine anyone taking it very seriously.

And they’re also forbidden to criticize pedophilia.

I SO wish we’d left that mess to the Soviets. Actually, we should’ve helped THEM instead of those filthy, subhuman muslims.

I totally agree. If, on 12 September 2001, we'd have predicted THIS within 11 years, we'd have been laughed off the planet.

Personally, I consider that there can be no greater historical irony than that Moslems destroyed the World Trade Center, with the loss of two thousand plus lives, and ten years later... Americans elected a Moslem president!

One wonders what future historians will make of that preposterous tidbit...

That was my first thought...with a volunteer armed forces, who in hell would join now? The rape of the ROE will destroy our military and us, in the end.

To join the military a person now must accept the following under penalty of law:
1. Homosexuality practiced before them and within their ranks.
2. Homosexual marriages in their Christian churches.
3. Females within their combat ranks.
4. Females not deploying which places further demands on them.
5. Wiccan and other cults.
6. Islam as a friend.
7. Disclosure of classified information by the President on down that can get them killed.
8. Looong and numerous deployments.

Why would anyone join such an organization?

Count again. It was only seven years later.

Yes, if the American soldier can accept this, our goal of "Nation Building" has failed miserably in Afghanistan; they didn't become more like us, we became more like them.

That’s typical Islamic/Muslim strategy:

1. Commit acts of terrorism, killing many.

2. When condemned for it, play the victim card.

3. Playing the victim card, use resulting sympathy to
place Muslims in high places in government and
corporations; gain special privileges and exemptions from
laws and the police; silence criticism of Islam; get
Sharia law passed; make polygamy legal and widespread;
increase Muslim population, thus Muslim voters;
ultimately own the country.
