Posted on 09/12/2012 12:09:03 PM PDT by kristinn
General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the U.S. military's Joint Chiefs of Staff, spoke with Pastor Terry Jones by phone on Wednesday and asked him to withdraw his support for a film whose portrayal of the Prophet Mohammad has sparked violent protests - including one that ended with the death of America's envoy to Libya

So I interpret this article to mean that General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the U.S. military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff, just seceded the war on terror to the terrorists? Where will the articles of unconditional surrender be signed? Mecca?............/frothing at the mouth mad & sick of this liberal shiite sarc
Maybe if the Marxist General could find a better strategy to neutralize the Islamic threat he would not have to call a small town preacher and beg him to back off.
Are you kidding me?
(coincidentally The Jerk was born a poor black boy too!)
This is Bush-Obama neocon-leftist policy of appeasment and near treason. We need Muslim support for Democracy, ergo we must debase ourselves like Dhimmi. And all to help spread Islamism with the Democracy Jihad.
Hey, where’d ya go? You’re still getting your ass handed to you in this thread, would hate to see you miss one glorious moment of it! LOL
Blaming Jones is a convenient excuse. He’s being used as a patsy.
The whole “film caused the riots” story is too quick, too easy, and too insistent from this crew to be believed.
These were staged, coordinated attacks on our people resulting in murder, by the groups that this POS admin put in place.
And they want to blame some obscure American Pastor - who has every damned right in the world to make whatever film he decides to make, if in fact he DID make a film - to conveniently cover up whatever intelligence failure they may have had.
After Operation Fast And Furious and their blatant, outright attempt to wipe out our Second Amendment, I believe NOTHING that comes out of their lying faces.
That a US General Officer should be calling a private citizen to “suggest” that he back off is just beyond the pale - but again, with this crowd, why is ANYTHING surprising to anyone out here. “Suggestions” from the govzilla are ultimately backed up with the implied threat of coercive force. To me, it appears to be an attack on the First Amendment now - a ready-made excuse to label anything that offends these animals as “Hate Speech”.
Election Day in November is Take Out The Trash Day. Priority One.
If leftist idiots can dream up a connection between Sam Bacile's film and the murders in Libya, I wonder what they will say when this film comes out and innocent Americans die as a result???
Trailer for Kathryn Bigelow's forthcoming film about the killing of Osama bin Laden, Zero Dark Thirty, is released online
The first trailer for Kathryn Bigelow's forthcoming film about the killing of Osama Bin Laden has debuted online.
Now titled Zero Dark Thirty, the drama from the double Oscar-winning director of The Hurt Locker features a high-profile cast including Jessica Chastain, Joel Edgerton, Mark Duplass, Kyle Chandler and Mark Strong. It centres on the US Navy Seal unit that raided Bin Laden's compound in northern Pakistan on 2 May last year on the orders of US president Barack Obama, killing the al-Qaeda leader in a covert operation.
No doubt the mob organizers—MB and AQ. It is just a pretext to draw a big crowd to cover their activities.
Dear General Dempsey: The pastor might feel constrained by his vocation from giving you the only answer that is appropriate. So allow me to do so in his stead: ..l.
Like I posted above at #256:
“...To me, it appears to be an attack on the First Amendment now - a ready-made excuse to label anything that offends these animals as Hate Speech.
In any sane world this would be the end of his career.
“..Is this a violation of the Posse Comitatus Act?...”
Do you honestly think this admin CARES?
Time doenst equal right,,, my FRiend...
You mean the pastor who had NOTHING to do with the film referenced?
It's insulting. Blaming anyone or anything but Islam is absurd.

Apparently under this administration it is the job of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs to call pastors and beg them to withdraw materials that might offend Muslims.
Be afraid, America. Be very afraid.
We need more compassionate wars on those who anger the Muslims and their religion of peace. Bring Islam here in great numbers, to help Americans understand.
It's time that reckless dipstick put a sock between his purple lips.
His right to speak is getting people killed and it's swelling the ranks of Al-Qaeda.
Hey wait a minute.... if his comments are true (the tensions it will inflame and the violence it will cause,” )
Then doesn’t that mean violent video games and violent movies are to blame for Columbine and other mass shootings/crimes when the evidence shows the killer played these games and watched movies like natural born killers?
This is a perfect example of how character matters. We know Obama has no character and he surrounds himself with people without character.
General, do you remember the specific instance when you decided to become a political puppet to further your career?
After watching this media attack Romney today to cover up the unprecedented errors from the Embassy, State Department , and White House, and now this...I am beginning to wonder how our nation survives our present situation. We have absolutely bumbling, leftist morons running our country, and an army of radical leftist media members covering for it. We have faced serious media bias for a long time, but this is absolutely outrageous. This foreign policy is going to get many people killed, and likely here at home, and the media is enabling it.
Since the whole premise is wrong, the General is barking up the wrong tree. I guess that’s where the oxymoron “Military Intelligence” came from.
The ragheads aren’t rioting because of the film; they’re rioting because for a solid week at their poor stupid pitiful convention Obummer and the democRATS repeatedly spiked the football over the killing of Bin Ladin.
The rallying cry during the riot had nothing to do with the movie! The rallying cry was, “Obama, Obama, we are a billion MORE Osamas!”
Maybe the General should talk to his Commander in Chief!
They used to wax poetic about how the pen is mightier than the sword, but this is ridiculous. That the head of the Joint Chiefs would call a no-name private citizen in the hopes of staving off regional conflict is one of the most stunning developments in the annals of asymmetric warfare I have ever read.
This might incite every red-blooded American to make fun of Mohammed on YouTube videos. Now let’s see what happens!
Da’ Gen-rull be a career, paper shufflin’ alcoholic retread lifer lackey who has abandoned any semblence of personal pride or dignity and is the errand boy of the _resident in the White Hut.
lol, noone seems to know what movie/video is being blamed for the “inflamed passions” of the muslims, but Dempsey calls Terry Jones. So far I’ve seen three videos or trailers blamed. Dempsey is going to be busy calling everyone.
A private citizen is not in his command. If someone in the Administration wants to call Terry Jones and counsel him it should be someone else.
That is just dumb. DUMB.
al qaeda will say anything to justify their actions.
This has nothing to do with the pastor.
Perhaps you could blame 9/11 on the pastor as well.
It was what it was. An attack on America on 9/11.
An act of war.
Now that the current administration claims that they
buy their b.s. and sends the message that we are weak they (A.Q.) will be back.
NOW that's endangering American lives.
And I suppose the Pastor is free to tell him to take his stars and and shove them where the stars can shine. Generals and Admirals don’t impress me as being exceptional humans and citizens since being out of the army in 1946.
How about the General calling his subordinate commanders instead and make sure all of their deployed troops have their weapons loaded and at the ready so they can defend themselves (and maybe send a few extra Muzzies off to Allah)?
I have a dumb question, is the Joint Chief appointed?
The five oldest and most trusted Islamic sources dont portray Muhammad as a great and godly man. They confirm that he was a thief, liar, assassin, mass murderer, terrorist, warmonger, and an unrestrained sexual pervert engaged in pedophilia, incest, and rape. He authorized deception, assassinations, torture, slavery, and genocide. He was a pirate, not a prophet. According to the Hadith and the Quran, Muhammad and his henchmen plundered their way to power and prosperity.
This 4 star POS is almost as bad in my book....
Possible tagline for you:
" A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week."
~George S. Patton
not just htis idiot though is it, the military has been taken into a pussy fairy unit now, PC cross dressers, homosexuals all now serve openly, we have officers who care more about their futures than this country or the laws or even the men they order.
I say that as I went to a marine recruiting place with my oldest and boy has the military changed,
The marine was a class one fairy PC turd and yes I let it be known after I told him I have done my time
Dempsey you damned traitor. How about demanding that the moslems behave according to the standards of the civilized world instead of demanding we curtail our freedoms?
What happened to your tagline? I always liked it.
This General can lead only “Don’t tell” crowd.
