Suicide By PC
For Gen. Casey, loss of diversity would be an "even greater tragedy." APView Enlarged Image
War On Terror: The No. 1 lesson of the Fort Hood massacre is that political correctness kills. But instead of learning this lesson, the Pentagon is repeating the mistake, putting more soldiers at risk.
Army Chief of Staff Gen. George Casey warns that making the connection between Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan's terrorist act and his Islamic faith could "cause a backlash against some of our Muslim soldiers."
Yet ignoring that connection, despite one red flag after another, is what allowed Hasan allegedly to carry out his own violent backlash against non-Muslim soldiers.
Just a few months ago, Hasan was promoted to major. He passed a security clearance despite evidence he openly engaged in anti-American rants, and even discussed cutting the throats of infidels during a PowerPoint presentation. Now there are reports that U.S. intelligence intercepted contacts between Hasan and al-Qaida.
But shhh! This isn't about Islam. Close your eyes. Look the other way. Do not make the connection.
"It would be an even greater tragedy if our diversity becomes a casualty here," Casey said on Sunday's morning shows. Really? Tell that to the victims of the Muslim terrorist who shouted "Allahu Akbar!" before pumping fellow soldiers full of bullets at close range. Tell it to their grieving families

Based on the headline, for a moment I thought Apple was taking its ad campaign to a whole other level.
You meant Microsoft?
If we lose 100,000 muslim “servicemen” (moles) to save 1 American life, it is worth it.
There is no particular right for muslims to serve in the military and now hundreds of reasons not to allow it.
Obviously the Army needs a vast power point slide show spelling out the merits of diversity. While at it, they should establish Army wide “goals” and ensure in recruiting, schools, promotions there is equality (i.e. proportionate representation, formerly known as quaota's)............. In a way I'm happy I got hurt and am out today. I was fed up with exactly this sort of B.S.
The US Army:
Led by ingratiators to do the unequal,
For the unqualified,
To do the unnecessary and inefficient,
In order to ensure equality.
Two words - promotion, pension. End of story.
Well, not really.
I don’t think MS would make an ad about how PCs drive you to kill yourself.
This Gen Casey is a kutt bissing PC killer. Looking the other way is his main occupation, as well as ducking and cowering.
YOU ARE A DISGRACE GENERAL. WITH ENOUGH CLEANER YOU MIGHT SOMEDAY REMOVE ALL THAT AMERICAN BLOOD OFF YOUR TUNIC.
GET OUT NOW GENERAL. YOU HAVE DISGRACED YOURSELF AND ALL ARMY LEADERSHIP. A VERY LITTLE MAN WITH SUCH BLOOD SOAKED HANDS SHOULD NOT BE IN SUCH A POSITION AS YOU ARE—AND YOU KNOW IT.
Just how many more Americans are you willing to allow to be gunned down General as you maintain your post of Cowardice of the Army?
Please, get out now. Avoid eternal humiliation, if not damnation.
Should we round up all 300 Muslim solders and DOD them?
Should we put Moslem's in internment camps like the Japanese
(I for on think NOT).
Who in our administration will make that move?
Talk is cheap.
Tell us how we can prevent this in the future and do it
constitutionally and legally.
I think the only answer is Intel.
But that was frowned on.
We have an administration that is emboldening
This sort of thing ( attempted terrorist
attack on us soil) is becoming a weekly event now that the
current administration is dismantling a national security
system that kept us safe for 8 years. After a knife through
the heart of the intelligence community we are going to blame the Army?
Elections have consequences and this is one of them.
Expect more in the future. I will be putting the blame
at the feet of the real instigator, the current
administration. The one that think the real terrorists
are pro-lifers, returning soldiers, vets, Christians,
tea party attendees, those with criticisms of the current
>>Should we round up all 300 Muslim solders and DOD them?<<
We should but we won’t.
Casey is a corrupt General, a political hack and paper tiger of political corruption; he should purge himself by way of Adm. Boordas example or hauled to a frontline in person as a foot soldier to see if he really knows what he is talking about!
Since every one is calling For General Casey’s head.
What do they sugest he do?
What can he do that will be approved by the commander in chief.
The real boss, Mr Obama.
We allowed Japanese American soldiers to serve during WWII, but in Europe, not the Asian theater...
The problem here is is out of control political correctness that would not allow any kind of negative comment about a protected class within the US Army. It’s worse than that though.
One of the soldiers who was killed was a female coming home from Iraq because she was 1 1/2 months pregnant. She is another unfortunate symbol of other out of control PC in the military in general, not just the Army...
Not much repeat custom from that type of plan.
Not much repeat custom from that type of plan.
“Diversity” is our communism, a failed ideology, yet protected by our version of PC.
The General proves that “survival tactics” means entirely different things to a grunt on the line and a General officer in Washington.
