This Is NO Way to Win a War, Mr. Dumbsfeld!

This Is NO Way to Win a War, Mr. Dumbsfeld!

The ever-ready-to-lend-moral-support-to-the-Jihadists AP has once again eagerly stepped forward with yet ANOTHER military-bashing story about how two soldiers in Afghanistan have been charged with . . .  (horror-film music please). . . . charged with (I can hardly bear to type this atrocity) “allegedly punching two detainees in the chest, shoulders and stomach at a military base in Afghanistan.”  My God!  What an unspeakable horror! (Not!)

Reading further down the article, one learns that one of the two alleged war crimes “victims” has already been released from custody (and is presumably still working under his own power) and that the other war crimes victim is still in custody – and, apparently, not on life support, either.

I am sure that you – as I am – are deeply “shocked, SHOCKED!” to hear that two EEEEEEEEEEVIL US soldiers actually used their (gasp!) fists(!) to bring a couple of recalcitrant Taliban detainees into line.  I mean – as EVERYONE knows – the Taliban are fine, upstanding people, who have their quaint little ways of putting bullets in the back of the heads of women whom they accuse of being naughty.  I am sure our upstanding AP reporter would love to open a room in his own home to a couple of Taliban boarders.

Note for the record:  The Taliban are NOT members of any organized army and they do NOT enjoy standing under the Geneva Conventions.  (Try telling that to our ACLU-friendly military lawyers – that’s right: MILITARY LAWYERS IN UNIFORM who extend our Jihadist enemies rights our enemies would never DREAM of extending to US troops under their control!)

How quickly we forget that the reason we went to Afghanistan is to kill and bomb Taliban in the first place.  

Somebody help me . . .  Why is it okay to drop a bomb on these unorganized, rag-tag ruffians in a mountain redoubt, but somehow magically WRONG to punch them for being uncooperative in custody.  This is – in my book – insanity.

And, yet, we have it straight from a member of the “Perfumed Princedom,” Brig. Gen. Jack Sterling, a deputy coalition commander,” – apparently in connection with this “punching atrocity” issue, that “The command remains committed to investigate all allegations of misconduct and will hold individuals responsible for their actions consistent with U.S. military law . . . blah, blah, blah.”  (Actually, I added the “blah, blah, blah” part.)

Investigate?  INVESTIGATE?  No wonder this war is dragging out longer than necessary.  We are diverting too many resources – in the form of press conferences, ass-covering (by the higher-ups), investigations, and court-martials – from the task at hand of crushing the freaking enemy.

How do I suggest that the well-scented BG Sterling should have answered the reporter’s question regarding this “Taliban-detainee-punching-atrocity” incident?  “Next question?” would have been a good start.

If the reporter had persisted, the general should have leveled him/her/it with an icy stare and said, “If you are so concerned with the Taliban, go live on THEIR base and go to THEIR press conferences, you seditionist asshat.  We are here to fight a war and kick some serious Taliban ass.  If punching a few of their thugs in the mug gets them to cooperate, then our soldiers will punch them in the mug.  If burning a few of their bodies gets their attention, then our soldiers will burn their bodies.  Hell, in the early 1900s General “Blackjack” Pershing executed Islamic Filipino Moros rebels with bullets dipped in pig fat.  If that is what it takes here, we will do that, as well.”

But, of course, everyone knows I am engaging in a political wet dream.  No one in the hand-wringing, jihadist-pleasing, politically-correct Bush/Rice State Department or in the Bush/Dumbsfeld Pentagon would ever even IMAGINE uttering – let alone condoning – such words at a press conference.  I mean, their first line of attack with an openly hostile media is “Try appeasement, appeasement, appeasement.  And if at first you do not succeed, try appeasement yet once again.”

I wonder if anyone in Washington EVER goes to the movies and watches how the stars of spy thrillers are treated in captivity – or how they in turn treat the bad guys under their power.

Even when watching fiction, people INTUITIVELY understand that the likes of the Taliban do not QUALIFY FOR, nor DESERVE the special “red-carpet” Geneva-Conventions treatment that they are receiving in Guantanamo (will that be chicken curry or stuffed grape leaves, Mr. Muhammad, Sir?) – and now, apparently, in Afghanistan itself, where – as even the pro-Taliban AP author of this piece acknowledges: “[The] Taliban, [is] a rebel group accused of committing widespread abuses itself.”

Moreover, our American military prison guards in Afghanistan are being pilloried for treating Afghan prisoners FAR BETTER than even Afghan national prison-guard counterparts do.  Once again, even our AP shill must concede, “Mistreatment of detainees by Afghan police and Afghan prison guards is not unusual, according to human rights advocates.”  Question, Dear Reader:  Do you think that Afghan prison guards always stop at mere “punching?”

This is NO freaking WAY to fight a war!  We have SECDEF Dumbsfeld and his Perfumed Princes (and Princesses – lest we forget the ever-growing number of women wearing stars on their shoulders – women who (Thank God!) have never served in ground combat, and who, therefore, are NOT FIT to lead our soldiers in harm’s way).

Once again: It is later than we think.  Dumbsfeld needs to be canned immediately.  This war (the worldwide struggle against Islamofascists) must begin to be prosecuted in earnest.  Time to STOP taking (falsely AP-accused US Soldiers’) names and to START kicking Taliban, al-Qaeda, and other Jihadist ass IN EARNEST!

And, as Michael Savage says on his radio show, it is time for the Bush/Dumbsfeld Pentagon to grow a pair and to remove all hostile embedded reporters from living, working, and traveling with our troops, from which vantage point they act as ideological “snipers” for the enemy.

Hi, Mil Mom! What? Me? Angry??? What ever gave you a crazy idea like that? (/sarcasm.) Actually, I find that blogging gives me an opportunity to get some of this stuff out there so I don't have an aneurysm or a stroke (yet, at least) over the nonsense I see going on. As far as I can tell, the Bush/Rice/Dumbsfeld Team has YET to stare down a seditionist reporter and tell him/her/it very matter-of-factly that our INTENTION is to inflict as much pain, misery, death, and destruction as possible on the worldwide jihadist enemy until he surrenders. (Too bad, too! Because Bush's approval numbers would skyrocket if he and his key people would talk straight to the press like that -- instead of the way the sickeningly mealy-mouthed White House SpokesWimp Scott McClellan avoids substantive answers on a daily basis. (See WND's Les Kinsolving's columns for examples of this absurd White House ritual.) Thank you, again, Mil Mom, for visiting and commenting! -- gunjam

I so agree! How rediculous this world has become. How many US soldiers have died this month alone? 84? And we are worried about maltreatment of the Taliban? HA! It's just unbelievable.

Hi, kelly! Thank you for the visit and post! Good thoughts! Yes: It's time for the politically-correct inside-the-Washington-DC-Beltway gang to wake up to the realities of this very 21st Century War. Outdated, early-20th-Century formulas of battlefield conduct have no place in it. This is a return to traditional, no-holds-barred ancient war, as in biblical times.
