    Interview with Patton's driver during WW2. TWO important notes in this video: Jeff Sanza states he was there when Ike radioed him to STOP and not go further to Berlin. The driver states he saw tears go down Patton's face because he didnt want the Soviets there and it clearly upset him. Patton wanted to be in Berlin 2) The REAL story for eh slapping incident: NO, it was NOT a slap across the face. Idiot liberal media back then had in it for Patton. At 12:30 MARK but watch the entire 16 minute video, it's great.
  • Biden Joint Chiefs Nom Embraces ‘Gender Advisers’ for Troops

    President Joe Biden's nominee for the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told the Senate "gender advisers" for combat troops are critical to the United States' success, a position some veterans say is nothing more than a left-wing initiative that distracts from the military's core duties. The revelation came during a Dec. 8 exchange with Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D., N.H.), who asked how Adm. Christopher Grady intends to implement "women, peace, and security" legislation within the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

    Ukraine and Taiwan are proxy fights over the soul of American foreign policy: does it exist to protect America's security interests, or everyone else's?If you thought for one moment that the embarrassing multi-decade debacle in Afghanistan would lead to some soul-searching from the failed interventionists responsible for America’s 21st-century Vietnam, think again. Instead of taking a step back to understand exactly why and how their grandiose plans to use the mightiest military in history to impose a top-down, secular, Western-style democracy didn’t quite pan out, they’re doubling down on failure.When you’re a hammer, everything is a nail, and when you’re...

    The Biden administration on Wednesday announced it stopped housing evacuated Afghans at one of the military sites that has accommodated them since the summer, citing the increased pace of their resettlement within the U.S. The last group of Afghan families housed at Fort Lee, Virginia, left the U.S. Army post on Wednesday to be resettled in communities across the country, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said. More than 25,000 Afghans relocated to the U.S. following the Taliban's conquest of their homeland have departed domestic military installations to start new lives in America... ...As of Wednesday, 45,000 evacuees from Afghanistan...

    A former U.S. soldier in Pakistan said the U.S. Embassy repeatedly hung up on him as he pleaded for help and wouldn’t let him enter the building to speak with a government official. The former staff sergeant, an Afghan native, said he traveled from the U.S. to Pakistan to try to help his family escape the Taliban and flee Afghanistan.... ...The veteran said the Taliban, ISIS-K and al Qaeda were all at the Pakistan border, making it harder and more dangerous for anyone trying to escape Afghanistan. ... ..."If there's anyone out there that can help me, help my family,...
  • Vaccine Mandates Sow Mass Chaos Throughout Military As Service Members Seek Religious Accommodations: Mixed messaging, unclear consequences, differing deadlines, and exemption goalpost-shifting

    The Federalist ^ | 11/18/2021 | Kylee Zempel
    Mixed messages from the higher-ups, unclear repercussions for refusal, a disparity in treatment among different states and branches of the military, a range of deadlines, and goalpost-shifting on the meaning of religious exemptions have converged to create mass chaos throughout the military as tens of thousands of yet-unvaccinated service members grapple with the COVID-19 vaccine mandate and many seek exemptions.The Pentagon has promised that these requests for accommodation, which are mostly religious but include some medical, will be considered on a “case-by-case” basis, but that assurance provides no clarity about the military’s subjective process for assessing the sincerity of religious...

    ...House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., agreed during her trip to Scotland with a suggestion that the U.S. military is an egregious polluter.

    Townhall.com ^ | October 27, 2021 | Daniel Gade and Daniel Huang
    Amid the chaos of the final US withdrawal from Afghanistan, commentators from across the political spectrum have lamented the abandonment of our Afghan allies, many of whom served critical roles in our military’s mission. Many have also reiterated the commitment to honor our veterans from the twenty-year Global War on Terror. resident Biden explicitly said as much in his address to the nation on August 31: “The cost of war they will carry with them their whole lives [sic].” Unfortunately, America has already abandoned its veterans—though not in the way most people may think. By any measure, we give more...

    China launched a new hypersonic nuclear-capable missile that circled the entire globe at low-orbit in August, the Financial Times reported. US Intelligence and US Military officials were left stunned. “We have no idea how they did this,” a source told the Financial Times. According to the report, the missile missed its target by about 24 miles and caught US intel by surprise.

    Competition between the United States and China might look less like a single sharp, decisive conflict between Washington and Beijing, and more like a series of militarized conflicts in a broader context of trade and cooperation. This would represent more of an 18th-century appreciation of international conflict, seeing no wars as particularly decisive in themselves, but rather each as a step to improving a state’s position for the next conflict. As Paul von Hindenburg said of annexing the Baltic States into the German Empire during World War I, “I need them for the manoeuvring of my left wing in the...

They witnessed firsthand our television generals’ complete surrender to the Taliban with the loss of 13 great Warriors and the handing over of $85 billion of the best and most expensive Military equipment in the World—China and Russia are already reverse engineering the equipment so they can build it for themselves.

    There is no greater danger to the country than this effort to politicize the military by ensuring that all officers hew to the political party line of this administration.resident Joe Biden and his administration are continuing to purge and politicize the American military. Consistent with the totalitarian left’s effort to control curricula down to the grade-school level, their latest effort targets the education of America’s future military leaders at the service academies: The U. S. Military Academy at West Point, the Naval Academy at Annapolis, and the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. This is not happening by accident. And...

    A three-star U.S. Army lieutenant general caught some attention over the weekend when she referred to British troops as Americans. In a now-deleted tweet on Saturday, Lt. Gen. Maria Gervais tweeted a photo of dozens of troops crammed together while sleeping in tight confines. “This picture is worth 1000 words—thanks to these American hero’s #Grateful.” Gervais’ tweet quickly caught attention from social media commentators who soon noticed that the troops crammed together in the picture were not in fact Americans. Instead, the troops pictured were British. Gervais deleted the erroneous tweet, but not before it was archived and the post...
  • Our Incompetent Woke Military: Three Star General Posts Photo She Thinks Are U.S. Troops Leaving Afghanistan–Turns Out They’re British

    U.S. Army Lieutenant General Maria Gervais, who heads up the Army’s Training and Doctrine Command posted a photo Saturday of what she thought were U.S. troops leaving Afghanistan, but it turns out they were British troops later IDed as being with the 16th Air Assault Brigade. Getting that third star apparently doesn’t take much in today’s woke military. Not noticing the British uniforms and weaponry (SA80s), Gervais tweeted Saturday morning, “This picture is worth 1000 words—thanks to these American hero’s. #Grateful” 18 minutes later Gervais acknowledged her error, “Absolutely correct— British troops— thankful to our British heroes and all who...

    Junior softball player and West Point Cadet Leila Hurst is a genius, leading the charge in the war against unkempt beds. “Every morning until noon, cadets are in what’s called AMI (AM inspection),” wrote former Cadet Andrew Hutchinson. “When you’re in AMI, your door has to be propped open 90 degrees, your room has to be clean, and your bed perfectly made with hospital corners in the comforter. And there’s no sleeping allowed.” It’s not so easy to get up at the crack of dawn every day and make your bed to perfection. I don’t think I’ve ever woken up...

    Joe Biden’s emergency Afghanistan press conference Monday accomplished exactly the opposite of instilling confidence in the American regime, by neither promising accountability for this catastrophic failure nor releasing a plan to stabilize the situation, reassure our allies, and recapture at least some deterrence against our watching enemies. This is a disaster with evil consequences that will reverberate long and far.The lack of accountability worsens the debacle by teaching Americans, our friends, and our foes that things this grossly incompetent will happen again. As Ben Domenech pointed out Monday, “Whoever Biden doesn’t fire, their performance Biden believes is acceptable. If this...
