In the US Military; Everything is Readiness, Except actual Readiness
US Defense Watch ^ | November 7, 2021 | Ray Starmann

Posted on 11/7/2021, 4:41:58 PM by pboyington
Oh, the reports just keep filtering in; little bits and pieces of incompetence, bad leadership, cowardice, a myriad of bolos and buffoons; ships running aground, ships on fire, being chased off in the Sea of Oman by the Iranians in Babe Winkelman’s bass boat, submariners and their Marxist wives selling secrets, Marines losing on their own turf last week…
Isn’t wokeness fun? Thanks to the left and cowardly senior leaders, the US armed forces have become the Benny Hill Show with high explosives.
In today’s military, everything is readiness except actual readiness. Readiness defined as training for war every day, aka warfighting, aka focus on military subjects during the training day.
Readiness has taken on a whole new meaning that must be worn like a Young Pioneer’s silk scarf and fit into the Maoist Cultural Revolution engulfing the military and the country like a ten alarm fire.
Political correctness is readiness. Wokeness is readiness. Feminism is readiness. Trans-genderism is readiness. Pan-genderism is readiness. Inclusion is readiness.
In 2015, the Secretary of the Army, John McHugh directed all US Army worldwide commands to “balance lactation support and readiness.”
Never in a million years did I think I’d ever hear the words breastfeeding, lactation and US Army all used in the same sentence.
The G2 (senior intelligence officer) for a US Army division recently wrote on social media that diversity is readiness. How is that possible? According to this Maoist illogic, only by having a correct amount of soldiers with self-proclaimed victim statuses, i.e. women, minorities, gays, trannies, etc., will success be guaranteed in war.
Is there a new formula we’re supposed to calculate that will give us instant diversity and therefore victory on a battlefield? Let’s see for a squad of 10, I would need 4 straight minority women, 1 tranny, 1 homosexual, 1 pan gender, 2 lactating mothers, and 1 combo of any of the above. Therefore, with this ‘diversity’, this incredible inclusion, it will enable a team, a squad, a platoon, a company, a battalion, a brigade, a division, a corps, an army to fight and win on a battlefield. Forget about actual training for war. That’s all passe. That’s all part of the old army that colonizer military comprised of those toxic males.
And, this person is running the intelligence section of a division?
A recent smattering of events from the last month, should make any sane individual conclude that the US military isn’t ready for anything, except losing, and in military parlance, losing means dying, it means America’s youth being sent home in Hefty trash bags because the military’s leadership is comprised of left wing crackpots and moral cowards whose dereliction of duty and conduct unbecoming is so obvious it stands out like a tenfold beacon in the night.
A recent event, I’m calling the ‘Massacre at 29 Palms’ more than illustrates how absolutely eight up the US military is now. Last week, a combined British Royal Marines, Canadian, Dutch and UAE forces virtually annihilated the Marines in Exercise Green Dagger, which is designed to test any Marine force preparing for an overseas deployment.
Apparently, the Marines were so heavily trounced that they had to call for a reset. Good God, 29 Palms is the Marines’ back yard.
It would be one thing if a Marine unit was taken down by another Marine unit, but by a combined allied force is just embarrassing.
I ran into the Dutch Army once in 1992. They were packing up 24 hours into a 7 day exercise after a trouncing. Their soldiers, with long hair and beards looked like a Blue Oyster Cult tribute band. If WW3 had broken out in Europe, the Soviet Third Shock Army would have gone through Holland faster than a bottle of Amstel light through a wooden shoe.
As for the UAE forces; what – four Bedouins, a couple Nissan pick-up trucks and ten camels? A force to be reckoned with.
And, the Royal Marines and the Canadians are woke too. No doubt about it. This could have been called the Woke Bowl. I guess they’re less woke than we are. Senator Josh Hawley, was so outraged at the conduct of the Marines that he told General Mark Milley to ‘stop using the military as a giant social experiment’ and ‘train them to fight.’
Meanwhile, in the Pentagon, General Milley is preparing for a new gig in two weeks as a Beetle Bailey helium balloon in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade in Manhattan
Ten hut…
And, the Joint Chiefs, those Merchants of Featherdom, just added a new piece of fruit salad, this one the Woke Service Medal, for outstanding meritorious achievement in helping to destroy the US military as an actual fighting force and turning it into an off-Broadway musical.
Check out Ike’s uniform or any of the Class A’s of yesteryear, only adorned with a CIB, a top row of three ribbons, maybe a pair of jump wings, not the obscene Chilean Junta JROTC outfits so common today among today’s senior leaders.
The mission of the US military is simple – it is to kill people and break things, period. It’s obvious that a majority of the military’s senior leaders, senior defined as those above the rank of 0-5 (lieutenant colonel or commander and above), do not believe that anymore. To them the military is some kind of camouflaged make-believe land, where they can dress up, get paid, toss out a few military terms every day, while they work feverishly to create more chaos by either instigating or following along with every left-wing crackpot idea that comes their way.
In reality land, the only thing the US military is ready for is a cataclysmic ass kicking from the Chinese.
Training for war, aka, actual readiness, means not spending all day on social media to see how many likes you got colonel or general, after you just posted some inane comment about celebrating Lesbian Punjabi Heritage Month or salivating about some Tri Delt sorority girl with a pink bow in her hair who just breezed through Camp
Wokeness, aka Ranger School without breaking a sweat.
Funny, how they’re all plump when they graduate, isn’t it?
Hmm… almost like there are no more standards…Shhh….
Every time I see a post with another smiling female graduate of Ranger School, I think about things like Merrill’s Marauders conducting a 1000 mile forced march through the Burmese jungle, or those guys at Pointe du Hoc; that 150 feet vertical climb with one of the greatest armies in history trying to kill you, those Rangers on the mean streets of Mogandishu, outnumbered 10,000 to 1, and people like Rogers and Darby and how wokeness has destroyed everything they built in literally one politically correct swoop of insanity.
How can this wokeness insanity stop? We need the GOP to retake the House and retake the Presidency. We need a real Secretary of Defense who will purge the military of political correctness and s-can many senior leaders. We need a massive naval buildup and a Manhattan type Project to create new technology that will render China’s missile threat inoperable.
We need a lot of stuff and we need it fast.
Major Robert Rogers once wrote, 250 years ago, ‘Don’t forget nothin.’
Well, we’ve forgotten everything. And, if we don’t start remembering, we’re going be speaking Chinese soon.
Comment from the FR thread:

To: pboyington Don't blame the democrats. Not this time.
I cannot remember the manual that spelled out U.S. Military Doctrine, but two years after Herbert Walker Bush became President a new Doctrine was published. In that new manual we learned for the 1st time a new term; OOTWA (Operations Other Than War).
We were stunned.
We also had a pretty clear idea of where we were headed.
We have now arrived.
Damn you Bush Family.

I suppose it’s normal to laugh at the Americans and what they are going through right now with the current administration!.whether you are from Canada or somewhere in Europe!.what a laugh the yanks are!..yet somehow us Europeans are no better!..we started wars and were quite happy to let the Americans finish and even pay for them!. We have a radical left wing administration that seems bent on self destruction or even the country!. the next 18 months I think will determine what happens in the United States..for good or bad!..is Europe any better!?

No I think they are worse, at least in my country of birth when they let soldiers have long hair and form a union.
I am not sure if that has changed.

Rings a bell, I was told by former WW2 German soldiers "watch out for the yellow fever that will come"

Pboyington, is the US equivalent to the legion's DCLXVI, a knobber who hides behind a pseudonym 😡😡. Why don't these people come out with their real names, at least they would give some credibility to what they are saying.
At least he's not complaining about the Pelle US :LOL::LOL:🤣🤣

Very well put Sir. The EU socialist project is a complete failure, thank God for Brexit, at least the Brits woke up to the BS that is Brussels, open border madness. Crazy, and the indigenous people of those lands have zero say in the matter. Zero. How the hell it got to this is beyond me. Remember, these people are the exact race and nationals that kicked us out of nearly all of "their" lands in the 50's to the 80's post colonisation, yet they want to come to the West and British Commonwealth lands still run and managed by white men and women of Judo Christian values, why is that?, because they want to have their cake and eat it.

I can confirm that as an insider of current Dutch things unfortunately, I wouldn't be surprised if soon military personnel here next to blood type will have preferred pronouns and self-identified gender written down on their dog tags. Half of them are at home in burnout anyways, like most of the populace.

I certainly do not believe that Brit Paras or RM Cdos are woke. I read reports on Ex Green Dagger at 29 Palms the USMC backyard.

The RMs' have developed small unit teams that are self sufficient, shoot and scoot. They also use drones, UAVs' and other electronic gizmos. Arriving covertly at target areas they prevailed. USMC tactics were of old ' Les grand Bataillons'. The theory of overwhelming force. This failed against hard hitting small forces, which continually changed locations.

The RM Cdo mindset is simple ; Be the first to understand, the first to adapt and respond; and the first to overcome.

A USMC General now studying RM tactics which have changed dramatically under the new Commando role concept of 2 years ago and is now being implemented.

Susan has been warning me over the years about the threat to the Indo Pacific Basin. Chinese desire for expansion is massive. Almost like Liebensraum of old with Germany but backed by military might and financial inducements. Australia with its mineral wealth may one day be a target. Of course we have the so called China sea with the Spratley Islands, PI and Vietnam all very worried by Chinese incursions and man made islands with military installations. Currently they are investing very heavily in cyber electronics.

DCXLVI, Actually Cpl Kant CCL :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:in the 1ère REG :love::LOL::ROFLMAO:. lately going by the name of Satans (sic) Slave, informs me (on my YouTube channel) to tell Papillion that he knows where he lives and that the boxing is on. He also informs me, via the same channel that he has published all my documents on line and that (alas) cervens is going down. So guys, it's been nice knowing you, and although he wasn't complaining about Pelle US's, I think that his threats should be taken quite seriously.:coffee:
BTW, does he know that Papillion bet his house on the Euro cup and is now is now looking for lodgings elsewhere? :whistle::unsure:
And no, it isn't some cheap publicity stunt on my part in collaboration with our CCL dude, to get people to watch my channel. In fact I'll post the said video on here:

Cpl. Kant CCL, 1ere REG is simply a misguided cretin and is not worth listening to or written space.

The less publicity he gets the better. He has become Lord Haw Haw for the FFL and Cervens.

And we all know what happened to Lord HH.:)
Sewage is an international problem due to climate change, well that’s what the experts say at Cop26, well as I have witnessed first hand a bit of 💩 travelling from the USA to France I’m going to believe them on this one😂

I'd say there's a bit of apples to oranges compairson here. Yes Twenty-nine Palms is a USMC Base, the largest in fact because it hosts Desert Warfare and more training. The Marines there were not permanent personnel, the permanent personnel are mainly support, but there are Grunt Units there as their home base, 3rd Battalion 11th Marines comes to mind, they are Artillery. The majority of Marines there are on work-ups, training for deployments or unit training to hone skills. Hats off to the Royal Marines for a great job and thanks for the spanking, it will only make hings better. Also, I'd like to wager if the Marine Corps brought out ther RM's equavalent things would be different, let's say better than the performance turned in. Let's say the Marine Corps brought out the same numbers and went up against the UK in a reversa one would see the same results. Training is training, but where the bullet hits the meat, I like our chances.

I'd like to point out while Biden is in office things will only get worse, DEMOCRATS only use the military to push their very Woke Agenda...I mean I can see noting going wrong in the Barracks after a night of drinking and rough house and a They Prounoun walks in with a lecture on being brutal and testorone filled cavemen, my advice would be learn to fly, I see arms flailing as one flys off the second deck

They destroy the US Military, China is laughing their asses off, but i'd caution the paper tiger, numbers and tech do not equate to battle hardend Marines and Soldiers that spent the last 20 years in the real world, not doing drive bys of Tiwan.

I think the spanking was a very good spanking, I'll give you that one. But Marines are always evolving, lessons learned and taught well, my money is on the Marines. Did you ever train with Marines or US Army airborne in your time?

I hate to say this but I feel I have to. Her Majesty's largest ship is an Aircraft Carrier, a quite nice one, but the problem is it's the only one and they did without for about 10-years or so. The Carrier didn't even have any aircraft, they borrowed one from the....USMC, the Marine Version of the F-35, VSTOL. Seeing as the Carrier is designed for the F-35s or Harriers, I am glad we obliged Her Majesty's Navy.
