The following article will prove how foolish American Leaders are becoming.  The Taliban are probably ecstatic with joy over these changes.  When one lacks Wisdom they are prone to swallow stupidity .  American Soldiers are in dire straits when they have to submit to stupidity.  Where are the Liberal Women in America speaking out about the daily abuse of Women in Islamic Society?

The latest politically correct outrage—Proposed Army manual



 The politically correct “blame America first” syndrome has reared its absurd head again—this time in a proposed Army manual for troops in Afghanistan (see Fox News story below, highlights added).

In effect, the manual is implying that the increase in Afghan soldier attacks on Americans is due to insensitivity to Afghan culture.

This latest politically correct outrage is so bad that Marine Gen. John Allen, the top military commander in Afghanistan, isn’t happy with it.

Good. A voice of reason.



Proposed Army manual tells G.I.s not to insult Taliban, speak up for women

Published December 12, 2012

A proposed new handbook for Americans serving in Afghanistan warns them not to speak ill about the Taliban, advocate women’s rights or criticize pedophilia, and the general in charge is not happy with it.

The draft of the newest Army handbook seems to suggest that ignorance of Afghan culture is to blame for deadly attacks by Afghan soldiers against the coalition forces, according to The Wall Street Journal, which got a peek at the 75-page document. But its message of walking on eggshells around the locals is not going over well with U.S. Marine Gen. John Allen, the top military commander in Afghanistan.

“Gen. Allen did not author, nor does he intend to provide, a foreword,” said Col. Tom Collins, a spokesman for the U.S.-led coalition in Afghanistan. “He does not approve of its contents.”

More than three dozen attacks by Afghan soldiers have claimed the lives of some 63 members of the U.S.-led coalition this year. The insider attacks could jeopardize plans to transfer full security control to Afghan forces in 2014.

“He does not approve of its contents.” – Col. Tom Collins, a spokesman for U.S. Marine Gen. John Allen

But a claim by their own government that they’re to blame is not likely to buoy the spirits of Americans risking their lives to serve.

“Many of the confrontations occur because of [coalition] ignorance of, or lack of empathy for, Muslim and/or Afghan cultural norms, resulting in a violent reaction from the [Afghan security force] member,” the Journal quotes the draft handbook as saying.

The version reviewed by the Journal is still subject to revisions, Lt. Gen. David Perkins, commander of the Army’s Combined Arms Center at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., told the Journal.

The study, based on interviews with 600 members of the Afghan security forces and 200 American soldiers, painted a grim portrait of opposing cultures with simmering disdain for their counterparts.

The draft handbook includes a summary stating that some U.S. soldiers consider Afghan forces to be “basically stupid” thieves, “gutless in combat,” “profoundly dishonest” and engaged in “treasonous collusion and alliances with enemy forces.”

The draft handbook offers a list of “taboo conversation topics” that soldiers should avoid, including “making derogatory comments about the Taliban,” “advocating women’s rights,” “any criticism of pedophilia,” “directing any criticism toward Afghans,” “mentioning homosexuality and homosexual conduct” or “anything related to Islam,” according to the Journal.
