Why The U.S. Military Sucks And Why It Will Lose In Afghanistan And Pakistan

Over at Common Dreams there’s a piece by Jeremy Scahill documenting the U.S. military’s activities in proselytizing  Afghanis, or as the the head chaplain put it, soldiers are to ‘hunt people for Christ’.

Almost as a sidelight is this mention of torture preferences among the U.S. population:

The broadcast of this video comes just days after a new poll of White Americans found that, in the US, church going Christians are more likely to support the use of torture than other segments of the population. The Pew Research Center poll found: "White evangelical Protestants were the religious group most likely to say torture is often or sometimes justified – more than six in 10 supported it. People unaffiliated with any religious organization were least likely to back it. Only four in 10 of them did."

Yup. Christians go big for torture and for shoving their delusional religion down people’s throats. And the military is right in the middle of both efforts. (The Lion recalls the scandal at the United States Air Force Academy, which was, and likely still is, officially bent on turning out killers for Christ.)

Most Christians should never be allowed near guns or politics, just as anyone living and practicing delusional thinking should not be allowed near guns or politics.

For those who cleverly point out that President Obama is a Christian and snicker at The Lion’s comment, The Lion would point out that thus far Obama has pretty much kept his religion out of policy decisions, as opposed to that Christian hero, George W. Bush, who stuck his psychotic god into everything and pretty much screwed up everything he touched – the economy, the nation’s security, Iraq, the military, Afghanistan and so on. It is also worth noting that the Republicans seem to consider themselves the Party of God, and have succeeded only in making themselves look like fools and idiots while they destroy themselves politically.

  1. Correct. And it makes girl du jour very happy to see them stepping on their own dicks.

  2. Are you sure they have dicks? I thought they’d had penectomies awhile back. The Dems, for what it’s worth, appear to have been castrated. Their dicks are intact but they’re shooting blanks.

  3. This has been building for a while.
    Indoctrination is so wrong-headed that troops are taught their own officers are Islamic sympathizers. They Gave Us a Republic had a piece on this bluntly calling them Crusaders ( which means they are going to be no hell relating to the locals ), Attackerman at Firedoglake just put out an article on reorganization of command straucture…and all the while everyone discusses the propaganda model of what is going on as if it has some basis in reality.
    Do you follow Ten Percent ? Rick B seems to have his head on straight….in contrast to many. Mind Control just keeps screwing down tighter and tighter : so much that online sites are nuts and fake, not just comment threads.
    I could give you a pointe4r or two on how to access my Link search if you were interested. These days I am becoming somewhat distracted by all the material coming out of Care 2 and Current : some many leads, so little time.
