Shooting the Wounded 3

I used to think the primary obstacle to the victory of pan-secessionist/fourth generation forces in the U.S. would be America’s massive military-industrial complex. However, the more conversations I have with actual military personnel and the more I observe trends in the military, the less I am convinced of that. Prediction: At some point in the future, the U.S. armed forces will come to more closely resemble fire departments and EMT services, with the infantry more closely resembling the cops, and the special forces closely resembling SWAT teams. In other words, the U.S. armed forces will eventually come to resemble the EU military forces in that they will be largely worthless as actual fighting forces.

Meanwhile, the most important “national security” issue for North America during the post-United States era will be maintaining the ability to deter aggression by the BRIC axis.

The US military suffers from a self-inflicted wound, namely its outdated adherence to Second Generation war. The Obama administration, instead of healing it through military reform, has chosen to put a bullet in its head. How? By admitting women to the combat arms.

No single action could be more destructive of combat effectiveness. Any presence of women in a military is harmful. Putting them into the combat arms undermines unit cohesion, the basis of combat effectiveness, in the few units we have that actually fight. Instead of bonding, the men will fight over the women.

A few years ago, I was visiting a Navy ship whose captain I knew. His crew included women officers. I asked him what the fraternization rate was. After making sure no one could overhear his answer, he replied, “100%, of course. I have male sailors engaging in knife fights over the women officers.”

  1. I think this article is mostly a load of crap. However there is one thing I agree with. The military will begin to more closely resemble police. That is because as the empire collapses it resort to using the tactics that it uses against the external proletariat against the internal proletariat.

    Yes, as international warfare becomes more cost prohibitive, and as domestic unrest rises, the forces of the military-industrial complex will be turned inward as a domestic occupation force. We see glimpses of that in Ferguson.
