“A Rainbow of Rage”

From Resign by Kurt Schlichter

You know what the Sergeant Major of the Army tweeted today, just before about a dozen of our troops were blown apart in exactly the way anyone not rocking in his chair, gulping mush, and staring at his stories on the tee-vee saw coming?

This gooey pablum would be funny if a dozen families weren’t getting a knock on the door tonight. But they are, and this frivolous idiocy is not funny. You need to resign too, Sergeant Major. Just go away.

Maybe General Milley did get something right. A soldier of recognized bravery earlier in his career, and (according to one soldier who served under him) a good battalion commander as a light colonel, he has demonstrated the Peter Principle in spades. He is the worst Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in history, a disaster in every way, but he has accomplished one thing besides adding to America’s “L” column. He has united the country. Remember his ridiculous screed about “white rage?” Well, today – because of his failure – he has managed to unite Americans of all colors and shades in their rage at a failed military establishment whose lack of seriousness and gross incompetence has not only humiliated our country but gotten our troops killed. He has created a rainbow of rage.

    Casey will know why I say this: I’m sickened by the fact that my dad’s old division, the “All American” 82nd Airborne, is part of this goat rodeo in Kabul. As far as I know, the paratroopers are still there along with the Marines. I’m just glad that my dad isn’t alive to see this disgrace.

      PA Cat, my compliments on your father’s service. Guess what? My father’s 10th Mountain is also there on the perimeter. It pains me to watch this fiasco. I was thinking today that if another bomb vest bomber appears, in the press of a crowd, you know what the soldier’s immediate action is, right?

      Contrast this with the mouthy female SSGT who wants to shoot citizens during an Insurrection Act event. It was unthinkable if Trump called for the IA, but some percentage of woke soldiers want the mutha enacted. First, they pass muster as Biden and Austin’s coxuckers, and then they begin to smell blood.

      It’s a large divide, in the military, between those on the very pointy edge of the spear, and mouthy libs in uniform. They will be outed…a barracks party sounds like a great way to celebrate the woken of the Biden military.

      Meanwhile, a literal playing out of the movie Uncommon valor is taking place in Kabul. I consider this a turning point.

        Casey, was your dad with the 10th Mountain during the Italian campaign in 1944-45? That division saw some really tough fighting in the northern Apennines– the Germans didn’t give up easily. I certainly do thank your dad for his service.

        • Casey Klahn August 27, 2021, 10:36 PM

          Yes, he did fight in Italy with the 10th. Not the easiest combat. Yes, the Germans were tenacious. Thank you.

    I wish you were right. There’s still 70 million or so real Biden voters. And McDonalds is still open.

      “There’s still 70 million or so real Biden voters.”
      You don’t know that.
      Don’t spread rumors.

    • Kevin in PA August 27, 2021, 12:43 PM

      70 million voted for Biden?!
      Hahaha hahaha haahahaaaa!
      Coming up for air…
      You are a fucking imbecile.

    Something is rotten in the District of Columbia.

    Let me rephrase that; there is not anything that is not rotten and there is not anything that does not stink to high heaven in the District of Columbia today!

    • Kevin in PA August 27, 2021, 12:45 PM

      It’s called the District of Criminals for a reason.
      And you are correct. The entire hellhole stinks.

    The Sargent Major of the Army has been kissing his bosses asses for so long that he says that kind of thing and means it. I was in the Navy and I knew some Senior and Master CPOs would would kill and eat their children for more rank or an additional $15 a month in base pay. So, what’s the next available rank for this SMA buttwipe? Most service men are so well trained today that the services could get rid of the top 3 or 4 enlisted billets in each service and do just about as well as they are now. 20 years and a rank of E7 or E8, whichever comes first, should be the end of the line and immediate separation for all rates in the various branches.

    Does anyone remember this headline “Trump Administration Announces Plans To Move Hundreds Of Federal Jobs Out Of D.C.”.

  • Arty August 27, 2021, 8:33 PM

    Just looking at that dog faced phoney soldier makes me wretch. Nobody in this administration has a sense of honor. I wouldn’t send my son off to fight for any of them.

    And now we have this:

    Please, please don’t try to tell me that this is a separate and unrelated incident. My thought is that this is the Kennedy clan trying to get back in the drug trade–now that our men will be out of harms way and the routes are open to the highest bidders.

    • ghostsniper August 28, 2021, 7:44 AM

      I saw that. Inneresting take.

    How does one throw a barracks party for a general? A barracks party is a long-standing army tradition..oh, wait. They showed one in the USMC movie Full Metal Jacket. The whole platoon pins the one guy down whose fully holding you back from success. It isn’t a matter of pride; it’s a matter of eating the suck for weeks on end because Gomer won’t pull his head out of his ass long enough to execute the column right march that every other swinging dick has figured out how to do.

    Kurt says, in his article linked here, that even a butter bar lieutenant can see this op is fukt up. WW II American generals were uniformly bad at planning. They had a new revolution in military affairs to deal with, and on the largest possible scale, and at the fastest mechanized pace ever experienced. Some generals stood out as great planners – Patton was one of them. Patton, who had raging ADD, was yet a genius at planning.

    All this to say, that American military flag rank officers now are superior planners. They plan the living shit out of everything, in triplicate, and stick it in a file. Evacuate Kabul? Got the plan right here. It is obvious that Biden, Inc., has withheld all of the key ingredients to make it go well. Biden could, and does, fuk up a wet dream.

    Which leads me to this. He will blame the flag ranks. Why in Holy Hell do they not resign in protest at this goat rope? Is this the extent of their hubris, that they must keep their precious jobs in the face of certain recrimination by POTUS? They are blinded by hubris. DC is insane.

      Onboard subs, we referred to it as a blanket party. I only knew of one blanket party on the boat I served on. A E3 was caught stealing, and the COB (Chief of the Boat), somewhat covertly, recommended it. The parties who had been stolen from took the hint. The E3 ended up with a broken wrist, which the corpsman set, and next port of call, he was gone. Busted to E1 and fined at Captain’s Mast, too.

    Whatever you’re doing Kevin it isn’t working.

    When our already very successful, youngest child told his grandmother that he had decided to enlist in the Army two years ago, her instinctive and prescient words, delivered without hesitation, were, “Better pray Trump wins re-election.” He’s now a Special Forces Combat Medic… As a new military parent, I want Biden’s head on a plate served to ISIS-K for third breakfast…
