New Army Manual Orders Soldiers Not To Criticize Taliban

Here is a strong indicator that the Obama Administration’s crusade to appease Islam has gone too far; a  new U.S. military handbook for troops deployed to the Middle East orders soldiers not to make derogatory comments about the Taliban or criticize pedophilia, among other outrageous things.

It gets better; the new manual, which is around 75 pages, suggests that Western ignorance of Afghan culture— not Taliban infiltration—is responsible for the increase in deadly attacks by Afghan soldiers against the coalition forces.

The soon-to-be-released Army handbook is still being drafted, but a mainstream newspaper got a sneak preview and published an article that should infuriate the American taxpayers funding the never-ending war on terror. The manual is being created because someone with authority bought the theory that cultural insensitivity is driving insider attacks on U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

More than three dozen insider attacks have killed 63 members of the U.S.-led coalition this year, according to the article, and some blame “American cultural ignorance.” The bottom line is that troops may experience social-cultural shock and/or discomfort when interacting with Afghan security forces, the new military handbook says. “Better situational awareness/understanding of Afghan culture will help better prepare [troops] to more effectively partner and to avoid cultural conflict that can lead toward green-on-blue violence.”

The draft leaked to the newspaper 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 towards Afghans,” “mentioning homosexuality and homosexual conduct” or “anything related to Islam.”

At least one high-ranking military official had the backbone to publicly criticize the new manual, albeit through a spokesperson. U.S. Marine General John Allen, the top commander in Afghanistan, doesn’t endorse it and rejected a proposed forward drafted by Army officials in his name. “He does not approve of its contents,” according to a military spokesman quoted in the story.

    Yeah, we’re insensitive to the Taliban’s need to re-establish a Seventh Century Islamic hell on Earth to serve as a base for deadly terrorist attacks in the future

    Let’s be fair now, the NAMBLA faction of the administration made them add the pedophilia piece.

    (I think His O’liness leads that faction)

    Bring our troops home. There is nothing we can do or say that will appease 7 century minds. You see it here in the states. They com over as refugees, then their bat shit crazy kicks in and we have another slaughter of innocent US citizens.

    Now you see the difference between Army and Marines. They know it would be a waste of time to give a Marine a book to read. They are better at verbal commands, remember what happened a couple of years ago when the Gunny said “Piss on them Ragheads!”

    @Buffalobob, I agree. Bring them all home. Don’t leave one American soul behind.

    If our military has become so corrupt with progs, might as well.

    The military is NOT an engine of social change. Its sole job is to kill people and break things. Barack Fucking Obama needs to get a clue.

    @Moe Tom, I groogled it, and I’m staggered at Sir Winston’s prescience.

    One of many insightful observations:
    “How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy.”

    The poor grunt that is being shot at has to be nice to them, but Obama sitting in his nice comfy office chair can drone stike them to death regardless of collateral damage, and this adminstration thinks that the Haji’s don’t like us because of what our brave soilders say. These bureaucrats are warped.

    Now that their words and mission are complete opposites, what are they doing there then?

    This makes the equation a balance of Zero.

    Just look at our military: Don’t ask don’t tell. Be nice to mussys. They are letting the administration and congress drain their budget. Idiotic rules of engagement. Women on submarines. Touchy feely seminars. The list goes on. I’d have to think twice about joining now.
