My Newswithviews Column, Oct. 21 (‘Our Military Goes Downright Silly’)

I don’t like the thought of facing an uncertain future with a silly military; but that’s what we have now, and God help us if we have to fight a war.

Our Military Goes Downright Silly

President Trump never got around to firing the addled wokies plugged into the Pentagon by Obama, and now we’re going to pay for it. We actually have generals and admirals who are gung-ho to fight “climate change” and “white supremacy”–I mean, really, it’s always so much safer to tackle imaginary enemies that can’t shoot back! Run into some real ones, though, and we’re in trouble.

In case you don’t remember ROTC cadets being made to march around in high-heeled pink shoes–a clear indication of where we were going!–here it is again:

A Military Disgrace Without a Battle

  1. “ We are in a very hazardous period in our country’s history …” This says it all. A few days ago, a friend and I were discussing historic events which may have been God’s judgment at work. In specific, he brought up Pompei, which he stated was a center of vice in ancient times. (I don’t know if this is accurate or not, but it was at the very least an entertainment center.) The friend wondered aloud if perhaps God had brought destruction upon this place. Of course, without a scriptural reference making that claim, there is no way to know, but hey, it wouldn’t surprise me a bit.

    Even without direct action from God, degradation brings its own judgment, as a natural consequence. For example, pedophilia harms children, but it has a long-term effect because these harmed children can carry deep emotional scars throughout life. An act of pedophilia can harm its victims and the family and associates of these victims for decades to come. So it becomes a societal burden. Much more is at stake here than meets the eye.

    But it’s the same with all sorts of negative activities and now, institutions have gone from tolerance to promotion, such as the ROTC incident you mention. It brings to mind Isaiah and saying what is good is bad and what is bad is good.

    1. The destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD appalled even the Romans, who were its immediate agents. But the historian Josephus says that Titus, commanding the Roman army, never meant for things to go quite so far.

      Shortly afterward, Pompeii and Herculaneum were totally wiped out by an event which a modern insurance company would call an act of God.

    2. Throughout history, some civilizations have just disappeared. There’s no record, but I can’t help but wonder if God pulled the plug on some of these civilizations. Central and South America were at one time highly populated, but there is reason to believe that these civilizations practiced the abomination of human sacrifice. The Hittites of Canaan were “vomited from the land” due to similar practices. Perhaps all of this will be revealed in God’s due time.

  2. As a former Air Force officer and Vietnam veteran, I’m sickened at what’s been done to our armed forces.

    I still have my old SAC patch. We had the bombers and the missiles, the major deterrence force. Curtis LeMay must be spinning in his grave.

  3. I’m sure there are many former military people are spinning in their graves They could never have imagined such things as we are seeing now. That includes my dad and his brothers, too.
