(via The Jawa Report
) warns that a new military manual is in the works, demonstrating just how low the Obama adminstration will go in appeasement to Islam:
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.
[...] 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.”
The part about women's rights becoming taboo is particularly disturbing, and goes way against everything a democratic country stands for. There is fortunately some objections being raised to this outrageous Orwellian manual in the military. I know that if I were in the army, I'd sooner resign than sacrifice my beliefs and morale for this kind of atrocious cowardice. I hope Congress is going to comment on this, which would give them something to make a credible argument from.
