Welcome to the Vietnam Veterans Institute Website

"If we who served and those who were otherwise involved do not, through our words and deeds, challenge the revisionist history, a generation of young American fighting men will be forever denigrated and a vital chapter in our national history will be remembered erroneously."

Trivializing our Military- Denigrating ou ]

Trivializing our Military- Denigrating our Warriors

 

 

In a 2015 memo by the Secretary of the Army to worldwide Army Commands, the Secretary dictated that ‘Commanders and soldiers will balance lactation support and readiness.’

 

In response, COL (Ret) Fred Dibella, USMA Class of ’69 and former TAC of Company F2 at West Point wrote: 

 

“Ok, I’ve had all I can stomach. I’m done.

 

Scroll down and read this sh*t right now, if you think I’m kidding, then come back to my remarks, if you haven’t puked your guts out. (USMA ‘69 forum, feel free to permanently ban me from your rolls, but I’ve had enough.)

 

Obama and his lackeys have now systematically laid the groundwork to accomplish what no battlefield enemy has ever done; that is, to emasculate the United States Military. I honestly don’t know how he could have done it more effectively. He’s dangerously downsized the force; he’s rooted out warriors like Stan McChrystal and Carter Ham from the General and Flag Officer ranks and installed puppets like George Casey and Martin Dempsey; he not only obliterated ‘Don’t ask, Don’t tell’; he searched long and hard to find an openly gay (and utterly unqualified) man to be Sec Army; he opened not just combat arms to women, but the absolute tips of the spear in Infantry, Armor and Artillery, and the predictable result is directives like “balance lactation support and readiness?”

 

Seriously? SERIOUSLY? Balance lactation support and readiness?   

 

Sorry, I’m old school, but I THOUGHT READINESS WAS NEVER, EVER COMPROMISED… let alone for “lactation support”.

 

Have we gone completely mad?!? Do you think for a moment that the greatest fighting force the planet has ever known is immune to emasculation? That there’s nothing that Obama can do to significantly degrade its lethality?  That somehow we will magically prevail, despite all this sh*t?

 

Here’s the blunt truth, and if you think this flies in the face of political correctness and/or liberal theology… congratulations.

 

The most important reason the US Military has been so dominant, so lethal, and so unbeatable over that last 200 years is that we subscribe to a Warrior Ethos. We’re not quite Sparta, but we ain’t been far behind. That is, until now. Up to now, we have recognized the blatantly obvious: That battles and wars are won by Alpha Males. And why is that? Uh… because men and women may well be equal in the eyes of God, but they damned sure ain’t identical in the laws of physics and psychology. Men are, by and large, bigger, stronger, faster, more aggressive, more violent, more ferocious, more intense, more powerful, more brutal, more belligerent, more destructive, AND THEREFORE MORE LETHAL than women. 

 

You don’t buy that? Tell you what – pick 50 men at random from anywhere and 50 women. Put ‘em in a big ring and tell ‘em to fight to the death. Have a problem immediately predicting the outcome? If you do, I can’t help you.  You’re an idiot or a flaming liberal who believes that “Laura Croft, Tomb Raider” is real.  

 

Why do you think Martin Dempsey, Obama’s personal lackey in uniform, issued his famous proclamation? You know the one: “If women can’t pass the standards at Ranger school, SEAL school, and other similar training programs, then the standards will have to be justified to me”.   

 

God help me, but am I the only one who sees through that sh*t? I guess the Rangers at Point du Hoc weren’t good enough, huh Martin? Neither were the SEALS at Benghazi? I guess Delta’s incredible successes are not sufficient.   ‘We must reassess the standards’. Total crock of sh*t. Scrape away the BS, and here’s the residue: We’re gonna lower the bar ‘till the women can get over it, period. Think that’ll have any effect on lethality? BTW, how’d you like to be the Ranger School Commandant who goes to Massa Dempsey’s office to ‘splain why women aint’ makin’ it? Think he might avoid that by “adjusting” things a bit?

 

But it’s more than physicality. It’s about the laws of nature. That is, when young men and women are put together they respond to hormones rather than ‘good order and discipline’. 1976:  Women are introduced to West Point.   Regulations strictly prohibited fraternization among cadets. Hahahahahahaha. Written by some idiot, no doubt.  They were bangin’ each other like rabbits. Trust me, I had a ringside seat. But that wouldn’t happen in a Ranger squad, or a SEAL team, right? If you said, “Right”, then you’re an idiot. The squad/team leader is messin’ around with a female and there’s no degradation to good order and discipline, right? The previous “Brotherhood” that formerly bonded warriors together won’t be affected, right?

 

So we now have a female Commandant of Cadets at West Point. See how freaking enlightened we are? We can appoint females to the leadership roles at the nations’ premier School for Warriors. That is, the nations’ FORMER premier School for Warriors. West Point is now the tip of the Political Correctness spear. We have gay marriages at the cadet chapel, we have kindness and compassion seminars, we even have Sensitivity Officers, for crissake, on cadet staffs - right next to the Operations and Logistics Officers - to ensure that Alpha Males do not behave like Alpha Males. We dumb ‘em down now. We used to understand that good warriors were a little rough around the edges. We tolerated that, because we knew ‘em for what they were… Patton comes immediately to mind.   Instead, now we intentionally extract the fangs from the sheepdogs, just about the time when the wolves from Islam are stalking the flock… 

 

Obama gave us Obamacare, which is now sinking under its own sick formula Good thing, because the gutless Republicans couldn’t bring themselves to defund it. Obama has given us Sotomayor and Kagan, two flaming Liberals who will sit on that bench for a generation of Looney Tunes. Obama has demonstrated his racism, his socialism, his disdain for law enforcement and even his proclivity for Islam (the “peaceful” religion… what a laugh).   He’s been the single most divisive and destructive POTUS in my lifetime. America, thanks to him, is at war with itself. GOP vs ‘Crats, Blacks vs Whites, Haves vs Have-nots, Women vs Men, Armed vs Unarmed, you name the category… we have two sides at war with each other.

 

The debt is approaching $20 Trillion. That’s such a ridiculous number that even economists can’t fathom it. More than half of it generated on Obama’s personal watch. We have no national border. None Agents have been defanged, and the illegal aliens come across at will. The problems in Arizona and Texas are ignored by Obama.  Israel has gone from being our most trusted and respected ally in the Mideast to being openly discredited, condemned and insulted by him. The nuclear deal with Iran was and is a joke. Un-vetted Syrian male “refugees”… well hell, come to America! It’s all so transparent. You elect an utterly unqualified candidate with dangerous background affiliations in his past, and this is what you get: a self-inflicted wound.

 

But it all pales, in my humble world, to his destruction of the American Military. These are the guardians of our way of life. These are the warriors. These are the “rough MEN who allow us to sleep soundly, because they stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm”. But go ahead, America: let this ideologue continue the systematic defanging of our fighting force. Let him feminize it. Let him drag it into the political correctness cesspool. Let him continue the social engineering and tinkering. Keep putting high heel shoes on male cadets, so they can “empathize”. Forget all our hard-fought lessons at Khe Sanh, the Chosin Resevoir, Bastogne, Belleau Wood, Gettysburg, and Bunker Hill. Let the idiots tell you that war is “push button” now, so anyone can be a warrior.  

 

Go ahead…  

 

Historians won’t have a difficult time analyzing this disintegration. We were just too timid to put a stop to the madness… ”

 

Dibella

The Tuition  & Text Book Rip-off

by J. Eldon Yates

When I was 18 I could work my way through College. Youth today cannot.  And its largely because of the greed of the Institutions of higher learning.  And the tenured Professors who write the required Text Books for their courses, then charge outrageous prices.  Then revise a chapter or two every year rendering the text obsolete. Hence the used text cannot be resold at the College Book Store! 

Its the ultimate hypocrisy!  While those Academic propagandist push the agenda of the far left into naive students heads about income inequality and the evils of Wall Street they gouge the very Students they are trying to indoctrinate into a twisted concept of Social Justice.

Reprinted from THE NATIONAL REVIEW

by Victor Davis Hanson August 17, 2015 10:02 AM  Al Sharpton has promised to galvanize the black churches to support the Obamas administration Iran deal. He says the reason is because African Americans have suffered disproportionately in Americas past wars (e.g. We have a disproportionate interest, being that if there is a war, our community is always disproportionately part of the armed services, and that a lot of the debate is by people who will not have family members who will be at risk.) Set aside the fact that liberals are usually skeptical of religious non-profits engaging in blatant politicking, perhaps especially in the age of Lois Lerner. Set aside also the fact that President Obama does not have a good record of assuring Jews that he has not been singling them out for coded disparagement during his selling of the Iran deal, and that, given his past, Sharpton is the last person who might dispel that growing suspicion of administration anti-Semitism (e.g., white interloper/diamond merchants/If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house,). Sharpton, as usual, is not telling the whole truth here. There is no statistical evidence to suggest that blacks have suffered more military deaths during wartime on a percentage basis than have other groups including whites since the integration of the armed forces nearly 70 years ago. According to the Congressional Research Service, since 1948, there is little evidence to back up Al Sharptons stereotypes of inordinate African-American sacrifice (at least as defined as the ultimate sacrifice in war) compared to the African-American percentage of the general population. In the Korean War, 80 percent of military deaths were white; 8.4 percent were African-American. In Vietnam the military death ratio was 85.6 percent white to 12.4 percent black. In the first Gulf War it was 76.3 percent white compared to 17.2 percent black; in Afghanistan (Operation Enduring Freedom), 85 percent white compared to 8 percent black; and in Operation Iraqi Freedom through 2014, the military death ratio was 82 percent white to 10 percent black. In other words, in almost all cases, the white death ratio approximated or exceeded the percentages of whites in the general population. The black military death percentages were mostly similar, slightly falling below population percentages in Korea and Afghanistan, reflecting about the percentage of the general African-American population during Vietnam, slightly lower during Operation Iraqi Freedom, and slightly higher during the first Gulf War although the total deaths in that war (383) were a fraction of those lost in the other four wars referenced. There is no evidence to support the suggestion that Asians, Latinos, blacks, and Native Americans have died disproportionately in Americas wars since 1948, although during the Vietnam War era that was an article of faith of the anti-war Left. If Sharpton means simple membership within the Armed Services, then representation of blacks in all branches (16.2 percent) is not all that inordinate (less than average in the Marines and Coast Guard, more than average in the Army, Air Force, and Navy) and is not explained by white underrepresentation in the military (71.9 percent), but rather by apparent under-representation of other minority groups (e.g., Asians, Latinos, and those either of mixed race or who do not identify by race), although particular minority percentages of the general population are often disputed for a variety of reasons. Of course, it is hard to know whether Sharpton feels that overrepresentation or underrepresentation in the military, in terms of racial percentages, represents discrimination or putting an unwelcome burden disproportionately on African Americans.
