The Dept. of Defense was nowhere to be found on 911. We haven’t won a war since.

It feels like the people who run the Pentagon specialize in undeclared/unwon wars.

Any college or pro football coach would have been fired a dozen times over for what DOD has done with the US Armed Forces during the fake GWOT era.


The Dept. of Defense is the very best at militarized pageantry for pro sports events.

They are able to get some members of the press to play the role of federal public affairs staff as authorities prepare for the Super Bowl.

TV newspeople perform like paid actors reading a script.

Sorry, no time for newspeople to ask:

Did the advantage of US air power allow the undeclared wars in Iraq or Afghanistan to be prevented, won or shut down?

Away from the giant flag rituals at sports events

A Dept. of Defense that struggles with recruiting.

After the lessons of Vietnam, decades of undeclared/unwon wars and people losing interest in showing up:

Brawls, Disorder Mar National Guard Boot Camp for Teens

“A massive brawl broke out on a parade ground at Fort Gordon in Augusta one afternoon last fall, when about 70 teenage recruits of the Georgia National Guard’s Youth Challenge Academy slugged it out. Some used homemade weapons, including metal shanks, crudely sharpened toothbrushes and tube socks filled with metal padlocks.”

When the press shows up to ask questions instead of play along with a press release handed down by authorities.

East Palestine police defend arrest of NewsNation correspondent covering Ohio train derailment presser

From comments:

Only one problem with this story…the videos and body cams don’t support the police’s account. He was not being loud and certainly not disorderly…he was just doing his job….these people especially Adjutant Major General Harris from the National Guard are an embarrassment.”


Someone admits to physically pushing the reporter, and the police try to “de-escalate” by forcing the reporter to leave??? Shouldn’t the person who admitted to laying hands on someone else been asked to leave?”

Bodycam Footage Appears to Show National Guard General Shoving Journalist During News Conference

“The Ohio National Guard currently has many of its troops deployed to the Middle East supporting operations in Iraq and Syria, its largest mobilization since its mission in Afghanistan in 2011 during which three of its soldiers were killed.”

If TV newspeople showed up to ask why the people of Ohio needed National Guard services in distant lands, absent any military emergency, national emergency, draft, or declaration of war, would they be asked to leave the news conference?

Supporting “Defend the Guard” Legislation in Maryland

“More than 600,000 Guard members have been deployed abroad since 2001 in undeclared wars or conflicts. Maryland Guard members fought in Fallujah and were sent to the notorious Abu Ghraib prison. This had nothing to do with defending the residents of Maryland against any threat for which the Guard was originally created. The risk that the U.S. government could become entangled in warfare in Ukraine is another urgent reason for safeguarding the Maryland Guard.”

A Military Draft?

Nov 19, 2019 Military Times

Rising costs, dwindling recruit numbers, increasing demands may bring back the military draft

Undeclared wars and a draft? Last time the two were mixed, it did not go well.

After the lessons of Vietnam, decades of undeclared/unwon wars. Has the DOD brand been damaged?

People are not interested in showing up.

A man on the moon in 1969 was a proud American moment.

Since that time, both major parties have taken turns in power and have squandered credibility that would help in the current situation.

We were told we needed to send troops to Vietnam.

Syria, Lebanon, Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc.

Some may have become skeptical along the way.

The military recruiting crisis was earned by the politicians, generals, and high ranking civilians who have been running the Pentagon over the past 30 years or so. The crisis is also upon us due to newspeople not asking questions going back to the time the Cold War ended.
