Handbook For Cultural Surrender

President Obama not only wants to gut the Defense budget, which will make it harder to win the war against Islamofascism, he also wants to gut America's moral example around the world. The Wall Street Journal broke a truly shocking story this week about the latest draft Army handbook on how our troops should conduct themselves in Afghanistan.

According to Obama's Army bureaucrats, the recent attacks by our Afghan "allies" against U.S.-led coalition troops, that have left 63 of our troops dead, are our fault! Consider this excerpt:

"Many of the confrontations occur because of [coalition] ignorance of, or lack of empathy for, Muslim and/or Afghan cultural norms, resulting in a violent reaction from the [Afghan security force] member."

The handbook goes on to advise our troops to avoid the following when speaking with Afghan security forces: "making derogatory comments about the Taliban," "advocating women's rights," "any criticism of pedophilia," "mentioning homosexuality and homosexual conduct" or "anything related to Islam."

In Afghan society, buggering little boys is widespread and women are treated like cattle. But, according to the Obama leftists running our government and military, the REAL problem is that U.S. soldiers, being good men and women, despise injustice and are inclined to be critical of such disgusting "traditions" like molesting little boys and treating women like slaves.

The commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, Marine Gen. John Allen, is refusing to endorse the handbook. I admire his courage, but he should be careful. In Obama's military, the general may find that his next assignment is in Benghazi.
