New JCS Chairman: Females are Now Fighting America’s Wars

That’s news to me!

Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, who is currently executing the job of destroying the American military’s ability to victoriously prosecute wars, at the same time that the John Doe calling himself “Barack Obama” has it entangled in more simultaneous wars than any previous commander-in-chief

“Our people -- America’s sons and daughters -- are our decisive edge.”
U.S. Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff, September 30.

It’s also news to the Pentagon, which forbids women from serving in the combat arms, and finally, news to nature, due to which women are physically unfit for combat.

Of late, I have also heard historical references to “men and women” who have died serving their country in war. How long will it be before Hollywood produces propaganda movies depicting women fighting gallantly in the combat arms in America’s wars?

See my report, “Claire, the Lean, Mean, Killing Machine: This Woman’s Army.”

Dempsey Vows to Maintain, Strengthen U.S. Military

WASHINGTON September 30, 2011 - Navy Adm. Mike Mullen transferred responsibility as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey during ceremonies here today.

Dempsey vowed to maintain and strengthen the military during his term.

Dempsey is the 18th chairman, and he thanked his predecessor and his wife, Deborah, for their patriotism and friendship.

“Although you’re a sailor and I’m a soldier, in the tradition of the horse cavalry, I want you to know that I will be proud to tell people that I rode with Mike Mullen during some of the most challenging times in our nation’s history,” Dempsey said.

The oath of office Dempsey swore as he became the new chairman is the same all commissioned officers take upon getting promoted or assuming a new position. He spoke of that oath in his remarks.

“You’ve all heard me … swear an oath to our nation and to the ideals that define it as those ideals are embodied in our Constitution,” the general said. “The oath reflects the sacred trust that exists between the military forces of the United States and the people of the United States. I will live up to that oath and I will maintain that trust.”

Today, Dempsey said, the U.S. armed forces “are powerful, responsive, resilient, versatile and admired.”

Those soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen provide leaders with a wide range of options to counter threats and crises. “And when sent to do the nation's bidding, we are an unambiguous signal of our nation’s resolve,” the new chairman said.

“Our people -- America’s sons and daughters -- are our decisive edge,” the general continued. “We’ll change and we’ll be challenged, but when I complete my tenure as the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, I intend to be able to say exactly the same thing: We will be the joint force the nation needs us to be, so help me, God.”
