Kalvoks’ Daily Dombalan
American soldiers are so pathetic and poorly equipped that they must buy their own clothes and equipment, according to Christian Science Monitor article titled “U.S. Troops Buy Own Gear For Safety In Battle”:
“The Army is planning a $20 billion future
combat system, and they can’t provide boots that don’t wear out,” says
Roger Charles, editor of DefenseWatch, an investigative website that
advocates on behalf of frontline soldiers. “There’s no priority for
taking care of relatively mundane items where most people would think,
‘Gosh, that’s so simple. Why don’t they have the best boots, the best
uniforms, the best helmets, and the best flak jackets?’ ”
Poor bastards not only suffering from easily destroyed Humvees
because American has no money to pay for protective plates, but they
cannot even get decent boots! It reminds me of stories of Russian
soldiers in the 19th century.
It is so bad that American soldiers must rely on charity, like poor African babies, just to get proper helmets:
In some cases, charity groups have stepped in to
help. Operation Helmet, founded by Bob Meaders of Montgomery, Texas,
shipped special helmet liners to soldiers to replace what many soldiers
said were poorly designed helmet pads issued by the Army and the
Marines. Just as Operation Helmet thought its work was done late last
year, more requests came in from troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
is too corrupt and stupid to care about the soldiers it sends off to
wars which only serve to line the pockets of their oligarchs. No wonder
America is losing its wars. And no wonder they are suffering from so
much depression, as reported in Associated Press:
A report the Army released Thursday recommends
sending civilian psychiatrists to the warfront, supplementing members
of the uniformed mental health corps.
Surveying a force strained by its seventh year of
war, officials found that more than one in four soldiers on repeat
tours of duty screened positive for anxiety, depression and other
mental health problems. That was comparable to the previous year.
Poor American soldiers, I have to feel sorry for them. They
serve a corrupt and bloodthirsty regime in wars that they do not
understand and are treated like peasant recruits of two centuries ago.
No wonder America’s days as a “superpower” are numbered.
