ISLAMIC RADICALISM EXCUSED; POLITICALLY-CORRECT RULES OF ENGAGEMENT CAUSE INCREASED U.S. CASUALTIES

(Jan. 30, 2015) — “Roving Reporter here, giving you a ‘hands-on’ approach to the definition of ‘workplace violence’ at Camp X-Ray here in this godforsaken place that’s known as Afghanistan. With me is the Camp Commander in Charge, commonly called ‘C-Cubed.’
“C3 , why do you call your camp ‘X-Ray?’”
“First of all, on behalf of the men and women at our camp here, I wish to welcome you to Afghanistan. We all follow the political blogs from the States that aren’t afraid of printing the truth and, I must say, we find your interviews truthful and entertaining.
“As far as the name of this camp, the X-ray means that we can see them just as well as they can see us. It’s a play on words, but it’s not funny in the least. They’re trying to maim and kill us and we’re trying to stay alive. We used to have fun chasing them down, but that’s when we had air support. Can’t have that now because some idiots in Washington think that air support isn’t ‘surgical’ enough. Can you believe that?”
“Actually, I can. There have been a number of editorials written about the one-sided Rules of Engagement that you have to abide by, so our readers are quite familiar with the military just being clay pigeons for target practice here in Afghanistan.”
“Well, thank you, and I really mean that. Being here is no joke. These Afghan Muslims will never, but never, subscribe to anything that reeks of the Great Satan; count on it.”
“Forgive me for saying so, but you seem a little outspoken. Are you on some kind of short list for retirement or something? What gives?”
“I’ll tell you what gives: I’m so glad you asked. You want the truth, I believe, so you’re going to get it. And I’ve no doubt this’ll be bleeped or redacted so I’ll just say it right out, and I’m not alone in saying this, mind you. All the other commanders in all the other ‘Camp X-Rays’ feel the same way.
“We’re getting the short end of the stick here in this hellhole. Why, even before we set foot in Afghanistan, the terrorist training camps were moved to the boondocks in the States by the Department of Homeland Security. And since the Taliban isn’t a terrorist group nowadays, thanks to the White House, any of us who gets shot or blown up, well, it’s just ‘workplace violence,’ right?
“Look, we get it. Heck, we live it. We have Muslims in our outfit, but we’ve disarmed them. We made them all in charge of the mess decks and latrines.”
“But aren’t ‘mess decks’ on ships? Don’t you guys have ‘chow halls?’”
“Look, I’m not a C3 for nothing. We pretend that the chow hall is on a ship and this dirt and sand is the ocean and if they leave the mess decks they’ll drown, or at least that’s what we tell them. Keeps them in one place where we can watch them. Why, do you know that we have about as much manpower guarding our perimeter as we do on our very own Muslims?
“No, I’ll protect my troops from enemies both inside and outside the fence. No Ft. Hood (‘workplace violence’) incident for me. Why, any time you have Muslims you’re going to have cowardly acts. Remember Kuwait? I do, and so does everyone else. That base Commander at Ft. Hood dropped the ball, is what happened. Won’t happen here, not on my watch.”
“Okay, who’s to blame for it, I mean the Muslims in our military?”
“Well, that’s a good question but, you know, there’s no way around it: it all ends with the Joint Chiefs of Staff. They’re the ones who are responsible for keeping our country safe, along with all the agencies that are supposed to monitor who comes into our country; I mean, all those agencies which aren’t doing their job deporting the illegal immigrants and Muslims. Don’t get me started. Want some lunch? My treat.”
“Well, I don’t know about that.”
“Look, the mess deck Muslims, all they do is stand around, three guards per Muslim. They’re roped-off at one end so they don’t have access to any possible weapons: you know, knives and forks. We’ve two, so we have six watchers. Don’t worry, we’ve got your back.”
“It’s a deal. Well, that’s it from Camp X-Ray, somewhere in the mountains of Afghanistan. This is Roving Reporter saying ‘Thanks for watching.’ Goodnight.”
