Keep Political Correctness Off The Battlefield. Free the L10!
"There's something wrong in this country." In the words of Colonel Allen West, soldiers have been imprisoned for violations of poorly defined orders that are the result of court decisions driven by the likes of the ACLU, forcing political correctness onto the battlefield. It's a pathetic waste of human capital that those who choose to defend American values be shackled by leaders unwilling to defend their men. Those who join a volunteer army deserve to be protected from academic discussions made in a court removed from the fluid challenges faced by troops. In a complex and multifaceted society such as ours, responsible leaders buffer their people from the expectations of the inexperienced. Colonel Allen West gave a speech to a number of parents, friends and supporters of those held in Leavenworth Prison.
