US generals have forgotten the word "honor" (fbii.org USA)

The weak moral character of the US military is known on all continents. They drink, steal, rob, kill, rape, both at home and at foreign bases. However, the generals are no better. In the US Army today, the old wisdom of the people found confirmation: the fish rots from the head.


On Friday, October 11, General Michael Carey, commander of the US nuclear forces, was dismissed. Despite the rather vague wording (“due to the loss of leadership confidence”), the immediate future of the three-star general is quite obvious - a criminal investigation has already been launched against him.

Meanwhile, the official biography of the gray-haired commander states that he went through two campaigns in the Persian Gulf and received 13 orders and medals. Under his command around 10 served thousands of troops in three combat squadrons. The Pentagon keeps the details of the dismissal secret, but the media is confident that alcohol is the culprit and that, in essence, the nuclear missile potential of the US Air Force was, until recently, in the hands of an alcoholic. It brings chill ...

It is symptomatic that Carey’s dismissal took place when two weeks had passed since another “looking” at the American nuclear umbrella was removed from office - Deputy Admiral Tim Gardin, Deputy Head of Strategic Command of the US Armed Forces. Military sources told reporters that this removal is connected with the admiral's addiction to gambling. Moreover, Tim Gardin didn’t just play, he was caught ... in a cheat. Recall, the strategic command and headquarters in Omaha (Nebraska) is responsible for the American "nuclear triad" - ground-based ballistic missiles, submarine missiles and air force nuclear weapons.

It is worth noting that the last year - from autumn to autumn - as if passed under the sign of revelations of drunkenness and sexual adventures of a number of senior officials of the Pentagon and the CIA.

For example, in June, Major General Michael Harrison, the US commander in Japan, was removed. He covered rapists, obstructed the investigation, forged reports. It is interesting that Harrison is an experienced military man. For over thirty years, he held various command positions in the US Army. Including, headed the 10-th Mountain Division and the security command in Afghanistan.

In May, Brigadier General Brian Roberts, one of the commanders of the Fort Jackson military base in South Carolina, was at the center of the scandal. He was suspended from service due to allegations of misconduct, including "adultery and physical altercation." According to USA Today, 36 annually pass thousands of recruits through the Fort Jackson training camp, two thirds of whom are women. Thus, under the boring definition of "physical quarrel" hides the bitter truth - adultery was associated with sexual violence. Roberts broke his beloved lip, because of what she later needed medical care. Note that the general commanded the base a little over a year. Prior to that, he was engaged in preparing soldiers for shipment to Iraq, and also led the unit engaged in the livelihood of the inhabitants of New Orleans, after Hurricane Katrina. Total Roberts served in the army 29 years old, married, has three children.

In April, Major General of the African Command of the US Armed Forces (“Afrikom”) Ralph Baker also lost his post for unworthy military behavior. He lost the trust of his boss due to "drunkenness and licentiousness, including harassment and promiscuous sex." Baker was dismissed as a result of an internal audit, which was initiated after an employee of the US Department of Defense in Djibouti wrote a statement to him.

Finally, in November 2012, due to sexual promiscuity, CIA Director David Petraeus lost his post. Before joining reconnaissance, this four-star general commanded the American forces in Afghanistan, and earlier headed the Central Command of the US Armed Forces and the military grouping in Iraq. It is curious that two months after this resignation, the slightly veiled image of Petraeus fell on the cover of a book telling about general drunkenness among the American generals.

Earlier in 2012, another brigadier general, Roger Duff, pleaded guilty to charges of inappropriate conduct for an officer, carrying undeserved awards and false statements in his official biography. He was sentenced to two months of imprisonment and dismissal from the army. At the same time, on seven counts of inappropriate behavior, accusation of adultery and the provision of false information, Army Major General David Hale pleaded guilty. He was fined ten thousand dollars and thrown out.

Finally, the investigation into the case of the next army brigadier general, Jeffrey Sinclair, who until the middle of last year held the post of deputy commander for the rear of the 82 airborne division, is currently ongoing. He is charged under eight criminal articles, including violent sodomy, indecent behavior, death threats, the spread of pornography, alcohol abuse in a combat situation, adultery, against several women who served under his authority in Iraq and Afghanistan. The trial dragged on because the accused did not plead guilty. The final court hearing is scheduled for January 2014, and if Sinclair’s fault is proven, he faces life imprisonment.

It should be noted that all the listed war criminals are those who, in a wide public debate, are respectfully called brave servants. Such a “general's bone”, heroes of the past hot spots - an example for boys and the “brain of the army”, they would have to become the “calling card” of the Pentagon. From the pages of the newspaper, they look at us in all their grand grandeur. But behind this masquerade lies another face - the face of robbers and rapists. Perhaps, the typical American general of the beginning of the XXI century remains forever in the soul corporal, who has simply been promoted many times in the rank ...

      They are at least kicked out of the army with shame, does anyone remember which general we have been kicked out with shame recently?

        All of the above, to be honest, makes you think.
        And no one thought that a sweeping operation was being carried out and the generals were being removed,
        not corresponding to any other requirements.
        Much has already been said that the United States is preparing for war on its territory.
        and with your people.
        So maybe they just clean people who don’t send soldiers against
        citizens of their country?
        I do not pretend that this is the ultimate truth, but such
        option should be considered.

          As one of the versions - maybe it should be. But I think that is unlikely.
          This article is about honor. And their "exploits" are listed: rape, sodomy, sexual debauchery, drunkenness with gambling addiction on the verge of fraud. Any military general with even an ounce of dignity would never agree with such shameful accusations if he did nothing of the sort. Service inconsistency, "collapse" of the unit, loss of combat readiness, etc. wherever it goes, to dismiss the unwanted ... And here, for evidence, you do not need a bunch of, for example, unclean or rusty weapons or there, flat tires from armored personnel carriers, lack of ammunition, but, pardon the frankness, a woman's "hole" worn out by the general "end" and her face with hand-applied "decorations", confirmed by all sorts of examinations.
          So, I think, there is hardly smoke without fire ... No.

            As it were, yes, but it’s also not worth neglecting the idea that for us all of the arguments you have presented are shameful. But they have a different mentality and it is likely that they do not think so.
            Yes, and you can always step on the eggs in such a way that you admit that you don’t even dream of delirious drunkenness. And the more disgraceful the dismissal, the less trust then will be to the words of the dismissed.
            Something like this.

          It seems to me that those who were tidied up, they could very well send their subordinates to shoot at anyone and crash through the American city with anything vigorous bomb.
          It’s not for the sake of external use that they clean up their ranks demonstratively.

      US generals forget the word honor
      - Let's start with the fact that apparently they don't know the meaning of this word at all. "Worthy" continuers of the cause of the generals of the Wehrmacht, all sorts of bloody dictatorial regimes, Israel.

    What "honor" is there ... They are brainwashed beasts, both generals and soldiers! As I saw they interviewed one in Iraq, and so, he believed with all his heart that he was saving America, that the Iraqis were villains and threatened the safety of his family and friends! Then I wondered if this monkey could find Iraq on the map ... laughing

    Being a womanizer and a drunkard is not the biggest crime. Among the military of any army in the world this is a common occurrence. In the Soviet and Russian army, too (he saw himself, because a career officer). Honor is lost by those who steal. Among the above bad guys for some reason there are no thieves. Our generals in this matter were noted much more often ..

    A disgrace. Although maybe we Russians are too limited in understanding democracy? Probably democracy is freedom, and above all from moral principles.
    He was dismissed from the position of another “looking after” the American nuclear umbrella - Deputy Head of the Strategic Command of the US Armed Forces, Vice Admiral Tim Gardina. Military sources told reporters that this removal is connected with the admiral's addiction to gambling. Moreover, Tim Gardina did not just play, he was convicted ... of cheating.

    Ehh, missed the moment, it was necessary to send our Hakobyan. Here I present a picture - the Russian Katals won the nuclear suitcase from the states. laughing

    in the morning I was watching the news and came across the speech of Barack Obama ... again the words of the nation's exclusiveness, the foundation of the entire world economy ... here it is American permissiveness. first there were actions against Iraqis, Afghans. now they have already started to spoil everything. of course, all this is good , even if "democracy" decays further, it is time for other countries to look at the "miracle country" from the other side.

    As Vysotsky said in the role of Zheglov, "The level of crime in a country is determined not by the presence of criminals, but by the ability of the authorities to fight them." Maybe not literally, but somehow so.
    Yes, by the way, in the article they forgot to mention the Supreme Commander-in-Chief who during the office hours directly in the office subordinates did a blow job. Under the US Constitution, the Commander-in-Chief is the President, and at that time Clinton held this position.

        I don’t know what and in what tone she told Bill privately, but in public she kept silent in a rag and sent all those who were interested first to the special prosecutor who investigated these facts, and then to Congress, which decided the question of impeachment. And then the topic somehow quickly resolved, losing the first lines of news to the upcoming elections.

    As my commander said, - General, this is not a military rank, General is happiness! That says it all. During a long military service, I saw everything, almost everything is written about in the article. Except for sodomy. I did not see such perversions. Here, American colleagues surpassed us. The army is the most uncontrolled organization (after special services). So that it all depends on the people.

Apparently this is only the tip of the "American iceberg" of the military elite. After that, is it worth it to be surprised at the "exemplary" behavior of ordinary servicemen and their attitude towards the inhabitants of the countries where they "serve." I involuntarily remembered Lieutenant Kelly who burned down the village of Songmi along with the residents (Vietnam). He was left with impunity to serve in the US Armed Forces and, already in the rank of colonel, he retired as an honorary retirement. At that time, the generals listed were just beginning to serve as still far from generals, i.e. they already had the same "teachers"

    These are undeniable and absolutely reliable facts.
    All the wars in which the Yankees participated were organized by them, like the attacks of bandits and robbers.

    They don’t have any patriotism, self-sacrifice, heroism, although the mass zombie of soldiers in USA is a constant occurrence, because even inveterate murderers have some rudiments of conscience and need to justify their crimes to their conscience.
    The most important thing for the Yankes in the war is to save his ass, and if you can, then he will also rape and rob someone.
    In case of failure, the Yankees throw everything - weapons, banners, allies, colleagues, wounded and flee overseas. For a soldier, this is a loss of honor, but for a thief, robber, killer and rapist, natural behavior.
    The Yankees are going to fight not to defend their country and not for ideals, but to rob a foreign country. What is the point to them to give their lives for someone’s self-interest?
