US troops protest new hairstyle rules

107
According to the RIA News"March 31 was promulgated a new position of the command of the American army, which forbade soldiers to wear Afro-pigtails, dreadlocks and other national hairstyles. In addition, tattoos on the arms, neck and face were banned.


According to many soldiers, after the introduction of new rules, they no longer feel part of the US Army. Critics say that the introduction of new rules will contribute to reducing the number of armed forces.

A petition to lift the ban appeared on the White House website, which was signed by more than 17 thousands of people. Among the protesters were many soldiers who served in Afghanistan and Iraq. “In a combat situation, it’s not as important as your hair looks or if there are tattoos on your hands, much more important things are at stake,” said military expert Lauren Thompson of Lexington University.

It is worth noting that a considerable number of dark-skinned female servicemen turned out to be among the disgruntled. According to them, the army command does not see the difference between curly and straight hair, taking the hairstyles, which white women can wear without difficulty, as the standard.

“Our hair is curly by nature, nothing can be done about it. How can we change ourselves? ”, One of the disgruntled was indignant. She also noted that for the authorities only straight hair is neat, but in the field conditions of service means for straightening hair is very difficult to get.

According to Lt. Col. Elaine Conway, a spokeswoman for the US Army, African-American women should be involved in developing standards for hairstyles for military personnel.

    Here is an idiotic army. Everything is easier here. Clamped the hair with your fingers, if a little hair is visible from under the finger it means it's time to get a haircut.

          And I'm against it. It is not so harsh with the "military". And still it is necessary to oblige to go to one toilet, Swedish families and shows should be replaced with gay parades.

      Such rules exist in all armies that have passed the "crucible", for lice and dysentery are the soldier's enemies along with bullets and shrapnel, and the abundance of tattoos is a hint of a sloping roof.

            This allows you to check the technique and doctrines, adjust the training. Our big war ended 70 years ago. We do not have operational experience with aviation, Afghanistan is also specific. In addition, combat control aviation groups under combined arms armies were disbanded. Everything will have to start from scratch.

            Tell me, how does an adversary become knowingly weak? When you are the strongest and most prepared. War and the interests of the country are not a game of fair fight.

        So you, too, can lay out an inflatable pool on the upper deck of the US aircraft carrier and sit and sunbathe in the sun loungers around it. Act as a contractor in the marine special forces of the GRU General Staff of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, get ready as you should, and when you need to capture any U.S. aircraft carrier alive (choose which one you like) and please lay out the inflatable pool on the upper deck of the U.S. aircraft carrier and sit and sunbathe in the sun loungers around it.
        That's just such an army as in the US is unlikely to be able to defend their homeland. To such servicemen their asses, as they like to say, are more valuable than anything .....

          This is a direct deception. Immediately after the capture, the commanders will demand that they return to the BDK in the cubicles.

    “In a combat situation, it’s not so important how your hair looks or whether there are tattoos on your hands, much more important things are at stake,” said military expert Lauren Thompson from University of Lexington.

    It is worth noting that a considerable number of dark-skinned female servicemen turned out to be among the disgruntled. According to them, the army command does not see the difference between curly and straight hair, taking the hairstyles, which white women can wear without difficulty, as the standard.

    “In a combat situation, it’s not so important how your hair looks or whether there are tattoos on your hands, much more important things are at stake.” In a combat situation, the orientation of the fighter also does not matter. smile I believe that a man should look like a man, without braids, rings, tattoos. Although I don’t care about the Americans, they are cattle and let them live like animals. If only ours did not set a similar example.

      This is the difference between a normal country and a country of fools. In a normal country, subordinates to the fool chief will indicate that he, including petitions. What gives a chance to a fool grow wiser. Well, or, the fool will have to resign in disgrace. In the country of fools, any stupid order will be unquestioningly executed, which sooner or later will lead to a military (economic) disaster.

    But what about the fact that a short hairstyle in the army is not a matter of fashion, or dishonesty, that it is, first of all, a question of sanitation in combat conditions. Vsham oooochen lives well just in such dreadlocks and pigtails, especially in the field. And if you can comb normal, unstyled hair with a comb (which, by the way, is one of the preventive measures), then how do you comb the braids?

    "Dreadlocks, or dreadlocks - one of the types of African hairstyles. Dreadlocks have a long history, rooted in the past of the African continent. Once or twice a week smear dreadlocks with wax, honey or protein, weave them at the roots. "As you can see, there are many problems for the soldiers, there is no time to fight, and you will have to carry wax, honey and eggs with you. And the American soldier is already loaded like a camel. This is firstly. Secondly, Obama has nothing does not curl either on the head or in the head.
