SecDef's Terrifying Training Priorities

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has ordered a review of all the administrative and training requirements that prevent trigger pullers and pilots alike from focusing on warfighting.

In the memo obtained by Military Times, Mattis on Friday directed the services, the National Guard Bureau and the combatant commanders to determine what changes are needed to give each branch increased flexibility to organize, train and equip more ready and lethal forces.

Notably, Mattis has ordered a review of the “requirements for mandatory force training that does not directly support core tasks” – the many hours soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines spend prior to deployment meeting the Pentagon-required tasks that sometimes have little to do with the role they will actually fulfill when deployed.

I know what this really means and... It. Is. Horrifying!!!

How? How can the valiant fighters of this Republic, be expected to achieve their peak of mental and physical war-fighting readiness without being lectured on the evils of White Privilege?

Worse yet, the non-stop rapes that will immediately occur once "consent training" is suspended!

And what will happen to the civilian trainers of these men? They have six figure government contracts (not joking there) to do this mission critical training. They have big mortgages now, how can they be expected to pay them. This can't be good for the economy.

Secretary Mattis... Mad Dog, you must reconsider.*

And then there is the mental exhaustion of having to have a plan to kill everyone I meet.

*Under no circumstances reconsider.
