Absolutely... here's the thing, he shouldn't even open his fricking mouth when it comes to politics. Lt. Col. Chunkbody doesn't agree with the administration's manner of dealing with Ukraine, he should just keep his trap shut and do his job. On top of that, this shitbird had the audacity to testify in front of Congress. He's lucky he's not sitting in Leavenworth.

Serious question for the Soldiers out there: if this turd never held command at company or battalion level, how the hell was he promoted, especially being selected for Colonel? This just Does not happen in the Marine Corps. I am not casting aversion on the Army, but how???

There is some crap being slung that is not substantiated. The guy is not a due course infantry officer. He was promoted to MAJ in 2008 and became a FAO the same year. But he was a platoon leader and would not have made MAJ without company command. He got a CIB from Iraq in 2004. Had to be in an infantry assignment to get it. Don’t have to like him (I don’t) but you also don’t have to make stuff up either.

TLDR - he does not make MAJ if he does not serve as a PL and CO CDR.

re: Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman says speaking out ended his 21-year military career
Vindman obviously was promoted because he was a dutiful errand boy for our nation’s wholly compromised intelligence community. His career finally culminated in his dirtying his hands in a very public manner. He no doubt will be handsomely rewarded with a job on some corporate board of a weapon contractor or perhaps as a national security analyst at some think-tank that serves as a mouthpiece for the CIA.

The only noteworthy thing about this story is that this Deep State toady has allowed his face and name to become the public face of this ongoing putsch against a duly elected President. Vindman otherwise is an ameba on a pimple on a boil on a dimple of an elephant’s ass. The elephant in the room here is our wholly corrupt national security apparatus.


That is the bigger story here. This traitorous puke is not some outlier and anomaly but the logical end result of the utter corruption that permeates the entire Pentagon.

What will it take for supporters of limited government realize that the entire U.S. military machine has been reduced to serving as the global enforcing arm of some of the vilest and most corrupt entities on earth? The biggest bait and switch in our nation’s history has been convincing decent and patriotic Americans that unquestioned loyalty to our nation’s corrupt national security apparatus is a prerequisite for being a “conservative.”



America’s Permanent-War Complex....

quote:

What President Dwight D. Eisenhower dubbed the “military-industrial complex” has been constantly evolving over the decades, adjusting to shifts in the economic and political system as well as international events. The result today is a “permanent-war complex,” which is now engaged in conflicts in at least eight countries across the globe, none of which are intended to be temporary.

This new complex has justified its enhanced power and control over the country’s resources primarily by citing threats to U.S. security posed by Islamic terrorists. But like the old military-industrial complex, it is really rooted in the evolving relationship between the national security institutions themselves and the private arms contractors allied with them.

The first phase of this transformation was a far-reaching privatization of U.S. military and intelligence institutions in the two decades after the Cold War, which hollowed out the military’s expertise and made it dependent on big contractors (think Halliburton, Booz Allen Hamilton, CACI). The second phase began with the global “war on terrorism,” which quickly turned into a permanent war, much of which revolves around the use of drone strikes.

The drone wars are uniquely a public-private military endeavor, in which major arms contractors are directly involved in the most strategic aspect of the war. And so the drone contractors—especially the dominant General Atomics—have both a powerful motive and the political power, exercised through its clients in Congress, to ensure that the wars continue for the indefinite future.

The privatization of military and intelligence institutions began even before the end of the Cold War. But during the 1990s, both Congress and the Bush and Clinton administrations opened the floodgates to arms and intelligence contractors and their political allies. The contracts soon became bigger and more concentrated in a handful of dominant companies. Between 1998 and 2003, private contractors were getting roughly half of the entire defense budget each year. The 50 biggest companies were getting more than half of the approximately $900 billion paid out in contracts during that time, and most were no-bid contracts, sole sourced, according to the Center for Public Integrity.

The contracts that had the biggest impact on the complex were for specialists working right in the Pentagon. The number of these contractors grew so rapidly and chaotically in the two decades after the Cold War that senior Pentagon officials did not even know the full extent of their numbers and reach. In 2010, then-secretary of defense Robert M. Gates even confessed to Washington Post reporters Dana Priest and William M. Arkin that he was unable to determine how many contractors worked in the Office of the Secretary of Defense, which includes the entire civilian side of the Pentagon.....

Yes it did. But it's because he spoke out by passing confidential information to someone that did not have clearance and did not need to know. Had he gone through the right channels and been the WB himself, he may have an argument

Breaking the chain of command, being a dishonest little bitch, and virtue signaling ended his career. Not the President.

I thought he had some sort of training command like a Basic Training Company.

Lt Colonel Alexander Vindman, 45, wrote a scathing op ed in The Washington Post on Saturday - the first day of his retirement.


I ask this with complete honesty, does anyone outside the Beltway actually read this shite or think it's important or meaningful in any way?

I'm trying to think what could appear in a WaPo or NYT op-ed that would have any direct affect on my life in any way, but Congress, K Street, and the MSM obsess about this shite on an hourly basis.

He was promoted to MAJ in 2008 and became a Foreign Area Officer (48E - Eurasia) that same year.

He had to have had “due course” infantry assignments along the way to make it to at least MAJ. It is highly doubtful he did not at least have a rifle company command.


Sir, he was YG99. Along with my YG, the Functional Area designations took place between the 5-7 year mark, which means he became part of the FA48 control branch 2-3 years before he was up for his Major's board.

I almost guarantee he wasn't selected for Company Command because he was tagged as an FAO early on in his Captain time.

Not completely true, even as an Infantry Officer.

A MITT team advisor role can actually be substituted for Company Command.

It is entirely possible for a Signal Officer in my YG to never serve as a Company or Battalion Commander, but get selected to a Brigade Command.

I've actually been told to my face by someone at HRC, and I quote, "Being a Battalion S6 carries the same level or responsibility, scope and weight as being a Company Commander."

That phrase, of course, is complete fricking horse shite.

In no way, shape or form does a Staff Primary EVER hold the same authority as a Commander.

True. I could put this to rest but I do not feel like putting in the work to research. Most natural path for him is company command in Germany in his second assignment. His combat patch is 25th ID. His regimental affiliation is 2nd ACR (thank God he is not a Wolfhound). We all agree he was scum. But I believe he really began to manifest himself when he became a FAO during (surprise, surprise) the Obama administration. Only one MSM means he only had one significant assignment as an Army officer, probably company command combined with staff time. Notice that he did not get the standard BSM for his time in Iraq in 2004. Probably an ARCOM.

This is why you are not worthy to serve in the US military any longer. You falsely claimed a legit phone call was not legit because Trump spoke about your boy Biden who has been hidin' some of his corrupt acts with Ukraine. Maybe you should get your facts straight before claiming a US prez committed an illegal act.
