Political Correctness ...
Just when you think it can't get more idiotic.

" Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former".

Madame butterfly is one of my favorites, have seen it several times in various places, but have to admit that overall a Verdi fan. Agree that Turandot is fantastic. M14s and opera, interesting mix.

Have you seen the opera platform (http://www.theoperaplatform.eu)? I don't know if it's still available, but they had a really good La Traviata and La Boheme is available to stream. Some need a European IP address though, but I don't know if it's cool to say that there are ways around it, me being new to this forum and all.

At least the enemy will go to his grave knowing he was killed by a politically correct mortar round :)

There is some talk of stopping the social experiments. But the author keeps referencing "experts"

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017...y-experts.html

Trump Pentagon likely to abandon social experiments for core mission under Mattis, say experts
Fox News, Jan 11, 2017, Brooke Singman

"The Pentagon could be poised for a rapid about-face under the Trump administration, with the Obama administration’s push for social reform surrendering to what could be an old-school emphasis on combat readiness and the spirit of the United States military, experts told FoxNews.com.

Under President Obama, the military sought to integrate transgender persons into the ranks, allow women into special operations forces and purge the nomenclature of gender-specific words, adopting what some critics say was a “politically correct” liberal agenda. That’s a contrast to the traditional U.S. military approach.

In addition, some Navy ships have been named for civil rights activists. And while the Obama administration has taken an inclusive approach on some issues, it has also worked to minimize expressions of Christianity in the ranks. For example, several officers have been disciplined for displaying Bibles or gospel verses in their quarters. "

We're approaching this the wrong way. If it isn't a significant degradation of performance or training, not cost prohibitive, and not used operationally, then what this really is is a unifying project.

The more things we do like this and the more small steps we take to get support from all the citizens of this fine country, the more support we will have for the times when the military needs to be no nonsense and lethal.

That's easy money in my mind.

What's the big deal if this is just about training ammo, as CAVman said?

Yea, but today it's just training rounds, tomorrow it could be rubber anti-tank rounds in combat. You know, like paint ball.

You hit the enemy tank and it leaves some green paint and you tell them you hit them so they have to go home or something.
