Finally, a real warrior has emerged from the morass of leftist jellyfish trolling through the hallways of the Pentagon.
Finally, a real warrior has come forward to speak the truth – war is hell and the US military is currently in the process of sending as many ISIS fighters to the gates of Hades where they belong.
The news exploded today with the story of the army’s senior enlisted man, Command Sergeant Major John Wayne Troxell (you can’t make this stuff up) who stated on Tuesday in a Facebook post:
“ISIS needs to understand that the Joint Force is on orders to annihilate them. So, they have two options should they decide to come up against the United States, our allies and partners: surrender or die!
If they surrender, we will safeguard them to their detainee facility cell, provide them chow, a cot and due process.
HOWEVER, if they choose not to surrender, then we will kill them with extreme prejudice, whether that be through security force assistance, by dropping bombs on them, shooting them in the face, or beating them to death with our entrenching tools (aka shovels).
Regardless, they cannot win, so they need to choose how it’s going to be.”
Troxell may have recently read the story of the British SAS trooper, who killed a jihadist with an entrenching tool in Afghanistan, after the elite soldiers ran out of ammunition. Or, perhaps, Troxell has studied Spetsnaz manuals. It has been a long practice among Soviet and Russian Special Forces troopers to use entrenching tools as weapons.
Nevertheless, Troxells’ comments are a brilliant bit of psychological warfare. ISIS is on the run now in the Middle East, having lost territory in the last year the size of Ohio. President Trump has done in one year, what Barack Obama couldn’t do in eight years, to his so-called JV Team. While Obama was in office, ISIS ran amok in Iraq and Syria, raping, murdering and torturing tens of thousands of innocent people, while Ash Carter’s Operation Inherent Resolve was nothing more than a Five O’Clock Charlie production dropping one bomb a day on sand dunes.
Things have changed…It’s called having a Republican as President and not the Kenyan UNICEF Ambassador as commander in chief.
ISIS is on the run. They’re being killed from the air, on the ground, at night while they sleep and during morning prayers. Now, the army’s senior enlisted man has told them we are going to bash in their brains with shovels.
Damned straight we are! Kill ‘em all and let Allah sort ‘em out.
But, John Wayne Troxell’s comments are more than just macho bluster or psychological terror. They are a sign that in the military, which is literally drowning in social justice warriors, feminists and liberal candyasses, there are a few warriors left who are ready to lead and lead boldy.
Of course Troxell isn’t an officer. I doubt the army can find a senior leader above the rank of lieutenant colonel who has the professional courage to make such a statement. The military’s senior leaders are too busy rationalizing every form of social engineering lunacy that lands on their desks. Everything is okay with Generation Rationalization in the military. Don’t want to do anything to rock the boat and endanger that pension, Tricare and that PX parking spot for the Mrs…
That’s why John Wayne Troxell is a bright, shining beacon in a sea of Pentagon fog. In a military of Spencer Rapones, Reality Winnners, Chelsea Mannings, Bowe Bergdahls, Jeffrey Nances, transgenders, lactation memos, Mommy Rangers, Grandma Green Berets and Liberace, your company commander, knowing Troxell is out there gives me a small speck of hope that the Hour of the Clusterfu*k might possibly be avoided.
Of course not everyone agrees with me. Everyone defined as the Obama loving pinkos who infiltrated our military and whose mission it is to turn the armed forces into a San Francisco freak show. There was absolute outrage across Facebook today that Troxell was actually talking about killing the bad guys and killing them with shovels. I’m not sure what liberals think happens in a war, but it is generally extremely violent and has been since man first swung a club at another man in anger. But, that’s part of the leftwing fantasy about the military; that it’s nothing different than if you worked at Quaker Oats. If the military is no different than a civilian job, that means that everyone from your 100 year old auntie to the guy who wears his moms undies can sign up for a stint. That’s where they get it all wrong and why the left is so dangerous and that’s why John Wayne Troxell’s appearance on the stage is so important. He is one of the few people telling the world that war is hell and that the army needs the roughest toughest sons of bitches in the country to bring doom on our enemies.
Yet, one wonders how long Troxell will last on active duty after making this politically incorrect statement. I’m sure the phones have already been ringing off the hook in the Troxell commo bunker; calls from Gillibrand, McCaskill, Kamala Harris Trotsky, Warren, Schumer, Pelosi and Gloria Allred are no doubt filling up the CSM’s voicemail.
Get ready for an apology, a guest appearance on an Oprah special where he’ll cry and repent, claiming he’s a victim of toxic masculinity and his subsequent echo tango suitcase from the lean green machine quicker than you can say, ‘shake and bake’, ISIS in the open.
In today’s army, Troxell has no longer than 10 and wake up before he hangs up his fruit salad and lets his crew cut grow out. After all, the army just s-canned a two star general because he referred to some Millennial bimbo as ‘sweetheart.’
But, maybe, just maybe, he’ll survive the liberal back blast. If so, he might just be our next Secretary of Defense.
As for ISIS, pay no attention to the rectangular plastic boxes marked, ‘Front towards Enemy.” Consider them a gift from John Wayne Troxell.
