The Main Tenets of War

The Main (Fundamentals) of War

Dempsey1It ostensibly means more to me each day and night. One who does not see some limitations in their own lives literally influences everything they want to do in that life. Most importantly however is when the decisions of the person who does not see their own limitations, makes decisions that will affect almost everyone in the world.

We believe that President Obama is in the prelude of making a huge mistake that will affect most people of the world. We further believe that the president has read and agrees with the most biased and distorted media now, in this country. Whoever even considered this person the Commander-in-Chief outside of title and an add-on position with the presidency, allow me to be the first:

The American people should assist in sponsoring legislation that would keep the health and safety of our armed forces to a maximum. What we believe is that if a person is given a title the Congress or the Supreme Court should be able to intervene as to whether or not the individual is capable, moreover, has the mental competence to act on that title.

The United States has what is referred to as the Joint Staff. This organization is made up of the heads of all branches of the military with each having a staff of analysts giving personnel for every situation imaginable. Hence, this is where the Joint-Chiefs-of-Staff come into the picture of course with one designate to be the Commander, Joint-Chiefs-of-Staff.

There is absolutely nothing as mystifying and special than that of just meeting one of these Joint-Staff members. But just walking into a room when they meet and seeing more decorations and stars, bars, anchors, and a raw sense of war knowledge can be a bit overwhelming.

The biggest difference between those who are on the Joint-Staff and a Commander-in-Chief is in the reality that those of the Joint-Staff have earned their right to even be considered for the positions. What has President Obama done that has earned him the title of Commander-in-Chief? Nothing. What have the people among the Joint-Chiefs-of-Staff done to earn their titles and position?

War — my friends has a definition that is anything but jovial or happy. War — by definition is to go up against your 030326_war_03_jpgenemy; however, there are management particulars that attach to each aspect of that war. Three basic tenets of war are to defeat and/or disseminate your enemy’s forces beyond repair. The second basic tenet is to hold the ground in which your military has taken. The third tenet of war is to take out as much infrastructure that is necessary for the supervised rebuilding with a new Chief in town.

These tried and very true tenets of war is what works as opposed to those that do not work. Examples of the tenets in real life: Early World War II (WWII) was amassed with companies, battalions, and divisions of soldiers fighting the will and testament of the German military. The German military machine was completely disseminated. Anyone ever wonder why the US still has a command presence there? Oh yes, Germany proved to be a vastly superior force than our Staff’s generally believed and therefore, the U.S. was not about ready to say, “okay we are leaving now; make sure to build your own democratic government.”

Gulf_War_PhotoboxFortunately for the U.S. we were not into building Nation-States at that time. Mind you the great empire of Germany was split into four separate constituencies…one for the U.S., and one for the Soviets, one for the Great Britain, and the fourth was for Germany.

Now if we view the South Pacific in the later portion of WWII the precise same three tenets of war were put into place. Japan still does have U.S. military present on Okinawa. The other two tenets were concluded in a different way; yet, were nonetheless necessary.

Same holds true in South Korea. In fact the only times the war tenets were not held true was in Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan. Please believe me when I say that the Joint-Chief’s are not in total compliance with their Commander. Neither am I.
