LOSS OF CONFIDENCE

LACK OF LEADERSHIP-CONDUCT UNBECOMING

Major General Anthony Cucola III issused  an order in November stating that any solider or civilian under his command that gets pregnant or causes a pregnancy will be court martialed with prison time a possible outcome.  This law is only applicable to troops under his command in Northern Iraq.

Given that 3000 rapes were reported last year in the army (how many do you think there really were) makes this order way beyond illegal in my book.  Last time I looked the UCMJ was the law military people live by, I was told once by a Exec Officer who pretended to be a bad ass, that if we wanted to know what our punishment would be for an offense all we had to do was look at the UCMJ and go to maximum for our offense and we would know.  Getting pregnant wasn’t on the list.  In my day it was a sure out of the military for a women who got pregnant.  Of course there wern’t that many in those ancient times.  When we expanded the female role in the military like it or not that pregnancy happens and we didn’t pass any rules that said it was a punishable offense.  Even the Navy just transfers the lady ashore for a period to have her baby.  No bullshit about punishment.

To me it shows how desperate the Army is for warm bodies and continues to show the lack of moral leadership by the higher Command structure.  Cases like the Pat Tillman coverup (by the General now commanding in Afghanistan) to the cover up of the danger of depleted uranium, to the cover up of suicides, to the mistreatment of returning wounded, to the denial of PTSD and on and  on.  There is only one cure for this kind of failure and it exercised often in the Submarine Force,  when a Captain ((and or the crew) fucks up badly the Captain is relieved on a “LACK OF CONFIDENCE”  .  In this case I would start relieving at the Secretary of Defense level (and I could even justify the President)(HE IS THE COMMANDER IN CHIEF)  and on down the entire Chain of  Command.
