Defense is best when it's diverse

 Best for whom, one has to ask:

The Ministry of Defence has come under fire for having more diversity and equality officers than the Royal Navy has warships. The figures emerged yesterday, after veterans minister Johnny Mercer told parliament that there were 44 civil servants in the ministry and its executive agencies who had 'diversity' and 'equality' in their job title. 

In comparison, the Royal Navy possesses only thirteen frigates, six destroyers, two aircraft carriers and eleven submarines, a total of 32.

The MOD has a target of increasing the number of black, Asian and minority ethnic personnel from 8 per cent to 10 per cent. A ministry spokesman told the Times: 'Defence is at its best when it's diverse ... Our appointment of these diversity and equality officers shows that we are moving beyond platitudes and putting our words into action.' 

Apparently every single military historian and strategist is wrong, as diversity and inclusion have turned out to be the vital elements for successful warfighting. If only Caesar and Alexander had known!

I don't know, the commissars whipped the red army into an effective force - nothing like knowing your own side will shoot you if your attack fails....

The military in most countries (NOT the US, incidentally) are pretty much welfare/jobs programs as precious few of them ever expect to actually go to war.

How dystopian are these nonsense platitudes we're all required to nod sagely to. "Defense is at its best when it's diverse!" What does that mean? The fact that pretty much everyone takes such a statement as profound and unquestionable is incredibly alienating.

Yeah, I think that's how Alexander really won at Issus, diversity. Contrary to conventional wisdom, he didn't choose the battlefield carefully and anticipate what the Persians would do. No, his forces more closely matched the demographic composition of their home regions. Therefore he won.

Blogger Ominous Cowherd September 14, 2020 1:13 PM  

The RN has 32 ships. I suppose with no empire and no borders, they really don't need any more.

If they sold all the ships, I wonder how many more Equality and Diversity Officers they could afford?

Are any of those UK submarines attack subs with torpedoes? Or are they all boomers? They need attack submarines with torpedoes that will be able to sink the French and Dutch boats which will invade after the end of this year. Or do you think the French and Dutch will actually comply with the law, for a change? Of course, they also need leaders with the cojones to order the use of those torpedoes...

These are the KGB or SS "political officers" or loyalty detectives from a couple of submarine movies, maybe the two most famous. The difference now in Year Zero? They are anti-loyalty officers.

Hannibal's army was rather diverse--a hodgepodge of peoples and languages. He consistently beat up on the more unified Romans. However, the unified Romans had the greater staying power. The Romans could overcome their devastating defeat at Cannae, but Hannibal could not overcome his devastating defeat at Zama.

Blogger Oswald September 14, 2020 2:12 PM  

Winston Churchill once said "I will tell you about the traditions of the Royal Navy: Rum, Sodomy and the lash. Those are the traditions of the Royal Navy."

Seems like diversity would hold up those traditions.

And to think Genghis only had one equality and diversity officer. For shame.

Blogger Mr.MantraMan September 14, 2020 2:18 PM  

Since the DM cannot consist entirely of breast click bait the other 5% contains the hated hot button word "diversity." At 746 likes the best rated comment compared it to the USSR and its political officers. Since "Whites" seemingly accept their guilt over something or another depending on the day this will continue because the best that conservatives can come up with sound like plea bargains or pleas for lenient sentencing.

I hate conservatives, trillions of IQ points and still bested by low IQ marching morons of the Left lead by a small percentage of evil Sarumans.

Not too many I'm afraid. Canada bought 4 of their old subs, maiden voyage one caught on fire. I guess they need screen doors or something. Once their navy is done with ships, they are scrap. At least the canadian navy finally has more submarines than the west edmonton mall, ending that stupid old joke.

The entire U.S. Military is headed for a Red Army style dual command structure and I wish to god I was exaggerating even a little bit.

I was going to say that's ok as long as they don't let frenchies in ... then I considered that this might be the UK's parallel to how we ended up with Vichy France in the first place: the deliberate fracturing of the native populace by a constant stream of aliens, financial shenanigans and political gerrymandering, etc. It looks a long fall from Charlemagne to Petain.

And now we know that Winnie the Pooh has purchased another general officer. Or, maybe that general officer is doing this to advertise that he is up for bid. Or, maybe it's just a satanic thirst to destroy. There are so many reasons to go wrong ...

Well, it worked for the Russian communists about 70 years ago when they fought off the invading National Socialists, right?
They had very diverse armies with women, political officers, cossacks, the whole works!
And they turned Hitler back, so we can clearly see that diversity succeeds!
If the Japanese in WWII had been diverse, they wouldn't have lost to those American Capitalists and their stooges!

There is a novel, published about 2012 or so, The Day of the Dogs, by Doug McIntosh. He lived in Portland, OR. at the time and still does. Some four blocks from antifa/blm blessings that have been going on for over 100 days.
This novel involved massive terrorist attacks on the USA a few days before a severe CME event [coronal mass ejection from the sun, like the Carrinton event in 1859] It was prescient in 2012 that it detailed, in gruesomely much of what is happening in Portland right now. To say I enjoyed it would be incorrect. It was good, well worth reading. I enjoyed the wordsmith effort there. More than that, was the eye witness like detail that could have been done today about Portlands current woes. It was eerie. The thing is on amazon and the price is more than right with almost 500 pages of material. Thats what I like in an interesting novel, plenty to read.

Were I Russia, what would I do with any part of Europe?
The wisest thing that Russia could / would do is offer support to those political party(s) and NGO's that actively oppose Diversity.
Russia cannot possibly want Europe to become Brazil on a continental scale.

His was a mercenary army made up of Iberians, Celtiberians, Gauls, Libians and other north africans ans some italic nations. The roman army was made up of Romans citizens. We know how the history unfolded. Military genius without a cohesive force behind it only takes you so far. Also take the Spartans, a successful cohesive force made up entirely of Spartans.
