Pentagon Announces Plan Guaranteeing Disabled Americans, Teenagers Right To Military Service | The Duffel Blog


The Pentagon has confirmed its study into the possibility of allowing the handicapped, teenagers, the elderly, foreign nationals, and others the same rights to military service as everyone else in the world.

“This is where we have been heading as a department for more than ten years,” Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told reporters. “This will take some time, but it will happen. Not everyone is going to be a soldier, but everyone, no matter what their circumstances, is entitled to a chance.”

Panetta stressed that opening up opportunities in the military would not compromise military readiness or war-fighting capabilities, and believes it would actually make the force stronger.

    OK, now I find myself in an utter state of disbelief. Whatever they’re smokin’ I want some of that s _ _ _ because it has to be good.

  2. I fell for it, until I saw “The Duffel Blog”.

    Don’t dismiss this easily. I know it’s satire, but on the other hand, I put absolutely nothing past this administration. They make up their own rules.

  4. I could handle that. Just gimme the bar and send me to Rucker. I’m sure the Medicos can handle the aches from my arthritis and spine while I get rated.

    One good thing about this blog is that it pointed me to the Duffel Blog. An amusing place.

    I guess the liberals have found jobs for all those Downs syndrome kids who survived democrat and planned parenthood abortions.
