Mike Pence tells US military graduates they should expect to see combat

VP Mike Pence, speaking to the graduating class of the US Military Academy, said the world is ’a dangerous place’ and they should expect to see combat. ’Some of you will join the fight against radical Islamic terrorists in Afghanistan and Iraq’, Pence said. Pence added that some may even be called upon to ’serve in this hemisphere’, a reference to the tensions along the border and Venezuela.

Addressing this picture: As a Vet, I'm wondering why there is one white woman in the picture and the rest are black women brandishing swords.Whats the point other than socjus? Sorry priveledged maams, but the military has no room for your socjus bullshit. One team. One fight. You want to bring your sex and race into into it, then get the fuck out. If you dont, your enlisted subordinates will find out and will destroy you. We dirty, low class, enlisted arent part of your fucking cult and will make sure your first tour is career suicide just for laughs and to make a point. We arent as dumb as you think we are, but have a better idea of what the military is supposed to be than you, maam.

There is no room in the military culture for “subcultures” beyond Officer and Enlisted. There is no room for “I’m black therefore”. Sorry ladies, if you think you’re special because of your skin color, You’re going to get a rude awakening

Wow, even the military is embracing identity politics. Shouldn't we only see on soldiers graduating and not see them as women or persons of color, etc?

Why is this news? Obviously a military force should expect to get sent into combat. What do they think, the US is paying them to stand around and look pretty?

oh we're so screwed, 34 out of the 980 cadets are black women. 223 of those 980 are women....sound the fucking alarms....for fucks sake stop getting triggered. I'll give Pence credit for being very respectful and acknowledging the accomplishments of these women for graduating an elite academy and serving in the armed forces. There is just no winning with you crazy conservatives, you constantly talk about how minorities need to pull themselves out of poverty and do good for America but when they decide to actually do that you get triggered over a stupid picture.

How sombering that every West Point Graduate since 2002 has been sent to combat. And the sad part is that this madness will continue long after Trump is gone. Now we know why companies like Ford stopped being a car company. In addition to low demands due to decreasing living standards for regular Americans, The country has found war as a more profitable alternative. This will soon reach Metal Gear Solid 4 levels of insanity if we continue to spend money abroad on military adventures like the Imperial Japanese Army almost a century ago.

Until he has a vagina that gives birth to thousands of humans, only then will he have an authority to send OUR children to fight for profit wars. Let’s go Pence, time to get busy birthing your military human supply. You birth and raise at least one human and then send them to die. Our kids are not your war meat.

I don't see why this is such a "controversial" statement. You joined the military.....Yes going to war is part of that. If you joined and are not ready to go to war then what are you doing? Pence as far as I'm concerned made a non-statement.
