Gentle Reminder To Instapundit

The mighty Instapundit makes the point:

The Pentagon’s swift and coordinated ‘smiting’ of Tucker Carlson, who had the gall to ‘diss’ the idea of sending pregnant women to war—an obviously absurd idea to all but the most politically correct officers grasping for a promotion—makes it very clear.”

This is what they do instead of winning wars, something they haven’t done even once this century despite nonstop combat.

It’s absolutely the case that the military hasn’t been impressive of late. I was bemoaning the current shambles with an active duty friend just two days ago.

Nevertheless, one must not lose sight of the truth that the military is mechanism, not policy. It’s not Oldsmobile’s fault that a Delmont 88 makes a terrible submarine. You’ll have to bring that up with the driver.

Here, the driver is “We the People”. I wouldn’t go fearing military death squads anytime soon. On the other hand, the method for correcting our course and steering clear of the Full Banana Republic Experience is unclear.
