Implications of the Chair Force getting the JCS chair? Posted on May 7, 2023 by PrepHole Contributor Implications of the Chair Force getting the JCS chair?
Is he a Obama era diversity hire? What are his qualifications?
Beyond that, it might make sense to have a Navy or Air Force officer in charge for the immediate future.
Fighter wing commands
CENTCOM Air command
PACOM Air command
Air Force Chief
I am actually shocked at how not-shit of a pick this guy is
I have expected nothing but the most fucktarded from this administration but this isn't bad
good morning sirs
>first reply is a screeching vatnik 4chantard
You are embarrassing yourself
Bot needs work
No one believes you are American, Ivan.
Russia MUST be defeated on the battlefield and seriously weakened for the foreseeable future. Not only for the future of our entire world, but specifically for the future of the "West". I hope this passes the purity test.
The "West' can still be criticized, regardless of your personal ideology. Don't be a reflection of /chug/.
Thank you. China is next.
>Russia MUST be defeated on the battlefield and seriously weakened for the foreseeable future
Done and done. What's your point, Zhang?
To be honest, it's not enough but I hope it'll end up being enough sooner rather than later. I wish Biden and co would have gotten a lot more aggressive a lot sooner. But that's not the thread topic, is it? I just want people to talk about who this guy is and what it might mean for him to be in this position.
Have a low effort meme I made earlier today.
>I wish Biden and co would
How nice of you to think a meme presidency would do anything.
good morning sir you can screen shot this one too.
No, but have another low effort meme.
>What are his qualifications?
That he reached the rank of 4-star general, for one. That he's been focused on China as a threat for the past 20 years and has led the air portion of Pacific Command.
>focused on China as a threat for the past 20 years and has led the air portion of Pacific Command.
This has got to be the major reason. They need someone focused on China as the major threat to the US now that its clear Russia is a bitch made failed state whose main threat to the US lies in nukes and not much else.
NOOOO THIS HURTS THE FEELINGS OF THE CHINESE PEOPLE AND AFRICAN ALLIES
>Focused on China
Based qualifications given how little focus was given to their rise.
Back to your containment board, worm.
You'll never be American. You'll never be part of a relevant polity or even culture. You'll perpetually lash out at your betters on the medium they created and (arguably mistakingly) provided to you. Your pathetic attempts to invoke participation in this boards in-group will always fail. Your only solace for a pathetic existence is baiting replies from people who feel sorry enough for you to point out your errors. It didn't have to be this way, but impotent rage and envy is all you'll ever know.
>All these fuckwits reeing over a legit question
Nothing like Bushbama warpigs getting pissed their military leaders are only good at one thing and that's prolonging conflucts for the military industrial complex
good morning sir
and it was immediately answered you gay
How fucking stupid do you have to be to ask of a career officer at the pinnacle of his career is a "diversity hire"?
Read a fucking book.
/pol/tard learns that America isn't 100% white
Well now, I reckon you're missing the point there, pardner. General Charles Brown's qualifications and competence as a military officer shouldn't be questioned simply because of his race or the era in which he was appointed. As a seasoned fighter pilot with over 2,900 flying hours and years of military leadership experience, he has proven himself time and time again. And I don't see how being in the Navy or Air Force would make someone more qualified to lead the Joint Chiefs of Staff than a member of the Air Force like General Brown. The man's got the skills and the expertise to do the job, and that's all that should matter.
Unanimous vote by the Senate for his last job. Safe to say he has earned it.
Oh we're fucked man.
People in the air force are usually more smarter.
I mean the Air Force has had JCS chairs since 1960 so it's not really a big deal
>but it's because he's black, anon!
Colin Powell was a thing, he was good at his job when he was the JCS chair
>I mean the Air Force has had JCS chairs since 1960 so it's not really a big deal
>Space Corps gets a member in the JCS and Coast Guard doesn't
>despite the Coast Guard being part of the armed forces since 1790
Isn't that because Coast Guard doesn't fall under the DoD but DHS?
DHS didn't exist until the 21st century. And I may be incorrect but I think the Coast Guard was originally part of the Department of the Treasury (can't allow smugglers to sneak by the tax man now can we?).
>implying there weren't Black generals half a fucking century ago
You shouldn't be allowed to disrespect KotH by using it as an avatar when you're a shithead millenial tourist. I hate you fake in-group gays so much, you're even worse than legitimate Russian shills.
>hurr but this is PrepHole why isn't my offkey trolling being celebrated?!
Ironic shitposting is still shitposting.
>implying there weren't Black generals half a fucking century ago
Seriously, we had black generals in WW2, back when the army was still segregated.
Forgot pic. He was a Brigadier in 1940
Solid dude by all accounts. I hope he doesn't get politicized.
The US military tends to avoid a lot of the politicization problems that are endemic to the Russian and Chinese militaries simply because for the most part (but not always), our politicians don't pretend they know how to conduct war better than our generals so they tend to just point in a direction and tell the military to figure out how to fight it.
In b4 out of context PRspeak cherrypicked by a butthurt vatnik in reply to this post.
Where have you been, Trump appointed this guy to the JCS 3 years ago. The senate voted him in 98-0
[laughs] You magnificent son of a bitch! You're the last guy I expected to see.
You might be a damn pirate, Raynor, but whatever happens, you saved my boys today. And I won't forget that.
The Air Force has always been a laughing stock in every endeavor it was involved in. Its only talent is teamkills, being fat, whining about their PT and spending money.
Outside of the 20 men that make up AFSOC and the fighter pilots themselves, everyone in that branch should be mocked until they die.
Bait accepted...would you like to enter modern war without A or B? A10 or ICBM?
But I embrace anyone who will defend the line and wait for the drones. God loves the Infantry.
whats the context on this guy
Retarded airman who solicited his non existent skills as a hitman, obviously was immediately caught by a glowie. Called himself the reaper because he was able to pass rifle qual in basic
>Implications of the Chair Force getting the JCS chair?
When blacks are in power, they make everything shitty even for their own people.
NOOOOOO OH MY POL THEY ELECTED A HECKIN BLACKERINO? NOOOOOOO!!!
I'm looking forward to him repeating Milley's performance before Congress about the threat of 'white rage.' It's a form of danegeld that will be pro forma from now on.
He's black, which means the administration's not gonna require the performative bullshit of him like they do Milley.
All indications are that he's a serious guy, not a "climate change is our #1 military threat" type.
Can't be worse than Milley.
>Chair Force getting the JCS chair
Amazing how a guy can work up the ladder. He started as a lowly Soft Serve Ice Cream Tech.
We all gotta start somewhere, I'd have a lot less faith in the US military is all of our generals were the sons of former generals. He was the son of a colonel but when you greatly outrank your dad, I have to assume you earned it.
>is all of our generals
>Actual F-16 pilot
Nature is healing.
You know what they say, it's the one branch where the officers are the people trusted to do the fighting.
>When the shit hits the fan, the young Army private wakes up from a bellow from the First Sergeant. He grabs a set of BDUs out of his foot locker, gets dressed, runs down to the chow-hall for a breakfast on the run, then jumps in his tank. Pretty soon, the Platoon Commander arrives, gives him a big salute, and says, "Give 'em Hell, men."
>Now take the Marines. When the shit hits the fan, the young Marine recruit is kicked out of bed by his First Sergeant, puts on a muddy set of BDUs because he just got back in from the field three hours before. He gets no breakfast, but is told to feel free to chew on his boots. He runs out and forms up with his rifle. Pretty soon, his platoon commander comes out, a Captain, gives his Marines a sharp salute, and says, "Give 'em Hell, Marines!"
>Now take the Navy. When the shit hits the fan, the young Sailor is eating breakfast in the mess room.. He walks 20 feet to his battle station, stuffing extra pastries in his pocket as he goes. There he sits, in the middle of a steel target, with nowhere to run, when the Captain comes on the 1MC and says, "Give 'em Hell, Sailors! I salute you!"
>Now the Air Force. When the shit hits the fan, the Airman receives a phone call in his off-base quarters. He gets up, showers, shaves, and puts on a uniform he had just picked up from the BX cleaners the day before. He jumps in his car, and stops at McDonalds for a McMuffin on his way into work. Once he arrives at work, he signs in on the duty roster and proceeds to his F-16. He spends 30 minutes pre-flighting it, signs off the forms. Pretty soon the pilot, a young captain gets out and straps into the Plane. He starts the engines. Our Young Airman stands at attention, gives the captain a sharp salute, and says, "Give 'em Hell, Sir!"
Reality is even easier. The F-16 will have been previously postflighted/preflighted after last flight. Pull the covers, open the canopy, pull and stow the seat pins and do a quick walkaround since you're there anyway even if the forms are signed off.
F-16s are quite simple to deal with making it easy to exceed 90% FMC rates during wartime and maintain that rate as long as necessary. Biggest LIMFAC in Desert Storm was aircrew rest, the jets stayed ready and rarely required maintainers work much over our nominal 12-hour shifts.
War could be brutal tho. The heat pump on my tent broke just before I left for day shift during which I lived in terror it would not be swapped by shift change, but our brave Civil Engineers swapped it out in time. (CE were legit awesome building so many facilities so quickly. Combat engineers make war happen and really should get more respect.)
>Heat pump broke
>Marine is kicked out of bed by his Corporal
>his platoon commander comes out
>goes right back in
>gunny/SSgt briefs the mission
>dismisses the formation or school circle
Fixed teh wrong bits.
Ahhh the corporal of marines, all the responsibility of an NCO with half the power and none of the prestige.
>PrepHole not being racist for once
I am shocked.
I'm not going to say that the US military is the perfect meritocracy or anything but you don't get to the rank of 4 star general without earning it.
>you don't get to the rank of 4 star general without earning it
Everything past O-4 is politicking. don't kid yourself.
The CCAF, MyPers, MyFSS, and about a trillion other things were totally fucked up under this guy. In the grand scheme of things those are basically meaningless but I don't know a single thing he's accomplished.
