US military taught future leaders 'total war' against Islam: Report

Pentagon confirms course material; Gen Dempsey calls for an enquiry, terms course as 'objectionable'.

Web Desk May 11, 2012

While calling for an investigation against a course about Islam taught at one of United States’ top military schools, US military’s top officer, General Martin Dempsey has called it “totally objectionable”, BBC reported Friday.

The news was broken by Wired, which had said that the US military was teaching its “future leaders” that a “total war” was needed to counter the 1.4 billion Muslims around the world in order to protect US from Islamic terrorists.

The course further taught that there was no concept of “moderate Islam” and that the whole religion should be considered an enemy.

While campaigning for a “total war” against all the world's Muslims, the course further taught about possible nuclear attacks on the holy cities of Makkah and Medina.

The Pentagon confirmed the course material found on the website and is expecting that the investigation report will be compiled by the end of this month.

The investigation aims to find out why such a course was a part of the curriculum at the Defense Department’s Joint Forces Staff College.

General Dempsey said that the course was “counter to our values of appreciation for religious freedom and cultural awareness” and “just objectionable, academically irresponsible”

The issue surfaced when one of the officers who had attended the course had complained.

The US military officer, who delivered the lectures, Army Lieutenant Colonel Matthew A Dooley, was suspended from teaching at the college, however, he wasn’t fired.

The officers who attended Dooley’s lectures, listening to the inciting course, have now moved into higher-level assignments throughout the US military.

@Green Peace: You are biggest Fool i have ever came across. Tell me who wages two world war on world and killed innocent civilian using atombombs. If you kill innocents using atom bombs still you are not peaceful and if we kill American terrorists then we are using religious knife.

Actually most terrorist religion is Christina and Jews whose top religious leaders are busy in child molestation and other illegal activities.

How you people are thinking absurd about us without looking your own deeds

Its time that the muslims united as one Ummah and started an Islamic government in each and every muslim country and traded closely with each other and made a United Islamic Army to defend ourselves and our Holy Cities.
