US Army’s Combat Patch for ISIS Conflict Draws Flak over Design

A combat patch worn by U.S. soldiers who served in Iraq on the mission against Islamic State is drawing flak from service members and veterans who say the patch — with its palm wreath, stars and crossed scimitars — looks like something the enemy would wear.

The patch isn’t new. Soldiers serving in Operation Inherent Resolve have been sewing it onto their uniforms since April, shortly after the Army authorized it. There is also a medal version for wear on the Army Service Uniform, service spokesman Wayne Hall said on Thursday.

Army Secretary John McHugh approved the patch on March 23 and the service announced it in a message to troops four days later.

But a story on the patch posted on Army Times’ Facebook page has drawn a long string of criticism from readers who say the design makes it look more like a unit patch of a Middle Eastern military — or even something ISIS would wear.

The article, which ran in USA Today, quotes from an Army document stating that the crossed scimitars symbolize the twin goals of the U.S.-led coalition — to defeat the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS (also known as ISIL), and to restore stability in the region.

“Will these be issued to Iraqi troops so they can desert again and leave these patches for ISIS?” asked Army veteran Michael Daunais, a reference to instances in which Iraqi troops have gone over to the jihadists rather than fight them.

“You can keep that ISIS patch featuring swords that chop off our heads,” wrote David Clay, a former Army chief warrant officer.

Some commenters wrote that they initially thought the article was posted by The Duffleblog, a faux news site that satirizes the military.

Former Army Capt. Kevin Casas called the patch “100% Haji style!

“The team I worked with in the Jordanian Special Forces had a patch just like that, they were good guys, but the bad guys’ patch also looks like … that,” he continued. “How about an American looking style symbol? wtf man?”

The patch will only be available for US Army soldiers. The other service branches of the military are also participating in Operation Inherent Resolve against ISIS but will reportedly not be receiving patches.

“Unit insignia is important because it fosters esprit de corps,” the operation’s spokesman told USA Today. “The CJTF-OIR [Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve] headquarters is made up of men and women from all services, many nations and many different units in the Army. This insignia will be worn by all of the Army members of the CJTF and may be authorized for wear by other services and nations according to their regulations.”

Operation Inherent Resolve is a US-led bombing campaign against ISIS that began in August 2014.

Documents show Obama Administration’s close ties to Muslim Brotherhood

Muslim Brotherhood are the parent of all terrorist groups, including ISISHassan Al-Banna, founder of the Muslim Brotherhood sought to restore worldwide Islamic Caliphate. Since his childhood, Albanna  was attracted to extremists who were hostile to Western culture and to its system of rights, particularly women’s rights.

Al-Banna biggest dream was the restoration of the Islamic Caliphate. And it was this dream, which he believed could only become a reality by means of the sword, that won the hearts and minds of a growing legion of his Extremist followers.

The Obama administration conducted an assessment of the Muslim Brotherhood in 2010 and 2011, beginning even before the events known as the “Arab Spring” erupted in Tunisia and in Egypt. The President personally issued Presidential Study Directive 11 (PSD-11) in 2010, ordering an assessment of the Muslim Brotherhood and other “political Islamist” movements, including the ruling AKP in Turkey, ultimately concluding that the United States should shift from its longstanding policy of supporting “stability” in the Middle East and North Africa (that is, support for “stable regimes” even if they were authoritarian), to a policy of backing “moderate” Islamic political movements.

To this day, PSD-11 remains classified, in part because it reveals an embarrassingly naïve and uninformed view of trends in the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region.

The revelations were made by Al Hewar centre in Washington, DC, which obtained the documents in question.

Through an ongoing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit, thousands of pages of documentation of the US State Department’s dealings with the Muslim Brotherhood are in the process of being declassified and released to the public.

Obama purged military of those who sought victory.

Almost as soon as he took office, Obama began a military purge not dissimilar to those routinely conducted by third-world despots, with the goal of eliminating voices that might oppose his withdrawing America from the world stage.

The creation of the Islamic State (ISIS) can be blamed on President Barack Obama requiring our military scale back efforts in Iraq.

The US Military has a carefully designed culture of excellence and superiority.

Obama has done all he can in attempting to destroy that culture. The introduction of gays, women and transgenders into the ranks is part of his plan.  Forcing unreasonable political correctness into those ranks is another part.

As is firing or removing any who resist his sociopathic-driven culture change.
