/gg/ General General: Why some many generals in DOD?

No.37619639 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
US Marines: 60 Generals, 186,000 active duty
US Air Force: 300 Generals, 318,415 active duty
US Army: 231 Generals, 476,000 active duty

Why is this? The US Air Force has the same amount of generals it did in 1947 with a force of 1.1 million active duty as it does today.

The US Marines had 81 Generals in WW2 for a force of 474,680 and only lost 21 billets to command a force 1/4th of that size.

What gives?

What does /k/ think of American militias?

No.37613751 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Don't get me wrong, I fully support the Second Amendment and what it has to offer, but I think the concept of a "militia" has been dragged through the mud.

In colonial days, the militia was your community fighting force and main form of protection from all enemies foreign and domestic. Nowadays, you have Neighborhood Watch groups looking after your homes, HOA security if you live in an upscale neighborhood, and a National Guard to provide serious firepower with the best the US military has to offer. So what effective fighting force do these militia groups claim to have when most of their members are a bunch of old, fat guys sporting some kind of $400 knockoff AR-15 and probabaly can't even run across the street without their CPAP machine? They think that piling half a dozen of their beer buddies in the truck bed of a busted up Dodge Ram is somehow going to send a message to a bunch of physical fit, 20 something year olds with fully automatic weapons, riding a heavily armoured personnel carrier and a drone overhead providing close air support. Even the drug cartels are probably laughing at them with their full auto AK's and ability to effortlessly cross a hundred miles desert with only a bottle of water.

I feel the only roles of the militia in today's society are to offer security during city riots and legal protests, and offer disaster relief through means of supply runs. I might even go as far as saying they might have a role in being educators for the US Constitution, but even this they mostly fail at because most of them are uneducated on language and history, and think that somehow defending Christianity in America has something to do with the Constitution. Some militias claim to work with law enforcement and provide tips on criminal activity in the area, but Officer Henry is probably just laughing at himself and telling Mr. Black Widow Commander to head off back to his neighborhood BBQ.

All jokes and sarcasm aside, what does /k/ think?
