Is Combat Flip Flops Anti-War?

Combat Flip Flops Anti War

Question #1
Are we Anti-war?


Fuck yes we are.

Have you ever been in a war? Seen your friends shot through the face? Attended a funeral for a brother that couldn’t take it anymore? Seen an injured child loaded onto a CASEVAC bird? Because of a war?

Wars are stupid.

As Steinbeck states,
“All war is a symptom of man’s failure as a thinking animal.”

As a species, we have been repeating this insane habit of putting little metal projectiles into one another as a method of foreign policy because our leaders can’t figure out how to do their job. Then they sell it to us as an honorable, massive achievement after we spend trillions of dollars putting ourselves in the same position to do it all over again. Wasting human potential and natural resources through the entire process. When you say it out loud, the absurdity of war should be apparent.

The Definition of Stupid: Knowing the truth, seeing the truth, but still believing in the lies.

Question #2
You help Afghan women, not Veterans. What is the purpose of this?

I’m going to ask you to stop reading this post, click HERE, then come back to finish the rest of this response. We’re vets and we spend a considerable amount of time helping our community. Educating little girls and helping veterans are not mutually exclusive endeavors.

As for helping women, I’ll ask you a few questions back, “Was your mother educated? Did she care about your education?”  

We educate women because we know, from experience and clinical studies that educating women is an extremely effective and responsible way to positively affect a developing nation. And, if the nation improves, we hopefully won’t have to send our sons and daughters to fight another war.  

Think 1980s in Afghanistan, what we did as a nation then, then think about what we’ve been doing since 2001, and now ponder our current policies for Afghanistan.  

Or if you want an easier example—Iraq.  

Please re-read my response to question number 1. If you want to avoid the insanity, we suggest educating women. As a nation, we’ve spent a great deal of human and financial capital on less solid plans. If you have any suggestions that doesn’t involve the loss of human life and builds a sustainable, peaceful relationships between nations—comment below.

Question #3
How long does it take to get your flip flops?

Depends. We have dedicated team that knows every box that leaves the garage puts a girl in school for a day—everybody here is motivated. Lots of flip flops leave the shop daily.

Yeah. I get it. We’re not a major brand that has inventory sitting at your local fulfillment shop with 1-day delivery. We’re a veteran-owned small business working out of a cramped-ass garage, employing people in conflict zones, making high quality gear, that gives back.

This year, we’re going to do at least 600% growth. It’s tough to forecast, but I can make you a promise: If you order them, we will get them to you. Current back orders range from 1 day to 4 weeks. Read the product description or email customer service if you want better understanding of when your gear will ship.

Question #4
What are the Unarmed Forces?

If you’re pro-shooting-everybody-that-doesn’t-agree-with-you, than we’re probably not the company for you.

If you think that people should be educated, have jobs, and stop shooting one another, than you’re welcome to stand with us. We’d love to have you in the Unarmed Forces community.

    As a former Combat Medic in Vietnam, I think what you are doing is great. I often tell people that war is direct evidence of our failures not our successes. While I am anti war, I still support the right to gun ownership and advocate for Root Cause Mitigation as a way to end most gun violence rather than outright bans.

    Awesome response. I didn’t have the infantry experience, but in the C-130 hauled enough “HR” and smelled enough Medevac missions to know that the price of war is beyond stupid. It is sad and dangerous that our country is so addicted to war, and our fellow citizens have become so numb to it – and down the path it takes us. Thought you might appreciate I came across the original Quaker “SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER” report from 1955 – it’s all there! Prophetic and sad at the same time. Take out the religious part if you want, but people have known all along where the road militarism will take us. I love what you are doing. Power to the Unarmed Forces.

    Not a vet, but the daughter of a WW II vet. Love what you guys are doing. And you must be doing something right cause the haters are coming out if the woodwork. Continue the good fight and God bless

    Do you have anything sturdier than flip-flops?
    Big wars are started by elites who are energy vampires and not totally human. Look up David Icke, Credo Mutwa and what really weird stuff Hitler did for entertainment. I mean this will make a normal human barf.
    I’m a normal human, I think. Be blessed.

    @Gary- Yes, that’s the T55 at A-bad. That was the day the Ranger mechanics got it fired up after sitting for a few years. Pretty cool experience.
