Air Force plans to begin Stop-Loss
By Senior Master Sgt. Andrew Stanley
WASHINGTON -- After weighing several options, the Air Force will implement Stop-Loss, halting separations and retirements for people in critical career fields who planned to leave the service.
Stop-Loss will follow President Clinton's decision in late April to call up Reserve forces to support the NATO mission in Kosovo. The formal announcement, including a list of critical skills affected and the effective date, will be made within a week, according to personnel officials.
Under Title 10 of the U.S. Code, Stop-Loss may be used to temporarily suspend voluntary separations and retirements. This includes discharges, resignations and Reserve Component transfers to a lesser readiness category. This can also affect promotions of members of the armed forces while a presidential call-up or mobilization is in effect. In this instance, Stop-Loss will last indefinitely, pending resolution of the situation in Kosovo.
However, the Air Force does not intend to hold up any service separations of individuals not critical to the mission.
Maj. Gen. Susan Pamerleau, Air Force director of personnel force management, said, "We must implement Stop-Loss to preserve our operational capability and retain critical skills necessary to perform the Operation Allied Force mission."
Stop-Loss was last used during the massive air strikes of Operation Desert Storm in 1991. This time the Air Force has analyzed immediate and long-term requirements to take a selective approach in choosing AFSCs. General Pamerleau said, "It is necessary to ensure we have the right people at the right location and time to support the mission."
Stop-Loss will also "send a signal to employers that we're not calling guardsmen and reservists while letting active-duty people go," said Maj. Gen. Paul Weaver Jr., Air National Guard director. The general said it was important to point out to employers and the public the "total force" aspect of today's call up.
Otherwise, personnel officials said, most other administrative functions will be unaffected by Stop-Loss, which will also have no effect on military retirees.

The idea that America (or any country) values individuality as the highest ideal is a myth. Perhaps in simpler times it was true, but no modern industrial society can really afford a population of unpredictables. This is not surprising - the long history of our cult's persecution by the Conspiracy goes back for generations untold, and indeed there are signs of their hoary repression of prehuman SubGenii dating from before "man's" appearance on Earth. All of civilization's painful and misguided climb up from the primeval slime, and its subsequent loss of Slack and of any class at all, has been indelibly marked, nay, entirely motivated, by the aeons-bridging conflict between the Conspiracy's mindlessly chickenshit Witless Principals and the Jehovah-spawned, grandiose depravity of the superior yet ethnically all-encompassing race of latent SubGeniuses. (You should know this - you were/will be there in the Beforelife!) The fact that only in recent years has "our kind" begun to recognize our own sovereignty demonstrates both how vicious have been Their efforts at further denying us Slack and yet how near is our race to TRIUMPH. All this is ULTIMATE PROOF that Jehovah 1 has not only promoted the SubGenius as His Special Tool, but has simultaneously pulled the strings which make Them endarken Themselves with their hereditary ignorancy and us with their cubistic witch-hunt superstitions. His "reason" for this two-faced obedience-school programming, this fissioning of history into binary "war equations," unfortunately, or, perhaps, thankfully, remains a total mystery. no slopeheads alone could build, the miracles of the Old Testament, all these and more are events so inextricably interwoven with the invisible background war between Jehovah and the Xists that all the "Ancient Astronaut" fossils in the world furnish only the barest of clues. (The movie rights ALONE to these gut-splitting tales of reincarnancient history are worth millions!) Yea, it has even been suggested that the Carpenter of Nazareth himself, God Jr., Jesus 'What, Me Worry?' Christ, was in actuality a 'space detective' of the Xists, walking the Earth in human form with the mission of extricating us from the Monster God's grip. The black shadow of the Conspiracy, unfortunately, has seen to it that even His teachings were diluted and distorted until human attempts to follow them were fully as misguided as the carving of the heads of Easter Island or the 'runways' of Nazca. And so the true destiny of the SubGenius has been kept secret from Man. For Jehovah 1 is to the Xists and Us what a hungry fisherman is to a prize fish and his favorite pet worm - the last in the can. How many million other races were used before us in these ghastly galactic water-sports?
JEHOVAH 1 MANIPULATES US FOR HIS OWN SINISTER ENDS.
