For an alleged intellectual (which he ain't!), Obama has been rather stupid in his treatment of and words about the military folks here (active and former -- and there are a lot of them).
Emerging tyrants throughout history have either had to coopt the military or, like Stalin and others, eliminate the upper ranks and replace the officer corps with loyalists.
The bad news is that the service academies have been gradually infested with leftists teaching PC, multi-culturalism, internationalist One World crap for several decades. It's anyone's guess how these officers still on active duty will respond.
And if such an event does take place, I suspect there will be a division along racial lines but no way to tell what the numbers would look like.
Like the author, I believe it would be a fairly civil affair but, again, now way to be certain. It COULD get ugly before it is resolved.
I HOPE that oath they took to defend the Constitution -- which I also took in 1962 -- prevails and we can get back to undoing the damage Obama has done and get on with striving to be the America the Founders envisioned.
I'd write more but am off to rent the remake of "Seven Days in May." The one with the HAPPY ending.
You mean like Jericho?
Trolling, trolling, over the bounding main.....
I want to see Jeffrey Immelt, along with Chris Matthews and Keith Olberman frog-marched out of the White House if this happens.
I wonder what percentage of the military really KNOWS what they are defending?
It won’t happen unless Obozo is so stupid as to declare martial law and suspend the Constitution.
The Officer Corps will not try to overthrow the civilian government. They may resign in large numbers and execute their rights and responsibilities as citizens, but while in uniform they will obey lawful orders issued by the President and his civilian leaders.
We didn’t do it when Carter was President and won’t do it now.
I’d write more but am off to rent the remake of “Seven Days in May.” The one with the HAPPY ending.
Points well made, and I remember the original “Seven Days in May” with Lancaster and Douglas. Know your horses — the “Preakness” (sp?)
Why do stores continually run out of ammunition?
I have no doubt they would respond in a “good” way. O is not well liked.
Awesome and courageous perspective.
Our soldiers and military and getting “punked’ in Afghanistan. You cannot have a Islamo in the white hut fighting a war against Islamic enemies in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The white hut is filled with Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood moles (FACT). Some were exposed before the election. I woul dbet that intel is being leaked by them back to Al Qeada and the Taliban to kill our soldiers. The rules of engagement (ROE) is killing our soldiers.
In BlackHawk Down - the Army had begged for M1 tanks and M2 Bradleys as back up. Clinton vetoed it becaus ethe Cong Black Caucus said no tanks against Africans. End result is our guys had no back up. Les Aspin resigned over it.
Someone does not work for us - he works for those he bows to. Those he bows to fund the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), CAIR and other Islamic groups.
MB’s job is to build mosques in the West and expand Islam into the West.
Bring our troops home - now.
I suspect that a large number of them will do what their officers tell them and few of them realize just how bad the zero really is. After all, how much did you pay attention to politics when you were 20 years old?
Another conservative fantasy makes the rounds.
Put this one up with:
1. The coming Civil War.
2. The police confiscating everybody’s guns.
4. Obama not giving up the office of presidency.
5. United Nations forces patrolling America.
Yeah. Keep getting punked in Afghanistan by the stooge employed by the Saudis.
That would be fun to watch. And as a side benefit, GE's stock price would double overnight.
Correct, and then all bets are off. Things will get ugly, very ugly.
