Is anyone noticing trunk firing half the pentagon?November 11, 2020 11:25 am at 11:25 am #1918918GadolhadorahParticipant
No, but I did notice TrumPP appointing some groupies who’ve appeared on Fox News to leadership posts. Several of the resignations had been announced PRIOR to the election by those who simply couldn’t stand the politicization of national security decisions. Fortunately, the uniformed senior leadership of the military have “contingency plans” should they try to do something really stupid.November 11, 2020 12:40 pm at 12:40 pm #1918964ujmParticipant
The military lawfully only responds to the orders and appointments of the Commander-In-Chief of the United States, Donald J. Trump.
There is no second way. Attempts otherwise result in court martial and imprisonment for treason.November 11, 2020 1:38 pm at 1:38 pm #1918973
May you be kind enough to tell me where you get all your information. Are you so high up in military or politics that you know that ‘attempts otherwise result in court martial and imprisonment for treason’? When I hear such things from anonymous bloggers I think twice before believing it.November 11, 2020 1:39 pm at 1:39 pm #1918976se2015Participant
Why bother with courts and prison. Bring back the guillotine.November 11, 2020 2:08 pm at 2:08 pm #1918986
I am not sure if you are joking but killing people because they listened to somebody else’s orders instead = of the president should not be a reason to put somebody is evil. I also don’t think that it is the yiddsha way to look at things. killing people because they did something wrong. Courts and prison might be bad but it is way better than death.November 11, 2020 2:39 pm at 2:39 pm #1918996GadolhadorahParticipant
Witheld: We have a long-tradition in this country of civilian leadership of the military. However, in multiple interviews with military leaders after retirement and in some cases prior to their confirmation, leaders from all branches including former members of the JCS have added the caveat of obeying LAWFUL orders from the commander in chief. Gen. Mattis made clear he would never allow the use of torture, even if ordered by Trump who advocated its use during the campaign. A retired branch chief who served on the JCS indicated he would disregard any order to use chemical weapons outlawed under treaties to which the U.S. was a signatory. I have no doubt the current leaders of our armed forces would obey a stupid directive to continue allowing Confederate names on military installations even as Congress appears likely to require the names be changed. However, an order to nuke downtown Tehran (which presumably has no strategic military value and result in millions of civilian casualties) would be summarily ignored by the generals with the nuclear codes and any attempt to pressure subordinates would trigger even Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment.November 11, 2020 4:26 pm at 4:26 pm #1919031
So you also support killing people?
