I don’t know why this should shock us. We were kind of aware of this four years ago.

“Garrow replied: “The man who told me this is one of America’s foremost military heroes.””

If this is true, a real hero and patriot would come forward publicly. Ideally several would come forward publicly. The fact no high ranking general officer has come forward, despite all of the recent sackings suggests:

1) The assertion is not true or
2) We have no patriots in the general officer corps.

In older saner days this would be quite a scandal. Posse comitatus, and all that. I think the idea today is for the big complex Fedguv to be so confusing that nobody can follow it any more.

The Generals don’t fire on anyone, they merely order it.

It is the soldiers we have to worry about.

Will America’s LGBT military fire on us?

It is sobering to think #2 may indeed be possible, though it is the natural outcome of the politicization of the officer corps in general.

When you listen to democrats talk - the only ‘enemy’ they seem to have are conservative Americans. These are the folks giving fighter jets to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.... training Saudis in Texas... trying to take guns away from American citizens....

General “Weasley” Clark would give such orders.

Is his “type” of officer known for what he is?

My theory is that the reason they are buying up all the ammo is that they haven’t been successful getting our guns. Hence, they will have all the ammo, and we aren’t able to get any...

Hey, it’s just a theory I have, and I know it sounds a bit crazy, but in this day and age, ya just never know.

AND THAT IS THE *REAL* REASON THEY WANTED TO FAGIFY THE MILITARY

They wanted to demoralize anyone conservative from joining and make it so gay freindly the libtards would take over

And they sure as hell would fire on conservatives. Look at the german storm troopers- the SS was rumored to be chock full of fags

There's plenty of calibers they aren't buying, with plenty of guns chambered for them out there. I scored a few boxes of .300 Savage, .32-20, and .38 Super today.

Google the 29 Palms Questionnaire. This dates back to 1988 if I recall rightly. Marines stationed at the 29 Palms Marine base in California were asked this question back then. It created a firestorm of controversy. I thought at the time it was a harbinger of bad things to come. Looks like it may well be nigh.

Given Obama’s disdain for the US military, I doubt that many troops would fire on their fellow citizens even if ordered to do so. The military swears to uphold the Constitution not give blind allegiance Obama

They fight and die to bring freedom to people around the world. It seems odd they wouldn't fight to bring freedom back to us, especially since they have family members suffering under the new communist rule here, too.

“Look at the german storm troopers- the SS was rumored to be chock full of fags.”

You are confusing two different forces. The SA (the Storm Troopers), which were street thugs in brown shirts, were led by some notorious fruits, specifically Ernst Roehm. The SS, on the other hand, were cold blooded automatons whose loyalty was to Hitler. Hitler purged the former, and elevated the latter.

Democrats have been much more than simply political opponents for a long time, our side was mistaken to assume they really meant no harm and were good patriotic Americans we disagreed with.

Its only now that they feel embrazened by the fraud re-election that they are boldly willing to say “eliminate” GOP and conservatives.

I have two trains of thought on the story about the Generals and no named claimant. If this is the test and none are willing to say it, either they are smartly keeping their powder dry or no such test actually exists.

Something is definitely up, we shall eventually see what it is.

I went through MCAGCC in 1984 and took that survey. All of us looked at each other and said, wtf?

Bet the results are a little different today.

Prior to Germany's invasion of France there was serious misgivings in Germany's high command regarding the 'Austrian Corporal's pending plans. Serious enough that a coup was being discussed at the highest of levels (albeit a small circle). But the coup was ultimately nixed by Commander-in-Chief of Home Forces General Friedrich Fromm for, among other reasons, an inability to assure the participation by the infantry, whom he feared would remain loyal to Hitler.

I think here we would have the opposite case, the Generals might give the command, but would they be carried out by the men pulling the triggers?

I would be shocked if 0bama had 20% support amongst the troops.

Wait a cotton picking minute! The Constitution is something I took an oath to when I was inducted into the US Marine Corp. The military has no oath or allegiance to a particular president. Obama is unable to have a litmmus test - will fire on American Citizens as part of any oath or allegiance to him. This would be a high crime making him eligible for Impeachment. Not like he is not already eligible for impeachment. Opps I forgot we have to many ball less politicians in DC.

The problem is in our remote control Army and Air Force 15-20 guys on the joystick can wipe out 50-100K people per day.

The weapons loaders and maintenance personnel don’t know what the missions are. There are a lot fewer people that need to keep the secret.

-- They fight and die to bring freedom to people around the world. It seems odd they wouldn't fight to bring freedom back to us ... --

"Freedom" is relative, and what our politicians are doing on our nation-building excursions is exporting two-party politics with a public vote. This "system" is used because it mollifies the public into a sense of control (when it doesn't really have significant control), and providing justification to the elites for any action they decide is in their personal best interests.

Age-old tension between the powerful and the stupid. If the stupid people think they are free, then the stupid people won't rebel.

Anyway, forceful objection to the direction of the federal government will be cast as revolution, and the military will serve its masters, the politicians and generals. The military serves the elite, not the public, and certainly not the revolutionaries.

I see this all the time. However, I know that the stazis would just start rounding up the families and stuff.

One thing I never see pointed out is the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising outlasted the Polish army against the Germans. And it really shows how keeping guns close by can come in handy when an oppressive power comes into the neighborhood.
