Obama regime purges 5th senior military officer: Cmdr of CENTCOM James Mattis
Fellowship of the Minds ^ | March 5, 2013 | Dr. Eowyn

Last December, in my post, “Obama purges U.S. Command, Part 1,” I wrote:

Within two months after the Benghazi attack, four senior U.S. military officers were purged:

Ostensibly, Petraeus’ “retirement” and Allen’s suspended promotion are due to both men’s moral conduct. But surely we are not so naive as to think that Petraeus and Allen are the only U.S. military officers who’ve ever committed adultery or written flirtatious email. As for Ham’s “retirement” and Gaouette’s “temporary re-assignment” (reassignment to what?), there is not even a whisper that either man’s morals or personal conduct is at issue.

So what should we make of all this? Is it all just coincidence or something more sinister?

Ann Barnhardt, in her blog of Nov. 13, 2012, didn’t hesitate to call the purges, Obama’s “night of the long knives” — a reference to the last step in Hitler’s quest for total, dictatorial power. On June 30, 1934, the Fuhrer purged the German military of any factions that were in any way autonomous and not 100% loyal to him.

Now add to the above list of four, Marine Corps General James Mattis (above), who has served in the U.S. military for 40 years and is widely revered by rank-and-file Marines for his blunt talk and leadership.

Three weeks after the purge of Gen. Allen came news that four-star Gen. Mattis was told to vacate his office several months earlier than planned, in March 2013, that is, this month. On Dec. 6, 2012, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announced that Mattis would be replaced by Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, the vice chief of staff for the Army, subject of course to Senate confirmation.

My sentiments exactly.

You know, on one hand I would say that the country deserves whatever punishment it receives when God finally "balances the books," but the on the hand I fear for the future of siblings, children, friends and other loved ones.

I know that people are responsible for their own fate and have to make their own decisions about eternity, but seeing how my loved ones have been blinded by false teachers, Marxists and just plain ole evil people it angers me and causes me to feel a grief, day in and day out, that I know won't be lifted until I meet the Lord, whether that be through death or the meeting in the clouds.

Obama’s “night of the long knives” ...

Actually, no. The "Knight of the Long Knives" was to placate the military, by eliminating a bunch of rogues who wanted to take their place.

This is more akin to Stalin's purges of the military in 1938.

“Any American officer that didn’t resign their commission after it became obvious that Obama was circumventing the Constitution is a traitor.” - ID

No, we need good people to stick it out. We need them to stand firm when they are given illegal orders, but they can’t or shouldn’t resign in the face of a domestic threat to the constitution.

- Quite the contrary

I tried to send you a private post, however FR says I’m too new for this service.

I respectfully disagree. How long should they stick it out? I can understand if they stuck it out the first term, however after the re-election, the choice was obvious. The officers currently in the military either share Obama’s world-view or are cowards who are only sticking it out to secure their pensions.

Thank you for responding.

Very respectfully,
