Currently the count is 45.
He’s only keeping the ones that said they would order to shoot civilians.
there’s value in having a similar list for previous administrations to compare
Alarming. Have you sent this to anyone at Fox News? Somebody needs to be looking into this.
Yes the new litmus test for military officers is “would you shoot your own kind?” Gives you a good idea of what is coming.
Yep. Building his own Nazi army.
So are you saying none of them deserved it?
Good job, Nachum..
Something is afoot.
You don’t declare fealty to Obama and Jarrett, you get the boot.
There is precedent for the purge of the senior officers in the military, and a cautionary tale attached.
The Tonton Macoutes were a Haitian paramilitary force created in 1959 and reporting directly to François ‘Papa Doc’ Duvalier until his death in 1971. ‘Papa Doc’ came to power in 1957, as a democratically elected leader on a populist platform. He had previously served as Minister of Health. After an attempted coup against him in 1958, Duvalier rewrote the Haitian constitution, making himself a ‘President for Life’. Believing the Army was planning to overthrow him (as they had previous leaders), he disbanded all law enforcement agencies in Haiti, including the army. He executed all high-ranking Generals. To keep law enforcement completely loyal to his own ruling family, he created the Tonton Macoutes, who were granted automatic amnesty through his powers for any crime they committed.
The future is rooted in the past. The Current Occupant now squatting in the White Hut (or “Spite Hut”) is just taking a few precautionary moves.
How does this compare to previous presidents?
Who has the CWII ping list?
“So are you saying none of them deserved it?”
So are you saying they all did?
Isn't he the guy who allowed contractors to overcharge the Navy in exchange for hookers and Lady GaGa tickets?
Getting to be like the purge of non-muslims in Turkey.
It’d be interesting to know how this list stacks up against the records of other peacetime CinCs.
Any Muslims with access to nuclear weaponry?
This administration lies so much and so often I do not know what to believe. There is little left but suspect them of anything and everything.
You must look at what they do both on an individual and on a group level. Combine these firings with the knowledge that the Army says that only 2 brigades are prepared for war, our Air Force readiness is at a historic low, the missions of our special operations forces have tripled along with an astronomical increase in casualties.
I could go on, but this list is only one part of a larger story.
