Skip to comments.The Origins of the American Military Coup of 2012
Posted on 08/22/2009 5:45:04 PM PDT by Godzilla
The letter that follows takes us on a darkly imagined excursion into the future. A military coup has taken place in the United States--the year is 2012--and General Thomas E. T. Brutus, Commander-in-Chief of the Unified Armed Forces of the United States, now occupies the White House as permanent Military Plenipotentiary. His position has been ratified by a national referendum, though scattered disorders still prevail and arrests for acts of sedition are underway. A senior retired officer of the Unified Armed Forces, known here simply as Prisoner 222305759, is one of those arrested, having been convicted by court-martial for opposing the coup. Prior to his execution, he is able to smuggle out of prison a letter to an old War College classmate discussing the "Origins of the American Military Coup of 2012." In it, he argues that the coup was the outgrowth of trends visible as far back as 1992. These trends were the massive diversion of military forces to civilian uses, the monolithic unification of the armed forces, and the insularity of the military community. His letter survives and is here presented verbatim.

Thats a lot of footnotes
The people are going to perform the coup in 2010 and render the 2012 one unnecessary.

Of course it is. Parameters is the journal of the Army War College, and is for serious academics as well as senior officers.
...I expect that this is unlikely now...the Army is too multicultural...let’s say serious Reconquista broke out and the Texas National Guard was called in...there’s a real chance that hispanic guardsmen would go over or go home.
1) How many illegal aliens in our military
2) How many females
3) How many gays
4) How many Christians have departed
It doesn’t look good.
As a Commissioned Officer you swear to Protect and Defend the Constitution of the United States. I would hope that any who “went over” would be hunted down and killed or tried and HANGED and those who Deserted would be hunted down, Court Marshaled and punished as Deserters should be!
If you wait until Nov 2010, ACORN will have made it impossible to do by ballot.
While I liked the piece generaly, it is dated. Perhaps an update is in order. Another letter back - perhaps filling in the gap from 1992 - 2009?
Gen Hague (sp?) almost pulled off a mil coup during Nixon’s term BTW.
...good points Donna!
Also, it’s worth remembering that after a while the Roman army became untrustworthy because it was no longer Roman...it was full of people from other tribes...the backbone of the US Army has always been the white working class...that has changed a lot since VietNam....lotta people from other tribes in there now.
Sorry, we disagree...the American people are going to override Obama, ACORN, and all their efforts. That tidal wave is rising now.
Second it, it is WE THE PEOPLE who are taking this country back. It has started to happen.
I am OLD but I will be proud to stand with you!
Depends on how you define "always." Some of the finest soldiers and officers in the United States Armed Forces over the last 50 years are other than white. The United States Armed Forces are color blind. The rest of the country could learn from them.
that is certainly my prayer.
I can't prove to you and FReepers reading this, but back in 1981 I told my wife, family, colleagues, and anyone who would listen that the Soviet Union would collapse, with the caveat that I probably wouldn't live to see it.
Actually, it wasn't all that difficult to predict, if you understand economics, sociology, etc.. Having said that, I believe anything can happen. Be it a military coup, the rise of a dictatorship in this great country, or the Lord returning.
All we can do in any of these situations is to be prepared. And I mean that in all of the possibilities stated.
No coup necessary; DumBO will install himself as the dictator if he has his way.
Next week, for a few minutes, will go to stand in front of my Rep’s office and do a silent protest of a few minutes against Obamacare. Was a bit under the weather today.:)=^..^=
