Obama building 'compliant officer class' Army intel official: Increasingly, 'to make
wnd ^ | 11/13/13 | F. Michael Maloof

Posted on 11/13/2013 9:05:12 AM PST by Nachum

WASHINGTON – The extraordinarily large number of senior military officials being relieved of duty during the Obama administration – nine generals and flag officers this year alone and close to 200 senior officers over the last five years – is part of the creation of a “compliant officer class,” according to a U.S. Army intelligence official.

Since WND’s ongoing coverage of what some top generals are openly calling a “purge” of senior military officers who run afoul of Obama or his agenda, some military personnel have been speaking out.

According to a veteran Army intelligence official who spoke to WND on condition of anonymity, there is within the armed forces a major concern that a “compliant officer class” is being created by the Obama administration. So much so, he said, that it’s becoming harder and harder to find “senior officers with a pair of balls in there [the military] now that would say no to anything.”

It may become necessary for the military to retaliate at some time in the future to make liberals a bit more compliant.

And - given the attitude of the military towards the dork and his uneducated lib arts minions and their Obamafones...this may not be too far out of line.

The military doesn’t need officers with balls. That’s the job of the rest of the soldiers. Soldiers in this case meaning all the services. I refuse to call them Warfighters because it is a politically correct appeasement to word-Nazis.

You have a gross misconception of the military.

Perhaps you mean ‘Servicemen and Servicewomen’?

Soldiers are Army.
Marines are not soldiers.
Airmen are not soldiers.
Sailors are not soldiers.
Coastguardsmen are not soldiers.

And for what it is worth, the Air Force Coast Guard and Navy are not military.

Don't forget his purge of the Secret Service, using the ever so popular "sex scandal" as an excuse (as if a 'scandal' ever met with any accountability in THIS administration!). Now the SS is a congregation of brothas (and shape shifters), more like the Nation of Islam protecting our pResident.

America's last hope are the SEALs, but the good ones have been hand selected for helicopter rides that don't end well. And God Bless Chris Kyle, too.

Not in this context....particularly when it comes down to enforcement of officers’ illegal commands. We’ve all seen what happens with the “I was only following orders” crowd.

I think I know the military well enough. I did my time.

If I were in the military today and ordered to fire on my American countrymen while on the American homeland, I’d be compelled to fire on the officer who issued that illegal order. Oath Keepers are good.

Anyone who picks up a rifle and stands to post is a soldier, regardless of the branch of military they serve under. FWIW, Marines ARE often referred to as soldiers.

In WWII, about 27,000 airmen were KIA, 17,000 marines and about 34,000 sailors were killed. How is that again what you said?

He wants officers who will obey an illegal order. Can you say fire on American citizens if need be? Conspiracy theory you say, then why do this when all the officers he has removed would follow their oaths to obey legal orders?

The question is will the troops follow the commands of their officers? Will they obey an illegal order?

Almost all coups are organized by field grade officers or below. There is a reason for that but it is very hard to organize.

Coast Guard, Navy and Marines are naval services.

The Air Force isn’t military, it is an air service.

The Army is a military service.

All can kill the enemy and all of them can die bravely if necessary.

The Merchant Marine are civilians.

The merchant marine was active ... from the Confederate commerce raiders of the American Civil War, to the assaults on Allied commerce in the First and in the Second World Wars. 3.1 million tons of merchant ships were lost in World War II. Mariners died at a rate of 1 in 24, which was the highest rate of casualties of any service. All told, 733 American cargo ships were lost and 8,651 of the 215,000 who served perished in troubled waters and off enemy shores.

But they are not soldiers.

I'm not sure how you define the word military, but the dictionary states:

“of or relating to soldiers or the armed forces (such as the army, navy, marines, and air force”

The Navy is governed under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, is it not?

Finally, the Federal Government disagrees with you:

“The U.S. Military consists of five active-duty Services and their respective Guard and Reserve units. All branches are equal parts of the United States Uniformed Services, headed by the president as commander in chief. The Army, Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force fall under the jurisdiction of the Department of Defense (DoD). The Coast Guard reports to the Department of Homeland Security during peacetime and to the DoD (by way of the Navy) during wartime.”

Beyond that, you'd need to seek out and neutralize those who gave the senior officers their illegal orders.

Neither I or the post I responded to said anything about ‘merchant marine’ that I can see. That is confusing the point. My numbers were for Marines, Navy and Army Air Corps (Air Force).

My point is if casualties in WWII make someone a soldier, the Merchies (with great affection) took the highest rate of casualties of any service in WWII.

Since Merchies are civilians, they are not soldiers, that provides a counter example that refutes your assertion that casualties make soldiers.

A specious claim that I asserted such. The poster I replied to insinuated Navy and Air Force personnel weren’t soldiers. I merely showed the combat death among those three branches of ‘soldiers’. Your segue save into merchant marines still is beside the point.

Obama wants a military that will fire upon its own People, and who do not take allegiance to the Constitution seriously.

Hitler did the same thing to the Prussian dominated military, before making the German Armed forces into his personal fascist tool.

Obama passes every test from history established for fascism:
