the best ‘rule of engagement ‘ that I can think of is : Military - STOP giving your oath of allegiance and service to idiots civilians that are undeserving and unworthy of your sacred oath(s) - Start calling the shots ( literally ) Convene a renewed War Department that handles our military foreign affairs , not subservient to any clueless state department or feckless ‘chief executive ‘
Our enemies need to fear America if they choose to challenge or confront us . They need to feel the steel , not our pussy civ politicians brought to heel
Wrong and bad. The military must remain subordinate to the civilian Chief Executive and his civilian reports, under our Constitution. It's the only way to avoid the curse of Latin American juntaism and army meddling in politics as "guarantors of the constitution", which is common in Central and South America.
Don't do it. Bad idea, with 250 years of South American history to back up that assertion.
