Retired Marine Corps Gen. John Allen said that if Republican nominee Donald Trump becomes president and follows through on some of the things he’s said on the campaign trail, the U.S. could face a “civil military crisis, the like of which we’ve not seen in this country.”

"When we swear an oath to support and defend the Constitution, which is a document and a set of principles and it supports the rule of law, one of those is to ensure that we do not obey illegal orders," Allen told told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on "This Week."

1. Is it possible for the Democrats to put someone out there that DOESN'T have some type of scandal surrounding them. 2. All his talk about the deserts of Iraq/Afghanistan...Hillary, Obama, Bill Clinton, Kerry...nary a war hero amongst them. 3. Obama's VA is killing Vets, but let's not talk about that General. 4. Using the military to overthrow regimes that aren't willing to play ball with the obama, soros, UN, Agenda 21, etc etc etc 5. Trump, from what I've read, has rather significant support from the military if the polls are correct...of course, no one wants to talk about that. 6. Trump, if he's to be believed, isn't about the US being the worlds police unless it has a definitive US interest involved. A far cry from the clowns running stuff now. 7. Trump has stated that he wants to 'smartly' rebuild the military, trying to limit/eliminate all the fraud, waste and abuse...anyone that has watched AFN sees those commercials all day, every day

8. General Allen, ran out of the military in shame after all his scandalous BS was exposed.

"General" Allen, quacking about "the rule of law", after declaring allegiance to the Destroyer of American rule of law.

STFU, you POS, Allen.

A retired General, or a retarded one?

This guy should be immmediately put in jail for encouraging a coup. This is sedition, AND IT WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.

Retired Marine Corps Gen.

I wonder if it is just a coincidence that both the Dallas shooter and the Baton Rouge cop killer were both Marines.

If we carpet bombed ISIS we would be prosecuting war as it should be.

However, if we won’t do that then we contain them in their corner of their world. Keep them out of America and out of Europe.

Obama has been unlawful with the actions he’s taken on immigration. How come you haven’t spoken out against this, sport?

I have absolutely no respect for this traitorous clown.

IIRC, Gen Allen was carrying on with Jill Kelly(?) the “socialite” of CENTCOM, and was caught up in the Gen Petraus scandal. He was allowed to retire with no charges. He is obviously a blackmail target.
