The kind of mindset (via Drudge) I never want to see from anyone even remotely tied to our nation’s military:
“Imagine Tea Party extremists seizing control of a South Carolina town and the Army being sent in to crush the rebellion. This farcical vision is now part of the discussion in professional military circles.”
Yeah, it’s just a retired Colonel and some no-good civilian “Civil War expert,” but the article was published in what was termed a “respected” military journal.
Also, there was a stir twenty years ago about a military coup article, but at least it contained a disclaimer that the scenario was “purely a literary device intended to dramatize my concern over certain contemporary developments affecting the armed forces, and is emphatically not a prediction.”
No disclaimer this time.
People who like to play expert with respect to things about which they really have no expertise nor understanding whatsoever . . . well. Hopefully their foolish words are meaningless.
I, for one, know no military members willing to engage in this type of operation.
