“None of these generals is a Dwight Eisenhower, all are dedicated to the Trump agenda—ramping up global climate chaos, sowing race hate and violence, targeting refugees and immigrants fleeing from wars we supply arms to wage, rolling back civil rights, being cozy with the likes of autocrats Putin, Duterte, and yes, General al-Sisi, while scorning democratic humane clean energy leaders like Merkel.”
The authors analysis is very accurate - malleable lock-step generals have risen to the top, while those of wider experience and integrity - like General Eisenhower - have been cashiered-out and forced in to retirement- like Admiral William “Fox” Fallon, replaced by MIC sycophants and career Pentagon ass-kissers.
“The problem in defense is how far you can go without destroying from within what you are trying to defend from without.” - Dwight D. Eisenhower
Fallon said “the constant drumbeat of conflict” out of Washington about war with Iran was “not helpful and not useful - An attack on Iran will not happen on my watch.”
The path to overt fascism has its roots in for-profit war - “When Fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross” perhaps led by a general serving a pathological ignorant idiot rather than our civilian republic.
