If appointed, the good general could now watch a 'man' who refuses to denounce people who slap around women who do wear a veil, or for that matter advocates slapping/assaulting/denigrating any woman.
The one good thing about this " Mad Dog, Generals, General" is maybe millions of people will wake up and realize that America has been covertly a military, totalitarian, state for a long time under Obama, Bush, Clinton and clear back to at least to L.B.J. (who murdered over 50,000 American soldiers in Vietnam and some estimated 2 million Vietnamese) a military dictatorship, murdering untold thousands of innocent people for bogus reasons, around the world in order to protect it's world wide vested interests of the plutocratic. economic, elite.
Now with fascists like Trump and terrorists ( " ITS FUN TO SHOOT PEOPLE) like " Mad Dog, General James, AT LEAST THE US TERRORISM AND FASCISM WILL BE MORE EXPOSED!
“After destroying North Korea’s 78 cities and thousands of her villages, and killing countless numbers of her civilians, [General] LeMay remarked, “Over a period of three years or so we killed off – what – twenty percent of the population.” It is now believed that the population north of the imposed 38th Parallel lost nearly a third its population of 8 – 9 million people during the 37-month long “hot” war, 1950 – 1953, perhaps an unprecedented percentage of mortality suffered by one nation due to the belligerance of another.”2
This way back to the Korean war. Lemay liked killing people too.
Thanks for the history lesson. Korea was a long time ago and was never declared a war by Congress, but instead called euphemistically..." A POLICE ACTION" in order to circumvent congressional approval.
Way before my time, but I have never read that 8-9 million people were murdered in Korea during the " police action" from 1950/1953.
This is a gentleman who obviously snored through the courses on cultural sensitivity at the War College. One of the reasons we are still struggling in the Middle East is that arrogance, the conviction that American values are the only ones worth having, and that if others don't agree we are entitled to punch, stab, shoot, bomb, kick, mutilate, torture, douse with chemicals, etc them into submission. How very enlightened.
Yes, it appeared on the very independent source Russia Today, in an interview with a guy who has worked for Putin. CD beware.
Yet another bottom-dweller being brought up to lead young men and women to their deaths and destruction along with making them merciless mercenaries killing the "other." DJT's choices demonstrate his infatuation with an "imperial" presidency...this "emperor" stands above the fray while passing on orders to ransack, pillage, and torture all who may thwart his edicts.
Will the horror of DJT never end?
What I really admire about progressive thinking is that nothing really ever changes. The election of Trump? What's the big deal? Restoring torture program? Same old same old. Nothing is ever news to a progressive. The really good thing is that is now more open! Just like Sarandon said.
In general I object to former career military officers holding high civilian office, including President. There is a reason that the founders created a government with civilian control of the military, and it was to try and avoid the evolution of the government into a military junta. We've been lucky to this point that the former Generals we've had as President respected the civilian nature of the executive, but that might someday not be true, and we need to make sure it doesn't happen. This guy is a loose cannon who might not see anything wrong with the military taking over the government if the commanders don't like the way the Trump Presidency is going.
Thanks for your reply.
Yes, nasty, evil darkness may be required to wake more of the deluded masses! Some will even join La Causa, the "Rebel Alliance"!
Seems these Generals like soft targets. The last wars the US has been involved in were against much ,much less equipt adversaries. Grenada, Panama, Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan Libya etc.
Really effing smart right? Unfortunately, the small penis braggadocio does not realize that advertising torture ensures that Americans abroad, as well as all captured troops, will be dutifully tortured as well. Welcome to the madhouse.
What was he criticizing HRC for in the debates? Advertizing her plans against ISIS online. A favored Russian propaganda 'technique' --- blame the enemy for what you actually do yourself (also the greatest form of hypocrisy, like the 'Christian right' endorsing/voting Drumpf.
Yes we are a work. You are seeing the result of Pop Culture Reality TV mass brainwashing on the world's stage.
Well, our fearless new leader said mass shooters are geniuses, and that the plethora of guns has absolutely nothing to do with gun violence.
"They happen to be intelligent. And, you know, they can be sick as hell
and they’re geniuses in a certain way. They are going to be able to
break the system.”
Which is like saying an increase in aircraft fatalities has nothing to do with crowding the skies with aircraft, or traffic fatalities have nothing to do with the # of cars on the roadway. Pure genius.
Is this guy an avatat of "Jack D Ripper".?
North Korea was completely obliterated.
Another graduate of the Curtis LeMay school for loons.
Of those 6 you named we only won 1 and Iraq is/was probably better off under Sadam seeing as how their electrical grid was destroyed and hasn't been rebuilt and Isis is still in the country.
Oh, my god....this guys is crazier than bedbugs...and he is a monster! Trump is out of his mind...he has selected the craziest, most dangerous and most vicious people for his cabinet yet.
