 Retired generals warned us about Rumsfeld. Now they’re warning us about Trump.    The "retired" military officers and generals are not holding back on opinions.  Barry McCaffrey tweeted   that “it is apparent that he is for some unknown reason under the sway of (Russian President Vladimir) Putin.”    ( He = being Trump)   Retired Marine Gen. John Allen: 'There is blood on Trump's hands for abandoning our Kurdish allies'

Retired Gen. Barry McCaffrey tweeted Friday that he reached the conclusion about Trump because the president “is refusing to protect vital US interests from active Russian attacks.”

tRump Politicizes Military -

Message 2 of 2

When the Navy attempted to prosecute a Navy SEAL for murdering a POW, donny Bonespurs rode to the rescue by tweeting his support, saying "we train these men to be killers, then persecute them when they kill - not right", then tRump demanded the Chief Petty Officer be released and reinstated while his prosecutors be punished, which the Navy did.  The Chief is a highly decorated combat vet, and the evidence against him was almost entirely based on testamony of witnesses with no physical evidence.

 

Not the first time our gutless draft-dodger intervened to save a homicidal service member. He pardoned Army Lt Michael Behenna who murdered a naked, defenseless detainee in Iraq in 2007. He has been lacing his campaign events with praise for Special Forces members and called a Green Beret Major convicted of murdering a POW "a US military Hero" when he announced he will personally review the conviction.

 

All this makes OUR Troops look no better than ISIS, and the job of maintaining discipline becomes highly compromised. Navy officials report this breakdown of the "rules of warfare" is already happening among our special forces units.

 

Why would gutless donny want to diminish the ability of the Military chain of command to function and prevent War Crimes?

 

Could be he wants to replace duty to Nation with fealty to HIM as the one who will protect the homicidal acts of our Troops in exchange for them protecting HIM from Impeachment and removal.

 

GOPerLords tell us It's just another Quid Pro Quo donny has been doing his entire life and we should not be concerned. We need to be CONCERNED, both with tRump's attempt to place himself as the REAL leader of the individual GIs, and also with the endless wars we force these brave young men to fight against the most bloodthirsty enemies since the Bataan Death March.
