4. You said a mouthful...

 

It goes beyond institution. It's a national pastime. Our society glorifies Imperialism and its resulting conflict. The violent and power mad world of a General officer is indeed fraught with plenty of opportunities for abuse, plenty of power to cover them up. and a pretty reliable good-ole-boy system for perpetuating and minimizing these acts.

Obviously this creep needs to be imprisoned. But the first step to stopping this is a long hard look in the mirror.

As a vet who served his time I know some officers were good people, but I think many were just GOLD BRICKING TURDS. Plus they were to stupid to find a better job. I got out and spent 34 with University of California doing research for DOE.
