My dear DU friends of all stripes [View all]

I am afraid of what is happening. I think you are about to be asked to chose between the elected, constitutional, and often very wrong civilian leadership of this country and very powerful men that you were never given a chance to vote for but who are in positions of great power. Civilian control of the military is essential to the survival of our Republic. Don't be a sucker, don't get behind some powerful general who seems to be on your side at whatever given time. That is why we have elections. Our founders knew we should put those generals under the control of our Elected President (Art. 2, US Constitution). For all our problems THAT is what separates us from tyranny, civilian control of the most powerful military ever. Look within your hearts. Don't be on the wrong side of history, I beg you.

Think.
