John L. Perry goes all "Seven Days In May" on us over at Newsmax:
Yes, Mr. Perry, I'm going to dismiss it as unrealistic. In fact, I'm going to call it what it is: defamatory to the US Military, silly, perhaps even insane.
Perry coyly writes that, "Describing what may be afoot is not to advocate it." Yeah, right. He then goes on to list a whole series of political issues and casts them as such serious dangers to the survival of the US that military intervention is conceivable to our top officers, and bizarrely fantasizes about a military regime that would get the country back on track.
(hmmm, I think Newsmax has pulled this on me in mid-post. I'll look for it elsewhere. Ok, it was copied here)
The stupid, or insane, just gets worse:
Military intervention is what Obama's exponentially accelerating agenda for fundamental change toward a Marxist state is inviting upon America. A coup is not an ideal option, but Obama's radical ideal is not acceptable or reversible.
Unthinkable? Then think up an alternative, non-violent solution to the Obama problem. Just don't shrug and say, We can always worry about that later.
The alternatives are called town halls, peaceful protests, and elections, and yes, they still work. And it's not as if our top commanders don't have their own political channels in Congress that they can and will use to express any concerns long before they would even think about something as horrific as a coup. Good grief.
Stuff like this just pisses me off. I'm as unhappy with the Obama agenda and where we are headed as the next conservative/libertarian, but imagining that there is even a hint of a military coup being contemplated is disgraceful, and an insult to our top military leaders. I suspect someone at Newsmax has recognized that and an apology will be forthcoming.
