    So much for our ‘great military leaders’ staying neutral. Mattis trashes him at some banquet, and the navy puke is the one who ran the Bin Laden op. Let me tell you exactly what they are......... low-life scumbags who hate that we’re getting out of forever wars!! *******s both!

    I’ll have links shortly, right now at iHop with grandson.

    I read the admiral's letter.

    I thought he was calling for a coup d'état.

    The general is a lousy comedian.

    He drew first blood. When you publicly trash someone after firing them, you should expect a little trash talk to come back your way.

    Neutral isn't required when your boss is an unprofessional POS.

    So they are military men who want to be in wars? Sounds logical to me.

    I remember when Col. Hackworth, someone who served honorably in the military, was trashed here for opposing the invasion of Iraq.

    Agree or not, they have earned the right to ***** and have their own opinion.

    Seeing as they’re both retired, their fortunes will be made in the MIC through gigs as ‘advisors’ and such.

    Don’t recall it or him. But that’s not surprising, my memory is getting horrible

    War is business. Trump is costing people a lot of money. They want to continue making that money on the blood of working class American boys. They need war. Look at who is war mongering. Then follow the money.

    A man's gotta eat. I wish them well. The only thing they have "done wrong" is taken shots at someone who is so thin skinned he can dish it out, but cannot take it.

    I really doubt Generals and Admirals want to make money off the death of their war fighters. You folks are pathetic, saying that about those men who served in the military just because they took some shots at your god.

    Be honest for a few seconds. The only bad thing Mattis ever did, was go to work for the president.

    If they're retired, they can express their opinions, so I might not agree with them, but I am fine with that.

    But be mindful, this anti-Trump commentary by military & government folks is all designed to soften-up the population for the real coup that is will be coming next year. It will ramp up quite a bit after the first of the year.

    The Dems know they can't win the Presidential Election. They don't plan to. They are counting on getting Trump out of office by force.

    I do know that I cringe when I hear a rich boy draft dodger say "My Generals." Yesterday I found out a Friend and co-worker died. A Special Forces Veteran of Viet Nam. It still bothers me about Trump. Always will.

    Lying swamp rats. The bin laden op rat is a flat liar, no one talks like that in his supposed story. Don't give a crap what your service record is, supporting Hillary cancels out all of that. Frankly, makes me question what went on behind the scenes with the bin laden op.

    President Eisenhower's admonishment, in his 1961 farewell address to the nation, to beware of both the military-industrial complex and the scientific-technological elite becomes more relevant with each passing day. o_O

    Those were the Bushovics - I didn't coin that term and that's where I get Trumshovics. Different president, same sad mentality. People who walk in lockstep, saying what they are told to say, and thinking what they are told to think. Anyone who disagreed with the invasion of Iraq were cowards, traitors, appeasers, etc. Called cowards by people who were sitting safe at their computers NOT going to war.

    When the president picked Mattis, people here loved him, and loved him being chosen. So he disagrees with the president (I sided with Trump), gets fired (and that is appropriate) and insulted by a guy who had bone spurs. Now he fires back, and the same people who praised his selection are trashing him.

    That's Trumshovism, and I suppose hypocrisy. People are so blinded by party politics, they can't see anything but their god, and cannot handle someone disagreeing with him.

    Submitting a NYT oped piece is pretty much relinquishing your American citizenship. Free association with traitors and domestic enemies. He has no integrity or trust to speak of after that.
