Salon: It’s time for Americans to end their ritualistic fawning over veterans. When former members of the U.S. armed forces visit the White House to promote military coups, they prove that veterans do not automatically, uncritically warrant our praise.

In an era of perpetual war, this may appear blasphemous. America’s all-volunteer force has borne the burden of a militarized foreign policy in the wake of 9/11 that has sent more than two million servicemen and women overseas to keep our nation safe. These veterans have sacrificed immensely, some in heroic fashion. Incredibly brave men and women still populate our military ranks.

Yet in society’s haste to thank them for their service, veterans have become, in far too many ways, an inviolable sect beyond reproach. Any criticism risks bringing forth a slew of anti-patriotic opprobrium. Such blanket adulation must end. And this most chaotic of years demonstrates why.

In one of the more contentious political seasons in American history, few malefactors have exceeded the duplicity of retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who has called on President Trump to suspend the Constitution and declare martial law so military leaders can oversee a redo of the 2020 election. Never mind that Flynn, who pled guilty to misleading the FBI, once swore an oath to uphold that very Constitution.

Retired U.S. Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney has echoed Flynn’s sedition entreaties. The Vietnam War veteran also petitioned for martial law in the aftermath of a free and fair election, but then went further still, imploring Trump to cancel the Electoral College, suspend habeas corpus and arrest Democrats for treason.  Read more…

  1. Our military Personnel are the, ‘Sacrificial Lambs’ on the ‘Barbaric-Bloody Altar of Zionism’ on the World Stage! What the Demonic-Zionist Zealots have accomplished on ‘9/11/2001’ by placing ‘Controlled Demolition’ into the WTC. Towers #1,#2,#7 will go down in history as one of the Greatest Crimes ever against the American People, on our SOIL! It succeeded because there were those, within our, N.Y. City, State, and Federal Government agencies who either participated in the Crime or just turned the other way! It had to have Inside Job, accomplices! Our Enemies, Foreign and Domestic have dragged US in to the unending Wars of the Middle East, at the ‘COST of 2977’ Innocent Collateral Victims! Who cares? How many of those ‘Sacrificial Lambs’ were JEWS?? What the Zionist Zealot Devils will do to a Friend? That Our Government doesn’t Investigate ‘9/11’ with the same Zeal, Enthusiasm, Attention to Details as what they done with the; ‘Phone Calls to the Ukraine/Impeachment’ HOAX, is a CLEAR Indications that at many LEVELS within the US Congress/Government they are aware of who are the DEMONIC Perpetrators, of ‘9/11’ and many are within the layers of Our Government! INSIDE JOB!! Prove it otherwise?? Time to SERVE the Electorate, and not an ‘ALIEN Foreign Demonic Entity! Pray for America!!

  2. “…has sent more than two million servicemen and women overseas to keep our nation safe…”

    That´s incorrect, they was sent overseas to keep money flow forward to big companies. There never was any threat to the country

  3. “Thank you for your service” makes me want to puke. Who put the explosives in the WTC buildings on 911? It wasn’t the “high jackers” or the Afghans or the Iraqis or the Libyans or the Syrians or the Russians or the Chinese or Iran. The US and Israel are the axis of evil.
