“The military revolt against the Obama administration’s plan to launch a potentially disastrous attack on Syria is gathering pace, with both top brass and regular service members expressing their vehement opposition to the United States becoming entangled in the conflict.”
I have do doubt that these folks disagree with the impending war. And I will also credit this dissent (at least from the brass) with possibly influencing Obama to reconsider. But when these killer’s masters ultimately decide to go to war, then what? Will there be mass dissent and disobedience among the ranks?
“Our involvement in Syria is so dangerous on so many levels, and the 21st century American vet is more keen to this than anybody. It boggles my mind that we are being ignored,” adds former Cpl. Jack Mandaville, a Marine Corps infantry veteran with 3 deployments to Iraq.
It boggles my mind that anyone who has been conned into three, nearly identical actions is still not aware that the powers-that-be pay absolutely no attention to the grunts that do their killing. You’d think that would be obvious by now.
When the Great Leader orders “attack,” I’m betting every single one of these mercenaries will follow orders and carry out the action they were trained to do- kill people. These objections by troops on social media will become just as insignificant as the phony oaths they give upon enlisting. Their words never seem to be followed with action.
Once the carnage begins, I invite those less cynical than me to keep a look out for any more dissent. If you hear or read about any heroes who outright refuse to obey any orders to kill Syrians (whether directly or indirectly through support) and suffer the inevitable whipping from their slave master, please let me know. I promise, I will seek them out and personally apologize to every single one.
