Perry suggests the casus belli will be the Middle East, with generals deciding they can do a better job than civilians. Perry suggests that President Obama will be kept as a compliant figurehead, although that could only be accomplished by holding him and his family prisoner and threatening their lives. Adding to what I said six months ago,
- Republicans are bragging about efforts to promote mutiny in the military.
- Republicans see in the Honduran military coup a blueprint for the United States. (The coup in Honduras is usually described as "exactly how a functioning government should work.") Note that, Republicans believe that the military removing an elected president is not only acceptable but government at its finest.
- The military has been wargaming a US military coup since 1992.
- We should remember that radical Christians have infiltrated the US military.
- As have neo-Nazis.
I'm not saying it will happen. I am saying that anyone who believes a US military coup is impossible is a fool.
