Your retirement-pension-funding taxpayer dollars at work.

But not to worry: I’m sure that there could never be a Yugoslavia-style dissolution of the former United States of America pursuant to a globalist agenda.

Scoffers would be well-advised to read this book by McChrystal to understand the machine that this or another G.O. will have at his disposal.

You don’t have enough ammo.

Really.

  1. Agree with Herschel’s sentiments 1,000%. Took a lot of flak “back in the day” when I dared to share I was not a fan or Petraeus or McChrystal, wonderboys of COIN and darling of the stenography class and remember when the Left dared to call Petraeus, “Betray-us”. How prescient.

      It’s (to me) fascinating to see how ‘the Left’ & ‘the Right’ have changed positions & now largely sound/behave like the other formerly did. But then such was predicted, wasn’t it.

    The Judas Group; selling their souls for the 20 pieces of silver. Petraeus has always seemed slimey somehow. McChrystal showed his colors when he thought he could be one of the boys in front of a Rolling Stone magazine faux reporter. How do they sleep at night?

      “How do they sleep at night?”

      On top of piles of cash, and with the best ass money can buy, while dreaming about how soon they’ll become real-life medieval dukes.

  3. Don’t have faith in politicians or generals….only in like minded citizens who believe in freedom and liberty.

  4. these GWOT Generals will be exactly as effective fighting us as they were fighting “terrorists”…whose numbers they have (so far) managed to increase by a factor of 100x

  5. I confess to giving Betrayus a pass when I thought he was still one of ours. I even gave him a pass for cheating on his wife and divulging secrets to a mistress. I did so as a matter of necessity, because we already have enough enemies, and thought he was a principled man who just let it go too far. I now see the complete error in my mindset, as well as my mental naïveté and laziness. It won’t happen again. I now see a cowardly cheater, who sold out not just his country, but the dear woman he should have cherished. Not only did Petraeus betray his wife, but my faith in the system et al. Character is doing what’s right when no one is looking, and David fucking failed, miserably. In light of two Generals recommending gun control hours before the worst firearms related massacre in U.S. History, I am highly suspicious. As I’ve seen posted before, you don’t have enough ammo, and tempus fugit

  6. During my 20 years military career, I saw very few General Officers that were not more politician than soldier. These officers , like the ones in the article, were more concerned with their advancement than with the safety and welfare of those they commanded.
    With REAL officers being removed from the services, we see more of those willing to follow the PARTY line. Maybe less for ideology reason than for personal advancement and power.

      “During my 20 years……more politician than soldier.”

    But…but they took an oath.

    They will all lick the hand that feeds them.

    • Honestly I’m always amazed at the people who seem to think that oath or the Constitution are any sort of safeguard. Yes they take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, and “defending the Constitution” will mean exactly what their commanders say it means.

  8. I told you and I told you. It’s them damnable, meddling Little Rumplestiltskins.

  9. Traitors, all.

    And what do traitors deserve, boys and girls?

      Given that their treason has been, to date, largely successful, probably a much more pleasant and profitable outcome than we might otherwise wish.

  10. https://www.scribd.com/mobile/doc/315383795/PERUTA-V-CTY-OF-SAN-DIEGO-Appeal-from-the-United-States-District-Court-for-the-Eastern-District-of-California-Morrison-C-England-Chief-District

    “The en banc court affirmed the district courts’ judgments and held that there is no Second Amendment right for members of the general public to carry concealed firearms in public.
    ….
    The en banc court held that the history relevant to both the Second Amendment and its incorporation by the Fourteenth Amendment lead to the same conclusion: The right of a member of the general public to carry a concealed firearm in public is not, and never has been, protected by the Second Amendment. Therefore, because the Second Amendment does not protect in any degree the right to carry concealed firearms in public, any prohibition or restriction a state may choose to impose on concealed carry — including a requirement of “good cause,” however defined — is necessarily allowed by the Amendment. The en banc court stated that there may or may not be a Second Amendment right for a member of the general public to carry a firearm openly in public, but the Supreme Court has not answered that question.”

    They fit right in with all the other deviants in this regime.

    Fifty years from now, if any school kids still knows how to read they’ll read about Petraeus and McCrystal like we read about Himmler and Goebbels.

  13. I wish it weren’t true but our version of the Katyn forest has been in motion for a while now. Their is a reason places like Venezuela are run by ex generals with lots of loyal guns, when legitimacy is lost, the guard dogs realize they can have all the steaks in the fridge. We are just about there if it hasn’t arrived already.

  14. Anyone remember that little exercise called Jade Helm? Recall that it was supposed to be training to fight overseas but specified TX as an enemy state? Could this be the actual Jade Helm?

    We are so close to it…any time prior to the election could signal the release. The pressure suddenly rushing into the low. The players are taking their place. The lines are forming.

    Look for more “events” like Orlando on a much higher frequency as we move toward November. and then it will happen. Someone will retaliate on the Muslims or BLM or La Raza and the curtain will rise.

  16. “You don’t have enough ammo.” I question the premise, at least for gun confiscation.

    Given that any gun grab will not be wholesale, but a calculated drive. In the early go the regime will use a combination of carrot and stick. The carrot is weapon turn in efforts, the stick being made examples of a few publicaly in the courts and press. Then they will tighten the screws using SWAT teams to collect the weapons from the holdouts. Such raids will be calculated to minimize visibility to the public and prevent wholesale revolt.

    Now against a 6-8 man SWAT team how many rounds do you think the average gun owner can get off before they are assuming room temp? A 100 max in my view and probably just what is in their clip more likely. Given the scenario the amount of ammo is not the issue generally.

    The real issue is how many fingers are on triggers? If in a given gun raid one or two officers lose their lives how long is it before a high percentage of LEO teams are incapable or unwilling of executing the raids. Yet the number of the general population lost are 1-2% of all the gun owners.

    Only in a Yugoslavian scenario does quantity matter.

  17. Uh, when I was involved with Security in the Army, even a HINT of adultery would get your security clearance rescinded. I did it often. Any sexual peccadilloes were prima facie that you were either vulnerable to, or already engaged in, enemy influence and black mail. In case after case example, it has been shown that such incidents are ALWAYS either precursors or blatant evidence of such activity. That, and money. The two oldest methods in the book. In Security, your Sun Tzu is always needed.

    Obvious correction to be made is that there should be no form of retirement benefits paid to military members except for those wounded “in combat”. They are responsible for their own retirements as should everybody else.

    Gotta win a war first though.🙂

  19. Petraeus could not be reached for comment. He was busy helping at the Bilderberg conference in Dresden, Germany. Make sure he is on your list.

  20. Operation sex under a desk. He knows lots of people, and he tells good stories. … He was the head of the secret police agency, of course he is a smiling, likable, easygoing monster. At least he wasn’t competent, like Dulles. Government is by monsters, for monsters. Vote and you can be a junior monster, too.

  21. I got a chuckle from that picture of McChrystal standing behind the Hildabeast at the podium. It looks like he is taking a sideways glance at her ass and thinking “would I or wouldn’t I?

  22. Cassandra (of Troy)

    One highly amusing thing about this effort will be how all the Consurrrrvuhtive® commentators who’ve been deifying both LE/the military for years will handle this, uh, VERY ‘inconvenient’ development, Trump’s reaction’ll also be interesting. Would it surprise anyone here/similar sites to see it 1) ignored entirely, or 2) ‘explained’ away w/ a counter-attack on whomever has a problem w/ this &/or otherwise objects?

    Stay tuned, observe carefully, & take notes, this is going to be BIG.

  23. With snakes, remove the head and the body dies.

  24. Last week I commented how horrifically bad our General staff has led the military since ww2. Gee, they won Granada and Panama. But they have lost every thing else. Korea (they have the bomb now), Vietnam, Iraq (26 years and counting we’ve been there), Afghanistan (15 years and counting). They invaded Iraq after Saudi Arabia attacked us on 911. Like France in ’40, I fear our military incompetence may end this country and it’s constitution.
    The shooter in Orlando was quoted by the victims as saying we have to stop bombing ISIS in Syria. Last week, when I predicted a ramadan rampage, I said that Putin was the key. The Russians are stacking up 50 ISIS bodies a day in Syria and the Musloid terrorists have figured out they have to change battlefields. Gay bars in Orlando are much easier pickings than the Russian Spetsnaz. I figured this out and I never served a day in the military. I believe we need to remove our entire General staff, all of them.

  26. While I certainly agree with the general sentiments here about both gentlemen, neither are stupid. Petraeus didn’t execute COIN in a vacuum, but hamstrung by politics, and by proxy international considerations. Read them, they are far from morons. I don’t deify either, nor consider them anything but traitors. However, I don’t want either on the other side of the table. Morals in no way correlates with intelligence.
