So would Obama. :amen:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

Why are so many generals getting the axe?

This is EXACTLY what Hitler, and every tyrant does, destroy the people who could stop you.  The big difference between Hitler and Obama in this case is Obama openly detests the military, and they know it, 13859 while Hitler knew he had to have them on his side, even the privates.

He doesn't need the military anymore. He has the DHS to enforce his rule

[[ Ever notice how no cabinet members in the Obama Administration are ever fired (the names Holder, Rice, Sibelius spring to mind), but in the last year nine senior generals have been fired? I wonder why that is? ]]

Hmmmm.....

Why doesn't someone just go to these ex-generals, and ask THEM why they believe they were canned?

Actually, I read that something like 197 high-level officers have gotten the boot.

If this continues, in a couple more years, there may be enough ex-military jettisoned by Obama to lead some kind of "alternative military", if the situation arose...
