    •  they're probably right (0+ / 0-)

      I'd expect the military to take their side if it ever became dissatisfied with the cozy relationship it already has with power.  I don't buy the military's apolitical "we follow orders" Boy Scout act for a minute: to me, they're conservatives until proven otherwise.

      Something's wrong when the bad guys are the utopian ones.

      •  thankfully, you're wrong. (0+ / 0-)

        the military takes its oaths 'all enemies, foreign or domestic'.  It comes up regularly (every few years) amongst soldiers.  And pretty much to a man, they state they'd NEVER support anyone who would take up arms against the duly elected government.

        and if you havent noticed inthe lats 5 years, the enlisted troops LOVE Obama.
