    I am noticing that every General who is capable, who is outspoken and conservative is being rifted out of the military. PC rules the military now and God help everyone that doesn’t follow the liberal mindset.

    After the Liberals are done, the US military will not be mentally or physically able to fight the Boy Scouts let alone a real army.
