  •  not going to happen (none)
    plenty (most)of my fellow military officers are staunch republicans to my disdain, but they arent going to support a military coup.
    •  Maybe. (4.00)
      Many Wehrmacht officers actively hated the Nazis and the campaigns they promulgated, but obeyed anyway out of a sense of duty.  And as someone pointed out above, a military coup could easily take place in the wake of another terrorist attack - the kind this administration doesn't seem to give a rat's ass about defending us against.
      •  the fact that officers from Hitlers (none)
        ..own inner circle twice tried to assassinate him might give us reason for hope.

        Hypocrisy in anything may deceive the cleverest and most penetrating man, but the least wide-awake of children recognizes it....

      •  With all due respect, baloney (none)
        As a military officer we are NOT to be compared to officers who fell in with the NAZI's!

        Besides the obvious over-the-topness of your comment, military officers swear an allegiance not simply to the country but also to the Constitution. Our "loyalty" is as much to that document as anything else and a large majority of military members would NOT go along with a military coup barring an actual complete breakdown of the civilian leadership in for example an invasion.
