Sneak Peak: Danny’s Next Article

Hey FoH listeners,

I’ll be doing a weekly column every Tuesday from now on at Antiwar.com.

This week I’m taking a critical look at America’s generals and admirals and how they’ve let us all down for 17 years.

Where are the generals with the courage to stand up and “Call BS” on these forever wars?  Senior officers are supposed to advise presidents on prudent strategy and speak up if a mission is ill-advised or unachievable.  Instead, the “can-do” military culture has prevailed and general after general has saluted, promised success, and, of course, proceeded to under deliver.

Dissent is rare among senior military officers because the bureaucratic culture promotes “yes-men.”  That’s not what America needs.  I’d like to see one 4-star officer say “no – sir, this is not advisable or attainable.”  We need public dissent and generals willing to slam their stars on the table and threaten resignation. Our soldiers – deployed across the world in perpetual, fruitless wars – deserve at least that much.

Check it out this Tuesday,

Danny

The United States has become synonymous with empire and endless war, American troops sit in 70% of the world's countries, and yet, most Americans don't know that. The military is joined disproportionately by a 'warrior caste’ whom carry this enormous burden, making a less diverse force and ensuring most of society doesn't see their sacrifice. And American tax dollars, funding hundreds of billions in unnecessary spending on global hegemony, are robbed from the domestic needs of ordinary Americans. We aim to change that. Join Danny, Henri, and Keagan, three leftist combat veterans, as they discuss how to turn the tide against endless war and repair the damage America has caused abroad.
