General: Conservatives Are the 'Worst Thing That's Happened' to the U.S. Military

Check out the video posted at Think Progress. Americans are sick of the lies and the deaths. Imagine how Gen. Eaton must feel. Unlike the people who started this war, Gen. Eaton's kids are actually serving:
Retired Army Maj. Gen. Paul Eaton, who was in charge of training the Iraqi military from 2003 to 2004, appeared last night on HBO’s Bill Maher Show.

“We are in the midst of recovering right now from a constitutional crisis where you had the executive trump the other branches of government,” Eaton said. “Thank god” Congress changed hands in November, he said, giving us “a chance to unsort and figure out how to get out from under this.”

Eaton lamented that so many service members believe that conservatives “are good for the military.” “That is rarely the case. And we have got to get a message through to every soldier, every family member, every friend of soldier,” that the Bush administration and its allies in Congress have “absolutely been the worst thing that’s happened to the United States Army and the United States Marine Corps.”

This certainly doesn't jibe with Pamela Hess's description of the military establishment. Fascinating video here...She gets very emotional and choked up about what she witnessed.

The so-called conservatives are federal fiscal feed pigs, and that includes a lot in the military establshment--in fact, what does the federal government do besides act as a militaristic foreign policy arm of the national security state? People all want a share of that money--a trillion dollars a year devoted to militarism and its costs, and mounting.
