I'm truly shocked he never actually mentioned the fact that it wasn't over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor.

Yet the people most proudly and fervently supportive of Trump and his merry band of assholes, proclaim to love the troops more than the Democrats do.

Yet, time after time after time, they are the ones who sh*t on "the troops" more than anyone.

If anyone still buys this sh*t, f*ck you.

In the National Guard, and even then, they were REMF Quartermasters. Yes, there were some vocal supporters in the ranks, but officers...not so much. And none of them wanted to issue commands to move against civilians and US citizens in support of his attempted coup.

Well, they were willing to support it until they discovered Democrats had found a single vertebrae.
Then they threw a temper tantrum.  Then had to be shamed into being an appearance of an adult.

I'm only familiar off the top of my head with the bombing attempt that led to Rommel choosing the cyanide option. Now I'm curious to learn about the other two attempts.

I don't believe the other plots ever got as close. But there were many.

Trump was always the horror show his detractors claimed he was in real time. Worse than that, really, in most cases.

Every time someone supported him, I kept thinking "this guy? really?", and I was right to do so. His supporters were (and remain) some sick farks, and if you were (or still are) a supporter of Donald Trump, I don't know what else to say to you, you sick fark.

I'm not sure how much of this was/is political posturing.

Milley's account seems to be mostly truthful, but I'll never believe the claims about Pompeo's heel turn. You don't go out in public and encourage the guy who is about to commit to a coup and then get to claim, "oh no it was all an act" afterwards.

You just don't.

Eventually, Pelosi, in her frustration, stood and pointed at the President.
"All roads with you lead to Putin," she said. "You gave Russia Ukraine and Syria."
"You're just a politician, a third-rate politician!" Trump shot back.

Was Rommel one of them?  I knew he was not one with the fascist cause and was very popular with the people.  I know he was implicated with a plot to assassinate Hitler, but I was of the opinion is that he could have overthrown the fascist regime on his popularity alone.

"Why can't you be more like Nazis?!" -actual thing Donald Trump asked of the American military

IDK about the National Guard, but the Navy reserve is filled with Klan members who will support the KKK (and Russia) over the Navy command or the best interests of America.
The DEA has had drug enforcement operations leaked by Navy klan members (still) in the highest levels of the NCCC.

2022-08-08 1:44:08 PM  
They also, ya know, lost.

And were on the side of horrific, monstrous acts of unparalleled barbarity. Of course, that's a selling point for so-called "conservatives".

Anyway, I don't really care that Milley wants to repair his reputation. He didn't say shiat at the time, so saying it after the fact is meaningless. Just trying to get back on the hobknobbing with rich folks invitation list. Fark him.

FTA: just as their endless policy battles were not only about clashing views on whether to withdraw from Afghanistan or how to combat the nuclear threat posed by North Korea and Iran. The divide was also a matter of values, of how they viewed the United States itself

No, that's not quite it. trump, like the majority of idiots that support him and the GOP, have a nebulous grasp of history and like the Onion headline about the Defending the Constitution as they Believe it, have a very concrete idea of what happened in the past. Sadly, they are almost always wrong, and in the best of times might have one small portion of history correct but be ignorant of, or wrong about, other factors in it. trump, and the farking morons that support him are the type that believe things that sound true because they have come to believe they are true. 'We'd all be speaking German right now if not for the US' is a great example of this stupidity.

trump didn't have issues with his generals over clashing views on Afghanistan or threats posed by N Korea. They may have had issues about values, if trump lacking any values is a factor, but mostly it was an ignorant buffoon who has a 3rd grade knowledge (at best) of history trying to engage much, much smarter people who know a lot more about this shiat.

Time traveler goes back to the 1920s to assassinate Hitler.

And succeeds.

He returns to his own time and finds swastikas everywhere.

His lab partner asks him, "Hitler? Who the hell was Hitler? It was the Strasser brothers that you were supposed to kill."
