I hope Radm Collin Green (Senior Commander of SpecWarfare, the SEALs, based in Coronado) is feeling a kind of telepathic moral support throughout our island for the very public stand he and the Chief of Naval Operations are taking against the Twitter in Chief.

I am old enough to have been there when Vietnam era military Flag Rank acquiesced to the Nixon CIA demands for disastrous combat orders that foolishly cost American lives. And I knew mid-level unit commanding officers who tried and gave up careers in the fight against that kind of insanity. So I am thrilled and greatly encouraged by Admiral Green.

The “Moral Injury of War Crimes Pardons” is described in detail by a NY Times editorial this weekend. History tells how Hitler and the Nazi evils started with dominating the German High Command. The same sort of effort is showing signs of trying to creep in here and now. It is long past time for American Republicans to face facts, dump their criminal-in-charge, and participate in healing America.

The Republican excuse for not stepping up in the face of so much proof of unconstitutional behavior is that the Democrats will turn our government to Socialism/Communism. Please! A post Trump congress will be too busy restoring balance to the State Department and all the other agencies that have been eviscerated by the unbelievable narcissistic craziness of today’s Washington government.
