    I think we all know the answer to that.
    Who were they? If they were active duty military personnel and they spoke out against the President or U.S. policy, they should have been disciplined. Understand this, folks. The military is not a democracy. Nor is it part of the political world. If you want a military that is actively involved in politics, I'd suggest North Korea or Syria or Egypt or any of a host of South and Central American nations.

My commander in Chief was Richard Nixon when I was in the service, and although I loathed the man I would never, ever have allowed myself to become involved in a public political demonstration or expression of sentiments.
    My point is that it should be allowed. The people in the military have opinions and should be free to express them.

    If this guys gets drumbed about, he needs to find a cracker jack lawyer and sue the living **** out of the government.
    Lots of luck with that lawsuit.

    And I respectfully suggest that no military could possible function if that was the case. Military people have every right to privately express their opinions. They do not have a right to publicy do so.

    you accused him of mutiny...



    Article 94óMutiny and sedition


    Mutiny is punishable by death.


    My question was apt, not loaded at all, perhaps you should choose words in the future that you aren't ignorant of the definition.
