    Even to say it was a "weak military" completely fails to understand what happened. And I thought you were referring to PCness because you discussed sensitivity classes, then the fall of the roman empire.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    You ever read 1984? No government would ever admit it.

    I would have to say it is both "they have to walk on eggshells regarding religious minorities" and a little bit of the fact that the man was an commissioned officer. I think if he was a low ranking ranking enlisted man or even a mid ranking non commissioned officer or a low ranking commissioned officer he probably they probably wouldn't have thought twice to kick the man out or least watch the man like a hawk.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
