    True. If they recognize that, then they will 'not obey orders' out of good conscience and they will do what's best for the country.

    And? Where has anyone said otherwise? However, Commander Bonespurs Trump thinks he knows more than his generals.
    Which means he has no authority. He's literally, a civilian.

    No general has authority over POTUS.

    Where the **** did he or anyone else claim he has authority over Trump? Seems you are trying to debate an argument no one has made.

    Commander ChickenSpurs, who once spouted: "I know more about ISIS than the generals do. Believe me." is now at war with the generals.

    And with government workers. And with Robert Mueller. And with the Fed Chairman. And with the Media. And with .....

    Another name for that is "treason" and it isn't how our system is supposed to work.

    It's breathtaking to watch you people bitch about President Trump, then suggest the generals stage a coup.

    And once a general, always a general, unless demoted.

    Even after retirement (he was specifically granted full pension by Obama). But acknowledging that would mean he was wrong, and we know that Hell will freeze over before that happens.

    Heh, good imagination but of course since the generals DO know much much more about our national security, of course I'd hope they'd do the moral and patriotic thing and ignore a delusional narcissists' orders if they were not in the best interests of our nation.

    Treason isn't patriotic. You're posting crazy talk.

    All military retirees get their pension when they retire. Obama didn't grant McChrystal some special authority.
