“Conservative” Erick Erickson suggested Thursday that folks at all levels of our military are so outraged that they won’t have the chance to die in Syria as a result of President Trump pulling out that they might stage a coup to keep the war going.
“If we lived in a lesser country than our great nation, today is the day we really would be talking about a military coup,” Erickson tweeted. “Soldiers down to the enlisted ranks are raising hell about the President’s Syria decision.”

The soldiers are going to mutiny because their commander in chief is recalling them from an illegal occupation of a sovereign nation continents away from the homeland they are supposed to protect ? Naah, down with the military Industrial complex and the endless wars for elites.

Having a Cousin in Afghanistan I can tell you that our troops are sick and tired of being over there fighting for absolutely nothing.. Let them fight for their own countries…

i find it very hard to believe a majority of our troops want us to stay in the middle east. That’s not at all the reaction I get from those who have been there — they all think it’s a clusterfuck and a massive waste of time for us
