“What we have here is a failure to communicate” Verstehen Sie, Kapesh, Comprende? Richard Spencer (military) steps down, Donald Trump steps up, Eddie Gallagher is reinstated. Argument is should the president usurp the orders of the military, or should our servicemen be put on a higher pedestal. Forget the Geneva rules. Did the Germans obey them? Did the Japanese do likewise? Were there viet cong members ready to blow up US troops with or without rules? ISIS plays by their own rules so I have to go with our guys. I know tradition. I love tradition but if there was ever a time to break the rules, this might be it. end of comment.
