That CWO was out of line, especially if you were a subordinate or other subordinates were present. He was borderline on contempt of authority (or whatever the UCMJ phrase is). There is a very good reason why we keep the military on a short, tight leash in the hands of their civilian masters.
A quick review of world history informs us that when the military is openly contemptuous of the political leadership, the military becomes increasingly unreliable and a coup follows.
The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thatís what I intend to reverse.
