Ol' Remus Has a Few Words For You
"Themilitary is probably the most traditional and honor-bound part of the government establishment, historically true to their calling and doggedly loyal to the country. In recent times it's been degraded by social experimenters, irrelevent futziness training, no-win political missions and cammy-pattern feminism. Set against this are credible stories of derailed promotions, rumors of blackmail at flag level and many lesser examples of hostility toward members whose loyalty to the country is unwavering. Instances of supplying intel and weapons to our putative enemies, and warrettes which end not in victory but in nation building videogames if not humiliating bugouts, make it difficult for conscientious members of the military to understand why they fight.
What appears to be happening is this. The collectivists captured the permanent government at least a couple of generations ago. Having recently annexed the Republican party they now see themselves as settling into perpetual power, and not without cause, the days of orderly change are behind us. But no regime can rule, as versus govern, without the explicit backing of the military. Mere acquiescence is not enough, there must be positive loyalty specific to the regime.
What we're seeing is an armed forces systematically conflating loyalty to the regime with loyalty to the country. Knowledgeable observers put the number of country-loyal versus regime-loyal at about sixty-forty, with the sixty per cent country-loyal concentrated in officers below flag rank and the senior enlisted. It's said the ratio was nearly the reverse as late as the year 2000 just as an internal counterrevolution, goosed by committed constitutionalists, began to take hold. The country-loyal appear to be going from success to success. Given our daily dose of up-to-the-nostrils disinformation and psyops, all this is little more than speculation."
