Adm McRaven: Our Republic Is Under Attack From the President
Opinion | Our Republic Is Under Attack From the President

If President Trump doesn’t demonstrate the leadership that America needs, then it is time for a new person in the Oval Office.

By William H. McRaven
Admiral McRaven is a former commander of the United States Special Operations Command.

Oct. 17, 2019

But, if we don’t care about our values, if we don’t care about duty and honor, if we don’t help the weak and stand up against oppression and injustice — what will happen to the Kurds, the Iraqis, the Afghans, the Syrians, the Rohingyas, the South Sudanese and the millions of people under the boot of tyranny or left abandoned by their failing states?

If our promises are meaningless, how will our allies ever trust us? If we can’t have faith in our nation’s principles, why would the men and women of this nation join the military? And if they don’t join, who will protect us? If we are not the champions of the good and the right, then who will follow us? And if no one follows us — where will the world end up?

President Trump seems to believe that these qualities are unimportant or show weakness. He is wrong. These are the virtues that have sustained this nation for the past 243 years. If we hope to continue to lead the world and inspire a new generation of young men and women to our cause, then we must embrace these values now more than ever.

And if this president doesn’t understand their importance, if this president doesn’t demonstrate the leadership that America needs, both domestically and abroad, then it is time for a new person in the Oval Office — Republican, Democrat or independent — the sooner, the better. The fate of our Republic depends upon it.

Trump is a traitor and a criminal that needs to be removed and imprisoned for his treason against the United states! About time our military start standing up against him.

In August 2018, McRaven expressed support for former CIA Director John O. Brennan, whose security clearance had recently been revoked by the Trump Administration. He authored an open letter to President Donald Trump in The Washington Post entitled "Revoke my security clearance, too, Mr. President", in which he affirmed his regard for Brennan, his former colleague, and offered criticism of the decisions and personal behavior of President Trump. McRaven said of Brennan, "He is a man of unparalleled integrity, whose honesty and character have never been in question ... except by those who don't know him."

We need to start arresting those who advocate overturning a legitimate election.

The endless whining of the radical left is tiresome

McRaven sounds like an idiot to me.

He should take his retirement and go retire. What a moron.

McRaven better shut his pie hole, or the military will recall him from retirement and prosecute him for critical statements about the President which is a violation of the UCMJ.
Doubtful, I recall boot camp in 1967 where many of the boots were highly critical of the Vietnam War, even our community commander was critical of Johnson and The Congress for putting our servicemen into a civil war.

See: Battlefield:Vietnam | Timeline

Scroll down to see the KIA and Wounded Americans at the end of 1966.
