What happens when you take bitterness, disappointment, excessive self-esteem, a blovating ego, and stir it up in a soup of Ivy League self-importance?
Looks like you get retired Lieutenant General Robert Gard who, it seems, is making a living being the “House General” for the hate-America-blame-America-first crowd.
The latest anti-American steamer coming out of the good general is to join in on the anti-AMB crowd, talking bad about his country and its military on
Here is a beaut from his addled mind,
"Any country that launched such a missile would run the risk of a retaliatory attack that would be tantamount to annihilation."
OK General, so what you are saying is that is that North Korean crackpot decides to launch 5 of his missiles at the West Coast for whatever reason; we can assume that 3 will malfunction and 2 will head to California unmolested. Instead of having a good chance to bring them down and prevent loss of US and Korean lives, it is better to allow a few million Californians to die and to follow up by killing millions of Koreans?

Vietnam Veterans of American Foundation as their “Senior Military Advisor”.
- Chilling with the guys at anti-Iraq
Veterans for Common Sense
Gee wiz General, next thing you know you will be hanging out with those classic hate-America Fifth Columnist retired Flags at the
You know General, if you invested half the time worrying about minimizing the deaths of American soldiers as you did about the deaths of non-combatants, I might have more respect for you. As it stands right now, you seem to get a high out of proving to everyone how CONCERNED, how CARING, how SELF-HATING you are. I am sure you feel quite happy being the pet war criminal at the parties you attend in LA, San Francisco, Boston, Cambridge, New York City, and The Hamptons. Just remember, deep down, behind your back; not only do they loath you, they have no respect for you because you not only turned your back on your fellow Soldiers, you stabbed them in the back.
Then again, being that you learned your trade on the knee of that
