Why the surprise? Most of them fought in wars based on false pretenses.

Any actual proof or evidence in that letter?

Online review of these FGOs and their profiles summarize that the majority of these folks are boomers from the Cold War era or more recent public grifters capitalizing on their former years of service.

Strip them of their pensions.

No sense paying people who don't love this country.

think their patriots,
in reality, just racists...

let me take a stab in the dark here...

Most live in the South or were from
the south? Just a bunch O'Good Ole Boys
being down home and (you know) racist as
---...

the Civil War never really ended in
this country. Thanks to the South holding
one of the world's oldest grudges...and
not acknowledging they were wrong.

Exactly most of them have been out of the service for decades. I'd love to see the average age and honestly I wonder if some of them didn't have someone else just sign their name to it...

They have no evidence the election was rigged, because all evidence says it was not.

What they have is a rwing political goal, nothing else. Not to mention that they are mostly all long retired lower level officers.

I loathe how the title of flag officer carries weight decades after their retirement. These folks have went decades without any sort of briefings or support from their former staff structure. They are civilians, and have been civilians collecting a government pension for decades.

No one is polling the former C-suit staff of Pfizer for comments on current pandemic issues.

Why did Trump let Joe Biden steal the election?

Why couldn't Trump protect the election?

Why isn't there any evidence that the election was stolen?

Anytime the highest ranking military officers don't agree with the pissants, the military haters come out like vampires after dark.

"highest ranking military officers"

Zero high ranking militaty officers signed the letter.

124 former military generals need to have their US military pensions cut off immediately.

#15 Nah, recall them to active duty and then para drop them into Iran.

124 out of how many? There are currently 653 active flag officers in the US military. I wonder how many former flag officers there actually are?

Most of the signers haven't been in the military in 15-20 years. The list includes felons, the dishonorably discharged, and other disgraced officers. Hardly anyone above a 1 or 2 star as well.

But it sounds like your support the Lie that there was widespread election fraud as well...that somehow no one can actually offer evidence of including Trump.

Confirmed by FOXNEWS. Sorry for your loss. But you must be used to it by now.

Apparently.

Being a Republican means never ever acknowledging that you were wrong.

"Strip them of their pensions. No sense paying people who don't love this country."

Was "love of country" a condition in their initial contract?

Consider this. When the next Republican president is elected, and it will happen soon enough, should he/she have the right to strip the pensions of those who he/she deems doesn't sufficiently love their country?

"Being a Republican means never ever acknowledging that you were wrong."

Being a "Trumplican" means never acknowledging that you are wrong.

I think there is still a chance, however slight, that there might be a republican or two that will refuse the honor of letting Trump stick his dick in their mouth.
