    http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/ret-gen-john-allen-donald-trump-credibility/story?id=41021091Retired Marine Corps Gen. John Allen said that if Republican nominee Donald Trump becomes president and follows through on some of the things he’s said on the campaign trail, the U.S. could face a “civil military crisis, the like of which we’ve not seen in this country.”

    "When we swear an oath to support and defend the Constitution, which is a document and a set of principles and it supports the rule of law, one of those is to ensure that we do not obey illegal orders," Allen told told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on "This Week."

    In the past, Trump has supported the use of waterboarding and other enhanced interrogation techniques, and has said the military should kill the families of alleged terrorists.

    "He's talked about needing to torture. He's talked about needing to murder the families of alleged terrorists," Allen said. "He's talked about carpet-bombing ISIL. Who do you think is going to carpet-bombed when all that occurs? It's going to be innocent families."

    Were Trump to order such things, Allen said, he would be ordering illegal actions.

    2. Allen was in charge of a failed ISIS strategy.

    3. If Allen were a cadet or midshipman in a service academy he would be kicked out on an honor violation. "A cadet will not lie, cheat, steal, or tolerate those who do." No doubt about Hillary being a liar.

    A bit more on the background of Allen:

    Within a few weeks of Leon Panetta informing the media of an investigation into General John Allen, Allen retires.

    Occam’s Razor: 2012’s General Allen’s quiet disappearance, is 2014’s political leverage to use General Allen as the tool needed to present the image of Obama’s fight against ISIS.

    you know what the job of the corrupt military is?
    1. protect the oil
    2. protect the shipping lanes
    3. get rid of Russia
    4. weasel as many crooked defense contracts as possible and pocket as many kick-backs as possible

    fyi: 90% of military officers have, or never will do, a god damn thing in their lives besides collect a Federal check every 2 weeks
