.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

the media already crucified him and the military hung him out.  that's why he retired at such a low rank.  he did the right thing and was punished for it.  he stood by his actions and his men stood by him.

The Foundation that America was founded and built upon has been in the process of being disassembled one brick at a time by those who hate it ( Liberals, Pacifists, Communists, Marxists, etc. ) now we can add the Islamic Fundamentalists as well.  :(
