While cackling with anticipation, no doubt
Gen. Franks doubts Constitution will survive WMD attack
Gen. Tommy Franks says that if the United States is hit with a weapon of mass destruction that inflicts large casualties, the Constitution will likely be discarded in favor of a military form of government.
A far better plan would be for Americans to discard those who believe the Constitution is an annoying obstacle standing between them and more power, because, hey, with a “military form of government”, then I guess Tommy Franks would be near the pinnacle of unchallenged power, wouldn’t he?
I see no reason why a major attack on the US would have to result in such a government or why such a government would protect us from more attacks – and I very much question why a general is even speaking such madness.
