Petraeus and the Fierce Struggles for Imperial Power
by Jack D. Douglas
Recently by Jack D. Douglas: The Lull Before the Social Storm
Almost everyone analyzing the many political crises and scandals erupting at the top of the U.S. is overlooking the Big Picture of the vast struggles for power at the top. There are always such struggles in powerful nations and in vast imperial powers there are commonly fierce struggles. Even totalitarian regimes in which “one man dictatorship” is what people outside see are riven with fierce struggles at the top. Hitler by the late 1930’s was about as close to being a one-man dictator as anyone ever is. He is still referred to that way routinely in the U.S. But that was the Public Front he worked furiously to maintain while carrying out fierce struggles of many kinds against the SA heads, against most of the General Staff of the Wehrmacht which was led by the top General Ludwig Beck, and against many other plotters, some of whom eventually joined von Stauffenberg‘s Valkyrie plot to kill Hitler and sue for peace with the West.
I and many other people have been writing about these struggles at the top in the U.S. for many years. They were fierce in the Vietnam era of the 1960’s and into the 1970’s and involved many conspiratorial groups from the generals to the FBI, the Kennedy and LBJ coalitions, and so on. They are every bit as fierce now.

The soldiers were to fight and die on the behalf of the dear leader. Such loyalty oaths originated in ancient Rome and have been repeated throughout history and to different tyrants.
Obama It is a rumor that Obama wishes the members of the American military would swear and an oath to him over God and the Constitution.
But in his narcissist mindset he truly believes the military serves at his whim. In an ABC interview concerning his flip-flop on Gay marriage he said “when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ is gone,”
Remember that Tough Ole Coot in Virginia Who Refused to Lower Old Glory…?
