Top U.S. General Warns: “The Decision To Use Force Is No Less Than An Act of War”

by Mac Slavo, SHTFPlan:

For those politicians in Washington and their supporters who think engaging the Syrian army with a “kinetic action” akin to Libya’s “no fly zones” is all it will take to oust the regime of President Bashar al-Assad, consider the latest assessment from America’s top commanding officer.

On Thursday Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey told a Senate committee that the Obama administration is considering the use of military force in Syria.

Gen. Dempsey warned “the decision to use force is … no less than an act of war,” adding that the U.S. “must anticipate and be prepared for the unintended consequences of our action. … Deeper involvement is hard to avoid.”

Before going over the options, Dempsey reiterated his non-committal stance: ”The decision over whether to introduce military force is a political one that our Nation entrusts to its civilian leaders. I also understand that you deserve my best military advice on how military force could be used in order to decide whether it should be used.”

    Dempsey and a few others are standing in between the insane power elite and their world war. That’s why they have been cleaning house in the military but some aren’t so easy to get rid of.
