Funny, all the people trying to run this country look like civilians to me, but maybe that's a whole nother conspiracy.

they ARE civilians, they are the executives of Defense Contractor Corporations that own the Joint Chiefs of Staff. They and our intelligence apparatus which infiltrated the banking system and the Federal Reserve Board after WW2. they control all facets of our military dictatorship... they wave the flag and the bulk of the military says Gung Ho. that's why they are fools. Victory in Grenada!
