Globalist Military

Criticism by Generals has been with us a long time. They aren't automatically correct - they're seeing the world through a narrow viewpoint.

It kind of feeds itself. Assign a General to a globalist task, and that General comes back to promote the task assigned. The policy is self-sustaining.

All the way back to 1919...

The author of the above piece states that our globalism dates back to WWII. Respectfully disagree...

The issue is interesting to me since I once worked for a man who, as a Navy LT JG aged 24, was in command of the port of Murmansk and the radio listening post on Soviet hill above the port. This was part of the UK/US allied expeditionary force inside Russia to prevent the Germans from taking advantage of the Russian collapse - the Germans rushed into the territory supposedly independent after the surrender treaty to seize resources to continue the fight on the western front. So the Allies intervened to stop the Germans. Then, Germany surrendered - and the situation changed into a civil war, as the communists fought to regain the territory. After a year, the Allies withdrew and the White Russians (and others) were defeated leading to 70+ years of communist domination.

As an aside, the recent movie "Hunter Killer" has much of the action set in the Russian Navy base now located at Murmansk...
