Truth About Our Military
Major Danny Sjursen talks about the consequences of America’s forever wars. "I personally know just about every one of the retired military figures who has spoken out against America’s forever wars.The big three are Secretary of State Colin Powell’s former chief of staff, retired Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson; Vietnam veteran and onetime West Point history instructor, retired Colonel Andrew Bacevich; and Iraq veteran and Afghan War whistleblower, retired Lieutenant Colonel Danny Davis. All three have proven to be genuine public servants, poignant voices, and — on some level — cherished personal mentors. For better or worse, however, none carry the potential clout of a retired senior theater commander or prominent four-star general offering the same critiques."- from "Why Have No Retired Generals Opposed US’s Forever Wars?" by Major Danny Sjursen
