Generals Warn Of Divided Military And Possible Civil War In Next U.S. Coup Attempt

Three retired U.S. generals warned in a chilling column Friday that another coup attempt in America in 2024 could divide the military and plunge an unprepared nation into civil war.

“With the country still as divided as ever, we must take steps to prepare for the worst,” wrote former Army Major Gen. Paul Eaton, former Brigadier Gen. Steven Anderson and former Army Major Gen. Antonio Taguba.

As the nation nears the first anniversary of the Capitol riot, the generals are “increasingly concerned about the aftermath of the 2024 presidential election and the potential for lethal chaos inside our military, which would put all Americans at severe risk,” they wrote in The Washington Post.

“In short: We are chilled to our bones at the thought of a coup succeeding next time,” they added.

The next time could be far more cataclysmic if members of the military throw in with those who want to overthrow the government, the generals warned.

“Without constant maintenance, the potential for a military breakdown mirroring societal or political breakdown is very real,” the trio noted.

A “disturbing number” of veterans and even active-duty military members took part in the attack on the Capitol. The “potential for a total breakdown of the chain of command along partisan lines … is significant should another insurrection occur,” they added.

In a “contested election, with loyalties split,” some might “follow orders from the rightful commander in chief,” while other “rogue units” might “follow the Trumpian loser … it is not outlandish to say a military breakdown could lead to civil war,” the generals warned.

The “lack of military preparedness for the aftermath of the 2020 election was striking and worrying. Trump’s acting defense secretary, Christopher Miller, testified that he deliberately withheld military protection of the Capitol before Jan. 6,” the generals noted.

That can’t happen again, they emphasized.

Military leaders can’t wait for elected officials to take adequate action to prepare for the next time. “Not a single leader who inspired” the last attempt has even been “held to account,” the generals noted.

The Pentagon must act now to reenforce “unity of command,” and order an immediate “civics review” for all members — uniformed and civilian — on the Constitution and electoral integrity, the generals urged.

And in a particularly dark scenario, the generals recommended that the Defense Department “war-game the next potential post-election insurrection or coup attempt to identify weak spots.”

Everyone, they urged, must “show more urgency.”

  1. This is so asinine. The Pentagon,via,fbi. Democrats,Facebook,etc were the planners and had total knowledge of the peaceful protest. Their hired mercenaries caused and created the violence. And real Americans are still waiting too find out facts. And who killed the veteran. I knew goverment was corrupt at the Vietnam war, BE T NOW I KNOW GOVERMENT HAS ALWAYS BEEN CORRUPT. THEY HATE AMERICA,AMERICANS. AND I DONT GIVE A FIG WHAT RACE YOU ARE. YOU HAVE BEEN USED,ABUSED,LIED TOO. WE ARE SLAVES TOO THE NAZI GOVERMENT

  2. What I would like to know is how the Democrats think there won’t be a war on US soil this time with all the fraudulent activity that happened in 2020 We The People will take back FREEDOM in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA this time will be war with GUNS LOCKED AND LOADED READY

  3. OMG. And these are some of the leaders in our military. Sounds like they want dictatorial power – eliminate the first amendment.
    Let’s turn John Durham loose on the “Insurrection “ – investigate FBI involvement, Nazi Pelosi’s failure to accept National Guard, ALL of the videos of the incident, etc.
    While we are at it, why not investigate all of the “peaceful” riots last year?
    Let’s Go Brandon

  4. I am a disabled veteran who is a decendant of the pilgrims and my family has fought in every war this country has been in even before we became a country. I believe that anyone who wants to take up arms against their fellow Americans are not believers in GOD and only want their selfish ways. If they cannot work things out peacefully without violence against their fellow Americans then they are not Americans are true Patriots. May GOD bless America. PS, I am a cousin by blood or marriage to every President and even some of the members of Congress whether they are Democratic or Republican. Even Trump and Biden are my cousins.

  5. biden,harris,nancy and the socialist are the cause of our problems and if left in power will be the cause of a civil war

  6. These generals sound very liberal and are planning ahead to get rid of Trump, if he wins, and the politicians on the left loose power to do anything about it. Beware, the silent majority did not take action after the 2020 election fraud but if it happens again we will demand an accounting.
