quote "by John O. Edwards NewsMax November 21st, 2003 General Tommy Franks says that if the United States is hit with a weapon of mass destruction that inflicts large casualties, the Constitution will likely be discarded in favor of a military form of government. Franks, who successfully led the U.S. military operation to liberate Iraq, expressed his worries in an extensive interview he gave to the menâs lifestyle magazine Cigar Aficionado. In the magazineâs December edition, the former commander of the militaryâs Central Command warned that if terrorists succeeded in using a weapon of mass destruction (WMD) against the U.S. or one of our allies, it would likely have catastrophic consequences for our cherished republican form of government. Already, critics of the U.S. Patriot Act, rushed through Congress in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks, have argued that the law aims to curtail civil liberties and sets a dangerous precedent. But Franksâ scenario goes much further. He is the first high-ranking official to openly speculate that the Constitution could be scrapped in favor of a military form of government." unquote www.cigaraficionado.com Well. Not if true, upstanding and patriotic citizens have their way and remove Bush and his gang of US traitors from office in 2004 and into jail, where they belong !
