There are worse things than a coup -- right?

Scott McConnell, editor of The American Conservative, in “High Noon for the Republican Party”, Harper’s Magazine:

If the next president orders the military to invade or bomb Iran or some other country, I would probably welcome it if some key generals said, “No Mr. (or Madam) President, not this time,” and went over the head of the president for congressional and popular support. At this point I’d put as much trust in the judgment and patriotism of a high-ranking military officer as in that of a politician who has spent decades catering to the fabulously rich men who finance both major parties.
