Former Commanders Fault Trump’s Use of Troops Against Protesters

Draft-dodgers might be cowards, but they are not stupid. It takes skill and privilege to get a medical note excusing you from military service during the Vietnam War. Other Republicans managed the same feat, avoiding danger, while relishing the grandeur of military violence. Now, the draft-dodger in charge is planning a dictator like show of force using the American armed forces, against his own citizens. He has certainly learned a lot from non-democratic countries, but the United States is not a third world developing country with an uneducated population.

I love media and communication, as well as digital technology. I write and speak fluently in Spanish and English. I was born in New York, but was sent to Puerto Rico at an early age, where I lived until drafted by the U.S. army. Upon returning from an honorable discharge, I found Puerto Rico small and limited at the time. I moved to Boston where I pursued musical studies and later worked as a musician, teacher, and speech-pathologist in New York. I am currently still interested in world politics, social justice, and income inequality. Health and wellness are essential to survive and thrive. I am working on patience and skills necessary to keep learning.
