“A retired general has warned that the US military could lead a coup after the 2024 election if the results are unclear. Paul Eaton, a retired US Army major general and an adviser to the progressive group VoteVets, told NPR earlier this week that ‘the real question is, does everybody understand who the duly elected president is? If that is not a clear cut understanding, that can infect the rank and file or at any level in the US military.’ ‘We saw it when 124 retired generals and admirals signed a letter contesting the 2020 election,’ he added. Maj Gen Eaton wrote an Op-Ed in The Washington Post alongside fellow generals Antonio Taguba and Steven Anderson on 17 December, stating that they are ‘chilled to our bones at the thought of a coup succeeding next time’ and that the military needs to prepare.” (12/31/21)
