Imagine you are President in June, 1944. What would you do?

One of America’s top D-Day generals has defected to the Germans and is in a plane due to land in France at 3PM on June 2.

If you had 10,000 paratroopers close enough, would you send them to attack the airfield and kill the American general before he could disclose the D-Day secrets?

If you had 10,000 tanks close enough, would you send them to attack the airfield and kill the American general before he could disclose the D-Day secrets?

If you had a drone, would you fire it at the American general’s plane to kill the American general before he could disclose the D-Day secrets?

What would you do?

I would do either as long as the General was captured.

i would plant phony war plans on the general and make my push though the alps.

I'd light up an icbm. And a cigar.

icbm = drone ?

[-] 0 points by Theeighthpieceuv8 (-32) from Seven Sisters, Wales 9 years ago

Nah, nothing so complicated as a drone. I'd use an icbm.

I wouild do what was necessary to protect America
which option do YOU think would best protect America

[-] -1 points by mideast (506) 9 years ago

I dont care what party you are in
this has to do with protecting Americans
does anyone have the courage to answer my question?

[-] -2 points by Timex2 (-11) 9 years ago

It does matter. If I'm a Repub, you'll hate me no matter what i do. IF I'm a D, you'll bend over backwards to always defend me. I have feelings too.

I "hate" VERY few people - grover, kochs, atwater, lapierre

[-] -1 points by HCabret (-327) 9 years ago

I'd resign.

[-] -1 points by mideast (506) 9 years ago

very brave - you just cost the lives of 5,000 Americans and delayed the Revolution's victory by two years

[-] -1 points by HCabret (-327) 9 years ago

Screw the "Revolution". I have no desire to contribute positively to Communism/socialism/Marxism/anarchism/libertarianism in anyway shape or form

In fact, in my opinion suppressing violence would be a Good thing.

Traitor. Hang him!

That's what I keep saying!?!?

Cool. So off with your head!

[-] -1 points by HCabret (-327) 9 years ago

I was talking bout the commies.

Where?

[-] -1 points by HCabret (-327) 9 years ago

New York city.

Ohh, well I'm with ya on that one. They should give that place to the people that want it, then cordon it off with a moat filled with prehistoric alligators and patrol boats; a one bridge exit with a mega toll to leave.

[-] -1 points by HCabret (-327) 9 years ago

i am really confused? who did you originally want to be hung?

I was just stating my displeasure with the idea of holding a Revolution. You are the one who brought up capital punishment.

[-] 0 points by Theeighthpieceuv8 (-32) from Seven Sisters, Wales 9 years ago

Only for those that deserve it. And many do.

I would do what FDR did and Eisenhower did.

[-] -1 points by mideast (506) 9 years ago

FDR & Ike never had to deal with a traitor divulging D-Day secrets to the Germans

Not that we know of.
