Would you like to commit war crimes? Y/N

Oh no! The JAG is on your case for killing more American civilians than the average 9/11 attacker. How unfair! Is this all the fault of the liberals? Y/N

So... I didn't like the politics of this book. It's also sort of low key racist. It also fails to engage with how 150 years of advancing technology would change how we fight wars. Instead it posits a universe with star fleets and FTL and anti-grav and dozens of interstellar colonies, but otherwise things are still kind of the same. Also, the military is good and democratic socialism is bad, except for the military's socialism which is good. I was promised that aliens would show up in this book but I didn't make it that far.

Edit: ok, I actually did end up making it to the aliens. This part was ok! So if you do want to read this book, just take the first half of the book, rip it out, and then read the rest.
