America has never had a military coup–That we know of.
This story is about a “what might have been.”
We see it in other countries all the time. Popular general-weak president.
The general sees fit to take over as president. After all, it seems to make a lot of sense.
I like this story because it had a lot of intrigue. You don’t know what is going to happen, how things are going to work out even at the very end. The power play between such powerful figures is fascinating to me.
