Just look at the way it is manipulated and contributes to dividing a nation, instead of unifying one. Be careful with such claims, especially on an international forum or you get reactions like this.
The political system doesn't divide people. The electorate is already divided in the way they think it's the media that fans the flames and riles them up. You are trying to infer that a political system isn't good if everyone isn't getting along? That is a little short sighted.
As for this General he should lose his job, not sure if he should face charges but he jumped the gun big time. I would give any high ranking military member the benefit of the doubt if the Commander and Chief started melting down but he or she should at least wait till that actually starts to happen. Not when they think it may, His behavior was disgusting.
