The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley, reportedly had at least three phone calls with top Chinese military leaders towards the end of Donald Trump's term as President.
In a non-surprising turn of events, one of the men responsible for the laughably bad withdrawal of Afghanistan decided it would be a good idea to boast about his collusion with China's top military leaders in a book scheduled to release next week that chronicles the end of the previous President's term of office. The book, titled Peril, openly discusses General Mark Milley's decision to have conversations with the adversaries of America with the direct intent to inform them of any plans we have that could negatively impact them.
Here's a direct quote from Mark Milley when speaking with the top General of the Chinese military in a secret back-room phone call. “We are not going to attack or conduct any kinetic operations against you. If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time. It’s not going to be a surprise.”
Am I the only one who can see the problem here?
As expected, mainstream media sources, the White House, and members of the Democratic Party are defending Mark Milley's actions. Some Republicans are calling for him to be fired, but we all know that's not going to happen with the current political climate. If he wasn't fired over his complete failure in Afghanistan, he'll probably get out of treason without so much as a slap on the wrist as well. Let's be real here. Accountability doesn't exist for top U.S. Military leaders right now. They can do whatever they want as long as they continue to make woke warfighting policy their primary concern.
If the Commander of Marine Corps Base Hawaii had been caught colluding with the Hawaii Police Department to get a Major out of a DUI, the Commander and the Major would probably both be forced to exit service within a few weeks. If a commander gets an EO complaint, bam fired. Lance Corporal loses a rifle? Also grounds to be fired for an O-5 or below. The top U.S. General gets on the phone with the top military commander of China to tell him he's going to inform him of any pending attack? This is normal. This is fine. No worries there guys.
We live in a clown world where the ring leader tells you the house cat is a lion, and everyone buys two tickets.
