It seems that both CNN and Trump’s former military advisors could do with a reminding of who reports to whom in the President/military advisors relationship. pic.twitter.com/FEvO6mln44— Drew Holden (@DrewHolden360) September 14, 2021
If this is true GEN Milley must resign. He usurped civilian authority, broke Chain of Command, and violated the sacrosanct principle of civilian control over the military. It’s an extremely dangerous precedent. You can’t simply walk away from that. #dotherightthingintherightway https://t.co/izsMMCFPrz— Alexander S. Vindman (@AVindman) September 14, 2021
Disgraced General Mark Milley openly committed treason against the United States, pledging to secretly work with the Chinese military, America’s enemy, just to undermine Pres. Trump. Milley vowed to betray our service members and alert the CCP if the US was planning to attack. pic.twitter.com/zS9pM3aTS8— Pearson Sharp (@PearsonSharp) September 14, 2021

“I do think that history will likely regard Gen. Milley as an honorable man, but what this represents is a shattering of civilian military relations in this country… I don’t blame Gen. Milley for any in as much I blame Donald Trump” – @SteveSchmidtSES w/ @NicolleDWallace pic.twitter.com/FV3ki8HK7Z— Deadline White House (@DeadlineWH) September 14, 2021
I called it in my League speech.
The fat ass general who compared Blumpf to Adolf Hitler and his supporters to the Nazis and the Capitol Siege to the Reichstag Fire not only subverted civilian authority and the chain of command to thwart the withdrawal from Afghanistan and any crackdown on the BLM riots, but entered into secret negotiations with his Chinese counterpart. He went so far as to vow to give China advanced warning of an impending American attack. He effectively launched a coup against the president.
“Twice in the final months of the Trump administration, the country’s top military officer was so fearful that the president’s actions might spark a war with China that he moved urgently to avert armed conflict.
In a pair of secret phone calls, Gen. Mark A. Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, assured his Chinese counterpart, Gen. Li Zuocheng of the People’s Liberation Army, that the United States would not strike, according to a new book by Washington Post associate editor Bob Woodward and national political reporter Robert Costa. …
“General Li, I want to assure you that the American government is stable and everything is going to be okay,” Milley told him. “We are not going to attack or conduct any kinetic operations against you.”In the book’s account, Milley went so far as to pledge he would alert his counterpart in the event of a U.S. attack, stressing the rapport they’d established through a backchannel. “General Li, you and I have known each other for now five years. If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time. It’s not going to be a surprise.” …”
There you have it.
This is the ultimate warning of where imperialism and militarism inevitably leads.
