Posted on 09/18/2021 3:10:55 AM PDT by John Semmens
A new book--Peril--written by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa reports that Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark Milley broke the chain of command during the waning months of the Trump Administration by engaging in rogue actions involving China and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif).
According to the book, Milley called a general in China and promised him that he'd be told in advance of any attack on his country planned by the US government. His conversations with Pelosi entailed getting her advice on whether he should follow any orders given to him by the Commander-in-Chief.
Milley defended his communication with China, calling it "good sportsmanship. I wanted them to know that America is not a nation that employs sneak attacks. That's Japan's MO. If we're going to attack a foreign country we ought to have the class to say 'engarde' to give the other guy a chance to defend himself." To a reporter's question "didn't the United States go to a lot of trouble to keep the D-Day invasion plans secret?" Milley replied "that has always troubled me. I vowed never to repeat such an underhanded trick myself."
As for his interactions with Pelosi, Milley asserted that "I was convinced that Trump was unfit to be president. I was seeking to implement a peaceful transfer of power. The Speaker is next in line for the presidency after the vice-president, who I also considered unworthy of the job. If she had given me a clear go ahead signal I would have installed her in the Oval Office before the end of December 2020." Pelosi says she has "no memory of any discussions with Gen. Milley on any topic, ever. Since he was appointed by President Obama I assume he is very well qualified."
In related news, it has been revealed that Milley's claimed "righteous strike" did not take out a carload of suicide bombers, but an aid worker and his family of seven children. Milley admitted that "mistakes sometimes do occur. Regardless of the specific victims of the strike, the important thing is that it makes the point that the US military can reach out and kill someone anywhere in the world. Some may revile us for that, but they will also fear and obey us because of this incident."

“Mistakes were made”.
Its great watching Benedict Milley and Arnold Pelosi concocting ludicrous excuses for treason.
Everything they do to explain, rationalize, or cover-up ...... works against them......
Where do they find these people? The provider of this information in this thread is named John Semmens.
From the named blog:
John Semmens has been writing political satire from a libertarian/conservative perspective since 2005. Readers have favorably compared his work to that of Jonathan Swift, calling it “better than the Onion,” “positively, freakin’ brilliant,” and “great and brutally honest satire.”
There is nothing in this thread that is sound information, has no identifying source except Woodward’s book which is an admitted speculation, a guess, and the information about Milley is so spun it falls down.
How many liberal journalists does it take to screw in a lie? The number changes from moment to moment.
