  • No 'defensive systems are capable of dealing with' China's hypersonic missile, Milley says

    The United States would be incapable of defending itself against a hypersonic missile akin to the experimental one China launched over the summer, according to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Gen. Mark Milley acknowledged the gap in the U.S. defense capabilities during a talk at Duke University on Friday afternoon. Over the summer, China tested “a nuclear-capable hypersonic missile” that “circled the globe before speeding towards its target, demonstrating advanced space capabilities that caught U.S. intelligence by surprise,” the Financial Times reported last month. However, Chinese government officials have denied it.

    The U.S. military "absolutely" could defend Taiwan from a potential Chinese attack if asked to do so, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark Milley said Wednesday. Speaking at the Aspen Security Forum, Milley said he did not expect China to attempt to seize the self-governing island in the next 24 months, but should it happen, U.S. forces “absolutely have the capability” to defend Taipei, “no question about that.” He also allowed that Beijing is “clearly and unambiguously building the capability to provide those options to the national leadership if they so choose at some point in the future.”

    It's unlikely that China will make some kind of move on Taiwan within the next two years, U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark Milley said on Wednesday. Milley's comments came amid heightened tension in the region and U.S. reassurances that it would stand with Taiwan against Chinese aggression. Milley was asked on Wednesday whether he thought China was preparing to make a move on Taiwan within the near future.
  • Blinken’s Indo-Abraham Accords quickly come undone ---- US top envoy apparently unaware Trump's Abraham Accords stood on weak foundations and getting India involved is sheer folly

    US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is a man in a hurry. His president expects him to produce foreign policy success stories. Success stories are desperately needed as post-Afghanistan, the superpower has become a laughing stock universally. The trans-Atlantic alliance is seriously disoriented and Russia is on the prowl in the heart of Europe with natural gas to sell. The Iranians are yet to give a date for the resumption of talks on the US return to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) nuclear accord. As for China, the less said the better. The chairman of the US Joint...
  • Biden's Henchmen Appear As Detached From Reality As Their Hapless Boss

    As resident Joe Biden jet sets off to another useless climate change conference, he is leaving behind a government defined by such indifference and ineptitude that the hapless chief executive might as well take an extended vacation. Does the apparent deteriorating mental acuity of a president affect those around him? Whether or not there is any basis to such an assumption, the cast of characters who comprise resident Joe Biden’s cabinet would seem to suggest that there is at least some truth in that observation. Whenever Biden’s henchmen appear before the Washington media – a sympathetic clique for the Democrats...

    In a controversial passage in Plato's "Republic," Socrates introduced the idea of the "noble lie" ("gennaios pseudos"). A majestic fiction, he says, could sometimes serve society by persuading uninformed citizens of something good for them. Ever since, many prevaricators have used the excuse that they lied for the common good. Take Dr. Anthony Fauci, our point man on the COVID-19 epidemic. Fauci misled the country about mask-wearing during the pandemic by claiming they were of little use. But he argued that he lied so the public would not make a run on masks, deplete the supply, and thus rob medical...
  • Top U.S. general calls China’s hypersonic weapon test very close to a ‘Sputnik moment’

    Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said China’s test of a hypersonic weapons system is “very concerning” — and “very close” to a Sputnik moment as Beijing rapidly expands its military capabilities. As The Washington Post has reported, national security officials were alarmed by the suspected test in August of a nuclear-capable hypersonic vehicle that partially orbited the globe before hurtling toward Earth. As China is in the midst of a rapid expansion of its strategic and nuclear weapons systems, its demonstration of hypersonic and orbital capabilities — first reported by the Financial Times —...

  • Russia draws a red line for US in Central Asia --- The Pentagon’s much-touted plan for staging 'out-of-horizon' operations in Afghanistan appears to be a pipe dream

    Moscow has categorically stated that it will not accept a US military presence in the Central Asian region. This reiteration has come at the level of Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov, who told TASS that Afghanistan had been discussed at a meeting with Victoria Nuland, the visiting US Undersecretary of State, in Moscow on Tuesday. Ryabkov added: “We emphasized the unacceptability of a US military presence in Central Asian countries in any form whatever.” Prima facie, Ryabkov has squashed the disinformation media campaign by Washington that at the Russia-US summit in Geneva in June, President Vladimir Putin had offered...

    Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller was thrown into the brig for daring to rebuke military leadership for surrendering to the Taliban, arming the terrorists group with $83 billion in US weapons, and stranding thousands of Americans and green card holders in the country. The outspoken officer was formally charged with six violations and referred to a special court-martial. On Friday Lt. Col. Scheller was slapped with a $5,000 fine and reprimand. Russia Today reported: Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller has been issued a letter of reprimand and docked $5,000 in pay for his public criticism of the US’ heavily-scrutinized withdrawal from Afghanistan,...

    After two days of testimony by our military commanders on the Biden administration’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, here is what we have learned: Joe Biden is (as the president once termed a skeptical town hall attendee) “a lying, dog-faced pony soldier.” In an interview with ABC News’s George Stephanopoulos last month, Biden said none of his military advisers had recommended leaving a residual force of 2,500 troops in Afghanistan. But Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie Jr., head of US Central Command, both testified that they had advised Biden —...

    Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army Gen. Mark Milley admitted Wednesday during a hearing that he told his Chinese counterpart he would give him a call if the United States were about to attack. Hartzler told Milley, “I understand your intent, but I think you are articulating that — that you would tell him you would give him a call, I think, is worthy of your resignation. I just think that’s against our country that you would give our No. 1 adversary that information and tell him that.”

    Thursday on “CNN Newsroom,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) sounded off on Gen. Mark Milley reportedly blaming the State Department for the botched withdrawal out of Afghanistan. Schiff noted that the “intelligence was pretty good” and said there are “profound questions” about why the Biden administration didn’t have contingency plans in place for what was a “foreseeable” outcome.

    Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) on Wednesday apologized to Gen. Mark Milley for what she called "despicable" questioning of the top military general by fellow Republican lawmakers during a congressional hearing, as the Joint Chiefs chairman fielded questions about comments he made following the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, and phone calls he had with a Chinese official to assure them that the U.S. was not preparing an attack. Cheney, during a House Armed Services Committee hearing about the U.S.’s withdrawal from Afghanistan, opened her five minutes of questioning by discussing the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, arguing that...

    In his testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee on Tuesday, General Mark Milley defended his calls with Chinese officials, which he says were to “cool down” tensions with his counterpart amid rumors of a forthcoming military attack, and discussed a phone call he had with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), whom he suggested encouraged him to undermine the president’s ability to launch a nuclear attack. Pelosi announced on Twitter in January that she’d spoken with Gen. Milley about the nuclear launch procedures, apparently in an effort to strip then-president Donald Trump of his nuclear launch capabilities, just...

Stuart Scheller sees it differently and said so in a video that not only got him relieved of his command but also thrown into jail and held incommunicado Scheller felt his superiors should be held accountable for what Milley admitted was a strategic defeat and said so publicly and so far is the only to pay a price. Schiller admits he deserved to be fire and that he...

    Two secret arms dumps left by US forces in case they return to Afghanistan have been found by the Taliban. The caches - earmarked for US counter-terrorism “over the horizon” attacks against al-Qaeda and Islamic State - were hidden to help the US quickly attack terrorist organisations. Both warehouse-sized stores contained hundreds of thousands of bullets, heavy weapons, missiles, survival supplies and even spare helicopters parts....

    Years of agonizing and frustrating reviews and analysis of the Trump administration activity in real-time are reconciling today. During Senate testimony today before the Armed Services Committee, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman, General Mark Milley, clarified some very painful issues to accept. President Trump was being heavily managed by operatives of the Senior Executive Service (SES), and his inner circle was willfully participating.What follows is in no way a defense of Milley, quite the contrary, Milley is a brutally political, manipulative, entitled and arrogant member of the United States armed forces. His delusions of grandiosity represent the worst of our...

    VIDEOSome might say that General Mark Milley was unmasked during questioning at the Senate Hearing. However, it appears that Milley didn't even wear a mask at all as you can see despite everyone around him wearing masks. I'm cool with that but since Milley loves to curry favor with the liberal ecosystem it is strange that he went maskless.
