    Former President Trump on Saturday called Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark Milley a "f---ing idiot" during an event at Mar-a-Lago on Saturday while talking about the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan. In video shared by Florida attorney Ron Filipkowski on Saturday, Trump could be seen addressing a crowd and speaking about the military planes that were left behind when the U.S. pulled forces out of Afghanistan. Trump claimed that Milley told him that leaving the planes behind was cheaper than moving them to another country. "That's when I realized he was a f---ing idiot," Trump said, eliciting a wave...

    There’s an ancient Chinese proverb from 400 B.C., “when an enemy is woke; first laugh at his strange ways, then kill him.” In today’s military, him can also be replaced with her, it, or whatever pronoun the sailor, soldier, Marine, air person is identifying with at that moment. Across the world our enemies are on the move. China is conducting the biggest military buildup in the Pacific since Japan in the 1930’s. Putin is eyeing the Ukraine like Wily Coyote at an all you can eat Roadrunner buffet. Kim Jong Un is back to his old ways – conducting missiles...

    Oh, the reports just keep filtering in; little bits and pieces of incompetence, bad leadership, cowardice, a myriad of bolos and buffoons; ships running aground, ships on fire, being chased off in the Sea of Oman by the Iranians in Babe Winkelman’s bass boat, submariners and their Marxist wives selling secrets, Marines losing on their own turf last week… Isn’t wokeness fun? Thanks to the left and cowardly senior leaders, the US armed forces have become the Benny Hill Show with high explosives. In today’s military, everything is readiness except actual readiness. Readiness defined as training for war every day,...

    China is unlikely to use military force to seize Taiwan in the near future, but the country’s communist regime does pose a serious threat not only to the self-ruled island, but also to the United States, Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said on Nov. 3.“Based on my analysis of China, I don’t think that it is likely in the near future—being defined as six, 12, maybe 24 months, that kind of window,” he said in response to a question about it.Milley made the remarks while speaking at the Aspen Security Forum, an annual three-day security...

    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.

    Gen. Mark Milley is voicing concern over China's apparent testing of hypersonic weapons, saying the development is "very close" to a "Sputnik moment." “What we saw was a very significant event of a test of a hypersonic weapon system. And it is very concerning,” the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said during an interview this week with Bloomberg Television's “The David Rubenstein Show: Peer-to-Peer Conversations," according to Bloomberg News. “I don’t know if it’s quite a Sputnik moment, but I think it’s very close to that," Milley added. "It has all of our attention.”
  • 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...

    Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on Tuesday put a bright spotlight on President Joe Biden's imprudent withdrawal from Afghanistan. At one point, Republican Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa asked Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, some simple yes-no questions about its consequences. "Has the military's task to defeat terror threats from Afghanistan gotten harder?" Ernst asked. "Yes," said Milley. "Does the Taliban and its other terror partners have more ability to train and prepare in Afghanistan now that we've left?" she asked. "More ability, yes," said Milley. Ernst then cited an inexplicable statement Biden made on...

    <p>Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley conceded to Congress last week that he has been an anonymous source to controversial “inside” progressive muckrakers detailing the supposed dysfunctions of the prior administration. He strangely characterizes such anonymous, self-serving, behind-the-scenes leaking as some sort of public-service transparency. Evidently, it is now a part of the chairman’s duties to serve the media.</p>

    With uncharacteristic restraint, Tucker Carlson referred to Mark Milley as a "national disgrace." In his 12.5 min video, Tucker Carlson ripped into the dishonest, dishonorable, and incompetent conduct of Mark Milley, Ken McKenzie, and Lloyd Austin, and also what the Department of Defense is doing to Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller.Carlson did admit it is likely that Austin, Milley and McKenzie will not receive justice for their wicked actions, and will likely be rewarded by the military-industrial complex for what they did.

    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.”

    Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH) on Wednesday demanded that Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army Gen. Mark Milley turn over all intelligence he had showing that China had believed in the days leading up to the 2020 election that the United States was planning to attack it. Milley had allegedly called Chinese Gen. Li Zuocheng and said, “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. It’s not going to be a bolt out of...

    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...

    Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) took Pentagon leaders to task over the botched Afghanistan withdrawal during a House Armed Services Committee hearing Wednesday. He blasted Gen. Milley for speaking to journalist Bob Woodward for his book Peril: “You spent more time with Bob Woodward on this book than you spent analyzing the very likely prospect that the Afghan government was going to fall immediately to the Taliban.” He also blasted Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, noting that he oversaw the Pentagon program in 2015 meant to train a force of Syrian rebels that produced only four or five fighters. “It just seems...

    Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) on Tuesday asked Gen. Mark Milley why he had not resigned over the deadly evacuation from Afghanistan. “Why haven’t you resigned?” Cotton asked Milley, citing Milley’s comments that President Biden did not consult the general until August 25 about moving the evacuation deadline past the Taliban-enforced deadline of August 31. “General Milley, I can only conclude that your advice about staying in Afghanistan was rejected,” Cotton said. “I’m shocked to learn that your advice wasn’t sought until August 25th on staying past the August 31 deadline.” “I understand that you’re the principal military adviser, but you...

    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...
