Congress grills Never Right Milley

No one has dulled conservative support of the American military quite like Democrat General Milley. His promotion of PC seeks to weaken our military, while he has shown repeatedly he knows nothing about doing his actual job.

His defiance of President Trump should have gotten him canned, but Trump's unwillingness to fire anyone cost him his job. 

In June 2020, when rioters torched a church across from the white House, the next day President Trump walked to it carrying a Bible. Milley went along but cowered when people criticized him.

On June 11, 2020, NPR reported, "Gen. Mark Milley has apologized for appearing in a photo-op with President Trump after authorities used tear gas and rubber bullets to clear the area from peaceful protesters."

Wrong.

One year later, NPR reported, "The U.S. Park Police did not clear protesters from a park outside the White House so then-President Donald Trump could take a photo-op at a nearby church, an Interior Department inspector general's report found."

Two months later, Milley got Afghanistan all wrong leading to America's biggest humiliation since the Fall of Saigon.

On August 20, 2021, NPR reported, "The quick collapse of the Afghan National Army stunned many, including the Pentagon's top military officer, Gen. Mark Milley. He told reporters this week that the U.S. intelligence community estimated that if U.S. forces withdrew, it would be weeks, months, even years before the Afghan military fell to the Taliban.

"Instead, it was just 11 days.

"So what happened? How could U.S. officials be so wrong?"

Let me set aside that last question for now.

The third thing Milley got wrong was the Russo-Ukraine war.

On February 5, Fox reported, "Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley told lawmakers that Kyiv could fall within 72 hours if a full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine takes place, multiple congressional sources tell Fox News.

"Milley told lawmakers during closed-door briefings on Feb. 2 and 3 that a full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine could result in the fall of Kyiv within 72-hours, and could come at a cost of 15,000 Ukrainian troop deaths and 4,000 Russian troop deaths.

"Several lawmakers expressed concern that the Biden administration did not respond quickly to provide Ukraine with significant military aid, such as anti-aircraft and rocket launcher systems that would defend against an invasion from Russia."

Nearly 72 days later, Russia appears to have given up on Kyiv.

Fox reported, "Milley's new Ukraine war prediction is stark departure from early forecast of '72 hour' takeover."

Now he's predicting the conflict will last for years.

Which is good news given his track record of being wrong, wrong, wrong.

Now back to NPR's question, "How could U.S. officials be so wrong?"

The answer is simply that no one in Washington ever pays a penalty for being wrong. Even NPR did not can Nina Totenberg for lying about the justices feuding over wearing masks at court hearings.

As any parent knows, you get what you tolerate.

Milley has squandered the Pentagon's credibility, which I believe is the plan. After Afghanistan, many a veteran no longer advises youths to do a hitch in the military.

  2. There are so many know-nothings in Washington, Thoroughly Modern Milley has to take a number.

    Sadly, this POS is destroying one of the last things we could rely on, our military.

  3. Milley belongs in an HR department. Oh wait, he is turning the military into one.

  4. Exactly correct. No one ever pays the price for being wrong in DC, while at the same time only republicans ever get a fully armed 15 member SWAT team busting down their door at 5am because they were a trump supporter.

  5. If the RINOs such as they are LOSE, and we WIN, what I would do is like a Clockwork Orange trip…put clips on Milley’s eyelids, feed his eyeballs with Visine, and force him to watch clips of ALL his gross gaffes. Shite, that reel would be as long as a fooking documentary. Oh, and apply electric shocks to his gonads at the worst parts. We’ve gone from Ike, Patton, and Bradley to that assclown? Lord, come back soon…

      PS You don't want Patton back, you want MacArthur.

    2. In his memoirs, Bradley wrote that he did not want Patton commanding the Third Army because Patton was too much a theatrical loose cannon. Instead, he preferred Lucian Truscott, who finished the war commanding the Fifth Army in Italy after Mark Clark got kicked upstairs.

    3. MacArthur was a grandstander. He had an ObamAA- sized ego. His decisions cost lives and wasted time and materials.
      Patton proved his worth.

  8. Trump's unwillingness to fire anyone cost him his job.

    No, Trump's willingness to fire slugs like Mattis did not cost him his job. Trump's willingness to do his job cost him his job.

    1. The list of people President Trump should have fire is long and includes about every person who has roots in DC.
      He should have fired many many more.
      Mattis is one of the few who got what he deserved.

    2. Every federal employee at GS-14 or above should have been given the boot. And every military officer in a non-combat command at O-7 or above.

  9. The Russians, Chinese and Iranians are laughing at our military. The US military is more concerned about DIEing (Diversity, Inclusion, Equity) than combat readiness. The army can't get enough recruits even with a $50k signing bonus. I'm not surprised by that, what sane person would want to serve in woke clown car that is today's armed forces.

  11. Not defending Milley, but did Russia ever intend to take Kiev? They always said eastern Ukraine was their target and surrounding Kiev was a tactic to keep Ukrainian troops away from Donbass, the real target. Maybe we should pay attention to what Putin says?
