Actual, Honest to God Treason
« on: September 14, 2021, 05:35:37 PM »

News today says that Gen Milley (current Chairman of JCS) took it upon himself (apparently after conversing w/ Pelosi) to communicate with his PRC counterpart and agree to inform them in advance should Trump propose to attack China.  Even super-putz Alexander Vindman suggests Milley resign if true.  I'd say something far more serious than resignation is in order.

Hand him a pistol with one cartridge in it, turn around, and walk out the door.

Like anything will actually be done.  He's the military darling of the Hiden/Barrisment administration.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

Considering what they did to Flynn, yes. The meeting between Pelosi and JCS was even worse treason considering she was trying to subvert the military chain at the absolute highest level.

Yes, given what happened to Flynn, this is infuriating, and Rocketman already answered - they won't do squat.

I think they are throwing him under the bus. As a Trump holdover, it's his fault for the failure in Afghanistan.

He likely isn't alone in this sort of behavior.

This reminds me of Defense Secretary James Schlesinger who in the final days of the Nixon administration ordered the military to ignore any nuclear launch orders that did not come from Schlesinger.

But Nixon was WAY worse than Kennedy and LBJ, because Vietnam was Nixon's fault.

Gotta be careful.  I imagine there are younger people these days that think Nixon started that war since LBJ's name is rarely attached to it.

There's truth to that - I had a discussion with someone considerably younger than myself which started something like this:

Him: "Trump has got to be the worst President of all time!"
Me: "What about LBJ and his 58000 dead Americans in Vietnam, a war he deliberately kept us from winning?"
Him: "Huh? Who's LBJ?"

It appears the General didn't exactly deny the accusation:

This reminds me of Charles Bronson's final line in "The Dirty Dozen" where they're in the hospital.  After the brass left, he looked over at Lee Marvin and said "Shooting generals could get to be a habit."  [ar15]  :rofl:

I was listening to a youtube comment on this and he thought they were setting up for something coming around the corner.  He thought some of the stuff we are hearing lately on other issues appeared scripted so he wonders how much crazy stuff we are hearing is prearranged.

I save the outrage for things that actually matters to me. Politicians have been openly been acting as outright criminals and traitors for awhile now, and nothing is ever done about it.

I just watched an interview with KT McFarland. She said that in her time interacting with the Pentagon, Milley's nickname was "General Windsock". If true, it would explain a guy more interested in his career than his oath.

The phone call is just optics. The briefing of top generals where he stuck himself into the chain of command, the Pelosi meeting, that’s the treason. Chief of STAFF. He is an advisor to the president, not an operational commander.

He allegedly promised to warn and aid the Chicoms should we get into a shooting war with them - if true, THAT seems even more treasonous.
