[August 29, 2021] The American military no longer trusts you. The American people no longer believe what you say. You are a disgrace and embarrassment to the uniform and remain a standing beacon of failure for all to see. U.S. Army General Mark Milley, you must resign NOW!
Tear those four stars off your new nostalgic uniform and show us you have the dignity to step aside and let a real leader take charge. It’s not complicated. You were “in charge” of the greatest military in the history of the world, and you allowed a 10th-century ragtag army – without any advanced weaponry – to defeat an alliance you helped oversee and us. And then you allowed them to humiliate America to boot.
The fact that you had a hand in this military debacle – that continues to unfold – is enough for you to do what is right and tell the President of the United States that his policy is a failure. Then throw your stars on his desk. Okay, but that would require a smidgeon of honor, something you do not have. Americans know it. Your troops know it. If you don’t know it, you are more of a dunderhead than I thought possible.
You repeatedly lied to the American people about the Afghanistan war. That is a disgrace of epic proportions. Lying means you betrayed us. Lying means you also threw our military under the bus and got many of them killed because you did not have the guts to tell a President that he should stop lying to the public.
You have refused to accept responsibility for this ongoing catastrophic failure, a disaster with evil consequences even a girl scout could see. If Biden doesn’t fire you, he’s an idiot too. In this disaster, you are the “man,” so do what a man is supposed to do. See yourself, know that you are not up to the task of being a General and take a walk. Get out and get out now.
The fact that you played politics instead of doing your job goes against the very nature of civil-military relations. You are a political hack. Yes, there is civilian control of the U.S. military. We all know that. You stepped over the line and became a leftist political tool. It follows that this is one of many reasons Americans are calling on your to quit right now.
Gen. Mark Milley, you do not have our military’s back. You are not a strategic thinker. And, you are not a leader.
Let’s be blunt because that is the only way to get your attention. Gen. Mark Milley, you are a coward.
