America’s Generals Lied, Lost Wars,
And Looted The People They Claimed
To Serve

Original Article

Posted By: Judy W., 8/7/2021 3:41:45 PM

Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told Congress in June that he wanted to understand “white rage,” why “thousands of people” tried “to assault this building and … overturn the Constitution of the United States of America.” If Milley really wants to understand the “rage” of the American people he should start by asking why he and his fellow generals can’t win any wars. As a Marine Corps officer who served at the tail end of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, I saw firsthand the rapid ideological transformation pervading the military in the wake of these disasters in the Middle East.

The commies have been very successful with their long march through the institutions that has corrupted every aspect of American society and government. President Trump's American First policy threatened too many nests in every nook and cranny of the federal government. If there is to be a Great Reset, it must a revival and reanimation of our glorious and wise U.S. Constitution. We need to dump the Defense Department and return to the War Department, that has a singular focus on the safety and security of America.

It's ironic how those retired generals who opposed Bush's Iraq War, and were vilified out here, turned out to be right.

This isn't new. In the early 90's at my base the commander outlawed bad words. Then he sent the senior NCO's to all the barracks to listen at doors and around corners, and bust anyone caught using them. Then in the late 1990's another one had the senior NCO's do no-knock inspections of barracks rooms looking for evidence of underage drinkers. The only reason he stopped was he kept violating "dont ask dont tell". He's also the genius that had a plan to send fire inspectors to the houses in base housing, pretending to look for fire hazards but really looking for evidence of smoking. That one was never implemented, but plenty of others were. He made life a living hell for everyone. A major defense contractor hired him after retirement, but at least he was out of our hair. Parties were thrown after he was gone.

To bad we don’t have a military that will defend the Constitution and our borders rather than make Generals multimillionaires! A “woke” military is no military it’s like having cardboard cutout tanks useless! “Without accountability, a republic falls. America’s generals deserve the cleansing fire.” Amen and Amen!

General Milley and Secretary Idi Amin turned the military into the go-to place for wedding tackle surgery to become transgender. A Petri dish for Critical Race Theory and uprooting White rage. All current flag officers lost all wars they fought. The US Navy seems even worse. They cannot sail a destroyer across the Malacca straights without colliding with commercial merchant ships. An aircraft carrier was publically removed from service because a cowardly captain had a few cases of CCP virus. The Navy let the Bonhomme Richard and a pier completely burn down in San Diego without a fire watch on a Sunday, 4 Billion gone up in flames. China laughs at US.

Most, not all but most Generals get to their rank by kissing butt! Once they get the one star it is a race to the second within a certain period of time. If they don't make it they are out. Have a family member who was a one star and didn't make it to two. Never saw one bullet fired in anger! I'm ashamed of what we did in the Middle East under Bush and Cheney to our fighting men and women! They deserve much better!

My most beloved nephew was KIA in Afghanistan two weeks after getting married. I will never forgive these worthless, corrupt flag officers for expending human lives as if they were nothing of much value. If we didn't have a real strategy to win, if it was all some sort of a damned, stupid, insane, violent game, with no intent of victory, the leaders should die in prison for treason.

When you look at photographs of “Ike” Eisenhower in uniform at the end of the Second World War he usually had two rows of ribbons on his uniform. “Ike” was a five star general and the Supreme Allied Commander in Europe during that war, commanding all American, British, and Canadian forces fighting in Western Europe. “Ike” did what he had to do to win his war against the Nazis, went on to be a two term President, and was not a fan of the military-industrial complex. In contrast, look at America’s generals these days. None of them have ever won a war, but are strutting around in uniform wearing ten or so rows of ribbons and all sorts of badges and shoulder patches on their uniforms. That should tell you something right there! As far as Afghanistan is concerned it is clear that Bush never should have invaded a primitive place like that without intending to use a total war strategy and tactics against the Taliban, an army of dark age tribesmen whose Islamic ancestors have been fighting wars continuously for many hundreds of years using very brutal total war strategies and tactics against whatever enemies that they came across. With an enemy like the Taliban who know nothing other than continuous and total war, the only way to win against such an enemy is to annihilate them to the last man. Instead Bush, Obama, and the generals advising them, used limited war strategies and tactics towards the Taliban that was a sure loser against the religiously based Taliban who had a history from the get go of never submitted to foreign invaders for many hundreds of years, ending up prolonging the sad US experience in Afghanistan for twenty years with no victory. What is happening now is entirely reminiscent of the end of the Vietnam War with the US military retreating out of Afghanistan, taking untold numbers of Afghans to the USA leaving Afghanistan to the Taliban. If you ask the Taliban they will tell you that they talked the USA out of Afghanistan, thus generously giving the USA a way out of Afghanistan, but only after the USA came to the understanding that a war against the Afghan Taliban was impossible to win using Western Democracy style limited warfare strategies and tactics.

America started losing wars in the 1950's with Korea. WW2 hero General Douglas MacArthur wanted to use nukes on Korea but that wasn't allowed, and he was fired. After WW2 America never fought a war to win.

#4, retired generals or those on active duty can have opinions just like the rest of us. 1) Active duty generals job is to carry out orders to the best of their ability whether they oppose the war or not. They proceeded to make excuses for their poor performance; the most popular one being, "we didn't use enough troops." This leads me to 2) the retired generals were directly responsible for the paper tiger Army of the post-Gulf War. Yet, it was amazing these retirees conducted a routine parade of visits to the theater at our expense right up to the first withdrawal from Iraq. And finally, 3) I'm glad Josiah mentioned the technique of blaming the media as a distractor from the generals' malfeasance. Just like VN these journos, regardless of their left leanings can smell military BS. You want to shut them up? Win battles and wars.

Excellent article and comments. It is disgrace to admit what our military brass has become. I am sure there are Patriots in the upper echelon but they must be few and far between. #18, Hit the nail on the head. War requires a determination to defeat the enemy totally. It appears that philosophy has been relegated to the dust bin. Imagine the outcome of all the wars since WWII if we had gone to battle with the sole goal of annihilating the enemy. We had all the necessary requirements to win except the most important, the will to win and then get out and come home. The world today would be a safer place, our allies would be more supportive and our enemies would fear us. Now, no one fears us under Biden lead except the troops who have to follow his dangerous and ridiculous dictates. China could eat our lunch tomorrow with the discipline and determination to do whatever war requires to win. The fact that they are weaponizing viruses should tells us just how resolute they would be to use whatever means to defeat us. I won’t even go into the fact that democrats fund this abomination. I love and respect the fighting men and women who willingly put their lives into the hands of men who do not have the moral integrity to lead. They are not the problem. The fish rots from the head and it’s beginning to stink to high heaven with the likes of Milley at the top. Like everything else the left touches, it destroys and our military is no exception. When is someone going to make the point that democrats are not only anti-American totalitarians but they are complete incompetents. As I have said before, their specialty is corruption, lawlessness and criminality, but they cannot govern. They are a special kind of incompetent that only knows destruction. Most of us will agree that we love this country, but hate this government for what it has done and is doing to our beloved Republic.

Look at the first Gulf War. We won that. The goals were clearly defined and achievable. A case can be made that we won the second Gulf War. Saddam and his sons are dead. That regime will never be back. Can't say we won in Afghanistan. The enemy was the Taliban. We knocked them out of power, but after twenty years they will soon be back in power. After 9/11, we had purged the Taliban from Afghanistan, but they had safe haven in other countries. They were allowed to grow in strength, and come back in to Afghanistan 20 years later. When waging a war the goals have to be achievable, and the people waging the war have to be of one mind. That's a major problem. The goals changed with each President. Some of the goals (nation building) were so nebulous one could not tell what the goals were or if they had been reached. The reason the Taliban won was because they had safe havens in other countries, and we were unwilling to expand the war. We did not want wars in Pakistan or Iran. We did what we could in Afghanistan. Hopefully all the original leaders of the Taliban after 9/11 are dead. Not sure that is the case. When waging a war in Afghanistan only set modest goals. That's the best you can do. Its hardly a country. The people running the country only rule as far as their guns will reach.

Investigations and a commission? Watch out what you ask for. There is a simple notion that a corrupt government will appoint honest investigators to publish a full report. That will not happen. The arch-villains in this are the politicians and nation-building bureaucrats who facilitated the transfer of these billions. It was no secret. Some may recall that the then-vaunted Gen Petraeus said he would rather fight a war and attain peace with dollars than bullets. He knew these various criminals, both ours and theirs, could be bought like any was just the dickering over the price. Government was ineffectual as we installed kebob shop managers as presidents and ministers. Once again, the US makes a decades-long mistake of involving itself in a civil war half way around the world. Yeah, it was all about getting bin Laden and our "security". You know, just one more surge would have done it. That's the American was of stupid military thinking. I bet the eventual DC memorial will be something...

Anytime a four star General publicly talks about getting involved in or taking a stand in domestic US politics, or worse not understanding what is going on in domestic US politics, as an example Miley’s comment about “white rage” something that he may have made up to ingratiate himself with the leftist and socialist Democrats, it is time at the least for that General to retire instead of leading a wild goose chance throughout the military seeking out raging “White Supremists” to remove from the military. The result of which will be dubious at the least, shown by the USMC reportedly only finding and discharging four extremists in the last year out of the entire USMC. Miley has shown that he is a political General, who by the way has never won a war, so it is time for him to go. That would be fine, but what other political General would Biden find to replace Miley? As no doubt the pickings are just as deep these days in the military swamp as they are in the DC civilian swamp.

Unlike Schwarzkopf and Horner the poor, soon to be rich, generals and admirals did not fight in any jungles or deserts, provide air cover or fight a naval engagement to know the horrors those they conscript to fight are suffering through. Desert Storm was fought by men that were bloodied in Vietnam. Hit fast, hit hard, destroy, get in, pacify and get out. After we leveled northeast Afghanistan we had the tribal leaders but we didn't pacify when we went woke murdering afghan school teachers and medical professionals returning to rebuild. The Chinese PLA is filling our vacuum and watch, they brutally and without media may succeed.

As an example of the corruption that goes on with so-called “Nation Building” in third world countries, check out the fact that then Vice-President Biden’s brother was given the US Government’s contract to build thousands of houses in Iraq, even though he apparently had no prior experience in building large tracts of houses in foreign countries.

#26 - Where did Obie get all his several hundreds of commie generals? The Want Ads? The number seems inflated, and the replacements came from “the line” that keeps moving up. Careerists bringing protégés along. The peacetime military is historically lacking. But let’s spend more and more expanding it for our “security.”

Is the federal government torturing Brian Kolfage? 5 replies

Brian Kolfage, an airman who survived losing both legs and an arm in Iraq, started a fundraiser to build a wall on our Southern border. The project took off, a lot of money flowed in, and the federal government promptly went after Kolfage, accusing him of defrauding those who donated money. This post is not about Kolfage’s guilt or innocence on the charges against him. It is, instead, about allegations that the government is effectively torturing him by denying him access to a medicine that controls the nerve pain resulting from his leg amputations. We know that the government has been exceptionally vicious in its prosecution against Kolfage.

Wretchard summarizes Biden’s challenging week and notes the challenges are going to get even bigger: Joe Biden is facing simultaneous challenges. The collapse of Afghanistan in place of a “decent interval”; The resurgence of the Covid Delta variant in place of the anticipated reopening of society; Looming inflation and economic problems in place of the anticipated boom. The unending border crisis. It’s a dramatic reversal of fortune on all fronts. Biden failed to anticipate either the events or their speed and intensity and there is little to suggest he can handle the second order crises that is coming in its wake.

Of all the reinventions Bob Dylan has undertaken in his long, shape-shifting career, none was more radical and jarring than his conversion to Christianity in the late 1970s. In terms of defying expectations, not even going electric can compare with going evangelical. This was Bob Dylan after all, a Jewish-born avatar of 1960s counterculture. He could have adopted few other identities that would have felt like such a direct repudiation of everything his fans thought he represented. What happened? How did the restless mind behind “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “Like a Rolling Stone” find Jesus Christ and later release a trio of Christian rock records?

A former U.S. national security official warned that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is stealing data to compile a “dossier” on every American adult and may use coercive means to influence private citizens and political leaders. During a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing this week, former Trump deputy national security adviser Matthew Pottinger said the CCP has stolen Americans’ sensitive data via illicit methods, including cyber theft and hacking. “Assembling dossiers on people has always been a feature of Leninist regimes, but Beijing’s penetration of digital networks worldwide, including using 5G networks … has really taken this to a new level,” Pottinger said, referring to former Soviet dictator Vladimir Lenin.

Of the more than 64,000 people who responded to a recent survey by the bureau, 13.1% of LGBTQ adults reported living in a household “where there was sometimes or often not enough to eat in the past seven days,” compared to 7.2% non-LGBTQ adults. The latest version of the Household Pulse Survey, which measures household experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic, also included questions about respondents’ sexual orientation and gender identity.

Gov. J.B. Pritzker on Friday signed into a law a bill that bars hair discrimination in schools, saying it will help ensure that students statewide feel “comfortable and confident in their own skin.”But the mother whose son was an inspiration for the law — a 4-year-old Black child who was told his braids were a violation of school dress codes — said the moment “is bigger than just hair.”“Our hair is an extension of who we are as a race and is deeply connected with our cultural identity,” said Ida Nelson, who had a front row seat at the bill signing, holding son Gus “Jett” Hawkins in her lap.

GOP Senate leader Mitch McConnell called on President Biden to launch 11th hour airstrikes against the Taliban in Afghanistan, as the group comes perilously close to seizing the nation’s capital of Kabul. “It is not too late to prevent the Taliban from overrunning Kabul,” The Kentucky senator said in a statement Friday, Fox News reported. “The Administration should move quickly to hammer Taliban advances with airstrikes, provide critical support to the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF) defending the capital, and prevent the seemingly imminent fall of the city.” The message came after McConnell had what he described as an “urgent conversation” with Adela Raz,

He sure is. One can give him a partial pass on COVID’s resurgence since the rise of the Delta variant was out of his hands. But the other three here are squarely on him. Even COVID is only a partial pass. Many millions of senior citizens are sitting around waiting to be infected as the immunity from shots they received six or seven months ago ebbs. What are Biden’s CDC and FDA doing about it? Jack at the moment, to all appearances. I have no sense of how the catastrophic lightning fall of Afghanistan’s government will play with voters.

Marine Corps General David H. Berger on Monday rebuked Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s edict requiring all Armed Forces personnel to submit to Covid-19 vaccinations under threat of court martial or discharge, said a source in Gen. Berger’s office who overheard a heated conversation between them. Gen. Berger telephoned the defense secretary minutes after he said in a press conference that the Covid-19 vaccination is needed to maintain military readiness and that he would enforce the mandatory vaccination policy regardless of FDA approval status. “There will be no mandatory vaccinations for my Marines,” Gen. Berger said.

The United States Department of Homeland Security made a quiet and alarming announcement yesterday, creating the official position of the United States Government under the Joe Biden regime. [SEE DHS STATEMENT HERE] According to the statement, if you question the orthodoxy, mandates, or COVID-19 response from the U.S. government, you are now considered a “terrorist”, specifically a “Domestic Violent Extremist” (DVE).This is quite a remarkable development and seems to underpin the tenuous, unstable and fragile disposition of the current regime. The Department of Homeland Security seems rather paranoid in their need to label anyone who would question the COVID-19 response. More than half the country would now

Gas customers voiced their disappointment and frustration regarding soaring prices in Arlington, Virginia, on Thursday. “It’s killing me.

What will it take for Joe Biden to admit he is disastrously wrong about Afghanistan? The US leader struck a defiant pose last week. Sounding like a slightly desperate Olympics coach, he told Afghans it was their country. If they want it, they have to fight for it. In American politics-speak, this is called tough love. Without the love. Biden has more hands-on foreign policy experience than any president since George HW Bush. That doesn’t mean he knows what he’s doing. Opinion polls suggest his abrupt Afghan withdrawal has majority public support. That doesn’t mean Americans will remain indifferent as the carnage and misery mount.
