Will his Next Medal be a Red Star?

U.S. Army Gen. Mark A. Milley, 20th Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff,  traitor and national disgrace, poses for a command portrait in the Army portrait studio at the Pentagon in Arlington, Va., Sept. 26, 2019. (U.S. Army photo by Monica King)

During the American Civil War there arose a class of General Officers on the side of the Union who achieved their rank not on the merit of military accomplishment or even by training but rather by knowing highly placed politicians. These men were awarded a rank in quid pro quo agreements with their political patrons. Many of these Generals proved incompetent and military failures. Others were borderline criminal in their negligence or actually criminal in the misuse of government funds.

The point is that no matter how incompetent or crooked, or weak, or stupid these individuals were not one of them promised to telegraph Robert E Lee and let him know if he was about to be attacked. Because to do so would be beyond incompetent, stupid, or even run-of-the-mill criminal it would be treasonous.

American Foreign Political Missteps 

(zerohedge). The Taliban says it found over $6 million in cash and at least 15 gold bars when it raided the home of a longtime Afghan national politician, Amrullah Saleh.

I’ll let you read the article. I have uncharitable thoughts about the US Administration and agencies that dispense palates of cash and gold to “build nations” and curry favor.

While I don’t completely disagree with the practice of paying off tribal warlords and even local politicians in order to ensure some degree of stability and peace for the US occupation. You have to ask yourself why the leadership of this goat-f%ck kept the practice up for an entire generation. It goes from being a short-term strategic payment to bridge a situation to an endless nightmare of buying loyalty in a place where you’re hated.  You buy temporary acquiescence and not love.

The missteps by US politicians have been legendary, exemplary was an abortive attempt by then SECSTATE  Hillary Clinton to buy back Stinger MANPADS from the terrorists that the State Department delivered them to in Libya/Benghazi. Chris Stevens arrived to “negotiate” after letting it be known that he arrived with gold. It turned into a heist.

The US State Department tried to spin it in every way possible to hide the bungling and since the Stingers came out of US Army Inventory at Clinton’s insistence instead of the CIA inventory, the Army was in no mood to help. All it would do is make them look bad too and if dead men tell no tales, so be it. Generals got more stars and retired to consult with the military-industrial complex.

The Swedes – Peddling the CB90 NG to the UK

I’m not trying to say what the British should or should not buy, but I’d take a hard pass on this one if I was the Admiralty. I have nothing against Saab or boats in general. The possibility of this boat being used in any military operation in the future is somewhere around zero.

The anecdote of Alexander the Great on meeting Diogenes…

“Thereupon many statesmen and philosophers came to Alexander with their congratulations, and he expected that Diogenes of Sinope also, who was tarrying in Corinth, would do likewise. But since that philosopher took not the slightest notice of Alexander, and continued to enjoy his leisure in the suburb Craneion, Alexander went in person to see him, and he found him lying in the sun.

Diogenes raised himself up a little when he saw so many people coming towards him and fixed his eyes upon Alexander. And when that monarch addressed him with greetings and asked if he wanted anything, “Yes,” said Diogenes, “stand a little out of my sun.”

It is said that Alexander was so struck by this, and admired so much the haughtiness and grandeur of the man who had nothing but scorn for him, that he said to his followers, who were laughing and jesting about the philosopher as they went away, “But truly if I were not Alexander, I wish I were Diogenes.”

  1. africa- i was talking to some of my nasty guard buddies, they are headed to somalia, djibouti, eritrea and another place they can’t pronounce, en mass. yep, africa is the next racket. i told them to make separate arrangements to get home w/o .mil help upon boots on the ground and carry hard currency. …another brigade going to kosovo. why are we still there? after 20 plus years if they still want to kill each other, let them. another group going to iraq. joe said we were leaving there too i thought….our entire state guard less one hq unit arriving back from kuwait will be deployed for 2022. hmmmm.

    • We could always send Big Army back to Syria, but it’s too well known as a hell hole with no clear objective except to be there and spend taxpayer dollars. Africa is not racist. Africa is pure (choke) from a woke perspective. We can nation build there to our heart’s content and “take up the white man’s burden” to save black Africa. What a wonderful crusade. Maybe we can teach the men there to be women and the women to be men?

  2. It’s my fondest wish that Milley take up residence for life about a 90 minute drive form me as an E-1 at the USDB. Maybe I shouldn’t let him off easy.

    • Send him home to China. I’m sure he’s already sold us out, so he wouldn’t be taking any secrets with him. They can keep him there.

      • On the other hand, he could go to Kenya, the Obama homeland. The Kenyans said that they didn’t want Obama back but they haven’t issued an opinion on whether Milley would be embraced. He could become the Chinese ambassador to Kenya. Best of both worlds.

        • Milley and his co-conspirators need their headless bodies hung off the walls of the Pentagon until their rotted and bird-pecked corpses fall apart. Their heads need to be embalmed or taxidermied and displayed either at the entrances to the ‘Gon, or in the hallways of the inner ring, or in the offices of the heads of the various services.

  3. The Dem’s may/likely will circle the wagons around Milley The Reprobate because most of them have some oddball tie to the ChiComs.

    This is getting more stupid by the minute.

    • The donkeys have to embrace the traitor Milley. He’s the point person for critical race theory in the US military, the key advocate for gender fluidity and for taxpayer-funded reassignment surgery as well as being — a traitor. Milley is a lot like Swallwell, who retained his seat on the House Intelligence Committee after he was outed as a traitor and a Chinese spy.

      Since Jo/Ho are on the Chinese payroll, you wouldn’t expect them to reprimand Milley for doing what their own masters would command.

      • Time to send him and the rest of them over to Kabul to repaint the George Floyd mural.

        Pelosi’s nephew – Mr. French Laundry Hair – has taken the victory lap with 43% of the vote in and Elder at 46%. So they know they stole the election…again. Thinking a trip abroad, or if the State Dept. denies the flight somewhere in the Cali desert, is necessary for that cretin.

        Can you tell the gloves are off for me?

        • The Music Group, “Five for Fighting” released a song called, “Blood on my Hands” that will be linked on the next blog post. I heard that Facebook banned it, so you know that it’s worth listening to. https://fiveforfighting.com/2021/09/13/new-song-blood-on-my-hands/

          People are slowly waking up, artists writing songs, people chanting “Fock Biden” at football games, and maybe to the theft of elections. Even Niki Minaj is tweeting concern about the vax, which reaches a completely different audience. You know that the oligarchs hate this sort of thing but that’s how the groundswell changes. The Newsom recall effort is another groundswell and the outrage at yet another rigged election will echo and build.

          • Facebook is one type of societal cancer, like in the movie “The Social Network” where the young Asian student says “It’s weirdly addictive”. Ya think that wasn’t on purpose.

            Minaj had the horrific audacity to say “Pray about it”, as if she shot their dog. The Fickle Left, can always count on them tuning on anyone at anytime for any tortured irrational reason.

            “Five Finger Death Punch” would be an appropriate response to these people.

  4. It’s the Future, where it is simply not possibly for a Democrat or one of their minions to commit treason. Conversely, if you aren’t one of those mentioned above, treason is automatic.

    Nice job with the Locust! It is very hard to recognize in that view.
    After this and the Tetrarch, are you gonna show us one of the Soviet para-tanks?
