Outrage over Gen. Milley’s call with a Chinese general is only growing. Millions of Americans, including prominent lawmakers, are demanding action over what he did, if the reporting is indeed accurate. The top military official admitted he promised to warn China ahead of time if we ever invaded.
Despite calls for resignation and court martialing, the political appointee is defiant. Sleepy Joe refuses to respond; God only knows if he’s even aware of what’s going on.
As pressure mounts against this disgraced general, he uses the one word that will spark further debate. From Fox News:
The top U.S. military officer said Friday that calls he made to his Chinese counterpart in the final stormy months of Donald Trump’s presidency were “perfectly within the duties and responsibilities” of his job…
Milley on Friday offered only a brief defense of his calls, saying he plans a deeper discussion about the matter for Congress when he testifies at a hearing later in September.
Poor choice of words, Milley. As Americans grow increasingly angry with this general’s call with China, he claims it was a “perfectly” appropriate call.
Call me crazy, but I don’t think promising to warn China about an attack, just before the attack, is close to “perfect.” Anyone can tell you that, had Milley done this, it would have put thousands of American lives at risk. Millions, even, if China decided to preemptively attack.
Worse still, even just saying this to China could have triggered a reaction. As some experts warned, this could have motivated China to take any number of actions against the United States.
“Perfect” is that last word we would have used to describe what could only have been a politically motivated move against then-President Donald Trump. And it harkens back to what Trump said about his “perfect” call with Ukraine, which triggered the left’s first impeachment.
Democrats had no problem going after the president over that “perfect” call. Will they sit back and doing nothing, after Milley seems to have betrayed the president and the nation to China?
- General Milley defended his call with China some are calling treasonous, instead calling it perfect.
- Milley refused to resign, despite numerous calls for his court-martial.
- Milley promised to warn China if America planned to attack.
