When Will Heads Roll?

2021 August 30
by bc3b

Joe Biden has made one blunder after another in the Afghan exit. Key questions:

  1. Were these decisions made by Biden after he disregarded sound advice of military leaders?
  2. Were the decisions based on bad advice from military leaders?
  3. Was it a mix of #1 and #2?

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Matt Milley is in the eye of the storm. Milley is one of the most woke of all US military leaders. He is strongly in favor of Critical Race Theory training for the US military and it is already in place at West Point. When testifying before Congress a few weeks back, Milley also pushed his concern about white rage (aka white supremacy) citing the January 6 protests. When he wasn’t addressing systematic racism or white supremacy, Milley was quoting other Democrats’ talking points. This occurred when the Taliban was overrunning Afghanistan.

Some have long questioned whether flag officers like Milley and Director of Naval Operations Admiral Michael Gilday aren’t so focused of racism, LGBTQ+ issues and other social engineering that it became their primary focus (rather than military preparedness).

The New York Post is calling for Milley’s resignation:

The Afghanistan disaster is on General Mark Milley’s watch.

Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs, must go.

President Biden claims that the military advised him to close Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan and instead use Kabul’s airport to evacuate Americans. They were the ones who said the Afghan army would hold, that the pullout would go smoothly.

If Biden is telling the truth, this disaster is on Milley’s watch. Or Biden is lying (the more likely scenario, based on what sources inside the administration are saying) and Milley failed to do his duty and push back against a commander-in-chief who is making deadly decisions. Either way, he is derelict in his duty — and must either take responsibility for what went wrong or tell Americans the truth about their president.

Biden was reportedly so intent on drawing down the number of troops in Afghanistan to less than 1,000, a force not large enough to secure Bagram, that we gave up its strategic advantage. Not only that, but we left in the dead of night, abandoning weapons and vehicles to the Taliban and demoralizing our Afghan allies. That forced Marines to protect the perimeter of Hamid Karzai International Airport, a situation that the parent of one of the 13 service members who lost their lives compared to a “turkey shoot.” Biden should never have left the safety of evacuating Americans in the hands of the Taliban, or put these young men and women — 11 Marines, one Navy member and one Army soldier — in such danger.

It’s hard to think of a worse way to handle this pullout. Biden likes to blame former President Donald Trump’s deal with the Taliban for the situation, but even setting aside that Biden could have negotiated to extend the deadline, he’s been president since January. Milley has been chairman of the Joint Chiefs since 2019. What have they been doing all these months? The US could have organized an evacuation from Bagram and held the base until Aug. 31 or longer, if necessary.

Instead, Milley spent his time defending critical race theory to Congress, while Biden ate ice cream.

And the response of the administration since? Let’s talk about COVID, climate change, putting our kids in debt for generations. Biden on Sunday angrily turned away from reporters when he was asked about Afghanistan, saying he’d only talk about Hurricane Ida. Anything but the mistakes that were made.

Biden and the generals cannot bear to hear the truth. Marine Corps Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller posted, “People are upset because their senior leaders let them down and none of them are raising their hands and accepting accountability or saying, ‘We messed this up.’ ” For this, he was stripped of command. Scheller knew he was risking his career, but honesty was more important.

Will Milley show such courage?

    Remember, Biden’s goal is to spread ghettos to suburbs so places like Downers Grove and Arlington Heights can experience a “Taste of Chicago.”

    The Lt.Col. who dared to ask for [gasp] “Accountability” from his superiors has already had his head roll.

    “Justice” is swift if you criticize the ruling class.

    I imagine that morale in the Marine Corps is at its lowest ebb since the fall of Saigon…maybe lower.

    I’m expecting to see lots of stories like this

    https://freebeacon.com/national-security/taliban-executes-afghan-folk-singer/
    The Taliban executed an Afghan folk singer days after its spokesman warned inhabitants “music is forbidden in Islam.”

    The militant group killed Fawad Andarabi on Friday at his family’s farm about 60 miles north of Kabul, according to the Associated Press. Members of the Taliban had visited the singer days before to search his home. Andarabi’s son said his father played a bowed lute called a ghaychak and sang traditional songs about Afghanistan.

    “He was innocent, a singer who only was entertaining people,” Andarabi’s son said. “They shot him in the head on the farm.”

    Taliban Flying Newly Acquired Blackhawks and Hanging People From Them

    Breitbart:
    The Taliban put a senior member of the Haqqani family in charge of higher education in Afghanistan on Sunday, soon after the Biden State Department’s astonishing, and verifiably false, assertion that the Taliban and the Haqqani Network are entirely separate entities.
    The Haqqani education minister immediately announced girls will no longer be allowed to study in the same classrooms as boys.

    NYPost:
    After being criticized by the White House for airlifting people out of Kabul, Erik Prince, co-founder of defense contracting firm, Blackwater, slammed back by disclosing that his contractors once rescued Joe Biden from Taliban territory after he got lost in a sudden snowstorm, and he has the photos to prove it!
    Guess who else Erik Prince rescued in that 2008 snowstorm?
    John Kerry and Defense Secretary, Chuck Hagel.

    Hey, mullet, yeah, Biden is as cold and callous as they come. I think his dog was a political prop. It’s so hard to think of anyone leaving those military dogs behind. IMO they’re betting on PR spin to get them out of it, but D.C. believes everyone thinks the way D.C. bubble-people do.
