After the presidential election and the January 6 riot on the Capitol, what did Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the US Army act was an attempt to stop a coup or treason when the president was still in the oval office? Make your own judgment.
My take is, put the political divergences aside, my instincts tell me that, as " shithole countries" political system and governance are slowly improving, the US politicians, federal bankers, and military staff are marching towards to shithole.
Read the points below:
1) General Milley expressed concerns about Trump's "trigger point" and told senior military officials they needed his authorization to launch a nuclear strike even if Trump ordered it, according to passages of “Peril,” a book from Woodward and fellow Washington Post reporter Robert Costa, which were reported by CNN.
2) General Milley had received a call from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi – who contemporaneously made public her demands that Milley “[prevent] an unhinged president from using the nuclear codes” – reportedly telling her “I agree with you on everything,” after she said Trump has “been crazy for a long time.” Milley told a number of top military intelligence officials, including NSA director Paul Nakasone and CIA Director Gina Haspel, to be on high alert and “aggressively watch everything,” according to the excerpts.
3) CIA Director Gina Haspel reportedly expressed severe concerns to Milley, telling him,” We are on the way to a right-wing coup. This whole thing is insanity,” and accusing Trump of “acting out like a six-year-old with a tantrum.”
4) General Milley called his Chinese counterpart, Gen. Li Zuocheng, on January 8 and told him, “We are not going to attack or conduct any kinetic operations against you,” even pledging to call Zuocheng “ahead of time” so a U.S. attack wouldn’t be a “surprise,” according to excerpts of the book reported by the Washington Post.
