(Patriot Insider) – Almost 90 retired generals and admirals have come forward and put their name on the dotted line of a letter that is demanding the immediate resignations of Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin over the roles they played in the troop withdrawal debacle in Afghanistan.
According to a brand new report from Infowars, the letter says, “The retired Flag Officers signing this letter are calling for the resignation and retirement of the Secretary of Defense (SECDEF) and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (CJCS) based on negligence in performing their duties primarily involving events surrounding the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan.”
“The hasty retreat has left initial estimates at ~15,000 Americans stranded in dangerous areas controlled by a brutal enemy along with ~25,000 Afghan citizens who supported American forces,” it continues.
The letter then goes on to claim the resignations of both Milley and Austin were only proper responses to such a hasty and obviously dangerous withdrawal operation.
“As principal military advisors to the CINC/President, the SECDEF and CJCS should have recommended against this dangerous withdrawal in the strongest possible terms. If they did not do everything within their authority to stop the hasty withdrawal, they should resign,” the letter goes on to say.
“Conversely, if they did do everything within their ability to persuade the CINC/President to not hastily exit the country without ensuring the safety of our citizens and Afghans loyal to America, then they should have resigned in protest as a matter of conscience and public statement,” it adds.
The letter then goes on to describe the “enormous” consequences of this disastrous operation, which not only includes the abandonment of American citizens in the country, but also that of billions of dollars worth of military equipment which can now be sold to help fund the Taliban’s activities.
“The consequences of this disaster are enormous and will reverberate for decades beginning with the safety of Americans and Afghans who are unable to move safely to evacuation points; therefore, being de facto hostages of the Taliban at this time. The death and torture of Afghans has already begun and will result in a human tragedy of major proportions. The loss of billions of dollars in advanced military equipment and supplies falling into the hands of our enemies is catastrophic. The damage to the reputation of the United States is indescribable. We are now seen, and will be seen for many years, as an unreliable partner in any multinational agreement or operation. Trust in the United States is irreparably damaged,” the letter reads.
“Moreover, now our adversaries are emboldened to move against America due to the weakness displayed in Afghanistan. China benefits the most followed by Russia, Pakistan, Iran, North Korea and others. Terrorists around the world are emboldened and able to pass freely into our country through our open border with Mexico,” the letter continues.
“In interviews, congressional testimony, and public statements it has become clear that top leaders in our military are placing mandatory emphasis on PC ‘wokeness’ related training which is extremely divisive and harmful to unit cohesion, readiness, and war fighting capability. Our military exists to fight and win our Nation’s wars and that must be the sole focus of our top military leaders,” the letter states, delivering a wallop to both Milley and Austin over their prioritization of ‘wokeness’ over adequate military training and readiness.
“For these reasons we call on the SECDEF Austin and the CJCS General Milley to resign. A fundamental principle in the military is holding those in charge responsible and accountable for their actions or inactions. There must be accountability at all levels for this tragic and avoidable debacle,” it continues.
And not only are folks calling for these two to step down from their positions over the Afghanistan debacle, but many are also demanding that Joe Biden be impeached for it too. Especially if he doesn’t clean out the “woke” Pentagon brass.
According to a report from Gateway Pundit, Sky News from Australia stated that if Biden does not start kicking out these “woke” leaders in the Pentagon, he should be impeached, as these individuals are also responsible for the mess in Afghanistan.
