    I keep hearing from his defenders that General Milley prevented World War Three even a nuclear war.


    How?


    Couldn't you just as well argue that Milley's actions made war more likely by elevating the tension with Chinese leaders? Did Milley's actions have any impact on "tamping down" President Trump?

    There wasn't a war to prevent.

    Its all they have to dismiss treason. Someone needs to shake the left up to remind them we were not in any way in any danger of a nuclear war with China.
    But hey, when its all ya got, its all ya got

    This is going to get shut down or moved since there's no news article link.

    Exactly this. Nobody prevented me from going to France yesterday because I didn't try. Had I tried and someone stopped me, then that person would have prevented it.

    The left has to be outlandish. It's all they have.

    I don't speak for those "defenders", but I will let Milley defend himself as he has done.

    https://www.airforcemag.com/milley-defends-calls-to-china-in-keeping-with-duties/
    “His calls with the Chinese and others in October and January were in keeping with these duties and responsibilities conveying reassurance in order to maintain strategic stability. All calls from the Chairman to his counterparts, including those reported, are staffed, coordinated, and communicated with the Department of Defense and the interagency.”

    Would that include telling them if America decides to go to war, Milley would warn them up front? Just an FYI, Milley tried to pass off that the civilian staff appointed over him knew of his conversations until they made it very clear, they would have never ever approved of Milley making those statements.
    Now Milley is a liar and treasonous.

    Indeed, edit out whatever needs to be edited out for classification purposes, but a de-classification should establish if the players mentioned on the call were on the call, and that in fact it was a standard review and not an attempt to usurp the chain of command within the US Military.

    Their allegiances move much too fast to erect statues.
    The all hated Comey until Trump fired him. That took one single news cycle
    They all loved Bernie until he ran against Biden
    Cuomo was the golden child until they couldn't defend him any longer
    Hell, they were all swooning over Trump for 40 years until he came down the escalator and announced he would run for president.

    Apparently, generals can call our enemies and undermine our president, by telling them that our president is unfit, and "gee golly, I'll warn you ahead of time if our president orders any sort of aggression against you."

    Miley's mind can create any fanciful, imaginary, fictional thing that he believes Biden might do, call any of our enemies to warn them that he thinks Biden might wish to bomb them, and declare himself a hero for preventing a war. When we have generals allowing their conspiratorial minds to run rampant, then the sky is the limit.

    As I said, I will let Gen Milley defend himself. As to why he did it, there is an other civilian who was once 3rd in command that had concerns about Trump too.

    "Ryan studied them for weeks, convinced Trump had the personality disorder," Woodward and Costa write.

    This is the leftist “hair on fire” narrative to try to defend treason.

    More concern troll deep staters there. The honorably thing for them to do would be to resign, not commit treason.

    Doesn't matter why he did it. There are recourses if you believe a president is insane. Playing God isn't one of them. He never notified anyone about his so called feelings.
    He just decided on his own what would be done like warning China. Since Trump never asked or discussed anything about nuking China, that makes Milley a liar and treasonous.
    If doesn't matter what he has to say about it.

    And now Biden says he supports Milley. Well Joe you inherited a Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the nation's highest-ranking military officer, who thinks he's more important than the president of the U.S. and he conducts foreign policy. Not to mention he ignores the U.S. Constitution, the UCMJ, and his oath.
    ---Keep defending him, Joe.
    ---But keep looking over your shoulder, Joe.
    ---LOL

    Anyone want to post a clip or transcript link to Milley actually saying what he is accused of? innocent until proven guilty.... once again all there is is accusations...
    When are they going to set Pelosi down and start asking her what her role was in this treasonous "insurrection" ? ? While they are at it ask her what she knew and when she knew it about security on J6

    People defending Milley are more like co-conspirators. Assuming the evidence backs up the statements by Bob Woodward, who is an investigative reporter famous for revealing the Watergate scandal that took down Nizon are true- Milley committed treason. It makes no difference what he thought might happen in his own mind; he had a sworn duty to his nation, to his president, to the constitution and his oath- and violated all of that. Absolutely a crime and universally unacceptable conduct for a soldier. IF we didn't have lunatics in Washington contaminating the nation's values- Milley would be facing a General Court Martial right now.

    How did he "elevate tensions with Chinese leaders"? Contacting his counterpart in China to say that things are stable here (while our POTUS was having a very public nervous breakdown) is far from escalating tensions.
