Mark Milley of culpability in the disastrous withdrawal that has already cost the lives of 13 U.S. service members. 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 went on to say that the terrorist enemies of America had been emboldened by the show of weakness and ineffectuality in Afghanistan. They cited recent reports criticizing Milley for defending military training that included critical race theory." https://www.theblaze.com/news/generals-admirals-milley-austin-resign?utm_source=theblaze-dailyAM&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Daily-Newsletter__AM 2021-08-31&utm_term=ACTIVE LIST - TheBlaze Daily AM 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
