Declare war yes, ordering an attack though I believe falls within the purview of the President. Normally he would likely consult with others, Congress, the military before doing so but in the case of a clearly insane individual he might well have ordered an attack in the belief that he could then declare martial law and permanently install himself as dictator for life. Milley’s precautions against this were warranted and reasonable. There were a LOT of people who believed not only that trump was capable but likely to take a scorched earth approach to his defeat. Some feared it others welcomed it but few people really believed he wouldn’t.
We could get them out, we’ve had a bit of practice getting people out from under tyrannical regimes lately…but, as they say, practice makes perfect?
Milley’s sworn duty is to protect the Constitution and the United States. He did that. Sometimes duty requires you to go outside the rules and this was unequivocally one of those times.
Can we do that? Cause I’m down for it.
“Nothin’ to see here…move along. Move along!”
It’s the ONLY way they can retain power.
Interesting that the mentally broken Presidents are all repugs.
I keep hearing that “people” are accusing Milley of treason and demanding he resign/be fired. Thing is I ONLY hear republicans saying that.
Disgusting. Clever but disgusting
Because he LIKES those things.
