#1 Mullen noted that American neighborhoods are our homes ― not "battle spaces," as Defense Secretary Mark Esper described them over the weekend.

Tell that to the dead and wounded Admiral, and thank you for watering the seeds of mutiny and military overthrow.

#2 Must be a pretty good joint...

#3 "Our fellow citizens are not the enemy and must never become so," Mullen wrote.

Not all of them, but some are.

#4 Way to take whatever honor and dignity of your career and flush it down the toilet. Obviously you were never a loyal American, merely a mercenary in the employ of the Deep State and their traitorous enablers.

#5 I remember Admiral Mullen. He's the guy who wanted to let Iran have nukes.

#6 "Our fellow citizens are not the enemy and must never become so,"

Sort of missed that big event from 1861 to 1865 hasn't he? /rhet question

#8 People who want to burn my business and / or kill me are not my fellow citizens.

#9 Park Police already took credit for the incident, no tear gas was used, and the clearing of the area had nothing to do with Trump.

So Mike Mullen just accepts media spin and lies after three years of media spin and 8 years of spin and lies while W was in command? He is a total moron.

#11 Pentagon just caved and pulled back it's forces
Soros seems to own a lot.

#12 You'd think Mullen would have a clear understanding of POTUS duties under the Constitution but then again Mullen is not President, is he?

#13  "I cannot remain silent"

One of many things that the overclass and teenaged girls have in common.

#14 The Pentagon is pushing back on reports that active-duty troops are being pulled out of the Washington, D.C., area amid widespread protests over the death of George Floyd.

According to a spokesman for the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, “all Title 10 active-duty forces remain in the National Capital Region.” The comment refers to the 1,600 active-duty military police from Fort Bragg, N.C., and Fort Drum, N.Y., and a battalion from the 82nd Airborne, also out of Fort Bragg, who have been staged outside D.C. at Andrews Air Force Base and Fort Belvoir. - cite

#16 MD today:

Instructionsgiven by the military departments to our troops before the Normandy invasion reminded soldiers that "The Nazi slogan for destroying us…was ‘Divide and Conquer.' Our American answer is ‘In Union there is Strength.'"

Except, er, the brownshirts are homegrown, and these violent anarchists garbed in black are now driving a violent insurrection. It is not a righteous movement for justice and national unity.

The enemy is BLM-Antifa. It is they who are tearing this country apart.

Please open your eyes, General, and focus on the real target here. It's not OrangeMan.

Gosh, if only someone had told Lincoln that, we could have avoided a big mess.

#19 Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people—does not even pretend to try. Instead he tries to divide us.

Apparently, General Mattis slept thru the Obama years.
Pity, it's always painful when people you admire say stupid things.

Put not your faith in (perfumed) princes, nor in the son of man.

#21 Mattis didn't sleep through the Obama years, he enjoyed them, just like all flag officers, and the FBI management.

All heroes have feet of clay, being human. Conservatives, more than anyone, should understand this.

And that thing SteveS said about perfumed princes, too.

Agreed, which makes me wonder why so many of them fall into that trap.

I seem to remember a lot of Nikki Haley enthusiasm (even around here) despite plenty of red flags (so to speak).

#24 What I don't get is generals fooled by the duplicity of the media. That's two today. They should know the media lies. They should now the President doesn't directly order things like crowd clearing. They should know it was the Park Police and not even secret service. Inexcusable ignorance.
