#1 I take it then, General Keene is also comfortable with the Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff exercising command authority over the nuclear arsenal ?

#2 the calls were in fact not secret, and that they were coordinated with multiple high-level Pentagon officials.

Oh, OK. So it was just a routine conspiracy by the military to undermine a sitting president. I feel better now. Kind of like an FBI investigation but with different uniforms.

#3 Miley said he would inform the Chinese before the US attacked. Could be sugar coated lies but that quote sounds like treason.

#4 Milley's actions are defended on the grounds that he thought Trump mentally unstable and unsafe to have the authority and responsibility vested in the office. That does not exonerate him - there is a legal procedure for replacing the President under such circumstances, but of course it was not pursued.

#5 If the rule book is followed, short of Amendment 25, the CJCIS is not delegated to make that determination.

#6 The excuse of thinking that Trump was mentally unstable would hold a bit more credibility if Milley thought the same of the incoherent Biden.

#7 Insubordination is okay when He does it, because he has stars?

#8 Who is "sensationalizing" the reports? Rantburg, Alt-Right Blogs, white supremacists, or the 'traditional' media?

That's an honest question, and the answer, I think, would be illuminating.

#9 Everyone on FauxNews eventually belongs on MSLSD. Except maybe Tucker and Gutfield, and I don't have a good long term feeling about either one.

#10 Did Milli Vanilli also warn the Taliban in advance of imminent attacks, or did they kick his/America's ass fair and square? *Spit*
