General Milley’s tough talk is a day late and a dollar short

By Ray Starmann

US Army Chief of Staff, General Mark Milley, walked out on stage at the US Army’s annual meeting this Tuesday in Washington D.C, puffing out his chest full of medals and barking like a rabid drill sergeant.

Milley warned the enemies of this nation: Russia, China, North Korea, ISIS and Iran; “I want to be clear to those around the world who want to destroy our way of life, and that of our allies and friends, the United States military, despite all our challenges, despite our off-tempo, despite everything we have been doing, will stop you, and we will beat you harder than you’ve ever been beaten before. Make no mistake about that.”

The US military isn’t off-tempo General, the US military has no tempo with Obama as its commander in chief.

He also admitted that the US Army’s readiness to fight had been eroded recently.

“Our readiness to fight a war against a high-end, near peer adversary has eroded in the last 15 years as we fought and continue to fight against terrorists and guerillas in Afghanistan Iraq and elsewhere. We were highly successful in ripping apart Saddam’s military in 1991, ejecting him from Kuwait and we shattered his army in 2003. Similarly, we destroyed the Taliban and Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan in very short order.”

Comparing the US Army now to the Army that won Desert Storm is like comparing the physical capabilities of a NFL football player with a grandmother in a nursing home. Also, the US Army that invaded Iraq in 2003, while smaller and more tech heavy, was not an army that was being destroyed by Marxist social engineering.

Milley beat his chest some more and rattled on:

“Other countries – Russia, China, Iran, North Korea – went to school on us. They closely watched how we fought in ’91 and ’03. They studied our doctrine, our tactics, our equipment, our organization and our training and our leadership and in turn they revised their own doctrines and they are rapidly modernizing their military today to avoid our strengths and hopes of defeating us at some point in the future.”

Yes, general, they went to school on us and we went to sensitivity and diversity training and we are going to pay with the blood of our youth, for the insane social engineering and the treason that you and your fellow senior leaders in the US military allowed to happen. If you are looking for those to blame general, you need only to look in the mirror.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the US military is a feminized weakling, so emasculated by the Obama administration and so sensitive and politically correct, that it has become the laughing stock of the world.

This week, the tension between the USA and Russia was ratcheted up in a war of words and military provocation not seen since the Cold War.

The Russians know our military has been decimated under Obama; they know Obama is an intellectual weakling and that John Kerry is the modern day version of Sad Sack as Secretary of State.

Here are some of the developments in the last week:

The Russians are sending their top of the line S300 surface to air missiles to Syria. They also threatened to shoot down US aircraft over Syria in response to the US military’s call for airstrikes on the Assad regime.

The Kremlin also Tweeted an array of insults to the US, mocking our weakening role in Syria.

Our response; perhaps John Kerry will dispatch James Taylor to Aleppo with his guitar and a truckload of Kumbaya candles.

The Russians have continued to shadow and harass US aircraft across the world.

The Russians also stated this week that they would seek to establish new military bases in Cuba and Vietnam.

Yesterday, a Russian SU-27 Flanker violated Estonian airspace, while reports confirmed that the Russian military is sending Iskander-M missiles to Kaliningrad on a civilian freighter. It’s expected to dock in Kaliningrad today with its alarming cargo.

The Iskander-M system, called SS-26 by NATO, is the replacement of the Scud missile of American Gulf War memory. It has a range of 300 miles and can carry either a conventional or a nuclear warhead. An Iskander-M based in Kaliningrad can strike targets deep in Poland and across the whole Baltic region. Make no mistake, this is primarily an offensive weapons system.

Most distressing is the four day Emergency Management Drill the Russians have been running that involves more than 40 million citizens, more than 200,000 specialists of rescue units based in regions, organizations and enterprises, as well as some 50,000 units of equipment.

‘Management bodies and forces of the Emergency Ministry’s territorial bodies have been put on simulated high alert. ‘Representatives of federal executive authorities, heads of regions, local governments and organizations are taking part in the massive drill. ‘Emergency Ministry’s forces and facilities are fully engaged, including rescue military divisions, rescue units, paramilitary mine rescue units and State Small Vessels Inspectorate, fire departments and aircraft.

With all the Russian saber rattling and the war of words, enter General Milley and his barrage of threats.

Unfortunately, his tough talk is a day late and a dollar short. The great Cultural Revolution that Obama and his army of trendies think is so cool has burnt down the US military to nothing more than a façade of ash and wreckage.

The diversity and sensitivity and PC insanity plaguing our military: the transgender handbooks, the parade of male cadets in red high heels, the pregnancy simulators, the authorization to allow women to serve in special operations and in the combat arms, the lactation and breastfeeding memorandums for record have all been observed by our enemies and a conclusion has been made. We are pussies. Please excuse my French, but if the shoe fits…

You, General Milley, you and your fellow senior leaders let this all happen and now, when the boogeymen are coming out of the woodwork, when the Russian Bear is walking out of hibernation and looking for a fight, you are worried, for you now realize that you have been on duty while a Category Five Hurricane of absolute disaster has been brewing.

To keep your job, General, you openly and heartily supported women in special operations and in the combat arms and you double and tripled and quadrupled down by stating that it was a great idea to draft the nation’s young women, should a situation arise where a draft was again needed.

And, now, you are concerned and that concern causes you to bluster and make hollow threats. How exactly is the US Army, with its almost zero operational armored capabilities in 2016 going to fight and win a conventional war with the Russians in Eastern Europe?

The US Army has a big problem, for we have no armored capability anymore, because the Army has evolved into a light infantry force, where every officer over the rank of Second Lieutenant believes they’re Lawrence of Arabia.

This lends me to believe that any fight with the Russians will rapidly snowball into a limited nuclear exchange, which would devolve into global thermonuclear war.

The tension between the US and Russia is growing nearly every day. We are now in a situation where we need a strong military to do what the US military used to do very well, deter the bad guys so situations never arose like this.

Now, we have a hollow force, led by yes men, willing to march in lockstep with any lunatic directive that lands on their desks.

Unless Donald Trump is elected, the US military is going to lose the next war, or even worse, humanity will lose the next war, because we will all be buried in a tomb of radioactive ash thanks to the moral cowardice of the nation’s senior military leaders.

  1. He may talk tough but our commander – in – chump won’t back him. The new SECDEF is incompetent. Obuma has been firing a bunch of the old hands who remembered how to fight and is rapidly replacing them with new toadies who will follow the party line and not make waves. Our service branches are being pruned and the results are not good. When the LGBT bullshit is factored in, we will be lucky to survive in any conflict.

    I am grateful that I served when it was good to serve and to fight for right & freedom!

    Semper Fidelis

    • Sgt Stryker, I sincerely thank you for your service. Here’s my take on the LGBT thing. I think this will lead to less people voluntarily joining any branch of the military which will lead to reinstating the draft. Now that women will be allowed on the front lines, we will become less and less powerful. This country is done for.

  2. Syria and Ukraine are the same scenario as Serbia… NATO, under the direction of Jews Albright and Clark, bombed Serbia so the IMF could make loans for rebuilding and get control of Serbian iridium assets… while Saudi non-profit n.g.o.s kept the KLA terrorists well fed and well armed… just like ISIS on Syria…

  3. God help us if Hillary wins. If she doesn’t Trump must move fast because Russia and China know he will rebuild our military and this may be their only opportunity to defeat us, while we are at our weakest.

  4. “thanks to the moral cowardice of the nation’s senior military leader”

    Is anyone else reminded of the Wehrmacht leadership before and during WWII?

    (“spineless” comes to mind…)

  5. Why USA will go way over to Syria’s sky or near that space at the first place in order to start the war? Is the country has mental diseases?

  6. This situation was brought about by the American public. When you allow politics to set the agenda for the military you get the mission off track. Political correctness does not make for strong leaders or followers. Military leadership has been removed, subjugated, and neutered.
    I blame the congress and Senate for allowing our military field grade officers being removed. The majority of the elected officials are not military veterans and posess no working knowledge of tactics, training, supply, or equipment. They are basically traitors only interested in themselves and their flawed thought process. I have no respect for any of them or the people who support them.
    The American soldier is a unique individual. They are ready to train, endure hardships and give their lives if necessary for a country that shows minimal responsibility for their welfare. A ” Thank you for your service” is not the same as ” Congressman give them what they need or I’ll vote you out of office”. One is a feel good the other will get the job done.
    This next war will devastate the world.. Nothing will survive long term. All over a pipeline. Utterly ridiculous.
    Hunker down the fun is about to begin.
    God bless the American soldier and all the veterans.

  7. America is divided and asleep. Most Civilian Americans that would fight an invasion would not support BO or the Hag so after the military crumbles the Russians could walk in a make a deal. This would line up with the misunderstood prophecy of Fatima. If Trump wins the situation will cool down and disappear for a decade or more.

  8. Great overview Ray. We are about to embark on a one way street to a mass extinction event by war, economically, and if one hasn’t looked around, by the Eaerth changes taking place.

    It is the perfect storm. I see no way out for the human race. Too many triggers that will set off catastrophic changes to this planet and society.

    No one can stop what is about to occur, we are too close to armageddon!

    I believe the only way out now is by LOOKING inside of ones self and finding where the Truth really lies. That’s inside not out.

    Humanity is here at this moment in time for a reason. Some are awakened, most are not. Judgement is at hand for we are at the end of a grand cycle of 26,000 years, and it is time for a change.

    It is time for balance and harmony not war!

  9. Not only did they study tactics from 91 & 03, China especially, benefitted greatly from the Clinton administration. China was able to skip a generation of jet fighters, and rapidly close the gap in technology between it and America.

    It doesn’t help that America’s armed forces are at its lowest levels since before WW2, and some might say WW ONE!

  10. You failed to mention that the only reason the “Russian Bear” has awakened is because of the constant covert attacks by the Obama administration. Namely the ILLEGAL COUP in Ukraine created by Hillary Clinton, Janet Nuland and George Soros.
    In addition to that, you fail to even ask the question as to WHY we have ANY interest in Syria at all?
    As if ASSAD is ANY WORSE than any other ‘leader” worldwide.
    The REASON we are interested in REGIME CHANGE in Syria is a GAS PIPELINE.
    Period.
    I do not think this is objective journalism. It is biased and anti-Russian commentary.

    Carry On,

  11. WTF?! “our” MISleaders are destroying OUR way of life. They have TAKEN our Homes, OUR jobs, OUR way of life. They sent our young men to die & be maimed & crippled in foreign lands for NO GOOD TO America, and now they flood us with ILLEGALS & REFUJIHADI INVADERS. ………………… The Terrorists who killed our Troops are being brought here to live in THEIR HOMES.

  12. Dear Mr. Starmann, Thank you so much for your article. Our nations state of affairs is bleak, unless there is DIVINE INTERVENTION on our behalf. My Dad fought in Pelileu in WWII. He was PFC in the Army, and a purple heart recipient. I was always so proud of him and every other Veteran who took up arms for our country. I am so sad to see this what has happened to our country. God help us all, and America Bless God. Jackie F.

  13. Dear Fellow Americans,
    Let’s share some FACTS as I see them on the “Syrian No Fly Zone” that Hillary Clinton endorses as there are CRUCIAL POINTS being MISSED or IGNORED.

    1) Vladimir Putin is NOT a “Dictator” as Hillary Clinton and the entire US Corpo-Media portray him.
    Putin is an ELECTED LEADER with massive popularity and support in Russia and worldwide.(outside NATO/USA)
    Putin is not “murdering” anyone. (Unlike Hillary whose friends and associates have dropped like flies and total over 44 deaths “around her” so far)

    2) Russia and Putin are ALLIES of a SOVEREIGN NATION called SYRIA whose President was Democratically ELECTED as well.
    Russia was INVITED by SYRIA to help get rid of SUNNI MUSLIM TERRORISTS.
    There are NO “Moderate rebels”, and the term “Syrian rebel” actually refers to CIA funded, Sunni Muslim JIHADIST MERCENARIES (ISIS) mostly from Saudi Arabia, that are fighting the SYRIAN ARMY to illegally oust Assad and install a US/Saudi Arabia/SUNNI Muslim government in Syria.
    This is a Regime and Religion Change in a SOVEREIGN NATION!

    3) The USA has no business in Syria other than OIL and GAS for EUROPE!
    Again for review, Syria and Iran are SHIA Muslim nations, whereas ISIS, Saudi Arabia, UAE are SUNNI Muslim entities and this is ALL about Regime Change, a Religious War AND a GAS PIPELINE from Qatar to the Mediterranean Sea that “we” want to build THROUGH SYRIA, but Syria and Assad do not want this pipeline.
    Syria wants an Iranian Pipeline as Iran is their ALLY, not their enemy……Sounds fair, Right?

    4) The Elites in DC consider Syria as just another “Regime Change WAR for Profit” like most regional wars have been for the last 70 years.
    Granted, WAR FOR PROFIT has worked great for over 120 years for Standard Oil, Ford, GM, GE, Boeing, Raytheon, Krupp, Daimler, The Pope, The Queen of England and the entire Royal Family, The Clintons, The Bush Family, The Duponts, George Soros, David Rockefeller, The Rothschild Family Banking Conglomerates and MANY MORE ELITE FAMILIES and Corporations WORLDWIDE.
    But not so great for America or Americans.
    Or the REST of the WORLD for that matter!

    5) The Problem NOW is… Russia is not Grenada of 1983, Putin understands our Government’s “Regime Change Game” very well since he studied US doctrine as an Officer in the KGB.
    THIS IS IMPORTANT – Since the USA suspended “Diplomatic Relations” with Russia last week, and the Russians take this VERY SERIOUSLY.. (because in Russia… either you are “AT PEACE” and have RELATIONS, or you are “AT WAR” and DON’T).
    So… The USA is in a “De-Facto State of War” with Russia right now and no one has told us about it TRUTHFULLY, yet 40 Million Russians were on “Civil Defense Exercises” all last week.
    I guarantee you that the Russian Military and Civilian population are much better equipped, prepared and ready for war than we are.

    6) Lastly, As of 10/8/2016, It is now impossible for any US/NATO Military Aircraft of ANY TYPE to fly in Syrian airspace without Russian permission and authorization.
    This is due to the massive deployment of the S300/S400 and other very advanced and effective anti-aircraft systems over the last 6 months that are now fully operational.
    These systems are on the ground in Syria, in Port in Latakia, and offshore on multiple missile cruisers, frigates and corvettes in the Mediterranean Sea.

    **So…You have to ask yourself… Do YOU want to get NUKED for a gas pipeline and rich, warmongering Elites? If Not, Please copy and Share this message.

    Best Regards, Good Luck and Carry On,
