SJW Military: GENERAL IN CHARGE OF US NUKES SAYS HE CAN DEFY AN ‘ILLEGAL’ STRIKE ORDER FROM TRUMP

InfoWars

In the wake of recent Senate debates on the US President’s supposedly unquestionable authority to start a nuclear war, a top general says it’s not as easy as pushing a red button. All the US top brass, himself included, are trained to disobey “illegal” orders.

Air Force Gen. John Hyten, commander of the US Strategic Command (STRATCOM), said he would not blindly follow whatever order comes from US President Donald Trump, noting that the law of armed conflict that prohibits the use of disproportionate force and inflicting unnecessary suffering would be a higher authority when it comes to decision-making.

“I provide advice to the president, he will tell me what to do. And if it’s illegal, guess what’s going to happen? I’m going to say, ‘Mr. President, that’s illegal.’ And guess what he’s going to do? He’s going to say, ‘What would be legal?’ And we’ll come up with options, with a mix of capabilities to respond to whatever the situation is, and that’s the way it works. It’s not that complicated.”

“We’re not stupid people. We think about these things a lot. When you have this responsibility, how do you not think about it?” he said.

In his capacity as STRATCOM commander, Hyten oversees the US strategic nuclear triad, consisting of long-range bombers, land-based intercontinental and submarine-launched ballistic missiles.

It comes amid a debate over whether certain checks and balances should be put on the president’s authority to use nukes. At the Senate’s Foreign Relations Committee hearing on Tuesday, the first one of this kind in over 40 years, some senators raised the alarm about Trump, who has threatened to unleash “fire and fury” against North Korea, pulling the nuclear trigger.

“We are concerned that the president of the United States is so unstable, is so volatile, has a decision-making process that is so quixotic, that he might order a nuclear weapons strike that is wildly out of step with US national security interests,”Senator Chris Murphy (D-Connecticut) said.

Adding fuel to the fire, Republican Senator Bob Corker, who last month accused Trump of running the country as a reality show on course to a third World War, noted that “once that order [to launch a nuclear strike] is given and verified, there is no way to revoke it.”

Although the former STRATCOM commander Robert Kelly attempted to reassure the committee that the US military would not comply with an order that infringes international law, some US media responded to the hearing by stoking alarmism.

The Los Angeles Times published a column by Doyle McManus, which had the question and answer in the headline: “Is there anything stopping Trump from launching a nuclear strike? Nope.”“Nobody can stop Trump from launching nukes — and it’s freaking senators out”Vice News’ Alexa Liautaud wrote.

Since Trump came into office, the US has taken a much harder stance on North Korea with the US leader regularly trading verbal barbs with the with the pariah state’s leader, Kim Jong-un.

While Trump threatened to “totally destroy” North Korea in his notorious speech at the UN, calling Kim a “rocket man…on a suicide mission,” Pyongyang responded by threatening to reduce the US to “ashes and darkness,” and North Korean state media “sentenced” the US leader to death.

Hyten’s attempts to calm the waters, however, might not come entirely from a desire for world peace. His own well-being is at stake as well.

“If you execute an unlawful order, you will go to jail. You could go to jail for the rest of your life,” Hyten said.

  1. Joseph Dunford must immediately RESIGN or be FIRED. The SJW wouldn’t dare make this comment unless he had backing in the Pentagon. Next, fire every single Obama appointment.

    Start firing at the top, and work your way down. BRING BACK ALL THE FLAG OFFICERS Obummer fired. God Bless Trump and all patriots who serve. This insubordination HAS GONE TOO FAR.

  2. I don’t believe him. Where was HIS leadership in allowing 911 to happen. There were TWO nuclear weapons smuggled out of a Texas storage area, that then caught fire; those two thermos-barbaric bombs were placed UNDER each of the Twin Towers in New York. And in the Pentagon Cheney had ordered the buildings Anti-Aircraft and Missile defenses shut down. Remember that one soldier keep calling 50 miles out, 40, 20, 10 miles out he goes and DIRECTLY ask VP Cheney if the “Order still stands” and Cheney replied have you heard any different; so that soldier followed an ILLEGAL order. But it is NOT the soldier’s fault; but I do wonder if he HAD turned the Anti-Missile shield to ON and blown that missile in the middle of the field instead of causing more damage to the inside of the Pentagon. There was already MANY MANY explosions within the wing where NAVY SOJ was conducting audit trying to find the $2.3 Trillion missing from the previous year; BEFORE that missile even hit. That soldier would have been a HERO to the American PEOPLE, if Cheney had not personally shot him. Which while Monetta was there I do not think he would dare.
    911 was a WHOLE BUNCH of people who followed ILLEGAL ORDERS within the DOD, DIA, CIA, DOS, NSA, FBI, FEMA, not to mention Israeli Mossad, Saudi and Pakistan ISIS. Until THAT Nuclear officer is WILLING to come forward NOW, and say that the original 911 Official False Fake Fairy Fable is a LIE and that our OWN government colluded with Israeli Interests, Saudi Arabia to bring 4 buildings down in NYC, a multiple bombings of the Pentagon, and shooting down a drone in Shanksville PA. Until this Nuclear officer has the courage to come forth, along with EVERY other officer, or enlisted men and women who KNOW that 911 WAS and REMAINS a False Flag to wage Word War III. Because this “War on Terror” is, in Flat Fact, a World Wide across the Planet WWIII. And if USA stays in Syria, keeps pushing Russia, China, North Korea, Nigeria, Yemen, Iran, and does Zionists bidding WE will STARTED and continue WWIII.

  3. ,,,,this general spoke at a canadian forum,,,,canada has gone rosy red,,,,north korea is bloody red,,,,if PRESIDENT TRUMP DOES NOT CENSURE THIS OUTRAGEOUS AND OUTSPOKEN GENERAL, it will prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is not in control of the military and what i believe happened on 22nov63 was part of a grand plan of the subversive communist elements within. JOHN F. KENNEDY, who left us this week so many decades ago, is not forgotten.

  4. Problem with this is that he doesn’t control the actions of the launch crews in the silos, the boomers, and I doubt the crews that man strategic bombers. So disobey general, I’m sure there are MPs coming for you once your refusal to obey orders are known.

    We all saw what Obama did to flag ranked officers who didn’t goose step to his orders. Over 400 of them.

  5. Kinda hard to be incarcerated once we are crispy critters, yes??

    Think the General will be highly encouraged to retire.

    Nice pension, I would take it.

  6. “I provide advice to the president, he will tell me what to do. And if it’s illegal, guess what’s going to happen? I’m going to say, ‘Mr. President, that’s illegal.’ And guess what he’s going to do? He’s going to say, ‘What would be legal?’ And we’ll come up with options, with a mix of capabilities to respond to whatever the situation is, and that’s the way it works. It’s not that complicated.”
    The arrogance astonishes. This must be one of the results of having emasculated men in the Presidents chair for so many years consecutively. Now that someone is acting like an actual commander the PC brainwashed aren’t handling it well.
