Nancy Pelosi seemed to suggest to Milley that he should usurp the President's powers as Commander in Chief by subverting any Trump order to launch a nuclear attack. Was this just theatrics or a subornation to treason? Did the Democrats, having fantasized about removing the President from office by force collude with Gen Milley to do exactly this? Did they plan a military junta to save democracy?
As a public servant, sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution, Gen Mark Milley is obliged to answer these questions. Most men of honor would have stepped down in shame over the Afghanistan debacle alone. Integrity, not to mention the law, demands that if the allegations make by Woodward and Costa are true, he should immediately submit himself to disciplinary action and removal from his position in the U.S. military.
The longer wait to stand up for our rights and the more rights we cede, the harder it will be to get them back.
Though Marx and Engels would say the object of socialism is as a stepping stone to communism, where there are no social distinctions, and the state would simply “wither away”, we know from real life that those who claim the mantle of philosopher kings expect the rest of us to bestow upon them rights and privileges not available to to common folk.
Americans are fair-minded people, even if not all of their elected representatives are. When properly apprised of the facts, they are bound to look at the articles of impeachment against Trump as deeply flawed and unfair according to long-held common values.
