WNU Editor: When the military leadership decides to evade civil authority. In my book this is a military coup.
Regarding Gen. Milley’s two calls to his Chinese counterpart. What would happen if China used this information to launch its own attack? They have been threatening to do so for the past two years.
This is an incredibly dangerous precedent, and General Milley and those at the Pentagon who have taken these actions should be held accountable for their actions as soon as possible.
I also feel that President Biden’s authority to launch a nuclear strike is also limited.
