OPED-MILLEY-TRUMP-EDITORIAL-GET

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley participates in a news briefing at the Pentagon on May 6, 2021, in Arlington, Virginia.

America’s top military commander justifiably feared for the sanity of his boss in the final days of Donald Trump’s presidency and took steps to circumvent Trump’s authority in case he attempted an unprovoked nuclear strike or other belligerent action.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman, Gen. Mark Milley, clearly sidestepped all notions of civilian control over the military and, if reports are confirmed, that could cost him his job. But the nation and world owe him a debt of gratitude for intervening to contain a clearly unhinged chief executive.

After 4 years of one chilling written account after another of corruption, disgrace, incompetence, cruelty, and pathology in the White House, this account of General Milley's actions to save the country from a possible nuclear catastrophe by a deranged president is the most chilling. " "Now he's not seizing power," Woodward said of Milley. "He's putting in precautions to make sure, if Trump's going to blow up the world or do something that's against American interests or in fact against Trump's interests, he's going to at least be there at the table saying, ‘No!’"

As an average citizen who cares, I believe it was the only option for our nation's top general whose oath is to protect Americans and their country.

Yea, Buddy

"unhinged", LOL.. It's never OK to commit treason.
