General Mark Milley attempted to hit back at his critics on Friday over calls he allegedly made to his Chinese counterpart during the final days of the Trump Administration in which he allegedly promised to let the Chinese Government known ahead of time if the US intended to carry out military action against them.

As Fox News reports:

The top U.S. military officer said Friday that calls he made to his Chinese counterpart in the final stormy months of Donald Trump’s presidency were “perfectly within the duties and responsibilities” of his job.

In his first public comments on the conversations, Gen. Mark Milley said such calls are “routine” and were done “to reassure both allies and adversaries in this case in order to ensure strategic stability.” The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff spoke to The Associated Press and another reporter traveling with him to Europe.

Milley has been at the center of a firestorm amid reports he made two calls to Gen. Li Zuocheng of the People’s Liberation Army to assure him that the United States was not going to suddenly go to war with or attack China.

Descriptions of the calls made last October and in January were first aired in excerpts from the forthcoming book “Peril” by Washington Post journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa. The book says Milley told Li that he would warn Li in the event of an attack.

Milley promised that he would soon provide a more detailed defense of his actions during planned testimony before Congress scheduled for later this month.

Milley the CATHOLIC traitor can join the company of Benedict Arnold, another famous CATHOLIC traitor. Yes, John McCain CATHOLIC TRAITOR (the songbird) is in the same area! Please do not forget the only US citizens who have been convicted of war crimes, Lt Calley CATHOLIC traitor and Capt. Medina CATHOLIC traitor.
Vote for ANY CATHOLIC and you vote for the destruction of the USA.
Catholics may be citizens, NO Catholic is an American.
The Vatican is a foreign, hostile NATION that is at perpetual undeclared war with the USA.
Look south for proof!.

Not sure why the ranting about Catholics especially the phrase “no Catholic is an American” I have dual citizenship born an American snd baptized Catholic. Based on what you said Protestants aren’t Americans either. Such a silly comparison!!

But those he identified are traitors. Their religious affiliation is not of interest, it is the politics and their own actions that were questionable even today with Miley the Traitor. But for Catholics I would say their current Pope is not their best to date. He is weird!
