The strategic resolve of our nation, the United States, is being challenged and our alliances tested in ways that we haven't faced in many, many decades," Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley told the audience.That is rank nonsense. We are not being "tested" by anyone. To the contrary, Imperial Washington is provoking tensions and confrontations everywhere -- from the South China Sea to Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, the Black Sea, the Baltics and Ukraine---that have no bearing whatsoever on the safety and security of the citizens of Spokane WA, Topeka KS and Springfield MA.
I want to be clear to those who wish to do us harm … the United States military -- despite all of our challenges, despite our [operational] tempo, despite everything we have been doing -- we will stop you and we will beat you harder than you have ever been beaten before. Make no mistake about that.
