First up, never forget that Tom Cotton is a traitor to the government of the United States. It was fine with him and his party to go behind the back of the Commander in Chief when that US President was Barack Obama. It was fine with Tom Cotton and the Republican Senate to NEGOTIATE WITH IRAN as if they were entitled to do so, because Obama.
And now that General Mark Milley is the punching bag on the Right because he literally saved the country from a madman whose staff provided show tunes to keep his rage in check, Tom Cotton wants to talk about loyalty and endorsing a forever war in Afghanistan.
We’re out, Tom. Because President Biden upheld Donald Trump’s agreement with the Taliban. Something you won’t hear on Newsmax.
But thanks for an educated and erudite military command, because Milley was ready for the BS Tom Cotton was dishing out. Cotton asked Milley why he had not resigned when DONALD TRUMP arranged for a removal of military forces from Afghanistan. Oh wait, Tom Cotton was only talking about Joe Biden actually doing it.
Sabrina Siddiqui tweeted this image of Milley’s answer, which is fire:
Cotton, a former Army officer, should well have known this little detail. So it was merely a gotcha question for his own political benefit. Way to go, Gen. Milley.

The civ-mil divide runs deep and wide if a senator thinks a service member, let alone a general, can ‘just’ resign/quit.

In other words, “SIT YOUR A** DOWN AND NEVER QUESTION ME ABOUT SOMETHING YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT!!” 🎯

The difference between an upstanding leader like Gen. Milley and a boll weevil like Cotton tells you everything you need to know about this cold civil war. Media, one side IS BETTER and it’s ok to say that.

What Cotton forgets is that Trump is the one who negotiated Doha and demoralized the Afghan military. Funny how the GOP refuses to bring up the fact that this was all started by Trump and inherited by Biden.
