US Army Chief Thunders At Russia: 'We Will Beat You, Stop You - We Will Destroy Any Enemy'

"We will beat you harder than you have ever been beaten before - make no mistake about that!"

Speaking at an annual US Army conference last Tuesday called the AUSA, one of the major confabs for defense contractors sucking at the public teat and their subservient asslickers in the military, US army Chief of Staff General Mark A. Milley, almost shouted himself hoarse with a great chest-thumping chickenhawk performance.

Milley seemed to be rallying his colleagues to an oncoming global war, thundering with much bravado, that the US would crush all comers:

“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,”

“Other countries – Russia, Iran, China, North Korea – went to school on us,” he said, adding, “They studied our doctrine, our tactics, our equipment, our organization, our training, our leadership. And, in turn, they revised their own doctrines, and they are rapidly modernizing their military today to avoid our strengths in hopes of defeating us at some point in the future.”

Milley went on to bluster this oncoming brawl would “be highly lethal, unlike anything our Army has experienced at least since World War II,” involving fighting in “highly populated urban areas.”

“Make no mistake about it, we can now and we will … retain the capability to rapidly deploy,” he said, “and we will destroy any enemy anywhere, any time,” he added.

Calls from RI to General Milley's office asking him whether he didn't think that perhaps he and other undoubtedly patriotic American soldiers and officers were being manipulated by neocon political leadership to stumble into a completely unnecessary and manufactured global military confrontation went unanswered.

We would also like to ask the General whom he favors in the upcoming elections.
