General Milley explains an oath to the constitution:

Newspeople avoid asking questions, so we’ll ask a few here.

Sending US Troops to Syria, Lebanon, Somalia, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, Bosnia, etc., is somehow defending the constitution?

What becomes of American rights and freedoms and the constitution when the US returns from distant lands without a victory?

Federal workers must take an oath to support and defend the U.S. Constitution. An employee of the Dept. of Agriculture must take the same oath as General Milley?

Whatever happened to the formal congressional declaration of war?

This would be the time to hear from elected leaders and top generals Re: lessons learned on all the issues that have doomed the Department of Defense track record for winning wars since DOD was established in 1949.

The formal congressional declaration of war would also be the time for a careful review of important issues such as: PTSD, suicide, GTMO/torture, use of contractors, war crimes, a $6.4 trillion price tag, lies about freedom, propaganda, dressing women to look like men, exit strategy, mission creep, nation building, reduction of traditional military benefits offered when people signed up to stay on for multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, who should register for the draft, planning ticker-tape parades and joyous celebrations, etc.

Do public schools still teach about Armistice Day?

America’s special form of cowardice: Why we never declare war anymore

“…failing to take a formal position on a war is politically useful for members of Congress. Punting responsibility for declaring or authorizing war allows politicians to avoid the appearance of opposing a war that might prove popular if successful, or supporting a war that would be unpopular if unsuccessful.”



The WWII costume worn by General Milley reminds us of a time before decades of undeclared/unwon wars stacked up.

The Department of Defense track record for winning undeclared wars goes back to 1949.
