The hasty withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan and the mistakes made at the same time led to the discontent of the retired American military, who demanded the resignation of the head of the Pentagon. The retired generals and admirals wrote an open letter in which they demanded the dismissal of the entire leadership of the US Department of Defense.
An open letter signed by 87 retired generals and admirals was posted on the Flag Officers For America website on August 30. In it, officers demand the resignation of the head of the Pentagon Lloyd Austin and the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Millie.
The main charge is that the Pentagon leadership made mistakes that led to irreparable damage to the United States. At the same time, the high command of the US Department of Defense did nothing to correct the mistakes that the actions of the US President led to, and if Biden did not listen to the military, then they should have resigned even then.
Now, the letter stresses, the United States has lost $ 85 billion worth of weapons and equipment, in addition, "irreparable damage" has been done to the reputation of the American army, which was considered the most powerful in the world.
With the US fleeing Afghanistan, America's allies no longer see Americans as "reliable partners," and America's adversaries will take advantage of US "weakness" and oppose
- said the aftermath of the military, adding that Russia, China and Iran with North Korea benefited from all this. Pakistan has been added to the "retirees" of the US opponents. There, according to the authors of the letter, "they are also happy" about the defeat of the Americans.
Thus, the head of the Pentagon Lloyd Austin and the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milli must resign, "guided by their conscience." Whether Austin and Milia still have a conscience, it will be revealed in the near future.
