Retired Colonel Milburn, a former Special Operations Central deputy commander, does not have a very high opinion of today’s military leadership.
According to Milburn, the debacle what was the Afghanistan withdrawal should have resulted in mass resignations.
With not a single high-profile military leader resigning in protest, Milburn believes Biden has nothing but lapdogs atop the military food chain.

There was a time that rather than serve under incompetency, military leaders would offer to tender their resignation.
This also served as a way to make the American people aware of the problems in leadership.
To that point, Milburn stated, “Can you imagine if those three or even two out of three had offered their resignation?
“You don’t think that might have caused the president to think twice?”
He continued, “I think they’re products of a culture that has arisen within the U.S. military that simply does not encourage innovative thinking or creative thinking.
“That rewards perhaps obedience above all else.
“I think within our organizations, the Joint Force, we sadly have a culture that does not always see the most strong-willed creative thinkers rise to the top.
“It’s a culture that I think is amiss.”
Milburn went on to wonder who, if anyone, will hold these men accountable for the botched withdrawal.
He later added, “That is the time to stand your ground and simply say, ‘no boss. I’ll give you my resignation.’
“That should be our collective expectation of these people.”
That used to the expectation, but when transgender surgeries and CRT become more important than military training, well, I think all of our expectations are now lowered with the current class of military leadership.
