Jarome Bell Slams Gen. Milley, DOD for Catastrophic Afghanistan Failure
Virginia Beach, VA (August 16, 2021)– Republican candidate for U.S. House & former Chief Petty Officer (Retired) Jarome Bell is questioning the disastrous situation unfolding in Afghanistan, where the Biden Administration’s poorly-planned military withdrawal is rapidly collapsing.
Bell tweeted Friday:
Bell is a 27 year veteran of the U.S. Navy, retired from his position as a Chief Petty Officer. Jarome Bell is now a candidate for Congress from Virginia’s Second Congressional District which includes Virginia Beach and neighbors the nation’s busy Norfolk naval base.
Bell criticized General Mark A. Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff overseeing United States military.
Milley recently sparked controversy by promoting hateful, racist Critical Race Theory throughout the military, putting CRT books on his reading list of books military officers are expected to read. (CRT springs from Marxist ideology by dissolving individuals and considering only their class, race or other communal group.)
Bell says it is hard to believe any U.S. military withdrawal could be so badly planned and mis-managed. One starts to become suspicious about whether this operation is designed to fail.
Even when the decision is made to depart a theater of operations, the military operation would obviously manage the retrieval of weapons and materiel and the protection of military personnel and civilians. What we are seeing is nothing like a proper military draw-down.
The greatest objection Chief Bell proclaims is that the bungled Biden Administration operation left massive stores of weaponry, including 100 Humvees and sophisticated MRAP vehicles, but most alarmingly “US ScanEagle” drones.
Therefore, the US military will end up fighting the Taliban after the US withdrawal left the Taliban heavily armed with our own weapons.
Whereas former President Donald Trump declared that it was time for the U.S. military to come home, and even President Joe Biden agreed in principle, the catastrophic developments in the country now seems to demand a re-invasion of the country and never-ending war.
