Top Pentagon Generals Warn Enemies Not To Attack As 150 Bases Impacted By COVID-19

Authored by Jason Ditz via AntiWar.com,

With a growing number of reports showing the Pentagon absolutely getting pounded by coronavirus, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark Milley issued a statement warning that US readiness remains intact, and that no nation should test the US.

This at a time that as AFP reports, 150 bases as well as aircraft carriers have been affected:

“We’re still capable and we’re still ready no matter what the threat,” Joint Chiefs Chairman General Mark Milley said Thursday. “I wouldn’t want any mixed messages going out there to any adversaries that they can take advantage of an opportunity, if you will, at a time of crisis,” he added. “That would be a terrible and tragic mistake if they thought that.”

At a time when coronavirus is creating all sorts of opportunities for cooperation and peace-making, the US military is going in the opposite direction, growling like a wounded beast at a time when it is struggling with the virus.

Obviously a reaction to reports of thousands of US military coronavirus cases, with hundreds on the USS Theodore Roosevelt alone, Milley’s insistence that the US remains ready rings hollow, as a desperate response to ships and bases which are clearly partially or wholly out of action because of the virus.

With the US having such a large military, it isn’t to say that the US is particularly vulnerable right now. Still, offensive capabilities simply must be taxed by 3,366 Defense Department infections. The USS Theodore Roosevelt is in an extended dock because almost 10% of the crew is infected.

Underscoring this reality, the Pentagon has been moving to dial back information sharing on the outbreak within the military, trying to avoid letting potential enemies know which sites are most vulnerable and hit hardest by the virus.

  1. U need more men and women call some vets back n 2 help I’ll b 1 that will b willing 2 go fight again 4 this great nation

  2. I am a 66 year old paratrooper from Viet Nam era. I would have no problem going to war to fight for my country, WIFE, family, and freedom. The only problem is the Democrats would not support that reaction from Patriots because they want to see our great country fall to an enemy so they can say ” See President Trump failed” How sad a time it is for our country. “Airborne”

    1. That is probably why we will end up fighting them. They have run over us in many areas and are now under all out attack. mode. Lock and load.

      1. I AGREE! 1000% TIME FOR TREASONER DEMOCRAPS TO DIE!! TO ALL PEOPLES IN USA GET WITH THE PATRIOTS OR GET THE HELL OUT!! OR PERISH!!

  3. The greatest threat to America, other than the Demrat Party is our big mouths. It started with that Navy Commander whining on national TV and news about his men being sick. This should have been kept Top Secret. I am convinced that the Chinese released this virus intentionally to keep the worlds economy down. I believe they did not want the rest of the world to surpass them and I also believe that they wanted to hurt trump. Does it not seem so very convenient that this virus took off during our election year? I do not really believe in coincedence.

    1. TOTAL AGREEMENT THERE!! AS WELL AS THEIR OWN POPULATION CONTROL. CHINA HAS HOWEVER NOT THOUGHT THIS THING OUT TOO FAR! THEY DID WHAT AMOUNTS TO “SHOOTING YOURSELF IN THE FOOT, IN THIS CASE BOTH FEET”
