Top U.S. General Does Not Agree With President Biden's Claim That Climate Change Is America's Greatest Threat


US News and World Report: Top Military Officer Clarifies Biden’s Threat Assessment: Climate Change – But Also China and Russia 

A day after Joe Biden said the military told him as vice president that global warming represents America’s greatest threat, the Pentagon’s top officer offered a more traditional answer. 

The military's top officer asserted on Thursday that the biggest threats the U.S. faces are China and Russia, a day after President Joe Biden recounted to American troops during a trip to the U.K. that military leaders told him climate change represents the "greatest threat to America." 

"Climate change does impact, but the president is looking at a much broader angle than I am," Army Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told a congressional panel Thursday morning. 

"I'm looking at it from a strictly military standpoint. And from a strictly military standpoint, I'm putting China, Russia up there."

I must be completely stupid, but I have a hard time to believe that the best answer against the China threat is to cut the Defense budget.

The DOD budget is a bloated welfare program for fail generals, fail admirals and dipshit white suburban eggheads.

Cut it in half and then resources might be spent wisely.
