This essentially says that the US Military has no faith in its Commander-in-Chief and one would guess will not obey an illegal order to it or the National Guard….
Their troops have been told to follow the Constitution not President Trump?…They are announcing the Joe Biden WILL BE the next President…
They ARE telling Donald Trump and those who want a fight next week….We will NOT act against the will of the American people in the November Election…We WILL defend the country from Domestic enemies….
This from the Joint Chiefs!
The United States’ top military officers on Tuesday condemned the “sedition and insurrection” that took place at the Capitol last week when supporters of President Trump overtook the building.
“We witnessed actions inside the Capitol building that were inconsistent with the rule of law.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley aand the rest of the Joint Chiefs wrote in memo to the force.
In addition to Milley, the memo was signed by Vice Chairman Gen. John Hyten and the chiefs of the Army, Navy, Marines Corps, Air Force, Space Force and National Guard.
The memo comes almost a week after rioters stormed the Capitol while Congress was meeting to certify Joe Biden’s victory in the presidential election, forcing lawmakers, staffers and journalists to find secure locations to hide in as the mob ransacked offices, assaulted Capitol Police officers and stole property.

Military officers typically avoid commenting on anything that can be perceived as thrusting the military into politics. But the assault on the Capitol in an effort to overturn a democratic process has shaken Washington and the nation.
The attack also raised questions about the extent of extremism in the military and among veterans after several rioters were identified as former members of the military….
General Milley has been in one or two situations where President Trump and his people ‘used’ him to do things that his fellow generals and troops where N OT happy with and were NOT right for the country and the military….
