Breathing rarified air.
I expect tens of thousands of these troops and sailors to balk when they get orders to kill citizens a government has labeled as "domestic terrorists"
You fucking idiot. The military is not going to be ordered to attack US citizens even if the dumbfucks are domestic terrorists like yourself.

Military is Issued Warning That No ‘Disrespect’ of Biden Will Be Allowed Over Afghanistan Debacle​

28 Aug 2021 ~~ By Kyle Becker
The U.S. military is warning both active duty and retired service members that no “disrespect” of President Biden will be tolerated.
The Office of Naval Intelligence’s Chief of Staff recently emailed service members to remind them of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. The UCMJ prohibits the public questioning of the President, the Vice President, Congress, or the Secretary of Defense, among others. The email was obtained by the Daily Wire on Friday. It reads as follows:
"Given the heightened political and social atmosphere surrounding Afghanistan, it is important to remind our uniformed personnel (active duty and reservists on temporary active duty) and military retirees of their responsibilities and obligations under Article 88 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice and Department of Defense Directive 1344.10. While it is vital to protect the constitutional right of freedom of expression for these groups, consistent with mission accomplishment, national security, and good order and discipline, it’s important to remember certain limitations. Namely, uniformed personnel and military retirees are prohibited from disrespecting senior government leadership (e.g. the President, Vice President, Congress, Secretary of Defense, Service Secretaries, etc.)".
The criticism of the U.S. ‘Commander-in-Chief’ has been non-stop since his August decision to withdraw the U.S. military from Afghanistan prior to securing military equipment and evacuating civilians.
President Joe Biden earlier ignored warnings from top generals and the Pentagon and proceeded with an immediate withdrawal. The ill-advised decision left thousands in harm’s way and ushered in the precipitous fall of the nation to the Taliban after nearly two decades of war. The decision has now led to the deaths of 13 American service members, as Becker News first reported on Thursday.
The military advice given to President Biden was detailed in a Wall Street Journal article following his initial speech on the Afghanistan withdrawal.
“The president’s top generals, including Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army Gen. Mark Milley, urged Mr. Biden to keep a force of about 2,500 troops, the size he inherited, while seeking a peace agreement between warring Afghan factions, to help maintain stability,” the Wall Street Journal reported. “Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, who previously served as a military commander in the region, said a full withdrawal wouldn’t provide any insurance against instability.”
“In a series of meetings leading up to his decision, military and intelligence officials told Mr. Biden that security was deteriorating in Afghanistan, and they expressed concerns both about the capabilities of the Afghan military and the Taliban’s likely ability to take over major Afghan cities,” the report continued.
Meanwhile, a Marine commander, Lt. Col. Stu Scheller, reports that he was relieved for cause after posting a viral video that called on the military’s top brass to show ‘accountability’ for their disastrous handling of the Afghanistan exit.
“People are upset because senior leaders let them down,” Lt. Col. Scheller said. “And none of them are raising their hands and accepting accountability or saying ‘we messed this up.’”

The U.S. military’s insistence that military officers not criticize the Commander-in-Chief is in accordance with the UCMJ. However, there is no action being taken at this time against ‘Woke’ soldiers who push radical causes on their social media outlets in violation of military code.
When it comes to U.S. military justice, all the troops are all equal. But some troops are more equal than others.

Hmm.... appropriate action taken by a tyrannical budding dictatorship...
Heaven forbid we call a spade a spade, or recognize incompetence when we see it. Officers and our men in the Military are not fools or chattels.. Bai Dung is wrong, he Knows it, the military knows it and the people know it! We will have to see if the people can remember it until the next election and get rid of this incompetent if not sooner.
Didn't we hang German soldiers after WWII for claiming they were following orders? Is the President and our Ruling General in the Pentagon demanding the same from our Officers, Non-commissioned Officers and soldiers to blindly follow the orders of a markedly man afflicted with Alzheimer's Dementia.
All in all it is the right of every American civilian or soldier to demand accountability of our C&C and Generals for their incompetence and cowardice in the face of our enemies. If not then we've become the Nazi's and Commies we've fought long to defeat.
America learned nothing from the Nuremberg trials.
Well that sucks because that is all I will ever have for that poor excuse for a Gompers reject.

Biden knows more than the Generals anyway
Actually. I think the Retard-in-Chief has his own military expert, named Hunter, that he goes to for advice....

You know, the guy that got thrown out of the Navy on his first day for being a crackhead!!!!!

They have a real dufus as Commander in Chief that is hated by 90% of the men and women in uniform so they are expecting a lot of criticism.
Not true.

The military has changed after years of Clinton and Obama. The ranks are packed with woke SJW types who could never meet the standards of only twenty years ago

That's hilarious surely they must realize that it's nothing but a mandate of empty words that will never be obeyed nor can it ever be enforced. It's interesting that Trump never made such a demand on the military cuz he suffered plenty of criticism from plenty of people in the military constantly.

Thats not accurate.

Retired military personel are indeed veterans but most veterans are not retired and the UCMJ does not apply once their contract is ended.
However if they are collecting a pension from the military I believe it can be called into question if they are accused of something aggregious in relation to that military. I'm just guessing here but I think that might be the one last piece of leverage that the US has over the retirees.

If they are collecting a pension they are by definition retired. Retired military personal are technically on reserve status and therefore subject to UCMJ although I doubt it has ever been invoked. Simple veterans however are not subject to it once their contract runs out and they collect no pension.

Biden kicking out the White Patriots and replacing them with filthy queers, transsexuals and affirmative action Negroes didn't help either.

It has, but primarily for actual criminal offenses. Not something like this.

There was one a few years ago that was recalled and prosecuted for child porn. If I remember right he was at that time retired and a military contractor. But recalling him let them "throw the book at him" in the way a civilian court could never do. And they have been recalled in the past for issues over security (specifically passing classified information).

That would make sense. One hardly ever hears of it of course.

Most pay about as much attention to military affairs as they do to the top players in the sport of Curling.

A military judge sitting as a general court-martial convicted the appellant pursuant to his pleas of two specifications of committing indecent acts, one specification of attempting to produce child pornography, two specifications of wrongfully making an indecent visual recording, and one specification of receiving, viewing, and possessing child pornography, in violation of Article 120, Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), 10 U.S.C. § 920 (2006), and Articles 80, 120c, and 134, UCMJ, 10 U.S.C. §§ 880, 920c, and 934 (2012). The military judge sentenced the appellant to nine years’ confinement and a dishonorable discharge. The convening authority (CA) approved the sentence as adjudged, but suspended all confinement over 96 months pursuant to a pretrial agreement.

It actually happens every year or so, as rarely is the offense of the nature that it gets the military interested in trying to handle the prosecution itself.

But 2 of the 3 offenses occurred when he was still in the "Fleet Reserve", before he was officially transferred to the Inactive Retired list. Add to it, the two children were his own daughter and step-daughter. So needless to say, military prosecutors took this very personally, and wanted to see him get slam-dunked.

And indeed he was. Loss of all pay and benefits, and now he gets to live the rest of his life as a felon and registered sex offender.

I do remember that one from back in the day.

Invoking UCMJ to prosecute an inactive retiree would certianly make sense for passing classified information as you mention. It probably has happened at one time or another. Yes I can also see them using UCMJ as a tool to go after a retiree for something really egregious like murder or child abuse.

There may be other exceptions as well. In general I can't see them applying UCMJ to a retiree for posting disrespectful comments about a president. The number of retirees out there is staggering. More than the number of people on active duty from all branches combined. At worst ( or best ) they might to make an example out of one or two but even that would cause a huge backlash.

Had they done this when Trump was President and the media and the clowns here on this website would be losing their shit.

However, they cannot enforce that on retired personnel. Active duty and reservists have always been subject to discipline for criticizing the Nations's leadership.
Wrong answer sir! Retirees are still subject to the UCMJ. A recent retiree was reinstated to active duty and charged with a rape in Japan before he retired.

Extremely doubtful that a retiree would be recalled for criticizing the President. After all, it is the Great American Pasttime.

The answer is not wrong. It is so rarely implemented as to be correct.

I guess you are unfamiliar with the terms "There is a first time for everything!"

If it applies to you, I suggest keeping your mouth shut unless it is anonymous.
