Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller, who has served the United States with honor for 17 years, has recently attracted the ire of top military brass with a five-minute video posted to social media.
The reason for the military leadership’s anger?
Scheller dared to request accountability for an utterly disastrous, tragic withdrawal from Afghanistan.
Scheller had become quite enraged not only at the way in which the withdrawal was handled, but also due to the fact that no one in the military appeared to admit error of any kind, in spite of the horrific misjudgment applied across the board.
Starting with the abandonment of Bagram Airfield, in which thousands upon thousands of ISIS prisoners were previously being held. Until the Biden withdrawal, that is.
Which is precisely why Scheller called out this airfield in particular on video.
“I’m not saying we need to be in Afghanistan forever, but I am saying, did any of you throw your rank on the table and say, ‘Hey, it’s a bad idea to evacuate Bagram Airfield, a strategic airbase, before we evacuate everyone’? Did anyone do that? And when you didn’t think to do that, did anyone raise their hand and say, ‘We completely messed this up’?” [Source: Fox News]
Thus far, no one has raised their hand to say that they completely messed up everything, although Biden and Co. sure seem happy to blame Afghani allies for all the chaos.
Scheller, however, knows where the real fault lies, and he is willing to risk an extended career in the armed services in order to say so.
“I want to say this very strongly. I have been fighting for 17 years. I am willing to throw it all away to say to my senior leaders I demand accountability.” [Source: Breitbart]
Unsurprisingly, Scheller was promptly relieved of his duties for telling the truth, though he subsequently resigned and made it clear that he is looking forward to a new revolution desperately needed in the nation … one that is based on hard work, diligence, and the truth.
“I don’t need a single dollar. I just need every single person that’s willing to go back outside the wire every single day to wear a blue-collar and just go into work every single day and feed their families. Those are the people that I need …
Follow me and we will bring the whole f—ing system down. I am honorable and you can ask any Marine who served with me for 17 years. I dare you to ask them all and find out what I’m made of. We’re just getting started.” [Source: Fox News]
Scheller, in other words, demonstrates far more leadership than Biden could ever hope to achieve, not to mention a broad range of other bureaucrats in power.
Scheller’s father, for instance, recognizes the inspiration Scheller gave to those with whom he served, as well as the discussions that Scheller’s video is likely to spark.
“People will follow him to the ends of the earth. He has put his life on the line for fellow Marines so putting his career on the line like this does not surprise us … It’s interesting that no one [in the military] has answered his call for accountability. Their answer was to fire him I guess. It’s a sad day for America.” [Source: The Blaze]
What’s also sad is the fact that Democrats praised Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman for “going against the ranks” and helping pursue an impeachment against Trump, yet they’re more than willing to sit by and let Scheller face punishment for daring to speak his own conscience.
After posting an image of Vindman and Scheller side-by-side, Trump Jr. remarked upon the rather unfortunate state of “military leadership” today.
“I remember when ‘military leadership’ wasn’t an oxymoron. It’s no wonder they can’t see the obvious coming anymore. The best bureaucrats and the absolute worst war-fighters are the ones that get promoted and make the decisions.” [Source: Breitbart]
Unfortunately, just about everything is an oxymoron within the Biden administration these days, and one can only hope for a massive red wave in the midterms …
