This week, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley is the center of attention as Senate Hearings examine the chaotic withdrawal of the U.S. from Afghanistan and Milley’s calls to China during the Trump Administration.
Fresh back from several weeks in Brazil, this week we lead off with an analysis of why Brazilian supporters of Jair Bolsanaro are donning American flags while calling for a military takeover. Elsewhere, political shifts are occurring in Germany, and recent FBI data is reporting an unusual spike in murders in 2020.
However, our main focus this week has to do with Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley, who in the final days of Donald Trump’s presidency made calls to China’s military leaders to assure them the United States did not plan to attack them… and now some Republican leaders are calling for his resignation. We examine all of these stories, and several others in this week’s episode of Middle Theory.
