Amid chaos in Afghanistan, military leaders bear no accountability for the deaths of U.S. troops, with some who it seems are instead focusing on their woke agenda.

The suicide bombing on Thursday outside the perimeter at Kabul airport killed 13 U.S. troops, many young men, amounting to the worst single-day loss in Afghanistan since 2011 under President Obama. At least 60 Afghan citizens were killed.

For a long time now, the military has become increasingly partisan. The programs and training they are implanting has had an adverse on morale and integrity. Senator Tom Cotton (R-AK) and Representative Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) set up an avenue for service members to send whistleblower complaints on “wokeness” they experience within the military.

In a hearing where Sen. Cotton brought up these complaints, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin admitted “I would also say that diversity, equity and inclusion is important to this military now, and it will be important in the future.”

On Sunday, Secretary Austin spoke to the situation in Afghanistan.

“It was very difficult to predict with accuracy. This all occurred in a span of about 11 days. Nobody predicted that, you know, the government would fall in 11 days,” Austin told ABC News’ This Week.

As the U.S. approaches 21 years in this war, we’re told that no one, including our top generals, could have predicted this. This response been insufficient for a lot of the administration’s critics, including Democrats who once defended the administration.

But when Joint Chiefs of Staff Chair Gen. Mark Milley states that he wants to understand “white rage,” the competency of these generals to effectively lead our troops is put into question. While this general’s concern for white rage plays into what conservatives’ have been criticizing as of late, the events of the past couple weeks have shown how consequential leadership is to our military forces.

More recently, Sergeant Major of the Army Michael Grinston sparked criticism when, hours before the Kabul terrorist attack, he tweeted:

President of the New York Young Republican Club tweeted:

Another tweet questioned the attention of our military.

Gad Saad sarcastically observed the reason China has refrained from attacking us.

Despite the attack the ongoing chaos in Afghanistan, the terrorist attack that killed our troops, and the leaders in charge of the military who are either incompetent or stood complicit in the decisions that have led to American deaths and beatings, as the Pentagon confirmed, there is no accountability.

One U.S. Marine, Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller, voiced his concern as an officer of the U.S. military demanding accountability for the conflict in Afghanistan that has led to the deaths of those young men.

Knowing that this video might jeopardize his career, Lt. Col. Scheller said, “I think what you believe can only be defined by what you’re willing to risk. I think it gives me some moral high ground to demand the same honesty, integrity, accountability from my senior leaders.”

He was subsequently relieved of his duty. It is currently unclear whether or not that means he was discharged or placed on leave.

As the Washington Examiner reports, according to Jeff Goldby, a 20-year Army veteran and an adjunct senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security, said that this video could have been a violation of military rules.

“I’m not sure the last time I’ve seen an active-duty battalion commander openly and directly challenge senior military officers, including the Commandant of the Marine Corps, in this way,” Golby told Stripes.com.

Nevertheless, it comes as no surprise that despite Scheller’s release, a viral video of an Army Staff Sergeant saying that she’ll shoot Americans during martial law if they disobey her.
