A 19-year US veteran has resigned from his position, giving up his pension and blaming it on President Biden. Lt. Col. Paul Douglas Hague, according to the Daily Wire, called Biden’s vaccine mandate “unethical, immoral and tyrannical.”
“The values that our nation was founded on, has lived by and thrived under, have been utterly decimated by the current presidential administration and the leadership of the military,” and denouncing the “ideologically Marxist takeover of the military and the United States government at their upper echelons,” Hague continued in a scathing letter.
“I cannot and will not contribute to the fall of this great nation and its people — those very Americans whom I swore to protect the liberty of at all costs,” he continued in his letter published to Twitter by his wife.
“These are the same values that we service members offer our very lives to protect, and now we are being used as tools to boost the numbers of vaccinated people to further distance and alienate those who, knowing the personal risk of the disease, have freely decided to remain unvaccinated,” he continued.
“I cannot be used as a tool against them, as they are my daughters, my son, my siblings, and my friends. They are the Americans that deserve my support and love.”
He then turned to the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan:
A complete lack of confidence in the presidential administration and secretaries directing the military — as demonstrated by the sudden and rash, at best, but pushing traitorous withdrawal from Afghanistan. The strategic decisions with regard to Afghanistan made by these people have not only unnecessarily cost the lives of 13 service members and many Afghanis, but have undoubtedly set our nation up for many more attacks both in Afghanistan and within our own borders. While the need to respond quickly to move friendly personnel out of harm’s way may have been necessary, I have concerns that appropriate screening of personnel could not have taken place with the chaos and haste of the operations — potentially leading to transporting threatening terrorists to friendly nations, including the United States. This entire situation was completely preventable by following the most basic tactics taught in all military schools to every Soldier in the Army. Establish security first and remove security last.
For our military leaders to overlook this at the level they operate gives reason for total lack of confidence, and even cause for concern that the best interest of the United States, Her people, and Her allies is not what is motivating those in positions of authority. What I view as an ideologically Marxist takeover of the military and United States government at their upper echelons.
