According to the Air Force Times on the 7th, after protesters broke into the Capitol, a Samsung general in charge of air force strategy issued a severe warning on Thursday local time: the threat facing the United States is greater than after September 11.
“What needs to be clear is: I personally believe we are in danger of losing our republic, the real danger,” Lt. Gen. Clinton Hinote, Deputy Chief of Staff for Strategy, Integration and Demand, tweeted.
In a series of tweets posted Thursday afternoon, Lieutenant General Sinot described the numbness, sadness and frustration he felt after the September 11 attacks.
He feels the same way today. However, the September 11 attacks mainly came from external threats. “Today, the division within the United States is our greatest threat, and state and non-state actors are subtly exacerbating this threat, and they want to see us weakened and smeared,” he wrote.
“More importantly, the 9/11 events were largely unexpected,” Lieutenant General Sinot said. However, after many signs that violence was imminent, yesterday there was still an attack on the Capitol, “we still can’t stop it”.
The internal differences in the United States pose a threat to the country. Although the September 11th incident is terrible, it has never posed such a threat.
He wrote that it seems unlikely that the United States is united as it has been after 9/11, but “we must do it.
The test of our generation’s leadership is now very focused: can we transcend personal interests and political differences and find a way out? We must do this, or this American political experiment will fail. I want to try…”
According to the report, Lieutenant General Sinoot is a U.S. military meritorious F-16 and F-117 pilot.
He graduated from the United States Air Force Academy.
He participated in the “Northern Watch” and “Southern Watch” operations to patrol the no-fly zone over Iraq.
He holds a doctorate in military strategy from the Aviation University of Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama and became the Deputy Chief of Staff of the United States Air Force last June.
