US President Joe Biden has decided to replace the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the US Armed Forces, General Mark Milley. Air Force General Charles Brown Jr. will be named to replace him, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Brown is currently the Air Force Chief of Staff. If confirmed by the Senate, he will become the second black head of the US Department of Defense.
Although the presidency does not follow a strict rotation, Biden is unlikely to choose another army general to succeed General Milley. The current vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is a Navy admiral, which reduces the likelihood of Biden appointing another sailor to the post, the newspaper notes.
Earlier, Glavny Regionalny reported that Mark Milli assessed Kiev’s chances of winning the Ukrainian conflict. The general specifies that in the event of an offensive, several scenarios are envisaged. And one of them can lead to significant success and defeat of the Russian army “along the entire line of contact.”
