Good Riddance to Mattis (Again)
Given the fact that America hasn’t won a war since 1945, is it perhaps time for us to stop lionizing every military general as if he’s Patton or MacArthur?
Perhaps Secretary of Defense James Mattis was a good leader in the military – many who served under him say nice things about him – and maybe not. But we have a sneaking suspicion that America will be just fine after Mattis’ resignation; that America will not be harmed in any way by pulling the troops out of Obama and Crooked Hillary’s Mideast misadventures; and that Mattis will probably show his true colors in a couple of months when he lands a gig as CNN’s newest “foreign policy expert.”
The story, in a nutshell is that President Trump announced that he is pulling all US troops out of Syria.
Mattis, a neocon warmonger, is in a huff because he kept urging Trump to keep America in the globalists’ “forever war” in the Middle East, so he turned in his resignation letter.
Unlike most the foreign policy establishment in DC, President Trump recognizes that a “big one” is coming with China. Whether we like it or not, China is building up its military at a rapid pace in hopes of 21st-century global dominance.
Trump recognizes that keeping the military bogged down in rinky-dink regional conflicts like Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere is not preparing America or the military for a large-scale conflict like the one that is coming.
The media, once again forgetting that the American people elected Donald Trump as president and not the random figures who make up his Cabinet, want you to think that this is the most awful thing to ever happen.
Some outlets are referring to Mattis’s resignation, and the removal of troops from Syria, as grounds for impeachment. This seems odd since the New York Times and its ugly siblings were all against sending troops into Syria back when Obama and Hillary started Syria’s civil war to begin with.
In fact, the New York Times thought it was perfectly admirable for Obama to pay signing bonuses to ISIS for every foreign fighter they recruited to the Syrian theater.
Mattis served during Bush and Obama’s Middle East mayhem for more than a decade. What is his legacy, considering that America is about to lose his wisdom as Secretary of Defense?
Male troops wearing red high heels and “pregnancy vests,” so they understand gender discrimination better. Transgenders in the military. Plummeting troop morale. Christian pastors fired and drummed out of the service unless they compromise their faith.
Not a single war won. We’ve been in Afghanistan for 17 years. How’s that going?
Obama fired any military leader who didn’t go along with his transgender madness. But Mattis stuck it out until 2013, when Obama finally canned him.
Regardless of how you may feel about James Mattis, should his disloyalty toward President Trump and the American people who elected him count for something?
Mattis was far worse than disloyal to President Trump. According to the Gateway Pundit news site, Mattis was engaged in talks with a group of DC insiders who wanted Mattis to run against Trump in the 2020 primaries.
The swamp’s plan, according to an insider who provided the damning documents to Gateway Pundit, is for Democrats to impeach Trump before 2020.
The Republican wing of the swamp will then hold an open primary in 2020, “just in case.” Mattis has been considering a primary run against Trump since at least May of 2018, according to the group that provided documentary proof.
If Mattis truly despises President Trump this much, he should never have agreed to serve as his Secretary of Defense. It’s not as if Trump’s disdain for US involvement in the Bush/Obama/Clinton wars was a big secret.
He told us on the campaign repeatedly that Americans should not be dying for Syria’s civil war.
Syria will have to clean its own mess up. The Middle East will continue to be a big hot regional mess long after the president brings the last soldier home. No matter how much “democracy” Mattis and his ilk try to spread in the Middle East, this won’t change.
Trump values the lives American troops too much to throw them away on another one of Obama’s bungles – and he should be applauded for bringing them home. As for Mattis, he should try not let the doors of CNN hit him in the rear-end when he walks in to accept his new job.
