Mattis and Sessions both still have me in the cooler. Not sure when I can warm up toward their “service” to this president and his agenda.
They screwed around doing some good things, just enough to keep the hounds away, but on major structures for Trump and his agenda it was all day long, either one of them was AWOL for months, or the other was grumbling to the media, but both signaled plenty of virtue, while basically defending the beast they wouldn’t engage.
Mattis & Trannies.
Sessions & DStaters.
I never got it, regarding these two.
Sorry, I am not really on board with the bash Mattis crowd. It seems to me that he acquitted himself well with respect to military engagements-I felt that he was respectful to everyone.
I particularly liked when he said we don’t do stunts, and outlined the positives of military’s border support. I also liked the incident with 100% casualty of Russian Mercenaries.
Regarding other issues, even if I don’t see eye to eye, I just am not going to ridicule a man who has served his country for so long.
I think Wictor has an excellent article on this resignation - the General accomplished his mission.
The statement Because you have the right to have a Secretary of Defense whose views are better aligned with yours on these and other subjects, I believe it is right for me to step down from my position, is receiving a lot of commentary.
Wictor proposes that the General’s statement is a bit of Military Disinformation.
Here’s a summary(with my commentary on some items) and link to the whole article by Wictor:
A few points:
1. Our allies captured the LAST ISIS stronghold on 12/13.
2. 12/19 Pentagon said that we were NOT withdrawing and ALSO THAT WE ARE - Keep enemies confused and in the dark
3.New Base has been constructed west of former Islamic Stronghold.(WE WILL BE NEARBY)
4. Notes a CHANGE in mission statement on website:
from PROVIDING LETHAL force to defend and sustain
back to prior statement of: forces to DETER WAR and ensure security.
In other words, Mission Accomplished War Over
THIS IS A BIG SIGNAL TO ME-IN KEEPING WITH THE COMMS WE HAVE COME TO LOOK FOR.

I always find Wictor to have an interesting point of view. YMMV
