Posted on 08/24/2017 4:49:27 AM PDT by RoosterRedux
Monday night President Trump announced to the Nation the recommitment of Americas will, military, and diplomatic might to the fight in Afghanistan. He signaled to all that this Nation will not back away from hard sacrifice to ensure our safety. Undoubtedly, you will hear the hue and cry from the Presidents detractors recalling a need to withdraw from Afghanistan and their rallying cries of failed campaign promises and abandonment of America First. Do not listen to them.
Make no mistake, I have been with the President since nearly the beginning, well before he was the Republican Presidential nominee. I wrote on the campaign trail that he was the leader who will take us forward and I still deeply believe that today. In the less than 24 hours since Presidents Trump speech, there have been dozens of articles and opinion pieces touting that this is more of the same. They could not be more mistaken. They are overlooking the most important difference: President Donald J. Trump is the Commander in Chief.
Over the past several months, I have been privileged to see and listen as the President has taken the time for counsel and to weigh different options for Afghanistan and the region. He has heard from his commanders in the field and, yes, he has listened to his Generals. I have heard him ask the tough questions and demand accountability from those responsible for leading our men and women in harms way. He has listened to strong recommendations from his National Security team and has engaged them in deep and thoughtful discussions.

We're on the move.
Say no more. Unless he was a girlie-man general appointed by Obama to that post, he's as solid as the bedrock below the Chicago Trump Tower.
Great to hear these perspectives...
Yet another general at Trump’s side.
Trump is to be feared. Fear of America is a very good thing
Kellogg is Army Special Forces, with Silver Star, Bronze Star with “V” Device, and Air Medal with “V” Device from service in Vietnam.
Obama sat on the Fence ,because he liked it
A true military leader who sees the forest for the trees and is not afraid to support Trump’s agenda. We need thousands more to carry the torch for Trump.
Certainly we all know there will be glitches and road blocks along the way to ultimately getting out of the middle east hell holes but we could revert back to odumbo’s way of doing absolutely nothing, other than his support for the enemy.
