I have been a critic of Trump since he was elected….there is very little about him or his policies that I can agree with on any occasion.
But pull up a chair and make yourself comfortable….I am about to do something that I seldom do….
But I have agree with him on some issues like ending our endless wars…I agree with the promise but not the actions that he has taken.
He opens his mouth and spouts crap almost daily. Most of it is either exaggeration or lies…..but on occasion he does say something that is accurate or almost accurate….like his most recent statement that has the media crapping on themselves to discredit his words.
What could he have said that I would jump to defend him over?
Let’s see shall we?
President Donald Trump blasted the Pentagon’s leadership on Monday for allegedly caring about the defense industry more than U.S. service members.
“I’m not saying the military’s in love with me – the soldiers are,” the president said at a White House news conference. “The top people in the Pentagon probably aren’t because they want to do nothing but fight wars so that all of those wonderful companies that make the bombs and make the planes and make everything else stay happy.”
Trump also said that his desire to withdraw all U.S. troops from Syria now that the Islamic State no longer holds any territory has put him at odds with military leaders.
“I said: That’s good; let’s bring our soldiers back home,” Trump said. “Some people don’t like to come home. Some people like to continue to spend money.”
A Pentagon spokeswoman referred questions about the president’s remarks to the White House. The Joint Staff declined to comment for this story.
(Task & Purpose)
Think about it……if there is not a revolving door at the Pentagon then why are most retired generals and such working for Halluburton, Raytheon or Lockheed-Martin?
Old soldiers don’t retire….they just move location and continue to do what they do…..and war is what they do.
