The commander in chief is impulsive, disdains expertise, and gets his intelligence briefings from Fox News. What does this mean for those on the front lines?

For most of the past two decades, American troops have been deployed all over the world—to about 150 countries. During that time, hundreds of thousands of young men and women have experienced combat, and a generation of officers have come of age dealing with the practical realities of war. They possess a deep well of knowledge and experience. For the past three years, these highly trained professionals have been commanded by Donald Trump.

To get a sense of what serving Trump has been like, I interviewed officers up and down the ranks, as well as several present and former civilian Pentagon employees. Among the officers I spoke with were four of the highest ranks—three or four stars—all recently retired. All but one served Trump directly; the other left the service shortly before Trump was inaugurated. They come from different branches of the military, but I’ll simply refer to them as “the generals.” Some spoke only off the record, some allowed what they said to be quoted without attribution, and some talked on the record. https://www.theatlantic.com/ma...ficers-trump/598360/

I'm still laughing at OldSalt and the AOC eating babies debacle. He must be one of those dems that thought it was real and started looking for recipes...and now  is feeling foolish and angry. We all had a good laugh about that one. Now he's posting from Vox of all sites! Here we go again...the left clamoring for war. This time they want to go after a NATO partner. We have like a thousand troops there and the left is trying to stir it up as if we had hundreds of thousands and were leaving poor little Kurds to die. You should read some the stuff they are claiming will happen! Man...you'd think we had a 1000 Supermen there!
