   The IQ of Donald was on display:   He read the letter 3 days ago, but didn't comprehend that it was a put-down of him, until yesterday.     We knew he didn't like to read, but now we learned that he has zero comprehension skills.    WOWZER!

Gordyfl,

Mattis was going to stay until the end of February. I believe Trump heard something negative on Fox News and fired him.  Gordyfl, love your post as always.

williamb39198,

Thanks so much for your post as well. Like the famous Laurel and Hardy Brothers have said... This is another fine mess the Republicans have gotten us into.

Thank you for highlighting the other important points in Mattis letter. Once you explained it again, boy did I get it. I just picked up on the fact that the letter did not close with a traditional salutation.

Thank you for pointing out that a lot was being said to those that are listening. Once again this only points out that trump does not want to hear from anyone who makes sense and is trying to counteract trump’s irrational policies and his trying to pay off debts that he has accrued with foreign dictators. 

trump is not a patriotic president. He is willing to throw our country under the bus for his selfish, self centered reasons. 

His actions do not deserve admiration.

Why is everyone hung up on Syria. Get past one item and look at the full story The Sec. laid out in his letter. There is a long back story and Syria is only one small part. The Sec. laid out some very important items he was against. here are some: 1. Using Troops at the Border, Using Troops to build the Trump internment camps, Plans to use the troops to build his wall and take the money out of the military budget, Treatment of troops such as the Trans ban, Trumps efforts to end NATO, and other alliances, Trump making it impossible for anyone from the US to deal with allies on problems, How N. Korea was handled, No US military policy on world issues (changes every day), Lying to allies, Defence Dept, opponents. One very important last item. Why was the AF General who was to be the new Chairman of Joint Chiefs passed over by Trump and an Army General named. Could this be the Trump take over of the military uniformed services by a Trump lackey like we have seen in the JD dept. I am sure there are a lot of things we do not know. Syria is just a tiny part. Watch the back story as you have missed about 90% of what really is going on.

   I suppose that many here are happy to leave the middle-east mess behind.   It has cost the US trillions.   What many appear to want to know is what else.

   As some have finally revealed, the only winner was Erdogan and the MIC - as donald also gave Erdogan the green light to buy more weapons along with the greenlight to do some genocide in the region.  

 

      Mattis explains pretty clearly, is that what Donald has decided is to play a zero-sum game and the US is no longer to be respected and trusted when dealing with other countries.    So RW should be estatic as they are blinded by their own ignorance while FP is driven by long term view - even Donald's FP guru John Bolton is more aligned with Mattis than Donald...but he will go an tuck tail and hide until his boss is less irrational.

Very professional letter from someone who obviously serves for the welfare of the military. A true servant leader. The best kind. And someone who obviously knows both how to lead, and the intricacies of how to lead in government.
