I wonder if Jared will get this gig too? Why not, he is an expert on nearly everything else, why not running the Pentagon?

It really doesn't matter who replaces Mattis. Trump only listens to the voices in his head.

His cabinet serves at the pleasure of the President. If the Secretary cant carry out the vision, he did the right thing to step down.

Remember - Trump has said he knows more than the generals. So Mattis really isn't needed when we have a prez whose vision exceeds a lifetime of a general's knowledge & experience.

If that is the case, wouldn't we all agree with goob's point?

Trump has said he knows more than anyone about everything. He doesn't need a cabinet at all.

Well, indeed he does know more!!! How You ask? Well, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity told him of course!!! Aren't we lucky to have such qualified and righteous advisors working behind the scenes for Us???
Hey, it is an extremely sad and dangerous place we have come to where we have an incompetent, sociopathic, narcissistic leader that is acting under the advice of buffoonish, cartoonish, amoral, idiots rather than listen to 2 Patriotic, incorruptible, competent men like Gen. Mattis or Sen. John McCain. It is just unfathomable to me!!!! I would think any sensible, rational American would be taking serious pause here and looking at WHAT THE F*CK is going on...........Peace.......joe

Perfectly accurate post. However - see FOX and Trump's 30 something % to 40 something % base. That tells you all you need to know.

The letter.

https://d3i6fh83elv35t.cloudfront.net/static/2018/12/mattis-letter2.pdf


Remarks: I certainly hope the "international order" he is referring to is not the same as the new world order, because that is what certain people have been calling it lately 'the international order'. I do not think General Mattis or most of those in the military understand the differences in beliefs of the groups in Afghanistan.

Isis wants to complete the agenda Al Qaida began of worldwide transference of power and governance to an islamic state that is Shariah compliant to their understanding of the Shariah. They want a one world caliphate.

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (aka THE Afghan Taliban) want only to live within the borders of Afghanistan according to their beliefs. They believe in state sovereignty and did not go into Pakistan to fight along Al Qaida forces and the Pakistani Taliban. They want peace in their country and would be amenable to a two state solution where the secularists who are currently running many of the provinces can continue to do that, as long as you leave them alone to live in their lands, the provinces where they are in control.

The Pakistani Taliban did not initially have global ambitions, but since we kept shooting at them and bombing them they eventually digressed and aligned pledging allegiance to Isis. The only people our troops keep shooting at are the Afghan Taliban in Afghanistan. This has led to the incursion of Isis troops into Afghanistan. The Afghan Taliban will NOT align themselves with nor join Isis. They are of no threat to anybody if we just stop our campaign against them. If you want to stop Isis's incursion, help reinforce the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Trump is not wrong to pull 7,000 out of the 14,000 troops we have over there out of Afghanistan. Other countries have another 8,000 troops there.

As to Iraq - we created that problem. If you just left Saddam alone, there would have been no destabilization there and no Isis stronghold/base there from which they went to Syria.

Bashar Al Assad is comfortable with Putin and IF he thinks he needs help, Russia would help him. We really have no say or responsibility to be in Syria in the first place. We were actually asked to leave at the height of the fighting for control of Raqqa.

People can disagree with Trump, but they do not understand the dynamics of what is going on in these countries.

Gina - Have you ever thought about getting a job in the Trump administration? Like Trump, you think you know more than the generals. You have unconditional loyalty to Trump regardless of what he says or does. Like Trump, you think Hannity is a smart and handsome man. You both fall for every conspiracy theory you hear. You both love Putin. Seems like you would be a perfect match. And if it doesn't work out, like everyone who leaves his administration, you will know Trump's true nature and will come to your senses.

The Generals are very good military strategists. They know their stuff, however in this situation they do not know the beliefs of all the Muslims on the ground and that is the problem. If you stop one group, another fills in the vacuum. We cannot perpetually stay in any country to keep national security there. At some point the groups will war with each other and the most successful one will assume power. This has been going on for thousands of years.
