Meet Trump’s Gods of War

Posted: February 24, 2017 in Uncategorized

President Trump chose some good people in his Cabinet and often some controversial figures in different positions.

But he chose two real American Warriors in his military advisers and left them to their own devices (so without imposing political agendas, which I do not think they would accept anyway)

Let’s introduce them

General Mattis, Secretary of Defense, Class 1950.

His career highlights are several

  • Commanding the Seventh Marine Regimen was one of the first to enter Kuwait against the forces of Saddam Hussein
  • He Commanded Task Force 58 in Afghanistan (First Marine to have such a command in history) and took Kandhar which was the capital of the Taliban
  • In Iraq he took part of the liberation of Al-Falluja and “re-wrote” the books about counter insurgency and the “hearts and mind”

He is a frontline General and his Marines can testify that directly in the various combat operations.

He is also famous for his blunt phrases in “Apocalypse now” phrases like

“We’ve backed off in good faith to try and give you a chance to straighten this problem out. But I am going to beg with you for a minute. I’m going to plead with you, do not cross us. Because if you do, the survivors will write about what we do here for 10,000 years”

He is a front line General not scared to take matters in his hands (and his marines can testify that directly). An American Warrior indeed.

Lt. General McMaster – National Security Adviser – Class 62

His career highlights are several

  • In the Gulf Wars,took by surprise,  with just 9 state of the art Abrams M1 tanks, destroyed over 80 Soviet and Chinese tanks part of the Iraqi Republican Army without any losses. This battle became a study case for the entire US Army
  • In Iraq, in Tel Afar, he practically re wrote the book on how to defeat the insurgency and Tel Afar was one of the first Iraqi town where Al Qaeda got defeated on the field.
  • He then became one of the main teachers in tactics and wrote several books that are must-read in the US Army.

Again, a full on warrior with a lot of “on the ground” experience and left thinking.

 

Definitely if you are Islamic State, Russia or China, you should be scared of this two American Gods of War.

This also shows that Trump can be depicted “strange” by the media – but is more clever than most thinks. Even in his most crazy speeches – he is not crazy – just pushing the boundaries.

Could President Trump make America great again? Time will show, but the odds are more even than people thinks.
