The Mattis way of War: Meet our new Secretary of Defense

He must have been the near perfect candidate, why else would the progressives tried to stall him nomination? Rhetorical.
By Alex Pappas

Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis visited Capitol Hill last week and gave Congress an important message

He told lawmakers that President Trump had authorized him to decide how many American military personnel should be deployed in Afghanistan

This is good news if there is to be anything like a sustainable peace there.

For too long, the military has been unable to send more personnel than the amounts decided arbitrarily by Obama, who was obsessed with building a legacy as a peacemaker rather than with doing what would have been effective.

This forced the Pentagon to keep a low troop presence in Afghanistan, but it was not a path to stability, let alone peace.

The caps were akin to Obama’s declaration that the Iraq War was over, when all that was over was Washington’s commitment to the benighted people of that country.

Obama’s approach was the height of strategic incompetence.

Elevating domestic politics over strategic needs, he prevented the military from carrying out his own strategy and attaining his own goals.

But where Obama was strategically illiterate, Mattis is the opposite.

A keen thinker renowned for his grasp of military theory, history, and philosophy, Mattis can bring new energy to America’s long war in Afghanistan.

His strategy, due to be presented to Congress next month, is likely to involve three key components: combating Islamic State, strengthening the Afghan government, and pressing the Taliban and other insurgents toward serious negotiations.

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.

    First, General Mattis is a great Military leader and strategists whop is the right guy for the job.

    However,there are other very capable leaders in the Trump Administration who are all working towards Trumps goal of Making America Great Again. AND, many of these key leaders are former Marines who do not have any ideas that failure is an option!

    Additionally, Marines are accustomed to doing a lot with very little. Innovate and overcome. Consequently America is witnessing great changes in certain “security and intelligence” agencies.

    There are many “WARS” taking place in America;
    The War on Drugs
    The War on Crime
    The War on Poverty
    The War on Illegal Immigration (invasion)
    The War on Education
    Of course, there are many more.

    Trump inherited the Swamp from Obama and the Progressives who are still working to make America into a third world country. Trump is culling out the bad guys and moving forward with his vision of Making America Great Again.

    Meanwhile, Obama and the misguided Progressives are fighting the change like a bunch of first graders moving into second grade. Moveon.org is just one example of the resistance and these idiots are now attempting to kill Republicans.

    The folks involved in this anti-American coup are traitors and committing sedition. A criminal act.

    There will always be violent law breaking folks out there and there will always be the need for Policemen to control this criminal element.

    The Criminal Justice studies all verify this statement as fact. Trump gets it and is working on the root cause of the problem – greedy criminals. Solution = kill them. Marines are very good at this function!

    Mattis, Kelly and Dunford were my husbands’ bosses. All good men and you won’t hear a bad word about neither/either.
