Democrats, Media Were Silent When Obama Fired Mattis

Defense Secretaries come and go. Obama had four of them in 8 years who had some unkind things to say about his leadership or lack of it. There was no talk of chaos or of the only adult in the room leaving. Suddenly the media is in meltdown after “Mad Dog” Mattis announced his departure from the Cabinet after President Trump announced our departure from Syria:

Foreign Policy Pentagon reporter Lara Seligman wrote the press corp is contemplating suicide over Mattis’ resignation, “I think I speak for all national security reporters tonight when I say I’m about ready to jump off a cliff. But at least I already wrote the “who will replace Mattis” story two months (only two months?????) ago @ForeignPolicy

Democrats who won’t defend our southern border and who slept as Obama drew red lines in the sand with vanishing ink worry about an ISIS Obama created by a precipitous withdrawal from Iraq regaining strength and reforming in Syria and Iraq.

Dangerous Times: Gimme a General Who Won’t Fight!

American Thinker

It  was Lincoln who said “Give me a general who will  fight!” That was after the North was defeated over and over again by Robert  E. Lee’s smaller and more agile armies. Lincoln’s first generals fought  desperately hard, but not hard enough to win. In the upshot, the Civil War  dragged out to became our bloodiest war ever, 600,000 dead — mostly white  folks. And yes, it was triggered by Christian Abolitionists who made slavery  morally intolerable to half the nation.

Lincoln  was therefore forced to find generals who would fight, and he found Sherman and Grant, who wreaked terrible destruction  on the South. He could see no alternative.

Soldiers  who survived the Civil War lived with their painful wounds for the rest of their  lives. They had no modern painkillers, no antibiotics, just liquor, morphine and  silent suffering. Fifty years after the Civil War, Oliver Wendell Holmes still  ached from his near-fatal war injuries.

In  stark contrast to Lincoln, who demanded to know the truth, Obama is now firing  our most successful fighting general — for telling the truth.

That’s  really all we need to know.

Mr.  Obama likes to compare himself to Lincoln, but baby, he ain’t no Lincoln!

Obama Ousts Another General, This Time, The Head Of Central Command

Family Security Matters

Word on the national security street is that General James Mattis is being  given the bum’s rush out of his job as commander of Central Command, and is  being told to vacate his office several months earlier than planned.

Why the hurry? Pentagon insiders say that he rubbed civilian officials the  wrong way — not because he went all “mad dog,” which is his public image, and  the view at the White House, but rather because he pushed the civilians so hard  on considering the second- and third-order consequences of military action  against Iran.
