I don't know if Mattis is right or wrong but if one disagrees with the president than resigning is the right thing to do.
Really, don't you think a leader needs input from differing points of view and debate?
Trump didn't fire him, he resigned. When the commander in chief has made a decision and as Truman said, "the buck stops here", you either agree with your boss or you are free to leave. I served in the military and didn't agree with many of the decisions my superiors made and I was not free to "leave". I don't know if Trump is making the right decision or not but if not perhaps the Brits or Germans would like to step up and fill in for our departing soldiers. You know, all of our NATO allies.

Absolutely! However, if I'm employed in an advisory role, and my most important advice is not heeded, at some point I'm going to stop banging my head against the wall and leave that role. Maybe I'll go where I can make a difference. Maybe I'll throw in the towel. Maybe I'll do something else entirely, but I'm not Sisyphus, and I'm not obligated to labor in vain.

Withdrawing from Syria Implements the Trump Doctrine
That’s what it takes to actually win.
December 24, 2018 Daniel Greenfield

Trump’s actions in Syria encompass his preference for flexibility, quick strikes or withdrawals with no long term commitment. And that’s exactly what frustrates a national security establishment whose watershed moment was still the post-war reconstruction of Germany and Japan. They foolishly misread Trump by confusing commitment with consistency, and unpredictability with inconsistency:

Their dad diagnosed Donald Trump with bone spurs as a favor to FredTrump says late doctors daughters.

Clinton got a General to write his draft board and then didn’t do as he promised, if I remember correctly.

George W. Bush got some strings pulled and got into the National Guard.

I got a college deferment then a high lottery number.

There were many true patriots that volunteered for service in Vietnam. It will always be a shame the politicians let them down.

I honor their service and will always remember the names I know on the wall. God bless them all.

Trump doesn’t visit troops in war zone cause he is a coward.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/26/us/p ... visit.html

Trump and Meliana make surprise visit to Troops in Iraq.

I think the President should announce in advance when he visits troops in a war zone, so the news media doesn’t look like fools. It’s another attack on the MSM.

I'm sure you read that Meliana Trump's visit with troops in a war zone was the first time in history this has happened. I think the MSM made some comment about her boots being an appropriation.

Maybe what you did not realize is that Obama visited the troops every year on Christmas Day.

Wait for it.

In Hawaii.

Its been pretty quiet for Trump, lots of celebrities saying really bad things about him is all. Calling him terrible things. But that has become sort of normal. Aahrrobertdenerouh. Aahrrjimcareyuh. (thats me coughing and saying a bad words at the same time)

https://legalinsurrection.com/2018/12/v ... -incident/ If you missed it, a vape shop employee did a tirade against a customer who came in with Magawear on. He's been fired.

Louis CK did a new standup show that I found hilarious, the liberals are going crazy with hate, his career is over, how low can you go. He made fun of David Hogg and Non binary people, who ever they are. I won't link to it since it over the top violates forum rules. But its on youtube, if you hurry.

Lets have a great New Year President Trump.

New York Governor Pardons Murderers Because… Trump

Yesterday, New York Governor Cuomo granted clemency to 29 convicts. Among them were four who were serving long sentences for murder.
Why? Because he seemingly wanted to send a message to President Trump.
In total, 22 inmates were pardoned. Nine more had sentences commuted. Four of those were sentences for murder and three were for armed robbery.
Among those who were given pardons were several immigrants who were facing possible deportation. Now they can be with their families, the governor said.

If you think Cuomo is alone, you’re wrong. As a matter of fact, last week the California Supreme Court rejected California Governor Jerry Brown’s attempts to commute the sentences of longtime prison inmates, including a Sacramento man who beat a man to death back in 1997.
In recent weeks, the court has denied 10 of Brown’s clemency actions. It’s the first time they’ve made such a move in a half century.
On Christmas Eve, Brown issued 143 pardons and 131 commutations. Nine of the 10 inmates who had commutations were rejected had been convicted in homicide cases. Last December, Brown granted pardons to two men who were going to be deported for committing crimes while in the U.S. With the pardons, the reason for the applicants’ deportations was eliminated.

But sadly, those CITIZENS that were murdered will not be with their families. :banghead:

Impeachment measure introduced in House on first day.

He can brag, he was first.

I am reminded of Porfiles in Courage, a book by then Senator John F. Kennedy.

Times have changed.
