Skip Bacevich Advice to the Next President.

Andrew Bacevich has some serious advice for the next President.

This quote goes to the heart of the discussion:

So, yes, Trump’s critique of American generalship possesses merit, but whether he knows it or not, the question truly demanding his attention as the incoming commander-in-chief isn’t: Who should I hire (or fire) to fight my wars?  Instead, far more urgent is: Does further war promise to solve any of my problems?

One Response to Skip Bacevich Advice to the Next President.

    Bacevich is facing the wrong way. To ask Trump to gaze into his own navel while our military and diplomatic and economic power are so weak that Djibouti could take Delaware is Bacevich, once again, facing the wrong direction. The questions for Trump are these:

    4. How strong must America be for no one to threaten war? We so enjoyed pillorying Rummie for stating we go to war with the Army we got. How long before the Left forgets Obama was POTUS?

    3. Which pissant needs regime change so violent that the big dogs decide to sniff after someone else’s bone? Besides France.

    2. Which country’s leader values war, or going to the brink of war, with America?

    1. Which of those leaders has the motivation, means, and ability to create the opportunity to pull America into a war?

    Bonus question: since American leftists are always only on the side of America’s enemies, how many of them can be caught aiding and abetting those enemies?

    Speaking of which, the Norks are due for their quadrennial mass murder of South Koreans to show how rough and tough they are.

    Interesting side note: the leftist anti-war groups have been let out of their cages. Who knows? Maybe next we’ll see news journalists actively investigating and reporting once Trump is inaugurated?

    Everything old is new again. Or is it?
