competent civilian leadership consists of input form those in tune with their own areas of influence...weighing those concerns against all the others, and then deciding on a course of action.
competent leadership is not " stfu and do what I tell you"
I guarantee Amos knows more about what's going on in Iraq than Obama or his progressive cronies (the nature of his past commands requires extensive knowledge on operational theaters.).....I do not like the General or agree with his opinion ( partly), but he's a solid performer.
he is correct in saying that we should have been present to work with Iraqi leadership these past years.
not only do we share a certain responsibility for stabilizing that particular country, we're one of the few that actually can.
where i disagree in is deploying marines to Iraq again or having a sizable military presence.... we have Obama's robotic assassins ( drones) that can provide valuable intel and ,well, dead bodies .
Russia versus Obama, a laugher.
China versus Obama, a laugher.
We are because of democrats becoming the yellow chicken laughing stock of the world. Early withdrawal has never been a formula for success.
Think if Trump get elected how much resistance he will face with in all phases of our country from people to military to politicians. He must not win.
