    So many things for these guys to stand up to Obama about. Where have they been for the past six years?

    Wait I thought y'all hated Amos. Mostly for being an Obama shill and not being Mattis. Oh and for the whole putting females in combat roles experiment thing.

    Now he criticizes Obama and all of a sudden "we should have more senior officers like him."

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Nope just another in a long line of cowards who ring and run.....I guess when you are retiring you can attack your boss and of course he is auditioning to lie on Fox News.

    keeping their jobs.

    speaking out is likely to get you gone.

    he's retiring, so he has nothing to lose.

    This is really annoying for me. I actually have to take Obamas side on this. That's big time. I hate that punk with a passion. That said we have absolutely no business in the middle east except for commerce, period.

    I know that, but I think they remained silent while too much has been lost in the past six years.

    coward?

    he's not the kind of Officer I prefer ( flyboys are very different leaders than grunts), but he's definitely no coward.
