Veterans blast Trump for Syria movePosted by Josh Taylor / October 12, 2019
You know the commander in chief is doing a terrible job when veterans condemn his military policies. Trump’s latest decision to abandon the Kurds to their fates has drawn such condemnations. It’s time that Trump be removed as commander in chief, if only because he’s not doing his job.
Former Trump staff members have reported feeling “horrified” at Trump’s fawning, simpering calls with both Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Putin. He promised the president of Peru a C-130 overnight, which proved to be a logistical nightmare––and also, why overnight? When Trump’s staff are worried about his sucking up to foreign leaders––especially Putin––we all need to be worried. It’s like seeing a flight attendant panic during heavy turbulence. When that happens, you know you’re doomed.
Donald Trump unfit for duty as Commander in Chief of the United States military and chief diplomat for the country. His latest gaffe, which naturally happened on Twitter, proves our point.
Last month, Trump tweeted an image of a failed rocket launch in Iran. He taunted Iran, sending “Iran best wishes and good luck in determining what happened.” But the joke was not on Iran, it was on Trump, because by sending that image into the ether he offered what experts say is a goldmine of information.
One expert said that the image “identifies for the world (not just Iran) the methods we have attained” for gathering intelligence. “One doesn’t use intel for the purposes of taunting. The Russians and the Chinese will be very happy to study this.”
Another said, “The propensity for saying the quiet part out loud is less amusing when it blows the cover on a multi-decade, multi-president campaign to disrupt Iranian missile and nuclear development with minimal loss of life.”
And things are even worse than that. It appears that the image Trump used came from a spy satellite. What’s worse, amateurs figured out what it was, meaning Russia and China intelligence must now have a great idea of how U.S. gathers intel.
