Fox News Insider:
Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer reacted to criticism of the United States military dropping the "mother of all bombs" [MOAB] this week.
Meyer called the action, approved by President Trump, a direct reflection of White House leadership.
He said that after eight years, we have president who allows the military operators on-the-ground to make their own decisions, instead of through political gamesmanship in Washington.
Yes who needs all of that "political gamesmanship" like careful planning and diplomacy, when you can just drop giant bombs on the problem?
If you click the link you can enjoy for yourself the raping of the English language by Meyers and be reminded yet again that there is no IQ test to marry into the Palin family.
For example here is just one of Dakota's attempts to answer a simple question:
"Well I mean look the mindset of these terrorists, I mean look there's only one solution to them as a problem, and that is exactly more of this happening. But..uh..you know for the US military I mean I think that if you take a year ago we had a Commander-in-Chief that would let you get captured by Iran and not do any repercussions. I mean what do you think the mindset is there? Versus now we've got a commander-in-chief who saying 'Hey, run your military like you need to and do whatever it takes to get rid of the enemy.'"
Yes damn that President Obama for not getting us into a war with Iran. Just what was he thinking?
Of course the problem with allowing the military to run amuck without civilian oversight is that a hammer sees every problem as a nail.
Left to their own devices the military will create far more enemies than they will kill, and soon Afghanistan will reignite into a full blown war devouring the lives of thousands of additional American soldiers.
President Obama was working to end our conflicts in the Middle East, whereas Trump, despite his campaign rhetoric, appears to see dropping bombs in the area as a means to improve his poll numbers.
I have a really bad feeling about all of this.
