Just like back in the Vietnam era, Trump Administration is hiding the troop deployments from the American people.

Oh boy, I have an army of my own now too!
Courtesy of the LA Times:  

Even as the U.S. military takes on a greater role in the warfare in Iraq and Syria, the Trump administration has stopped disclosing significant information about the size and nature of the U.S. commitment, including the number of U.S. troops deployed in either country. 

Earlier this month, the Pentagon quietly dispatched 400 Marines to northern Syria to operate artillery in support of Syrian militias that are cooperating in the fight against Islamic State, according to U.S. officials. That was the first use of U.S. Marines in that country since its long civil war began. 

In Iraq, nearly 300 Army paratroopers were deployed recently to help the Iraqi military in their six-month assault on the city of Mosul, according to U.S. officials. 

Neither of those deployments was announced once they had been made, a departure from the practice of the Obama administration, which announced nearly all conventional force deployments.

The excuse for this is that Trump wants the element of surprise, as if the enemy is not aware when large numbers of American soldiers land on their shores unless they read it in the America press first.

What seems to actually be happening is that Trump is escalating conflicts all around the globe and keeping the American people out of the loop.

That is essentially the tactics used during the Vietnam era to keep us from knowing how many of our soldiers were fighting and dying in a war that we had already lost.

And you can bet your ass that if the Trump Administration is not going to tell us how many troops are being deployed, and where they are fighting, that there is no way they are going to keep us apprised of the casualties that result from those decisions.

Here let be take a moment to laugh at the people who claimed they were not voting for Hillary because she was a "war monger,"  and then further claimed that Trump was antiwar.

Fucking morons!

    -Fear not. They'll rationalize it *somehow*. Just like the people who are currently losing their jobs, their benefits, their Meals-on-Wheels are rationalizing their losses...and *still* backing their Emperor-God; as long as that "wall gets built" and "we are kept safe" and "'Murca is made great agin...'", (Here's the rationalisation-) "We all have to make sacrifices!" (and as long as the -ahem- 'darker ones' make bigger sacrifices than THEM, *hey*, it's A-okay! /s

    Puppet Trump wanted to be like his handler Putin and be honored and praised as a great military leader in America's version of the:

    Russian Communist Parade
    North Korea Communist Parade
    China Communist Parade
    Romanian Communist Parade

    On 19 January 2017, the Huffington Postpublished an article reporting that President-elect Donald Trump requested tanks and missiles at his inaugural parade but was not granted that wish:

    The military “may come marching down Pennsylvania Avenue,” Trump told the Washington Post in an interview . “That military may be flying over New York City and Washington, D.C., for parades. I mean, we’re going to be showing our military.”

    During the preparation for Friday’s transfer-of-power, a member of Trump’s transition team floated the idea of including tanks and missile launchers in the inaugural parade, a source involved in inaugural planning told The Huffington Post. “They were legit thinking Red Square/North Korea-style parade,” the source said, referring to massive military parades in Moscow and Pyongyang, typically seen as an aggressive display of muscle-flexing.

    The military, which traditionally works closely with the presidential inaugural committee, shot down the request, the source said. Their reason was twofold. Some were concerned about the optics of having tanks and missile launchers rolling down Pennsylvania Avenue. But they also worried that the tanks, which often weigh over 100,000 pounds, would destroy the roads.

    “I could absolutely see structural support being a reason [not to use tanks],” a Department of Defense official said. “D.C. is built on a swamp to begin with.”

    The HuffPo article referenced a New York Times article profile in which Trump was briefly quoted as advocating military parades:

    “Being a great president has to do with a lot of things, but one of them is being a great cheerleader for the country,” Trump said. “And we’re going to show the people as we build up our military, we’re going to display our military.

    “That military may come marching down Pennsylvania Avenue. That military may be flying over New York City and Washington, D.C., for parades. I mean, we’re going to be showing our military,” he added.

    The claim that Trump wanted a “full Soviet-style inaugural parade, with tanks, missiles and missile launchers” was widely aggregated by other online outlets, but we’ve so far been unable to locate any corroboration of it other than the unnamed “source involved in inaugural planning” reference by the Huffington Post.

    Definitely not surprised Tracks son is named after Todd and Chuck as he is close to them. But I've suspected adult onset Borderline disorder since last year when he started to mimic a friend's brother's behaviours. Just because he had no school related problems and had a good high school relationship with a girl who has known his family for 20 years doesn't mean something can't develop later on. And it has to be hard for him to have witnessed innocent people get attacked and slandered over the years. THAT I know affects him. His sister had a piece of shit ex who lies. Well known.

    Prayers. The fortunate thing is, he can keep a job and doesn't live off parents. That alone might take out psych issue.

      Give it up troll. Track's a loose cannon, always has been and always will be.

      He was suspended from school more than a few times beginning in middle school, for bullying, fighting and being generally averse to discipline.

      His grades were always poor. He was medicated for ADHD in his early teens but often wouldn't take his meds, but others in the family sure did :-)

      Britta was the best thing that ever happened to him, why do you think Sarah kept her under the apron and gave her a job in her admin? To keep her close and try to get her to fix Track, but Track is broken and Britta's parent's were alarmed by his treatment of her even back in HS.

      The whole group is a mess, why take up for them?

    "You, Father Joe Jesuspants, leader of The American Christian Ministry For The Salvation of Little Brown Baby War Orphans, wants to provide humanitarian aid to non-combatants caught in the conflict and maybe convert some heathens to Jesus along the way."
    "Is it a crime, treason, to rescue war orphans or work for a Russian oil company?
    No. Of course not."
    "While there is always shady shit going at the senior levels (because that is the nature of politicians, preachers, and generals),"
    "for legality's sake – exactly as you're seeing right now with the Trump Administration. If you accuse the government of monitoring your Christian relief organization (or your big gaudy golden dick-shaped tower in Manhattan) and you decide to sue over it, well, the only way for the government to prove its actions were lawful and that it followed the rules is to keep a record of exactly what occurred."

    Trump doesn't need to hide the number of troops, he needs to hide the corpses, he needs to hide the body count.

    Trump's every war outing so far has been an unmitigated disaster- and that won't change because he is too driven by the subhumans that voted for him to listen to America's own military brass.
