MATTIS: Suddenly a hero

Print Article

The Left, almost always against our military, has now embraced General Mattis because of his resignation from President Trump’s Administration. Never mind that the Left has been against us sending troops into the Middle East ever since Muslim terrorists attacked us 17 years ago. Now suddenly, the Democrats want us to stay and fight only because President Trump is tired of our troops being butchered in an endless war.

We lost hundreds of thousands of young Americans and billions of dollars in Korea and again in Vietnam before finally walking away with our tail between our legs. Thus far we have lost thousands of soldiers in the Middle East — dead and amputated. Now we are expected to continue fighting, maybe forever — for others, no matter what the cost in blood and treasure? How cavalier of America’s elites with the economy and lives of the American people!
