  1. Mattis is a civilian, speaking his mind about what policy he believes keeps America secure, based on 40+ years of experience. Trump is a president who doesn’t even read his daily intelligence briefing, who spouts off nonsense through Twitter on the regular, & is driving the country based on the opinions he hears on “Fox & Friends”.... Ironic that you think Mattis is the one who needs to learn to shut his mouth and follow proper decorum. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I didn’t use the term isolationist as a criticism. I was speaking in regards to conflicts/involvement in foreign wars. If you can’t handle that term, pick another. I see no need to get bent out of shape about semantics. That being said, Obama dismissed Mattis for the same reason; Mattis was a little too hot to recommend military engagement. Mattis’ not wanting to leave Syria was consistent with his track record. If Trump did his research, he would have selected a SecDef that was better aligned with his views.

  3. Between a battle tested USMC General and some keyboard warrior, who takes comfort in the safe space of an internet echo chamber, I’ll go with General Mattis. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. He retired from the military prior to becoming the SecDef. That is a civilian position. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Yes, there is more bias to the left in media. Here is a breakdown for online sources: Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. Conversely, the right wing media only “reports”. They would never attack the left... LOL. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I am saying that I haven’t seen any traction in the media, besides the far right media. Of course people have a right to believe in an isolationist doctrine if they wish. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Only in the far right media. It’s getting zero traction outside of the maga echo chamber. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. USMC (reserves), mid-90’s... Nothing for me to brag about. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Yes, I served, and I have friends who served too. Thanks for asking. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I’m not opposed to the doctrine of isolationism, in theory. That being said, I also am not expecting all people to like General Mattis’ beliefs which are contrary.... What I don’t agree with is for people to call him a traitor or a stooge for adhering to a doctrine that the US has adhered to for the 50 years since Mattis first joined the USMC.

  13. When Mattis was in the Trump administration, he resigned because of differences he had with Trump’s foreign policy. He wasn’t an officer in the military as the Secretary of Defense, he was a civilian. He had every right to resign as he wished. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. ....Because this whole thread is about how Mattis is against Trump’s foreign policy. The PR smear against Mattis began when Mattis resigned. Calling a War hero a traitor is an extreme form of ignorance, when the defermenter in Chief is the reason you hold that view.... What’s Biden have to do with it, troll boy?

  15. My offer stands. Speak your mind to a Marine that served with him... They’ll take your little alt right article, crumple it up, then throw it in your face. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
