    Trump Calls Out ‘Top People in the Pentagon’ Who ‘Fight Wars’ for Defense Contractors’ Profits

    President Donald Trump hammered the military-industrial complex during a press conference on Labor Day.

    Trump talked about his foreign policy agenda at the press conference in reference to recent fake news reports that he called dead military personnel “losers” and “suckers.” The president noted that his policy to bring the troops home have offended military brass in the national defense swamp.

    “I’m not saying the military’s in love with me — the soldiers are, the top people in the Pentagon probably aren’t because they want to do nothing but fight wars so that all of those wonderful companies that make the bombs and make the planes and make everything else stay happy,” Trump said to the reporters.

    Trump has had to play politics and there is a legitimate place for defense spending and arms sales.

    Trump is ending the wars and that is what matters in the long and short runs.

    The Trumpkin neocon faithful are always on the lookout for new "enemies" to start a yuuuuge profits war with, even if they're in other galaxies.



    Opposed to military adventurism for profit, he is not. A whole new branch of the military has been created under the Trump administration.

    Gee, if only he were Commander-in-Chief and had the executive power to immediately issue an executive order to the SecDef directing immediate withdrawal of troops. That would be so great but I guess he only has the power to flap his lips some more while his CFR cabinet makes the actual decisions.

    The U.S. will be withdrawing more than 2,000 troops from Iraq this month, according to a new announcement from a top U.S. general.

    “In recognition of the great progress the Iraqi forces have made and in consultation and coordination with the government of Iraq and our coalition partners, the United States has decided to reduce our troop presence in Iraq from about 5,200 to 3,000 troops during the month of September,” Marine General Frank McKenzie, the head of U.S. Central Command, said during a visit to Iraq, according to an excerpt of his remarks provided to American Military News.



    McKenzie explained that Iraqi forces, which have been trained by U.S. troops, are capable of fighting ISIS mostly on their own now. The remaining troops will continue “advising and assisting” Iraqi forces for now.

    Trump is also expected to announce the withdrawal of more U.S. troops from Afghanistan.

    The 'top people' that POTUS called out have got to stop, war crimes are a big no-no in this age of social justice and diversity promotions. Trump's nominating First African-American US Air Force Chief in history recently may change the direction of things radically too potentially.

    (AP) Trump’s recycling program: War crimes and war criminals, old and (potentially) new

    Rebecca Gordon
    April 3, 2018
    A barely noticed anniversary slid by on March 20th. It’s been 15 years since the United States committed the greatest war crime of the twenty-first century: the unprovoked, aggressive invasion of Iraq. The New York Times, which didn’t exactly cover itself in glory in the run-up to that invasion, recently ran an op-ed by an Iraqi novelist living in the United States entitled “Fifteen Years Ago, America Destroyed My Country,” but that was about it. The Washington Post, another publication that (despite the recent portrayal of its Vietnam-era heroism in the movie "The Post") repeatedly editorialized in favor of the invasion, marked the anniversary with a story about the war’s “murky” body count. Its piece concluded that at least 600,000 people died in the decade and a half of war, civil war, and chaos that followed — roughly the population of Washington, D.C.

    Trump nominee to be Air Force chief of staff says he navigates 'two worlds' as an African American man

    By Kaelan Deese - 06/05/20
    Gen. Charles Brown, commander of Pacific Air Forces and President Trump's nominee to be the next Air Force chief of staff, said in a video released Friday that he navigates "two worlds" as an African American and that he's "thinking about how I can make improvements" institutionally.

    "As the commander of Pacific Air Forces, a senior leader in our Air Force, and an African American, many of you may be wondering what I'm thinking about the current events surrounding the tragic death of George Floyd," Brown said.
    The general said he has been thinking about living in "two worlds, each with their own perspective and views."

    "I'm thinking about how my nomination provides some hope, but also comes with a heavy burden. I can't fix centuries of racism in our country, nor can I fix decades of discrimination that may have impacted members of our Air Force," he said.
    Brown said he is thinking about how he can make improvements both "personally, professionally, and institutionally," so that current and future airmen "appreciate the value of diversity."

    It's almost as though Trump appointed:

    Raytheon executives as Secretary of the Army, Secretary of the Air Force, and Secretary of Defense

    A Lockheed Martin executive as the Secretary of the Army (bonus points: CFR staff member)

    A Boeing executive as the Deputy Secretary of Defense

    A Bank of America executive as the Under Secretary of the Air Force

    A PricewaterhouseCoopers executive as the Under Secretary of the Navy

    Trump signs $738 billion defense spending bill
    Dec 20, 2019

    The largest one-year defense budget increases in American History

    200k active troops overseas in 177 countries

    There was no shortage of cuts proposed in Trump’s budget for 2018, which was released earlier this week.
    However, one of the few departments that did not receive a haircut was the Department of Defense. If the proposed budget ultimately passes in Congress, the DoD would be allocated an extra $54 billion in federal funding – a 10% increase that would be one of the largest one-year defense budget increases in American History.

    Will Trump's troop levels go back up in 2021 the way they did in 2017?

    Will he launch a few hundred tomahawks at a new country?



    Or are we all collectively crawling up our own asses and pretending like it's 2015 and Trump is anti-war?

    Russia Hoaxer TheCount is not interested in the truth.

    Russia Hoaxer TheCount thinks the tomahawk launch into Syria was part of Trumps allegiance to Putin.

    Russia Hoaxer TheCount thinks he can hide his Russia Hoax beliefs, but I have at least three quotes of his which prove TheCount believes the Russian Collusion Hoax. Russia Hoaxer TheCount can't hide his true beliefs when confused and angry.

    Russia Hoaxer TheCount actually does not believe the Russian Collusion Hoax, I am sure, as Trumps antagonistic moves towards Russia would defy such a conspiracy. but Russia Hoaxer TheCount doesn't care about truth. Russia Hoaxer TheCount will use anything and everything he can to attack Trump from a libertarian perspective, even though Russia Hoaxer TheCount is just another statist neocon that uses neocon language, unaware that it outs him as just another Lincoln project type neocon.

    Russia Hoaxer TheCount claims to care about Tomohawk missile launches into Syria, while at the same time insists Assad and Putin "regimes" wanted nothing more than to kill every person in Aleppo.

    Russia Hoaxer TheCount thinks troop reductions to 3,000 are the same as the Obama administration low point, when it was 4,500.

    Russia Hoaxer TheCount says 2 + 2 = 5.
