Report: Trump held private, enlisted-only Afghanistan war meetings – ‘No generals or officers, only enlisted guys that have been there’.
“I want to sit down with some enlisted guys that have been there,” Trump reportedly told advisers, according to Peter Bergen, author of “Trump and His Generals: The Cost of Chaos.”
“I don’t want any generals in here. I don’t want any officers,” he added.
He’s been doing this for years now and apparently is the reason that he doesn’t trust the Senior Brass. His business experience guides him.
Trump reportedly compared the opinions of senior military officers to those of a restaurant consultant. Rather than taking the advice of the consultant, who would suggest expanding a kitchen for renovations, Trump argued it would be more prudent and cost effective to ask the advice of the waiters who see the day to day operations and can identify the most basic problems in a restaurant’s functions.
One of the first groups Trump reportedly met with were enlisted Navy SEALs who criticized the war and said the war in Afghanistan is “unwinnable.”
“NATO’s a joke. Nobody knows what they’re doing,” the SEALs reportedly told Trump. “We don’t fight to win. The morale is terrible. It’s totally corrupt.”
The way to end the Afghanistan War is to end it. Pull everyone back to Bagram Air Base, destroy all military equipment not to be left in the hands of the military loyal to the Government. And leave. With a heavy air cap over the base and the last guy on the plane hands the keys to the Afghan general taking over. If they can hold the base and airfield, we’ll continue to keep them in bullets and shells. They lose that field…
WE… AIN’T…COMING… BACK!
