What a disappointment James Mattis has turned out to be.
Back in 2016, many conservatives were excited to learn that Mattis had been chosen to be Trump’s defense secretary. Then after he left the administration, we learned that he had been stalling President Trump over leaving Afghanistan.
Now we find out that he is telling Joe Biden to get rid of the ‘America first’ policy of Trump.
Why in the world would he say that?
Mattis Calls on Biden to Scrap ‘America First’ Policy, Slow Pullout from Afghanistan
Former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has broken his silence on the election with a public call to President-elect Joe Biden to alter the course of current defense policy.
Alongside three co-authors, Mattis published a piece in Foreign Affairs on Monday warning against abrupt departure from Afghanistan and calling for the elimination of “America First” as a tenet of defense strategy.
“To dismiss U.S. involvement today in Afghanistan, Iraq, and elsewhere as ‘endless’ or ‘forever’ wars — as both President Donald Trump and President-elect Joe Biden do — rather than as support to friendly governments struggling to exert control over their own territory misses the point,” Mattis and his co-authors wrote. “It is in the United States’ interests to build the capacity of such governments to deal with the threats that concern Americans.”
Is Mattis just part of the endless wars machine? It sure looks that way.
Mattis says he hopes Biden ends AMERICA FIRST and returns to the kind of globalist foreign policy “that has served the United States so well for decades.” Explain what exactly about 10s of thousands of American deaths and trillions of dollars spent on bloodshed serves us well??

Who had "Jim Mattis hates America" on their Bingo card?

What a massive let-down Mattis is. A military leader who doesn’t believe in America first.
How does that help us?
