    We need protracted wars, without goals, with relatively weak countries...and oh look...That's what we have. These wars are so important to the Democrat and Republican party that we are not likely to get truth on the situation for 30 years.

    We don't have issues with confessing to having done bad things 30 years ago.

    The American people could save some money if Tillerson would stop by on his way home and give Mattis a lift as well. Can the Secretary of Defense be far behind in the Trump administrative blood letting? It's heartening to know that our president knows more then the Generals and that none of our diplomats really make a difference, as only he, Trump, has the insight and power to do anything effective.
