“It’s helpful to decapitate the senior civilian leadership at the Pentagon in preparation of some aggressive use of the military to bolster the president’s claims that he has won this election,” said one former defense official who has stayed close to the Pentagon’s current uniformed senior leadership. “That is probably the most worrisome, most extreme reason they could be making these decisions,” the official said.
“Then the other extreme — which is also possible, in fact some people think it’s the most likely, which is that this is just about score settling,” the official said.
In the last four years, the Pentagon has pushed back on decisions that senior military leaders hoped they could counsel the president to amend, such as the creation of the Space Force,…. and the use of military force to quell protests.Trump’s New Defense Secretary Signals Troop Drawdown Ahead: ‘All Wars Must End’ | Military.com
Troop does not need authority from Congress to bring all US troops home. He is the general in chief. He can send out a written order, and demand all US troops come home..
Trump has promised to end all wars, and bring all troops home, but then never did it. Instead, he increased budget for new nuclear weapons which have been banned by the UN, by 1 TRILLION dollars.
He has sold more weapons, bombed and drone bombed more countries than any president in history..
Despite all of this, he calls himself the biggest peace maker, and the best peace maker.. LOL.
