The military was set up in such way that protocol is always the leading principle to follow. This yardstick that makes the U.S. military so special and well established is applied in every aspect of soldiers’ lives, even when it comes to commenting on Presidents.
Therefore, when it just so happens that someone does remark a certain topic, the country is a little taken aback by it.
However, we need to realize just how serious this could be, especially because we have a general speaking up against former President Barack Obama, saying he was always good at giving terrorists a psychological boost.
U.S. Army Gen. John Nicholson spoke on the Obama issue Monday, explaining Obama’s main goal was to convince jihadists that the U.S. army was not willing to fight, thus adding fuel to the fire.
Take a look at the video below:
This caused for the Taliban to perceive America as fragile and labile.
“From 2011 to 2016, we telegraphed to the enemy that we were leaving,” Nicholson said in the video.
“We drew down our forces steadily – I’d say too far and too fast – and so the enemy believed that in this contest of wills, we had lost our will,” he continued.
“Number one, I’m concerned about international will, and international will to succeed.”
Nicholson had commented prior to this that he was “very concerned about the level of losses” in Afghanistan.
From 2015 to 2016, the U.S. army managed to lose around 15 percent of the Afghanistan’s districts.
However, with trump on the throne, things are slowly coming back to their own, original pace.
As Nicholson analyzed that with Trump’s guidance, whose focus has always been on what works best for the military, “we now have the will to succeed.”
Ever since Trump took control of the country, the terror has diminished significantly. It took one great man to stand up to wannabe bullies who played house for a long time with Obama in charge. Now, ISIS threats have been cut in half, while tensions in Afghanistan have dropped significantly.
This goes to show that if you play your cards right, you’ll earn the respect from others, which is not something Obama can say about himself.
