    Yes.

    Gen. James Mattis served his country well and with honor. He is, without doubt, an American patriot.

    But that doesn’t give him a pass from his recent anti-Trump diatribe in the Atlantic. This screed was filled with bad history and an apparent willful ignorance of exactly what President Trump has been saying and doing. It is a perfect example of a Washington Establishment figure completely and totally out of touch with the reality of history and facts.......

    ......... With all due respect, the General is simply not paying attention — or, worse, he is paying attention and is deliberately misrepresenting the president to score political points with the Washington Establishment and the Trump-hating media.

    In either case, what Gen. Mattis is doing here is wrong. Seriously wrong, divisive, and totally unworthy of an American patriot.

    Still, his honest opinion is wrong.

    Really ruined a ton of his street cred, by doing this. He was nearly a deity in this community for a while.

    He’s a globalist. I knew how he’d behave before he became SecDef.

    Big bad “mad dog” is a whore for globalists. He’s a disgrace

    So a guy who worked directly with Trump knows less of what he's been doing than we do?

    Nope, I'd expect to see it a few dozen times. In fact I already have. I've been here since 2003 and the list of GTPI heroes turned globalist enemy of the people is long indeed.

    Looks like some of the posters here didn't read the article.
    Oh, and in addition to the 1968 unrest, you can add that Abraham Lincoln sent troops into NYC during the draft riots of 1863. One of the regiments sent fresh from the Gettysburg battlefield was the 19th Indiana.

    It's amazing how quickly our Heroes turn into Leftist Communist's with a turn of the Trump.

    It has nothing to do with with knowledge and everything to do with his politics.
    He was fired because he was not serving the President, he was serving the neocons and the military industrial complex.
    He wanted war with Syria. A country that has done absolutely nothing to us, we helped destabilize it and happens to be a modern country by Arab standards.
    The Syrian President tolerates and protects religious minorities including Christians and if the Christians are on his side, it's good, considering the genocide Christians have suffered in Arab countries.
    I have no use for this man regardless of his background.

    Mattis.
    Kelly.
    McRaven.
    Mullin.
    Powell.

    How many former flag officers have to criticize the President's actions before we begin to accept they might have a point?

    Well, it depends.
    How many times did they criticize Bush?
    Let's see, under Bush we invaded Iraq to look for non existing WMDs, killed large number of people, we had thousands of our own lilled, a lot of suicides, very large numbers of wounded, many scarred for life, and lousy health care for our vets.
    At the same time his great achievement was to make Iraq ally of Iran.
    I still remember Powell lying at the UN about WMDs.
    I'm not impressed by your heroes.
