Trump: US generals 'reduced to rubble,' he'd replace some

NEW YORK (AP) — Leveling unusually harsh criticism against the military, Republican Donald Trump said Wednesday night that America's generals have been "reduced to rubble" under President Barack Obama and suggested he would fire some of them if he wins the presidency in November.

Obama replaced the generals with "yes" men. You aren't permitted to disagree with his failing strategies or you get the ax.

Alex Jones says that Obama has forced out Christian generals so it must be so. except that it's not, but the low-information voters want to believe it.

You people are as stupid as the terrorists who think that they will have 69 virgins waiting for them in heaven.

He was NOT slamming the Generals. He was slamming the Commander in Chief who has repeatedly not taken their advice and "reduced them to rubble."

He is clueless

He was slamming both. From a Trump perspective (bear with me here), anyone who allows themselves to be subjugated to someone like Obama is not a 'real man'. Does that make sense? No. But neither does anything else Trump says.

Obama wants Generals with vaginas. Then, he will have accomplished his goals.

Actually, that's exactly what happens. The President nominates officers to be promoted to the general grades and subsequent promotions after that. The process is entirely political and at the mercy of the President.

Obama has actually been very good to the generals. There are more generals today than there were in WWII, the homes built or refurbished for them are extravagant, and they receive all sorts of bonus pay on top of their base salary.

Sorry Pal.. Trumps statement is that Obama And Hillary turned the Generals advice to garbage,, as they would not take any advice. O and Hill ..They are the Smartest S.O.B's in the room. This has been told over and over by retiring military and others. The Know It All Duo used P.C with their orders to Military commanders to go soft on ISIS. Trump respects the Military.. Obama and Hillary don't.. one look at Obamas flip of a lousy salute to Marines on the Marine 1 helo tells everyone just that.

You and Hillary have Nothing.. And Hillary will do Nothing as Obama to keep Americans safe world wide.. Nothing. If she's Elected Go do some World Traveling.. I Dare You! Then she lies over and over about the e mails. She can not be trusted with any TS info .Her staff took hammers to the email devices she used .. Lord what a Criminal!

Every President before Obama listen to the advice of Generals and Admirals . When they don't go along that was because other staffers and Gens and Adms had differences. With Obama He is the smartest person in the room.. I his own mind.. he surrounds himself with YES Men and YES Woman..that ARE ALL Liberals... Hillary is the same. So if someone gets Gen or Flag rank..They best toe the line.

Vietnam was the result of a "Wise Guy" Smartest man In The Room..

Former Ford Wizard Exec. McNamara. LOOk what happened. Don't Trust Hillary as POTUS a Inch!

When generals run your foreign policy every problem looks like something a war will solve.

Only tool in the proverbial toolbox.

LBJ WAS A DEMOCRAT! He Micro Managed the V.N. War. Picking targets,, PC hands off this and that! Like Obama and Hilary!

Nixon did not take Office till Jan 1969! And By late 1971 the Marines went home. He stopped the US troop Grunt body count.The lst US Army Combat action in VN was in 1973..May. Nixon listened to the Military and turned the war over to The Navy and Airforce pilots to bomb the shit out of NVA and it worked. The pilots took the beating and saved Troop's lives BIG Time..Allowing the DRAFT to End in the Summer of 1972!

FDR was a Democrat that understood that the US military knew better then him.. He turned it over to them for Victory. G Bush did the same..Then Obama and Hillary F'ed it all up and turned it over for the creation of ISIS..

G Bush attacked a country that had NOTHING to do with 9-11!
And that needless war was still dragging on endlessly when he left office! Victory, the man says! What a fucktard!

"Why is Trump a draft dodger"

In retrospect it was the guys who pumped gas, the guys who worked construction.. For the most part the RED WHITE and BLUE Collar Working Jerks, Black White and Brown that were drafted.. Well off White Boys had Deferments 2-S and others..

That's Just the way it was youngster. And I have known a many Viet Nam vet that told me.. they were proud to serve BUT! They would have NEVER BEEN There If they were Not Drafted!

I was a Young Grasshopper 18 in 1972.. And was NOT Drafted .It ended in the Summer of 72.. when I was a Young Blue Collar Gas Pump Jockey who never had a 2-S or went to college. I was 1H registed..Holding..as all my age were. No I never served as The Great Majority of those MY Age did not.. It was a Different time and place. But I remember all of the politics of the Day. And I don't lie like so many of the Internet do.. about being a VET..with False Valor stolen from those who did serve! I bet is that they are 99% Hillary Voters..too..
