Ending America's "Permanent State of War"

Sounds like a job for President Trump. And it wasn't some knee-jerk response either, as the Democratic Party's Mass Communications branch has been telling us.

Mattis and Dunford were consciously exploiting Trump's defensiveness about a timeline to press ahead with their own strategy unless and until Trump publicly called them on it. That is what finally happened some weeks after Trump's six month deadline had passed. The claim by Trump advisors that they were taken by surprise was indeed disingenuous. What happened last week was that Trump followed up on the clear policy he had laid down in April.

Long ago, President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned against the power of the "military industrial complex." This month, President Donald J. Trump faced them down, and didn't blink.

[The provocative "permanent war" quote in the post's title comes from the linked article.]

But nanobrewer thinks:

thank you for posting this! I've begun hearing this 'out of the blue' canard enough to initiate the gut feeling it was BS.
