Trump's general disregard for our allies
Jan 25, 2013: www.weeklystandard.com...
President Barack Obama fired General James Mattis, the head of Central Command, without even calling the general to let him know he was being replaced.
There is a belief that Mattis and Obama differed on Iran. "A particular point of disagreement was what to do about mischief Iran is exporting to other countries. Mattis is indeed more hawkish on this than the White House was," writes Ricks in yet another post.
