US Defense Secretary Mattis Quits

US Defense Secretary Mattis Quits
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-46640114


Quote:The news of Gen Mattis' departure comes a day after Mr Trump announced all US troops would be withdrawn from Syria.
In his resignation letter, Gen Mattis described his views on "treating allies with respect" and using "all the tools of American power to provide for the common defence".

"Because you have the right to have a Secretary of Defence whose views are better aligned with yours on these and other subjects, I believe it is right for me to step down," Gen Mattis wrote.

Translation:  'I can no longer, in good conscience, work for a dangerous lunatic.'

He basically said, in a way Trump won't understand for at least 5 weeks, "You don't treat allies with respect"

I dont know if he should be considered *least terrible* for working for Trump longer than others, who realized earlier it was time to quit helping him do damage to the US.

Or perhaps: "I wish to send a shock signal to the generals under my command that Trump is not to be collaborated with as he is a dangerous lunatic."

It is obvious. The man can no longer take the punches of the Military Industrial Complex.
The wing of Hilary and Obama fucked him up. Along with Trump.

The asshole is responsible for deserting the Kurds in Syria, along with a ton-load of war crimes; just revise the airstrikes against ISIS which hit hospitals and homes instead of Jihadies, and eveytime the excuse is "they used civilians as human shields".

Soon the rest of this government of motherfuckers will follow in the deserting of Trump. Maybe then the Oligarchs can show their real face instead of using puppets like Trump to run their dirty work for them.

BTW: the U.S terrorist army bombarded its own allies on purpose in the previous days:

America voted for Hillary Clinton by a margin of roughly 3 million votes.

Both wings -The Oligarchs and The Military Industrial Complex- are the same faces of the same coin.

Across history, they both did unspeakable things to serve their interest only, the only reason we are seeing their actions clearly now is that they are fighting each other: so they are exposing each other.

We all know that nobody cares about Kashoggi, or some 2000 dead brown Arabs in Syria, or some burned Kurds in a hospital. But these are sitting ducks if you want to expose somebody in the mainstream media. The crimes of the U.S led collation against ISIS is well known since it began -several news agencies reported-, also Yemen and the hell led by Saudi Arabia in there, but what made it come to the surface as "important news" other than the below-the belt-punches of the Military Industrial Complex to the Oligarchs?

If the elections of America was rigged to make Trump win, then it is very possible that previous elections were rigged too. But something happened this time and led one side to be angry, perhaps it is the Oligarchs' choice to make Trump -the traitor- run for presidency?

RE: US Defense Secretary Mattis Quits
It's almost as if Trump withdrew from Syria to give Mattis a final push out the door.  I'm unsure if Trump is able to think that far ahead, but he seems to have a history of getting rid of people who try to restrain him from doing whatever the fuck he wants - Sessions, Tillerson, Kelly and now Mattis.

The only positive I can see coming out of this is that it seems to be distressing even some politicos who have expressed support for Trump's looney agenda.  Other than that, it's pretty much all bad.
