    And he also brought back thousands of American troops back home from foreign countries.

    He's the best friend the military and veterans ever had.

    He rebuilt the VA and made veterans tap private doctors and hospitals so they wouldn't have to stand in line for treatment.

    "Itís a rich boyís privilege to see the poor and downtrodden as pawns in a political game rather than as individual people in desperate need. The idea that Donald Trump actually cares about the [military] financial realities Americans face is ludicrous. Now that he is on his way out, itís increasingly obvious heís only loyal to himself."

    I'm not surprised that he vetoed the defense bill. Let's hope that congress overrides it.

    Trump's last days in office are like a circus show no offense meant to circuses.

    'Military Veterans to Legal Experts Condemn Trump’s Pardoning of Blackwater War Criminals'

    https://www.counterpunch.org/2021/01...war-criminals/

    "If these outrageous acts of clemency were not revolting enough, on December 22 Trump further cemented his legacy as a malignant narcissist and amoral gangster, one who possesses a deep disdain for the Constitution and international law, by pardoning four convicted U.S. war criminals responsible for massacring unarmed Iraqi civilians."

    Personally I'm not surprised some in the military lean towards conspiracy thinking. And I still laugh over conversations I had with soldiers from the deep south. Many joined the military to escape the back road world and see the world. Education and reading weren't their thing, complexity puzzles many and conspiracy offers easy solutions. Kinda like the big guy in the sky throwing switches. You know the image. Complexity requires reason, reasons can be hard.

    Media too is responsible as they could have covered Trump more honestly given his history of lying cheating and worse. See this book for a honest view of Trump and family. Read it read it read it.

    Those Blackwater guys were railroaded. It was a clear case of collateral damage. Pardoning them was a good thing IMO.

    The F-35 is a pretty good plane if you accept that it is not an air superiority dogfighter and never will be.

    It's only when people insist that it be used in a role that it is completely unsuited for that it starts to come up short.

    Of course, that brings up the issue of Barack Obama crippling our military by canceling our real air superiority fighters.
