TGIF it’s Friday and time for our weekly shoot the shit topic. As with all shoot the shits, readers are free to make any unsupported comment, use profanity without fear of censure, insult anyone you wish or change the subject altogether. This is a service we provide at no charge to our readers. Its efficacy is far better than paying a therapist. Remember that a therapist started out his or her career as a freshman in college taking psychology so they could understand themselves. So, let us hear from you!
Okay, we can all thank the Almighty that Donald J Trump and Mike Pence won this election. I hear White House staffers are secretly celebrating the Trump victory; now they won’t need to inventory White House furniture and dinnerware before leaving the premises. Ok, so, Judging by President-Elect Trump’s cabinet picks there’s good reason to feel optimistic. However, the drama surrounding his pick for Secretary of State is intensifying and an increasingly tough decision as everyone of his candidates is extremely well qualified and capable, but our vote goes to David Petraeus.
Gen. Petraeus is eminently qualified to work with the President Elect in reshaping NATO to reflect 21st Century needs and challenges.
David Petraeus, in implementing COIN in Iraq, demonstrated an in-depth understanding of sectarian influence and interaction in the Middle East. The Middle East remains the most significant threat to U.S. national security, global economic stability and a breeding ground for radicalization not limited to ISIS.
David Petraeus as former Director of the CIA, has a clear vision of intelligence operations and is fully capable of providing the CIA with the assistance needed to facilitate their operations.
Gen Petraeus’ military background as a senior officer uniquely qualifies him to work with our international partners to coordinate military and diplomatic efforts to better address the metastasis of global terror.
Let the President-Elect know who your choice would be.
Have a great weekend! Be safe and enjoy some quality time with your buds and/or family. Just 24 days left until Christmas!
