Lieutenant General Michael Flynn is a smart man. He was the head of the Defense Intelligence Agency for a number of years and had spent nearly three decades in the military. He knows what needs to be done to win, and yet in 2014 he was fired.
He wasn’t fired because of a lack of leadership, he wasn’t fired because he didn’t produce results. The real reason he was fired was because he called the enemies of the United States “radical jihadis”. You read that correctly.
Flynn had tried to change the political ideology in the military to focus on the battlefield rather than focus on politics in Washington. He says that the “global enemy” that the United States faces cannot be destroyed peacefully. So if a man who has spent years at the head of the DIA says that we need military action to defeat our enemies, it has to be true.
Instead our beloved President wants to try and solve things peacefully, even though it has been proven time and time again that peace isn’t the solution. He says that we need to use both politics and military tactics to fully defeat this enemy. “On military battlefields, we have defeated radical Islamic forces every time we have seriously gone after them, from Iraq to Afghanistan.”
The evidence speaks for itself. We need a President who is willing to take action to try and defeat this enemy using military strength instead of just asking them nicely to stop. “We have the wherewithal, but lack the will. That has to change. It’s hard to imagine it happening with our current leaders, but the next president will have to do it.”
Lieutenant General Flynn ended his rant by saying this, “It infuriates me when our president bans criticism of our enemies, and I am certain that we cannot win this war unless we are free to call our enemies by their proper names: radical jihadis, failed tyrants, and so forth.”
There is a reason that before Donald Trump picked Indiana Governor Mike Pence that this man was on a list of potential vice presidential candidates. He is an extremely intelligent individual who would have the will and the intelligence to defeat our enemies permanently.
Share this article if you believe that President Obama is being too lenient on our enemies and that we need leadership like the one that Lieutenant General Flynn has had throughout his career. Trump would surely listen to this man on how to defeat the enemies of America.
