The war efforts of the US is not going that well. I think that the US should decide who we are warring.
Is it China or is it Russia. We cannot fight both enemies. We can try, but we do not have the resources to do it.
I understand that mr. Trump needs a positive stance within the defense community, and, honestly it has started badly.
Mr. Trump needs to respect the traditions and ways of CIA, the navy, the infantry, the airforce.
Because these people are the best America has to offer, hands down.
On the other hand, we need some cooperation. If our infights leads to strategic decision that hinder the war overall, that is also a problem.
Mr. Trump has very little understanding on warfare, but he has one huge thing that he can contribute with. He is friends with mr. Putin.
In a situation where war with China i almost inevitable, that is VERY important.
The war with Russia is not a given, it is simply the traditions of the military and the prejudices of the public and others that leads to that.
The war with China is given. As sad as it is, it reminds me of the infighting between Phoenicia and Rome. The war came due to strategic interests not animosity.
There is another problem. And that is the fact, that a lot of the R and D has been targeted on China and the Islamists. If we really wanted to beat Russia, we should have invested much more in heavy weight equipment.
The drones swarms that is almost ready, is tailored to meet the threat of ISIS, not Russia.
We are, more or less ready to fight China in a year or two. Which, more or less is the pace the confrontation is building in.
So mr. Trump, do it like this, at least that is what I would do.
1. Call mr. Putin. Ask him how he sees it, and try to make amends, and find a way out of this mess. This is your decision, don´t let yourself be discouraged. He is your friend, and he will help you.
2. Try to make amends with the clandestine branch of the defense forces, and make them see China as a problem. They already do, but they need to use more resources on the bastards.
3. Get ready for the show down in Europe. The drone swarms are made for that, that is an easy win, and will project American power again in a humane way.
G-d bless the will to be smart on these things. G-d bless America.
