Sree, Your imagination based assessment of the power of the CinC with the military, is a bit confusing, but that’s ok, I am pretty sure that it is nonsense, anyway. Here is something by someone who can make clear statements, a Mr Steve Schmidt, when speaking about the t rump’s whim to assassinate Soleimani, in the days after that event.
(Schmidt) claimed that Trump is using the tension between the U.S. and Iran to distract people from the ongoing impeachment process.
“I don’t think his actions in this case are volatile and erratic,” Schmidt explained. “I think they’re entirely predictable. And what’s predictable- looking at the Ukraine issue, looking at every issue- is he over and over again acts in his own political interest. Looking at impeachment, what he did for sure is survey the situation and understood that with this action, with this strike, that he would create a giant smokescreen that clouds and distracts around the issue of impeachment.”
“This is a political act that has endangered the country,” Schmidt continued. “Once again, this is Donald Trump acting in the international arena detrimental to American security interests, now exceeding the outrageousness in Ukraine by an order of magnitude for self. And the result of this is a more dangerous world where Americans will be killed that otherwise would not have been killed.”
So Schmidt believed that the t rump, purposely used the assassination of Solemani as a tactic to distract from the bad press of the Impeachment that was going on at the time. And he (Schmidt was wisely warning of the risks the t rump was subjecting the troops to.)
What actually transpired, if you recall, is that the Iranian backlash, fortunately for us all, resulted in no fatalities, at the time. Only dozens of our troops with various levels of, literally, “shell shock”, aka, neurological damage.
Thanks t rump. Do you care about our troops, at all, except as campaign fodder? I mean, if the Russians did something like offer bounties to the Taliban to kill our troops, you wouldn’t just blow that off would you?
