Why Donald Trump Needs a Realist Secretary of Defense
Secretary of Defense James Mattis is a good man and a patriot who has served his country with distinction. President Trump was right, however, in asking for his resignation because Mattis represents the Washington foreign-policy establishment that has mindlessly kept the U.S. military involved in unnecessary wars across the globe. President Donald Trump ran on a realist platform, decrying “stupid wars,” and vowing that there would be “no more nation-building.” Classic thinking in Washington’s swamp, however, holds to the demonstrably false premise that the application or threat of force is necessary to keep us safe; occupying foreign lands with U.S. combat troops is almost the default position of the foreign policy’s elite group-think. One of the problems from which Mattis and other establishment-thinkers suffer is a disconnect from how a majority of Americans think.
