    Of course, not being "liberal" enough, he catches flak as choice for National Security adviser. What is amusing in the following quote is so typical of mush for brains among the libtards;

    QUOTE:
    ...
    He asked Gregory, "So what does this tell us about Donald Trump's worldview going forward?" The former NBC journalist replied with his "Islamophobia" and "ignorant" labels of the Trump appointee:

    DAVID GREGORY, AUTHOR, "HOW'S YOUR FAITH?": Well, the fear is that this doubles down on his darker impulses about the Islamic world. Look...General Flynn has made fair criticisms of how this administration dealt with the rising threat that became ISIS. But then, you jump the shark into this kind of Islamophobia...to say that Islam is a political ideology...and not a religion; to indict four billion Muslims around the globe — I mean, that's just short-sighted, ignorant thinking. And that's the kind of impulse that, I think, will give opponents of Donald Trump and watchdogs of Donald Trump a lot of concerns.

    Gregory did acknowledge that "General Flynn has received very high marks from military people that I have talked to — very high-level retired, who say that he is first rate as an intelligence analyst and gatherer." However, he wondered, "The question will be not just those impulses and those kinds of statements, but how does he lead?"

    If one actually reads Islamic scripture/dogma and looks over Islamic history, than the "political ideology" is obvious from Muhammad onward ...
    AND
    "four billion Muslims" in a world of barely 8-9 billion total population is a bit more than most counts would make it. Between 2-3 times more.

    No one does stupid better than Liberals.

        It seems that no media writers know anything deep about Flynn.


        Generals Flynn and Mattis do have one other thing in common, in addition to their military service. Both were dumped before they were due to retire by the Obama administration. General Mattis was relieved of his command of CENTCOM (which covers an area from the Middle East to Pakistan) in early 2013 without so much as a telephone call from the president. The White House had become riled by his dogged questioning of its Iran policy. Even if the nuclear issue could be resolved, General Mattis argued, not nearly enough was being done to counter Iran’s threat to stability in the Middle East.

        General Mattis has continued to be a critic of Mr Obama’s foreign policy which, he believes, has emboldened Russia, China and Iran, who have exploited the president’s reluctance to apply America’s military power. If appointed, he would attempt to steer Mr Trump away from isolationism and deals with Vladimir Putin.

        ............

        General Flynn believes he was fired from his post as director of the Pentagon’s Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) in 2014 because of pervasive political correctness within the Obama White House, which disliked his conflation of Islam with terrorism. It was also infuriated by his insistence that the war against jihadists was being lost, even as Mr Obama was trying to put it behind him.

        He was right that the White House claimed victory over al-Qaeda prematurely. And his reorganisation of the DIA, which encroached on the CIA’s turf and expensively duplicated its intelligence-gathering, contributed to his downfall. But it is also the case that, where once he had been respected by military contemporaries, such as Stanley McChrystal, General Petraeus and General Mattis, with whom he had helped to redefine counter-insurgency after the initial disasters of the Iraq war, concerns had grown about General Flynn’s obsessive behaviour and ill-concealed contempt for civilian control. Insiders claim that he peddled weird theories that came to be known as “Flynn facts”.

          Why? Because he sees war as something to actually be won for a change? The United States hasn't won a single war since WWII. Time to change that.

            America and western democracy did win the Cold War though. Millions of eastern Europeans now have a life not controlled by Soviet Russia.
