Bull fucking shit man. Trump keeps on replacing these competent military commanders he is going to harm the combat effectiveness of the military. That's a guarantee and I speak from a position of experience who has had incompetent commanders killed in combat (along with good men underneath their command who didn't need to die) and with incompetent commanders replaced by competent leaders above some of these incompetent commanders too who couldn't get the respect of their men to be an effective leader in combat.
I promise you and you take this to the bank my friend and mark my words, the Trump administration isn't going to get anything out of our enlisted men in the armed forces if they insist on firing competent commanders and replacing them with incompetent commanders who toe Trump's party line. And if the military can't get anything out of our enlisted men because they don't respect the commanders Trump puts in charge of them, the military might as well hang it up when it comes to being an effective fighting force. EVERYTHING starts with good leadership when it comes to being effective.
War doesn't care about any party line or your opinion. War judges you solely on your merits and your merits alone. It's an equal opportunity employer and it will give a fair shake to everybody in deciding who lives and who dies. It doesn't care if you are white, black, Hispanic, Asian or Democrat or Republican. The only thing war cares about is if the commander is competent and if the commander is incompetent then he is killed off along with his men underneath him or by his men if his men has seen enough combat and their fair share of good and bad commanders.
It doesn't care what Trump or the political leadership in Washington wants. I'm just telling you reality from a position of real world experience as a former enlisted man myself who has combat experience. Trump can't make enlisted troops respect the commanders who he puts in charge of them and he isn't doing any favors for himself by replacing commanders who have the respect of their enlisted men. If you don't have the respect of your men who you command, you might as well just resign from your command before you do serious harm.
You think Trump is taking the military vote for granted?
