A former U.S. official with ties to the Trump team described the ousters of [Mike] Rogers and others as a “bloodletting of anybody that associated in any way on the transition with [Chris]Christie,” and said that the departures were engineered by two Trump loyalists who have taken control of who will get national security posts in the administration: retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn and Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner.I don't think people realize the seriousness of what is going on.
Flynn holds the insane view that "We're in a world war, but very few Americans recognize it..."
He thinks the war will "probably last through several generations."
And he has written:
Most American mistakenly believe that peace is the normal condition of mankind, while war is some weird aberration. Actually, it is the other way around.With this guy near Trump, it is a certainty that Trump is going to put U.S. boots on the ground in the Middle East within the first 100 days of his presidency--and that is just for starters.
