U.S. retired general and Secretary of Defense, James Mattis, has said the policy of the American military now in the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq is moving from one of attrition to one of annihilation.
The Leftist media doesn’t like this so much.
The Washington Post in particular yesterday was upset that Mattis is annihilating the terrorists so effectively. “A military policy run solely by the Pentagon creates confusion,” writes the Post.
One reason the Left is upset is that having a warrior in charge of fighting a war shows how incompetent and purposefully feckless the Obama administration was.
Another reason may be the Left just simply has an affection for jihadis, hence the blind support for an open border policy for terrorists. Our corrupt media is also now using supposed ‘higher civilian casualties’ as a criticism of the Trump adminstration taking the fight hard to those that want to kill us. “Can’t we just give them jobs instead?” is the Left’s mantra.
