Ann Coulter: Pointless Wars Destroy Presidents And Don’t Help The Nations Which Host The Wars

Like I, arch-conservative author Ann Coulter does not see how getting involved in another Middle Eastern civil war (Syria) is going to do anything positive for the United States.  She made these comments when questioned by Tucker Carlson on Fox News about the recent missile attack on a Syrian airfield, ordered by President Donald Trump.

Puzzled by the missile attack, Coulter talks about the mindset of many of the military men who currently surround the President, likening that mindset to an idea depicted in the movie Dr. Strangelove.

My response to this dilemma in which the President finds himself is that he is the one who hand-picked these COINdinista men from the upper echelons of the Bush/Obama Military ranks.

Why Trump picked James Mattis and H. R. McMaster for their key positions, I cannot explain in any rational way.  Neither can Ann Coulter.

There were other military men with actual combat experience who would have been much less-inclined to jump feet-first into any more Muslim State internecine civil wars than we have already blundered into, wars which Coulter very effectively enumerates during her comments.

Trump picked what he’s got.

In case you haven’t noticed, the United States has now been at war or meddling in the politics of the  Middle East for nearly sixteen years.  And exactly what do we have to show for the lost lives and limbs of thousands of our best and bravest?

  1. Afghanistan is a civil-war-torn Shariah-compliant state.
  2. Iraq is a civil-war-torn Shariah-compliant state.
  3. Libya is in chaos, sundered and shredded by Muslim tribal militia conflicts.
  4. Egypt is once again in the hands of the military after the Muslim Brotherhood revolutionary disaster.
  5. Iran is a Shariah-compliant Muslim state.

America is so war-weary we don’t even know we’re worn out.

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.

    Yes, Obama and Clinton saw the Muslims in the streets in early 2011 as agents of radical change and backed them. Look at Libya now. The US needs to disengage from that part of the world.
