Guardian: Trump views US troops as disposable, the Russian bounty scandal makes that clear

Time and again, the president has failed to protect military personnel. For Trump, he always comes first, no matter who dies


Guardian: Donald Trump likes to suggest he has got the back of US soldiers battling America’s foes around the world. It was a big theme of his 2016 campaign and his West Point speech earlier this month. So great was his boundless care for America’s fighting men and women, he said, that he would halt the endless, costly foreign wars prosecuted by his predecessors – and bring them home.

Trump does not deny such an intelligence finding was presented in February, or possibly even earlier. When asked why he had not acted on it to save lives, the White House first claimed the intelligence was weak and inconclusive. When that was rebutted, Trump claimed he was not told about it. So which is it?

Many suspect Trump was intent on appeasing Vladimir Putin, his sinister chum in the Kremlin, who the former British MI6 spy Christopher Steele alleges has some kind of personal or financial hold on the president .

  1. The stance on this issue for vets should be, Trump is not the first but he has to dam well be the last. Long is the list. Short is the remaining time. The army of the dead cry not for vengeance , but for justice. Most often it is depicted by a woman for a reason. Deal with it.
