Leslie Gelb writes in the Daily Beast….
The U.S. military, officers and enlisted ranks don’t like and don’t trust Democrats and liberals. The bad feelings are mainly about values, style and constancy more than policy. The military feel the Democrats come at common problems from a different place and don’t stick to agreed plans when the going gets rough.
The author goes on to echo basically every negative smear about Democrats, from “they don’t stay the course” to “they are defeatists.” What isn’t mentioned is how ignorant to history Republicans can be. If you don’t believe me, just ask Genghis Khan, Alexander the Great, Britain, and Russia how easy Afghanistan is.
