    A commander has to have clear ROE and act within those strict guidelines.

    The question is simple, do you think that President Trump should make the decisions or should he defer to the generals? If you think that Trump should make the decisions are you saying that he is indeed the best qualified person to make those decisions?

    "The decisions" or specific decision/direction concerning the ROE in that theater of operations.? "The decisions" is kind of vague.

    when haven't they had that authority? A provocative and uncertain combat posture between opposing forces is inherently dangerous. That's never a good thing. War is not a good thing. Period.

    irrelevant. He's the CIC. Which means, he has the ultimate authority as well as the responsibility. Whether or not he's qualified to make the decision is a separate issue. As clearly he's not.

    the last thing the sailors you refer to want is being drawn into an military conflict. They sign up for it. They know it might happen. But, their lives aren't some prop to be used flippantly like they don't matter. It always cracks me up how quickly people are willing to send other people out to fight and die for their beliefs.
    Thanks from Hollywood

    You are complaining about Trump passing these decisions off to the generals. WHO do you think is more qualified to make those decisions that you are complaining about, President Trump or the generals? It's a pretty simple question, surely you can answer it.

    Okay, so you say that he is clearly not qualified to make the decisions, then why do you object to his deferring this to generals who are qualified to make the decisions?

    Exactly. The authority and responsibility resides in the Office. Which he why we must be careful in choosing the person to hold that office.
    Trump is just the person that, unfortunately, currently holds that office.

    I posed a very clear and relevant question. Answer it or don't. Don't need to hear more of your whining about someone criticizing Trump.
    Why in the fuck do you expect me to answer your questions while you ignore mine.
    Just who do you people think you are?
