See this guy? Big time General in the USA. Made a big decision toward the end of the Trump presidency to make sure that Trump would not idiotically (like he did everything else) start a war with China. But with the way things are in the US these days, this guy will probably get thrown under the bus when he really should be given a medal for valor. I don't believe he acted only like a general in this case. I believe he acted like a real American who was afraid that his country would start a war with a major power because of some lunatic. And can you really blame him? Four years of lunacy caused a lot of people in the US to doubt a lot of things. The country really needs to admit they pulled a boner when they elected Trump. And give this guy a medal for saving the country from even more insanity
