Former Defense Secretary Mattis Slams Trump Over Protests | Time

Former Secretary of Defense James Mattis declared in an article in Foreign Affairs on Monday that the “America First” foreign policy had damaged national security, and called on Joe Biden to “eliminate ‘America first'” from U.S. strategy.

Mattis resigned in December 2018, citing policy disagreements with the president, who had just ordered a troop drawdown in Syria. In his resignation letter, Mattis said that the U.S. needed to do more to show “respect” to American allies.

In October 2018, then-Secretary Mattis gave a speech in which he said that “when we talk about America first, it’s not America alone.”

In his new article, however, Mattis says the opposite, calling for the “end of America First”:

The United States today is undermining the foundations of an international order manifestly advantageous to U.S. interests, reflecting a basic ignorance of the extent to which both robust alliances and international institutions provide vital strategic depth. In practice, “America first” has meant “America alone.” That has damaged the country’s ability to address problems before they reach U.S. territory and has thus compounded the danger emergent threats pose.

In January, when President Joe Biden and his national security team begin to reevaluate U.S. foreign policy, we hope they will quickly revise the national security strategy to eliminate “America first” from its contents, restoring in its place the commitment to cooperative security that has served the United States so well for decades. The best strategy for ensuring safety and prosperity is to buttress American military strength with enhanced civilian tools and a restored network of solid alliances—both necessary to achieving defense in depth. The pandemic should serve as a reminder of what grief ensues when we wait for problems to come to us.

Mattis also says that while the greatest threat America faces today comes from China, the U.S. should seek greater peace, not confrontation. He calls for cooperation with China “in areas of overlapping interests, such as pandemic response, climate change, and nuclear security.”

  • HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL OF YOU.

    • And to you, Jeff. Blessings.

       

  • The greatest threat that Amrica faces are treasonous pieces of shit like Mattis!!!!

    • You are right, Douglas. Anyone disloyal to Trump and anyone turning against Trump are the greatest threats to America. It's treason and should be prosecuted accordingly.

  • Depending on others for one's security is not security at all... it is reckless and irresponsible. 

    Inter-dependence creates a collective mentality and only works when everyone supplies an equal measure to the task... which did not happen under Obama.

    NATO has not kept up their part of the Defense Treaty for several decades, relying on American manpower, technology, and warfighting capabilities to carry the day.  That came to an end under Pres. Trump, but we are hearing VP Biden intends to return to the past performance of NATO and its failings to fairly distribute the burden of security among its members.

    • Agreed. Biden is an "in your face" rejection, both in method and declared intentions, of the conditions and reasons the populist President was elected to correct. NATO was one of them.

      This twisted farce of an election, which nessesarily will have results, just could not have recklessly been aquiesced to by voters knowing they had a vital stake in its outcome. Joe is monumentally unsuited for the Oval office, and could only gain the voters selection through fraud. It is that obvious that the tabulations have been computer tailored in roughly real-time for a bare Biden victory in key large-electorate winner-take-all states.

      Pending a fraudulent result, shall we see if the People are willing to risk the sweat equity of life and limb to secure a future for humanity? 

      It will mean: subduing the enablers of the NWO, and trying and condemning the leadership. Nothing new in global terms.

  • "Cooperative Security" is newspeak for capitulation.  The practice of trading liberty and wealth (while it lasts) for peace... and getting neither.

    • Seems so!

      I found my Chihuahua imagery  and the Lawyer protagonist from the movie,"To Kill a Mockingbird"  very apropos.

      Hopefully you enjoyed it too.

      I wonder how much each of those four stars were paid for?
