In the United States named the likely reason for the resignation of the head of the Pentagon Mark Esper

16

In the US, they are talking about the reasons for the resignation of the head of the Pentagon, Mark Esper. Recall that the decision to resign the Secretary of Defense was made by US President Donald Trump.


According to the latest information coming from the United States, Trump was not satisfied with Esper's work in terms of the pace of implementation of the plan to withdraw American troops from a number of foreign countries. We will remind that earlier Trump announced the withdrawal of part of the contingent or the entire contingent from Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, as well as Germany. It was noted that Esper "delayed the process", which was the reason for his resignation from his post.

With the new head of the Pentagon, the US president intends to speed up the process of withdrawing American troops. We will remind that the acting Secretary of Defense Trump has appointed Chris Miller. It is noteworthy that retired Colonel Douglas McGregor, a supporter of the idea of ​​withdrawing troops from Afghanistan and the Syrian Arab Republic, became Miller's senior adviser.

For Trump, the withdrawal of troops from foreign countries is fundamental, since it was with this slogan that he came to power 4 years ago. But now Trump may not have much time left to complete the process. The fact is that Joe Biden has already declared himself the winner in the elections.

At the same time, Biden added that with his presidency, "America is returning to the international arena." It must be assumed that the 46th president, if it becomes Biden (and the counting of votes continues), may reverse Trump's decision to withdraw troops from Afghanistan.

    ... Nevertheless, an interesting knot is being tied. Let's say Trump had time to withdraw his troops. They didn't even have time to take a breath, Biden orders, well, back .. laughing

      Who implements their slogans after the elections? - Yes, no one, especially since it will not affect the past American elections.

        Trump is not going to leave the presidency at all - he won the election, and with a very decent margin. So decent (with a very high turnout) that in order to compensate for this advantage, so many votes with dead souls had to be thrown in (in the literal sense) that as a result, up to 130% of voters voted in certain districts. There is a huge array of video recordings of stuffing, filling in fake bulletins ... and most importantly - the person who, according to the US Constitution, is obliged to declare the elections valid and the name of the winner ON THE CUT OFF refused to recognize Biden's "victory". But just a huge number of lawsuits were filed in court.
        And Biden was declared the winner ... by the press lol ... Which drowned for him before.
        Those controversial states that Biden counted on already ... do not appear to have voted for Biden - they are counting votes there!
        And then the courts and landings will begin.
        And it is quite possible that the withdrawal of American troops from many countries of the world will become a reality. Trump is really trying to keep his word.
        Once upon a time we thought the same thing about our own ... but it turned out - the opposite.

            A woman, I don’t remember her surname, something like an administration manager. According to the US Constitution, it is she who must declare the winner. She refused to recognize Biden as such.
            Now the votes are being counted and scandals with falsification and stuffing are only growing. It will still be a lot of fun. yes
            But Trump is a tough nut to crack.
            And it was he who first called himself the winner, because he knew the real numbers of those who voted ... and then it BEGAN.

              GSA CEO, Emily Murphy? No, it has nothing to do with the announcement of the president and the recognition of the elections as valid. She simply had to allocate money for organizing the transfer of power (prescribed in the law).

    Esper "delayed the process"
    Speaking in Russian, he openly sabotaged the presidential order. And there are enough of those in the Trump team. The problem of recruiting for key ministries is also facing our country. The adherence of our president to persons of a clearly liberal orientation (financial and economic sector) is not entirely clear. And such problems automatically pull others along with them.

      Lord, here you are clearly an adult and intelligent person ... It would seem.
      The adherence of our president to persons of a clearly liberal orientation is not entirely clear

      Russian President Vladimir Putin in an interview with Russian and foreign journalists in Krasnaya Polyana confirmed that he is "a true liberal and holds liberal views."

      And what is not clear here. The wildest personnel hunger. Well, there was no financial and economic school in the country that was adequate and suitable for the current situation. The one that was focused on the planned economy, but as practice has shown in its pure form, this does not work effectively. What was created in the 90s is essentially a copy of American and European models, just liberal. Better in terms of efficiency, but as you rightly said, it carries along with it the burden of weakly adequate political views. And how to put it better, better than a planned economy, but worse, for example, a mixed model like the Chinese one. This is not to mention the fact that with our resources, position, strength, problems with population size, culture of power and so on, we could develop our own, unique model, effective for us. But apparently there is no one. I have not seen a single one with an adequate, understandable and realizable economic program reflecting the peculiarities of the situation and structure of our country, neither among the opposition, nor among the pro-government structures. There are many loud chants, but little specifics and calculations. So I have to hang around with the liberals, apparently, although, for example, this does not make me happy - the eternal friends of the liberal model - nepotism and corruption in Russian realities bloom much stronger than in the West, and it is even more dangerous because of the low level of the economy, for if they steal in America 10% of the budget - and do not care, but if we have, then large social and economic projects can be delayed and frustrated - it’s just about money. And without a new political and economic model, unfortunately, it is impossible to fight this, no matter how much you plant, and little depends on the personality and title of the manager's position.

    It was necessary to withdraw the troops with the help of the command "run march"! And to drive the equipment on afterburner! Here's a new episode of the "Fast and the Furious" series, it would come out, completely natural shooting, no povillon, no scripts and producers - everything was already directed by Trump himself! !! wassat

    Voices are still counting. Guaido and the Belarusian Juanita Tikhonovskaya also declared themselves winners, but something did not work out for them ... Now one sits in the French embassy and learns to eat frogs with grape snails, and the other hangs around in Lithuania and eats three cans of sprat a day.
    It must be assumed that the 46th president, if it is Biden who becomes him (and the counting of votes continues), may mark Trump's decision to withdraw troops from Afghanistan.
    If this happens, then the Taliban, who currently control 70% of the territory, will actually refuse further contacts with mattresses in terms of resolving the Afghan conflict and will give them a bloody steam room.
