The US commander who has been leading the war against ISIS told CNN Friday that he disagreed with Donald Trump's decision in December to pull troops out of Syria and warned that the terror group was far from defeated, in a stark difference of opinion with the President. Joseph Votel, the top American general in the Middle East, also said that the US-backed forces on the ground in Syria were not ready to handle the threat of ISIS on their own.

Guess that General neds to be Fired!

Sarah write up a humiliating "You're Fired" tweet for that insubordinate scum... take his clearance... drop him off far from home with no ride.

Humpy knows way more than any old stupid 4-star General.

Four stars is not as good as 5 stars and everyone knows that our Dear Leader Humpy is 5 star all the way.

Trump said that by pulling troops out of Syria, he (personally) saved 3 million lives.

This general suggests that was not a good idea. Saving 3 million lives was not a good idea? Or is it more likely that the move did NOT save 3 million lives and Trump is just talking out of his ass?

I'm not a General, but I'd be concerned with the intentions of ISIS and the Suez Canal. They could become a minor headache in the future.
