Pres­i­dent should show thanks to mil­i­tary, not him­self

The State (Sunday) - - Opinion -

The Mid­lands hosts and fully sup­ports our great and self­less mil­i­tary, i.e. Fort Jack­son/mcen­tire Air Base/shaw AFB, so it’s with great sad­ness that I wit­ness our pres­i­dent politi­ciz­ing the mil­i­tary dur­ing this hol­i­day sea­son.

When the pres­i­dent was asked what he was thank­ful for this year, his re­sponse was in­cred­i­bly him­self. Him­self!!! Man up and ac­tu­ally travel to a war zone, travel across the street and place a wreath at Ar­ling­ton Ceme­tery, call some armed ser­vices lead­ers and con­grat­u­late them without telling them what a great job you’re do­ing for them. Chal­lenge the word of any dic­ta­tor or au­to­crat on this planet and oc­ca­sion­ally ac­cept the con­clu­sions reached by our great in­ves­tiga­tive in­sti­tu­tions. Man up and lis­ten to the tape of a jour­nal­ist that died at the hands of Jared’s BFF, an­other au­to­crat. In try­ing to sanc­tion Iran and some­how per­suade them to over­throw their own Ay­a­tol­lah-dom­i­nated govern­ment while prop­ping Saudi Ara­bia up as a gleam­ing ex­am­ple of what they should strive to be is disin­gen­u­ous?

Lest I for­get, it’s not about Amer­ica; it’s about him. Thank­ful for him­self ... – Mark Woods Columbia
