Peter Bergen, CNN National Security Analyst: Trump's brilliant choice of McMaster

(CNN)President Donald Trump's appointment of Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster to be his national security adviser is a brilliant decision.

McMaster, 54, is the smartest and most capable military officer of his generation, one who has not only led American victories on the battlefields of the 1991 Gulf War and of the Iraq War, but also holds a Ph.D. in history.

it scares me that the media is actually praising a Trump nominee...

McMaster's isn't cray-cray, a bigot, a neo-con or a Goldman Sachs Executive,

As a result, he's a rare Trump Appointee.

Hopefully he has sonething in common with general Flynn and pethaps and hopefully his boss POTUS Trump. He wants better relations with Russia the world's dominant and most powerful country. Perhaps by recognizing this we can difuse and perhaps end Cold War 11.

Of course we can't "know" the outcome of a war without figting it. With that said US forces are demoralized, poorly trained, worn down, poorly led, and are armed with outdated waeapons of inferior quality. As such, no one
Who cares about them or their families would lead them into sucidal conflicts with the major world powers. If General McMaster can grasp this, perhaps he isn't crazy.
