Commander in Chief Trump: in words is not enough: an 8 year old is dead

Updated on February 1, 2017
Source

Getting people killed, your own SEALS and others, is serious BUSINESS. Get it right! The first time, Please.

Mr. Trump was "in over his head" when he signed off on this raid. Mr. Trump has to depend on his advisors, on the left and on the right, to give him the best advice, hopefully, sound advice, to make good decisions, and then he had to sign off on them. Mr. Trump ordered this raid. He signed off on it. He probably does not have the experience or the intuition to see that a raid like the one they pulled off earlier this week, on last Sunday, actually, was doomed for failure. The risk was just too great. That is why one military official had to admit, "Almost everything went wrong."


This is a new day. All that President Trump can do, at this time, is to learn from this messy situation and move forward.

There is a lot of damage that has been done to Mr. Trump's reputation because of this excessive bloodshed. Lets acknowledge the fact, "Boots on the Ground," to attempt to succeed, at accomplishing a mission involving "the collection of information that will likely provide insights into the planning of future terror plots," is dangerous business. Especially when the raid involves flying a very unstable aircraft ( MV-22 Ospreys are tricky aircrafts to fly, even for very experienced pilots). Some people see the MV-22 Osprey as a helicopter-like aircraft, but it is not. I have been told that Osprey's are more tricky or unstable that helicopters, in some situations. I don't know the facts. I am not a pilot or an engineer.

What I am, however, is pretty competent physician. I am highly competent in Military medicine, Bone marrow transplantation research, and Japanese Nature Farming ( I learned Japanese Nature Farming methodologies while living in Japan for 4 years). I used to "hang-out" with Japanese Nature Farmers and they taught me a few things.

I was sent to Japan for 4 year to practice medicine at a medical clinic, a Primary Health Care Clinic, that was owned by U.S. Marines. It was located on the slope (in a very sacred place) of Mount Fuji, Mount Fuji being a 12,000 foot mountain. A Samurai training camp used to be located on this site that is now controlled by U.S. Marines. I was sent there because I was highly respected for my abilities to relate to, and work with "elite war fighters." In my practice in "Field Medicine," I had worked with Marines, Navy Sailors, Navy SEALS (Navy SEALS are Navy Sailors also, by the way), U.S. Army soldiers, Air Force people, etc. The etc. is important because military people from other countries have come to my clinics, from time to time, for treatment also (Mormon Missionaries also reported to my clinic for medical care, in Japan, and in the Washington, D.C., and in the Northern Virginia area, when I practiced medicine there, as I practiced medicine in the streets and in my clinic, free of charge. I treated hundreds of homeless people on the streets, for free.

U.S. Navy SEALS liked my ways. They liked my quality of care, my customer service, and my humanity. Some Navy SEALS treated me like I was an Navy SEAL myself, but I was not a SEAL, of course. I was just me.

Getting back to that raid in Yemen, last Sunday, where so much blood was shed. President Trump ordered the raid, "the Buck stops" with President Trump! Navy SEALS carry out orders passed down to them from above. That's all.


This can be said about any Military group. No matter the country. The Chinese, the Russians and all military groups take their orders from above. If you have to hate somebody, hate the guys who give bad orders from above.

SEAL Team 6 may be getting "a bad Rap" from "a raid gone bad" on last Sunday. I am sure that SEAL Team 6 is not happy about having to bury their Navy Chief who died in the raid. I know that they are not happy when innocent women and children get killed when they are doing their job. By the way, it has been said that some of the women were shooting at the SEALS. This situation makes for an ugly outcome. People die!

God have Mercy!

What a pity!

My reputation was great because I could diagnose problems, the simple and the complex medical problems, using "the History Taking" and "the Physical Examination" workup of my patients. Lab work and X-ray work is very good, but I could use the History and Physical Exam to diagnose most medical problems. People came to me with problems like Thyroid cancer, GI obstructions, Appendicitis, ear infections Strept-throat infections, middle ear infections, cystitis, muscle-skeletal problems, etc., etc. I could diagnose the problems, treat the problems that I could treat, locally at my clinic, and send the more serious medical and surgical problems to hospitals that were equipped and prepared to care for my patients.

What have I mentioned my personal experiences to you above? Why have I taken great pains to let you know the kind of people that I have cared for? It is because I am going to try to make a case for the humanity of U.S. Navy SEALS.

U.S. Navy SEALS very human and they care about people. Many of them came to me for medical care (Primary Care) because

      You can live life to the fullest, for yourself, without regards for others. There are a few unselfish billionaires. But very few. Most live life to the fullest, looking out, primarily, for their own interests.

      Do you mean he has taken advantage of life more than any other? He does seem to live life to the fullest!

      yeah, we know. as he allegedly said in phone call to aussie pm, he'd get "politically crucified" if he doesnt keep up the tuff guy image...which includes turning away from this country many desperate kids.

      you wanted wall, you wanted immigrants out, you wanted christian rule.

      now, he must deliver, and those who dont hold your beliefs can only look on in wonderment....is this america???

      Dr. Haddox...you also help maintain my belief of liberals being detached from facts, truth and reality. You may not be able to understand this, but President Trump's actions have strengthened his support from his base. He's doing what he said he would do. As I said before, liberals will be out of power for a long time. Keep it going. Let people see who you really are. It only makes conservatives stronger.

      Let's not talk about politicians who lie all the time. This discussion was not able liers. Everyone knows that President Trump is the greatest liver ever lived. He won the White House based on lies. This is not a partisan discussion. This this discussion is not even based on Navy SEALS. Republicans, themselves will, eventually, deal with problems concerning Mr. Trump. He is their greatest problem, not Liberals. He will destroy the Republican party unless Republicans act to check his attitude and actions.

      LMC...You are an example of everything I think about liberals. You are clueless...you think Benghazi was about the death of Navy Seals? You have no idea. Was there a rescue attempt for these Navy Seals that was ordered to stand down...as in Benghazi? Did the President and Secretary of State lie to the American public as well as United Nations and claim this was the result of a YouTube video as happened in Benghazi? Were requests for additional security ignored...as in Benghazi? I could go on...but you've made the point...as do most liberals...you do not know what you are talking about. The good thing is this is what will keep you out of power for a long time.

      did you miss the point, mike? its not liberals who have made a point of blaming presidents for navy seals deaths...its been republicans doing that.

      more hearings on benghazi than hearings on 9/11, where 3,000 americans died.

      benghazi being blamed on barack obama and hillary clinton.

      the barack/hillary accusers like to play up the seals deaths, as a show of their superior patriotism...

      where are they, now that a seal has died under trump?

      Guess what? There's more to it that what is in this hub. http://www.businessinsider.com/awlaki-killed-seal-...

      "Awlaki was killed in a CIA Predator drone strike in 2011, the first time an American citizen was targeted and killed in such a way. Another US citizen, Samir Khan, who published the Al Qaeda magazine Inspire, was also killed in the strike....About two weeks later, a US drone strike killed Awlaki's 16-year-old son, Abdulrahman. US officials denied he was their target."

      Where were the liberals then? Where was their outcry against then President Obama? Huh? Can you say hypocrites?

      Dear Oztinato, you are correct. Thank you for complimenting me on my hub. Mr. Trump's lack of knowledge and his lack of true and deep appreciation for the men and women who serve us and our country is going to be his undoing. He lacks true feelings for people. It is easy to use people to one's advantage, "using them to death" and not shedding a tear upon their death. I pity Mr. Trump. I feel sorry for people who lack knowledge and feelings.

      A well written and timely hub.

      Donald has blood on his hands already and this is just the start.
