Thank you so much features of 15 again a nice lift to the market. The headline came out the other day. Of a lesser boots on the ground in Iraq, and I can remember folks the day of the invasion of rock getting out the natural Natural National Geographic map. And our TV studios and going Iraq's large Yes, and we're down to 3000 Paul or 2000 as well. And I said, We've got to get the guy on who starts with Michael Shaara's The Killer Angels. Goes on to Doris Kearns Goodwin's team of rivals. And then down here somewhere, you realize in the endless books of the leader's bookshelf. I have Mr Venus that there's one constant theme. Thank you. Ulysses s. Grant. Frankly, Rommel of Germany of another time in place mass matters at Mr V's joins us Now, of course, with his wonderful books they're required, reads James Trevin is just very simply here. Why are we dealing with 3000 or 2000? X 1000 people in Iraq? What are they actually doing when they're so clearly not a mass? But let's just quickly do the numbers here. At peak. We had 170,000 troops in Iraq and they were mass and they were in a huge combat and people were dying. Dozens a week were dying at one time Now, Tom we're down to at this minute about 5000 and President Trump has cut that in half. What they are doing now is vitally important. They're doing intelligence assessment they're doing. Just explain. They're doing medical support doing special horses against the Islamic state. They're doing above all training of the Iraqi security forces. So this is a business show. Think of it as less of a small number of troops. You have an outsized impact on your overall deal. We've already taken the savings of cutting the mass number. I think it's a mistake to cut this small amount of leverage at this point. Well, why is it a mistake? I mean, I mean, I don't know what the calculated mass number is. But let's first conversation. Called 150,000 troops were miles from that. We are, but what we have correctly gone down to is about 11,000 troops that do all the very specific tasks I mentioned a moment ago. Pulling half of that out at this point is counterproductive to this overall strategy, because you're correct. We're not going to have a strategy of mass. We have a precision guided strategy at the moment, but you still need 5 to 6000 troops do it, cutting that in half looks like a political move to be more than anything else. Admiral. From your perspective. How well trained are the Iraqi forces? Eyes are job Could one argue that we've effectively trained enough of the Iraqis that in fact Les Americans are needed there. I wish I could say that. And I honestly would say that in the moment if I felt that way, but all of the people active duty senior officers mid grade officers I talked to would tell you that The training is still very uneven across the Iraqi military. We've made some progress in training Iraqi special forces a little bit with the Iraqi air forces we still have work to do. It's so unimportant you being political admirals to Venus with great affection for your appearance on the show in your public service to the nation. What permeates Kim Burns effort on Vietnam. Do we have a demonstrably proof that we can train? Distant nation's people to defend themselves or to advance against the enemy. Sure, I'll give you two concrete examples. One is Colombia, which you may recall was the absolute depths of an insurgency Over over 50 year period, We instituted plan, Colombia sent a very small number of troops to Destry 1000 down there and train the Colombians very effectively. To take on that insurgency. It's worked quite well. Another practical example. Thomas in the Philippines, where we see our efforts working with Filipino special forces have had Extremely strong impact against Al Qaeda is Islamic state in exactly in the Southern islands have mended out So yes, there are examples. There are also failures, but I would Make the argument that a small investment like this creates real leverage. It's got a reasonable chance of success, but it's got a zero chance of success if you simply pulled the last women found Admiral. From your perspective. What would you say The state of morale is of America's armed forces. Right now, There's a pretty prominent news article out recently questioning some of those issues as it relates to the president's view of the armed forces. We now have. The drawdown in Iraq gives your assessment Well, let's look at polling data so military times is a very reputed ble source of this D'oh. Ah great deal of polling in the American Armed forces right now. President Disapproval rating is about 50% approval rating is down to about 38%, and that's a result of the freeing of his commentary about military his support for the Confederate flag. And I think also, the policies we're talking about. The military asshole believes that we still have a significant mission to do small numbers of troops compared to the past. But still an important mission in Iraq in Afghanistan in Syria, and that we shouldn't be pulling troops out of traditional alliance structures in South Korea in Germany, so I think his popularity has frayed over the four years he's been in office with the military level far too short a time. We will do this longer. Next time. James Tre Venus with his folks, of course, the leader's bookshelf. If you want a book for the autumn, it was my book of the year a while back, and all I can say is a leader. The leader's bookshelf is absolutely spectacular 50 books by people like McChrystal and Madness and the rest of them. Nimitz by E. W. Potter. Eyes. One of the book selected in the first book, The Killer Angels on Lee and Longstreet at Gettysburg is just extraordinary, Paul. I thought we'd have time for it, but the admiral's tweet the other day. We're off the Atlantic Magazine article. He's They're running up or about the generals. And he said, Well, that's the point. They haven't spoken in silent. Yeah, it seems like that relationship between White House and the and the Chiefs and the senior military breast is not How strong is it probably needs to be futures of 17 futures of 75,.
