The United States, Britain, and France struck targets in Syria on Friday night to penalize the regime in Damascus for its alleged use of chemical weapons against civilians a week ago.

To the Wall Street billionaires, politicians, and captains of industry who surround the president, loyalty equates with obsequious, sycophantic praise for Trump himself.
Next to all the unqualified and unappetizing kooks in the Trump cabinet, Secretary of Defense James Mattis is eminently level-headed and, as Danziger notes, he understands that the most frightening threat to national security is not China or even Russia, but climate change.
Our story on March 13 concerning Secretary of Defense James Mattis’ views on the relationship between climate change and national security was based on excerpts from unpublished written exchanges between Mattis and several Democrats on the Senate Armed Services Committee following his Jan. 12 confirmation hearing.
In his debut trip to Europe as Pentagon chief, Mattis is set to echo longstanding U.S. calls that European allies invest more on defense, something his predecessors under Republican and Democratic administrations have done for years.
While Donald Trump constantly refers to his incoming defense secretary James Mattis by an old nickname, Danziger sees why someone else might be called “mad dog.”
Mattis would be the first former U.S. general to become defense secretary since George C. Marshall took the job in 1950.
