    Trump has just made one of America's lethal, well respected, potent secret operations units…and took them down a notch. All those SEALS before this, and after, will now be tainted.

    I have a terrible feeling that Gallagher will go psychotic from PTSD and harm or worse, starting with his family. Hope I am wrong but he seems like ticking time bomb.

    Sec. Esper is not bothered that Trump refers to him as "Esperanto."
    Anyone with a shred of loyalty to the U.S. military would have resigned.
    Nobody who signs up to serve Trump survives with honor.

    There was nothing controversial about it. He tried to disobey the president then he got fired. Then the dummy tried to relate his actions to the constitution. Nice try but your desire to be insubordinate has nothing to do with our constitution. By the way Eddie Gallagher is America's chief but in a month no one will remember your name.

    Anyone who has served knows the UCMJ is a joke. Only in the military can they pull what they tried on Eddie. You get a pardoned so they try to get you another way for what you were just pardoned for. Have you ever heard of that in civilian life? Absolutely wrong. To disguise what they are doing they call it a competency review board. The navy made him the team chief that's means they had overwhelming confidence in him. Most of you out there have no idea of how big a deal it is to be made a team chief of a SOF unit. Bach off of America's chief.

    Spencer gave his middle finger to the court decision and tried to retaliate against Gallagher by weaponizing his position and the system to get him in other ways. That kind of rogue behavior and abuse of power should be prosecuted. He got fired, but he needs to be in handcuffs and headed to court himself. I actually agree with Trump on this one, his intervening was justified.

    These terms used to mean something; not anymore when you hide murderers behind phony medals and trident pins, or wings or any other piece of phony tin. A draft dodger running a mercenary army, that is what it has become!

    The ONLY reason why Trump commit such a STUPID and PATHETIC move is because he knows very well that populism works well with the ones who still living in the caves !

    Trump stuck his nose in where it doesn't belong for 2 reasons: 1) he wanted to create yet another distraction from his impending impeachment, and 2) he knows his cultists will think it's proof that he "supports the military," and now he wants to parade his war criminals around on his campaign tour as props. REAL veterans know it means he has absolutely no respect for the military or its leaders.

Spencer playing dangerous games against President Trump.Β  According to the Pentagon statement, Esper learned Friday that Spencer had privately made an offer to the White House to allow Gallagher to retire as a Navy SEAL with his Trident insignia. The Washington Post reports that the proposal was "conditioned on the Trump administration agreeing not to interfere in the proceedings against Gallagher."

    If Esper had any integrity, military honor, or respect for the military code of conduct, he would have resigned. Instead he carried out the draft dodger in chief's orders, and let a war criminal go free with no consequences. Sad, sad, day for our military, and it's reputation around the world.
