A good leader uses war as a last resort
I find it amusing that Donald Trump and my congressman, Rep. Chris Collins, claim President Obama is weak. What they both mean is that Obama is not quick to put our military in harm’s way. This comes from two individuals who have never served in the military.
Trump and Collins think Russian President Vladimir Putin is a strong leader. Putin is a dictator, unlike Obama. Our president must work with the Senate and the House of Representatives.
Trump says he loves our veterans, but what has he done for veterans before he started running for president?
As a Vietnam War veteran, I want a leader who uses military force as a last resort. That does not mean he or she is weak, just intelligent to look for other solutions first.
