Top US general rushes to defend Pentagon after Trump accuses it of colluding with weapon manufacturers to fight endless wars

Army Chief of Staff General James McConville has vehemently rejected Donald Trump’s comments alleging that the military’s top commanders wish to entangle the US in as many wars as possible in order to enrich weapon manufacturers.
“I can assure the American people that the senior leaders would only recommend sending our troops to combat when it is required in national security and in the last resort,” McConville, a Trump appointee, said during an online conference on Tuesday. “We take this very, very seriously in how we make our recommendations.”

The general added that many of the US commanders have sons and daughters that currently serve in the military and some of them “may be in combat right now.” The general declined to more directly respond to Trump’s allegations, saying the military should remain out of politics.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder just how many of Army Chief of Staff General James McConville's personal investments .... are focused in the worlds of weapons businesses.

And sir, please forgive my unbridled cynicism; but after seeing +/-18 rounds of Presidential elections, at 71, the party which seems to inevitably seize the White House, no matter the name or party of the President-Elect, is, consistently, the war party.
