Trump has appointed retired Marine general James Mattis to lead the Pentagon. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“President-elect Donald Trump has chosen retired Marine Gen. James N. Mattis to be secretary of defense, according to people familiar with the decision, nominating a former senior military officer who led operations across the Middle East to run the Pentagon less than four years after he hung up his uniform.

To take the job, Mattis will need Congress to pass new legislation to bypass a federal law stating that defense secretaries must not have been on active duty in the previous seven years. Congress has granted a similar exception just once, when Gen. George C. Marshall was appointed to the job in 1950.

An announcement is likely by early next week, according to the people familiar with the choice. Jason Miller, a spokesman with the Trump transition team, tweeted Thursday evening that no decision had been made. Trump’s son Donald Jr., meanwhile, retweeted a report saying that Mattis got the job.”

    Hopefully you two have learned something about Mattis since you made this video. He would rather have diplomacy over war. We are lucky to have him as a voice of reason in this insane Administration.

    if American had to pay for wars by increased taxes they would not ask for it but so far Zionist have managed to convince us to borrow money for wars this way the effect are hidden from people and they have Americas war machine on speed dial and that's why you have 20 trillion dollars deficit its the result of wars
