In a recent blast, former president Trump claims that taking down the statue of R.E.Lee was very, very bad and that Lee was a winner who would have won in Afghanistan.

While I consider Lee a great general, its hard to forget he wasn't the winner in the Civil War, and he had a hard time especially outside of Virginia.

Lee's greatest moment, as a man, in my opinion, was the dignity he expressed in defeat. In the words of a recent biographer, "he failed, without becoming a failure." That is the lesson the former president should take from Robert E. Lee.

Lee was a winner, except those times he wasn't. You know, Gettysburg and Appomattox.

Lee had no personal experience fighting a guerrilla war and surrendered rather than start one.

Trump's statement is also a criticism of the modern US military for not succeeding where Lee allegedly would have. Trump's administration negotiated the withdrawal of the US from Afghanistan. Not that pesky facts like that would register with the Trumpanzees.

In the 1850s he was stationed in Texas and charged with protecting settlers from the Apache and Comanche.
So I guess he had some experience with that type of warfare.

The Brass. Biden's bumblers.
