Chaos

Redneckgeezer posted some lines which President Trump said at the Gridiron.   One in particular caught my attention.

On White House turnover: “So many people have been leaving the White House. It’s invigorating since you want turnover. I like chaos. It really is good. Who’s going to be the next to leave? [Top aide] Steve Miller, or Melania?” He added on the first lady: “She’s actually having a great time.”

Chaos:  complete disorder and confusion;  a confused mass or mixture;  the inherent unpredictability in the behavior of a complex natural system

Chaos is the reason nobody can figure Trump out or predict his future actions.  It’s chaos to everyone else but to Trump, it’s controlled chaos.   Chaos is the reason our military, if left alone, does so well in battle and was recognized as such by our adversaries.

    There is an issue here that needs explanation. I read about this decades ago.
    The problem with collectivist governments is that all political power is concentrated
    in the hands of a tiny ruling oligarchy. When people like Joseph Stalin and Adolf
    assumed power, they became their own best general. To a lesser degree, the
    same thing happened with Truman and Johnson in the Korean and Vietnam
    conflicts.

    In collectivist regimes, the loss of a commanding officer resulted in utter chaos!
    The American soldier has always been taught to seize the initiative and move
    the football down the field. When German forces hit 10 percent casualty
    rates, they raised the white flag. When faced with casualty rates many
    times higher in the Pacific Theater, our guys became more ruthless!

    The only reason Soviet Soldiers fought so tenaciously was that Stalin had
    execution squads behind the front lines. While Hitler kept his best generals,
    Stalin had them executed because he did not want popular generals who
    might challenge his power or effect a coup. Stalin could have reduced
    military and civilian casualties by 50-70 percent by keeping the best of
    his commanders.

    George Patton, Chesty Puller, Charles Whittlesey, and others got the job
    done! Enlisted men like Audie Murphy, Seargent York, John Basilone and
    others fought like fucking demons when the shit hit the fan or their
    commanding officers fell. One cannot exercise initiative when someone
    is holding a gun to their heads!

    Officers or enlisted men are not automatons. If you want to win, hire the
    best. The greatest weapon in the American military is that space between
    the ears of a true soldier. Inherent in this Chesty Puller quote is that
    when you are surrounded, you can shoot in any direction and you can
    kill the motherfuckers! This is also why we will never lose a conflict if
    the political class backs you up (This includes Korea and Vietnam:)
