LETTER: Biden unfit to be commander in chief

I was astonished to read in the Review-Journal that President Joe Biden said former President Donald Trump is “unfit” to be commander-in-chief. The truth is Mr. Biden is unfit. Compare the performance of both presidents.

Mr. Trump inherited a crisis in the Middle East from the Obama-Biden administration. ISIS was wreaking havoc in the region. Mr. Trump took the advice from his military leaders and implemented their recommendations, and the ISIS threat went away. When U.S. forces in Iraq and Syria came under fire from Iranian proxies, he took out Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Commander Qasem Soleimani.

Mr. Biden’s effort on the other hand has been futile, ineffective and stained the reputation of the United States. Mr. Biden gave the order to pull all U.S. troops out of Afghanistan ahead of civilians against recommendations from military leaders. Who does that? When the Taliban took over the country, he had to rush troops back in to protect the civilian evacuation. Thirteen troops and many civilians were killed. Many more were stranded in Afghanistan. U.S. troops stationed in Iraq and Syria endured attacks from Iranian proxies for months. Mr. Biden’s only response was to have limited attacks on proxy facilities.

I spent 22 years in the military. If you ask me who members of the military would choose to be their commander-in-chief, I assure you it wouldn’t be Mr. Biden.

LETTER: No conspiracy involving Hunter’s laptop

The R-J should acknowledge that Mr. Trump’s lies, frauds, defamations, criminal indictments and convictions are exponentially worse than Hunter’s laptop being evidence or any of the other alleged Biden missteps.

LETTER: Trump tries to win Nevada

Mr. Trump advocating for tax-free tip income is definitely one approach to winning Nevada. But my tip to Mr. Trump is to pick Marco Rubio and show the diversity of the GOP.

LETTER: Red Rock development ‘compromise’ is depressing

Red Rock Canyon is a fragile natural wonder. To claim that 3,500 homes and the traffic that goes with them, and changing the nature of the watershed, will not negatively impact the area is absurd.

LETTER: Russian warships off the Florida coast

It’s strange that the mainstream media are treating Russian combat ships miles off the Florida coast as nothing to see here.

LETTER: Columnist gaslights about Donald Trump

Mr. Trump would have not won if his affair with Stormy Daniels had been made public after the “Access Hollywood” tapes in which Mr. Trump brags that he grabs women by the genitals.

LETTER: A balanced approach on the energy transition

We will never be free of fossil fuels. A balanced approach is needed. Politically doctrinaire positions on both sides won’t help us resolve the current problems.
