(ReliableNews.org) – On Monday, November 9, President Donald Trump fired Secretary of Defense Mark Esper. He put Chris Miller in his place in an acting capacity. The new Pentagon chief addressed the armed forces for the first time on Saturday.
In the message, Miller said he was “weary of war,” just like many others. That’s why, he said, the US is transitioning from an active participant in the wars to a “supporting role.” The Pentagon chief went on to say “perpetual war” is against everything the US believes, that’s why it’s time to end “all wars.”
NEW: Acting SecDef Miller makes big news in his "initial message" to the military — sent at 12:43am on Saturday. "All wars must end. Ending wars requires compromise and partnership. We met the challenge; we gave it our all. Now, it's time to come home."

The United States has been at war in the Middle East for almost 20 years. When he won the 2016 election, one of Trump’s promises was that he’d start bringing our troops home, and he’s done that throughout his presidency. It’s great that he finally has an acting chief who feels the same way.
