Donald Trump | The Guardian: Jim Mattis tells US troops America has ‘problems’, urges them to ‘hold the line’

In a video posted on Facebook, Mattis says America needs to get the power of inspiration back a comment perceived to be a veiled criticism of Donald Trump

Secretary of Defense James Mattis has told US troops stationed abroad their duty is to hold the line amid partisan division at home.

In comments contained in a video posted to a Facebook page called US Army WTF Moments that appeared to have been taken shot on a smartphone during a visit to Jordan, Turkey and Ukraine this week, most likely in Jordan, Mattis said: Our country right now, its got problems we dont have in the military.

The Observer view on US strategy in Afghanistan

If we do not have a reasonably competent, friendly government in Kabul, nothing the west achieves will last. Ignoring the Afghan nations needs is not an option

Donald Trumps view on the conflict in Afghanistan was highly critical in 2011 when he tweeted that the US was wasting lives and money there. He later termed Barack Obamas strategy a complete waste, saying it was time to come home. Trump stood on his head last week, ordering the deployment of additional American troops and committing the US to an open-ended war that he vowed to fight to win. So which Trump is right the pre-election sceptic or todays ardent warrior? The answer is neither.

When Obama took office in 2009, he raised US troop levels to around 100,000, part of a Nato force of about 150,000. His plan was to turn around a war that had already dragged on too long, then hand over to better-trained and equipped Afghan army and police forces. The handover duly took place in 2014, but the conflict was not over. Since then, security has steadily deteriorated.

Now is the time to enlist UN help in relaunching a comprehensive internal dialogue

Spectacle of swastikas on streets tests America’s free speech standard

Debates about role of journalism have taken much darker turn since far-right white supremacist rally in Charlottesville

Since Donald Trump was elected president in November 2016, American media has been in a perpetual state of both crisis and elation. The unfortunate truth is that often what is bad for a temperate political climate is good for journalism. Subscriptions, viewing figures and readerships to many news outlets have for the first time in several years been given new life by the Trump effect. However, the often rather navel-gazing debates about the role of journalism and the press have taken on a much darker turn since a far right white supremacist rally brought hundreds of tiki torch-waving neo-Nazis on to the streets of Charlottesville two weeks ago.
