Neocon Ex-General to Be Trump’s National Security Advisor

General Michael T.Flynn as National Security Advisor, and the inevitable return of this neocon coterie of his mentors and acolytes to positions of influence, it is likely the future Trump regime will pursue their agenda chaos in the Middle East and possibly with Iran more recklessly than ever.
