Thank me for my military service by voting for Hillary Clinton: Frank Biggio (Opinion)
Donald Trump as commander in chief would have almost unchecked authority to put military personnel in harm's way, but whose understanding of foreign affairs and military strategy is based largely on instincts rather than analysis, writes Frank Biggio. Frank Biggio is a Marine Corps veteranFrank Biggio  As one of the roughly 22 million Americans who served, or are serving, in the nation's military, I always appreciate when people tell me, "Thank you for your service." My response is always, "You're welcome," and other than the occasional department store discount or free round of drinks, I've never sought to exploit my veteran status to garner any special favors. This year is different. We are two months away from electing a new commander in chief. One of our options includes a man who has glibly spoken about using nuclear weapons in Europe and the Middle East and seems unconcerned about nuclear proliferation by other countries simply because it is "going to happen anyway;" who fails to comprehend the deterrent effect of U.S. troops in South Korea against increasingly belligerent threats by North Korea; who would allow NATO member states on Russia's western border to fall to Kremlin aggressions unless they "pay up;" and who has denigrated the family of an Army captain killed in action while serving his country. This is a mercurial man who will have almost unchecked authority to put uniformed men and women in harm's way, but whose understanding of foreign affairs and military strategy is based almost solely on his instincts rather than analysis.  I served under many commanders. Some were leaders in name only, but most deserved the title by demonstrating core leadership principles, regardless of any stress or hardship, and didn't resort to primitive and distracting antics like belligerent shouting or chest thumping. They led by example, invited collaboration, analyzed conflicting positions and took responsibility for the decisions that ultimately fell to them to make.  When successes occurred, they praised their teams. And when events turned against them, they took responsibility and didn't blame others or make excuses.  Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower drafted a letter on the eve of D-Day which was to be released in the event the invasion failed. He wrote: "If any blame attaches to the attempt, it is mine alone." We of course know that the Allied Forces succeeded after storming Normandy's beaches and Gen. Eisenhower praised the efforts of his teams, from the generals to the privates.  2014: D-Day's legacy of bravery, daring, effective deception and determined leadership carries forward to today: editorial It's inconceivable that Donald Trump would take such a position, either by acknowledging his team for a success (this is the man who claimed "I alone can fix it!" in his nomination acceptance speech), or solely taking blame for a failure. Trump is no Eisenhower. He's more like the fictional Captain Queeg played by Humphrey Bogart in "The Caine Mutiny" -- paranoid, erratic, condescending and ultimately incompetent. There are many other apt analogies, but each is equally frightening when thinking of Trump directing the deployment of our military to today's ambiguous front lines, perhaps just to prove that he can. There are many things to consider when heading to the polls in November. One of those is who should command the nearly 2.2 million members of our active and reserve military forces; who should be the elected leader with the authority to put their lives in jeopardy to protect American interests against evolving threats around the world.  Will we elect a man who, without offering any clarity, boasts that he "will be so good at the military, your head will spin," as if his high school graduation from a military academy validates that claim, and hopes that the electorate will simply trust that will be so? Whose behavior and public comments cause a collective group of 50 foreign policy experts, most of whom are from the Republican Party and have at one time sat in the White House Situation Room and contemplated the implications -- and repercussions -- of deploying our military, to publicly denounce him and the security and foreign policy positions he has proposed?       Related opinion: Donald Trump can't be trusted with the nuclear football - and voters know it: Brent Larkin Polls show that the answer will be "No." But the election is still several months away.  We have an alternative to the embarrassment that is Donald Trump, a candidate who, though not flawless, has actual experience and demonstrated pragmatism, is known and respected by military and civilian leaders in America and abroad and is capable of decisiveness and restraint as the situation requires. I'm with her. This Election Day, please thank me for my service by voting for Hillary Clinton as our president and commander in chief. Frank ("Gus") Biggio, originally of Wooster, Ohio, earned his law and MBA degrees from Case Western Reserve University. He served on active duty in the U.S. Marine Corps infantry from 1993 to 1998 and in the Marines' Civil Affairs Group from 2007 to 2010, deploying to Afghanistan in 2009, service for which he was awarded the Bronze Star. He currently lives in Dubai with his wife and three children.

On battling militant Islam, neither Trump nor Clinton has a clue: Kevin O'Brien
Everything about Islam's war on the West has evolved over the last 15 years, including our leaders' response. It's more timid. Veterans look on as Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks during NBC's "Commander in Chief Forum" Wednesday in New York.Evan Vucci/Associated Press  Militant Islam has been at war with the United States for more than three decades. We noticed 15 years ago Sunday. About half of us decided almost immediately not to take it seriously as a national security issue, but recognized it as a great domestic political issue. The other half tried to take it seriously, but didn't quite know how. The "compassionate conservative" who was going to turn Big Government to a new course that would truly benefit Americans got stuck being a wartime president instead. We needed to make sure terrorists couldn't crash airliners into tall buildings anymore. We needed to make sure our intelligence agencies understood that defeating our enemies in a real war mattered more than defeating one another in turf wars. And we needed to make clear to other nations that harboring terrorists would bring serious consequences. To an extent, we did those things, though we -- all too predictably --gave up on that last one. Too hard. Too expensive. Defending the nation had to be done circumspectly. Defeating our enemies was a delicate process. We chose very early in the game to downplay our enemies' religious motivation. We fought battles over theology with at least as much tenacity as we fought about U.S. policy, military strategy or national defense. In every war, armchair generals use fabulous powers of hindsight to say what the real commanders should have done. In this war, the current U.S. commander in chief -- the guy who bosses the real generals -- prefers the role of armchair professor of comparative religions, lecturing endlessly on who is or is not a genuine Muslim. The president has also taken to reminding us that Americans are more likely to die from slipping in their bathtubs than from terrorism. The next time a terrorist hollers "Allahu akbar!" and starts blazing away in a gun-free zone, I want to think someone's last thoughts will be, "Whoa! How far out of touch with the tenets of true Islam is this guy? And thank goodness I'm not standing in a bathtub right now." For a while, al-Qaida made Americans nervous about flying commercial or hanging around iconic U.S. locations. Now, "lone wolves" inspired by al-Qaida's successor in big-name terrorism, the Islamic State, make us queasy about leaving our houses. Even more than we were 15 years ago, we're living on the front line of this war. Our enemies have figured out that they don't have to finance and plan grandiose attacks when any radicalized dope can drive to the bar or his own office and find Americans in large groups who are squeamish about protecting themselves with guns. Meanwhile, cynical politicians use terrorist attacks to advocate more limits on law-abiding Americans' possession of guns. It doesn't get much more unserious than that. Nor is it likely to get any better during the next four years, no matter who wins November's presidential election. At NBC's "Commander in Chief Forum" Wednesday night, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump inspired no confidence that either is capable of a serious effort toward radical Islam's defeat. Clinton: "We have to defeat ISIS. That is my highest counterterrorism goal. And we've got to do it with air power. We've got to do it with much more support for the Arabs and the Kurds who will fight on the ground against ISIS. We have to squeeze them by continuing to support the Iraqi military. ... We are not putting ground troops into Iraq ever again. And we're not putting ground troops into Syria. We're going to defeat ISIS without committing American ground troops." If defeating ISIS is her highest counterterrorism goal, she's not paying attention. ISIS is getting the current headlines, but it's based on the same principles as the Taliban in Afghanistan, Boko Haram in Africa, Abu Sayyaf in the Philippines, the Chechens in and near Russia, a number of Islamic militias in Indonesia, al-Qaida and its several offshoots, etc. A coherent counterterrorism strategy would accept the religious, worldwide nature of the enemy and the ideological nature of the war against Western civilization, and use the knowledge to the United States' advantage, rather than minimizing the conflict or pretending it's about something else. And if Clinton won't use U.S. ground troops to achieve her "highest counterterrorism goal," what would she use them for? Donald Trump: "I've always said, shouldn't be there, but if we're going to get out, take the oil. If we would have taken the oil, you wouldn't have ISIS, because ISIS formed with the power and the wealth of that oil. ... I would be very, very cautious. I think I'd be a lot slower. She has a happy trigger. You look, she votes for the wars, she goes in Libya." Cautious. Slow. Completely out of touch with the ideological underpinnings and the financing of terrorist organizations. She would act by proxy. He might not act at all. Oh, well. A serious prosecution of the war against radical Islam has waited this long. Now we'll see what difference four more years makes. O'Brien is The Plain Dealer's deputy editorial page editor.

Trump and Clinton's presidential appearance: Darcy cartoon
How does fawning over Putin make Trump look presidential or a strong Commander-in-Chief ? Trump looks more like a useful idiot to Putin. CLEVELAND, Ohio --  Donald Trump has said he doesn't think Hillary Clinton has "a presidential look."   The question is does Trump act like a president, let alone look the part? Tuesday, in an ABC News interview, Trump said of Clinton:"Well, I just don't think she has a presidential look, and you need a presidential look."   Monday, while in Cleveland speaking before a group of men, Trump said with sarcasm, "and she looks presidential, fellows." Granted, Hillary Clinton doesn't look like past presidents.  They were all men, some with full beards.  Trump's comment was predictably sexist.   Spoken like a guy who criticized Carly Fiorina's looks.  Spoken like a guy who runs beauty pageants and a modeling agency that has been accused of taking advantage of young women and immigration loop holes.   Spoken like a guy whose media advisor is Roger Ailes, who was just forced out as head of Fox News as a result of multiple sexual harassment allegations. Spoken like a guy who tweeted cynically that military rapes should have come as no surprise after women were allowed to enlist. During NBC's Commander-in-Chief forum, Clinton looked as presidential as any man who has run.  But she also looked rusty, defensive and like she still hadn't grasped that the official language of the U.S. is not the legalese and wonkese she has proven fluent in. NBC's horrible format and moderator Matt Lauer's performance, further hindered Clinton.    Clinton and Trump were given 30 minutes each to answer a flurry of questions on weighty topics.    Lauer's performance has been universally panned for unfairness, sloppiness and sexism, according to The New York Times. Lauer interrupted Clinton repeatedly.  At one point, when a veteran in the audience asked Clinton for her plan to defeat ISIS, Lauer interjected, telling Clinton to reply "as briefly as you can." While Lauer requested that both candidates refrain from attacking each other, he didn't stop Trump from taking repeated swipes at Clinton and Obama.   Most egregiously, Lauer let Trump's false claim that he was "totally against the war in Iraq" go unchallenged. Lauer taking a softer tone with Trump should have been expected.   Lauer has interviewed Trump many times before on the "Today" show when the subject was just stuff like Trump's NBC show "The Apprentice" not ISIS.    NBC would have been better off even having Al Roker moderate. Trump-Putin bromance Trump may think he has a "presidential look" but he certainly didn't act like a U.S. president during the NBC forum. Is it presidential to fawn over Vladimir Putin as Trump continued to do during the Lauer interview?   While I agree that Obama has been played by Putin more than once, and has come off looking weak, that will never alter my opinion that Putin is really, really bad and dangerous guy. In the U.S., Putin has an 8% approval rating.  Trump is among those 8% having said that Putin is a better leader than Obama.    Putin's political opponents in Russia have  turned up dead, poisoned or imprisoned.   What does Trump think would happen to him if he was living in Russia and opposing Putin? How does kissing up to Putin make Trump look presidential or like a strong Commander-in-Chief ?  Trump looks more like a useful idiot to Putin, who is playing him just as bad as he played Obama. Intel briefing claim How presidential did Trump look talking about a classified intelligence briefing?   A qualified Commander-in-Chief wouldn't even discuss a classified intelligence briefing in public, let alone make the absurd assertions Trump did to Lauer. Trump claimed that he learned in his briefing that the Obama administration wasn't following the advice of the intel analysts.  Trump said he deduced this from reading the body language of the analysts briefing him.   Intel analysts are professionals trained to be non-partisan and just present the information in such situations.    U.S. Generals reduced to rubble. Did Trump look presidential and act like a Commander-in-Chief when he asserted he knows more than U.S Generals, who he said have been reduced to rubble? Apparently, Trump's qualified to speak about U.S Generals because once owned the New Jersey Generals of the defunct USFL, which Trump has been blamed for destroying.  In the same vain, Trump was qualified to speak about U.S. education at Cleveland's Arts and Social Science Academy because he founded the vaunted Trump University.
