    If Robert E. Lee was alive today, i don’t know if even he’d want to be associated with Trump. 😅

    Why are you still giving him a voice? While he was “President” no one could wait until they didn’t have to talk about him anymore, yet here we are… still talking about him.

    Twitter banned Trump from tweeting… I wish we could ban him from talking.

    It was a civil war fought over states rights. Not unlike what’s happening in Texas.

    It’s pretty simple. He’s keeping Afghanistan in the news because it hurts Biden’s popularity

    He changes the headlines when he does something unpopular. Don’t. Feed. the. Troll.

    The only way Lee could’ve “won the war in Afghanistan” or anyone for that matter is if you’d have glassed the place. Can’t change idealogy by bombing them. That being said, the “war” was “won” for twenty years. It was time to let it go.

    As a brief aside, I am SO honoring newer PBS shows- and several others, treating “other ‘skin colors’ as equals. About daggone time!

    Lee was a good general working with a lack of resources but he fought that war almost exclusively in Virginia and made many mistakes as did all the generals during the civil war. Was he a genus, the history would suggest no. Was he hamstrung by the civilians in the confederate government, yes. There is no reason to believe that Lee would have had any better luck with the political system today.
