The captain's wife. In the United States named a candidate for the post of head of the Pentagon under Biden


The leading American media, which proclaimed the representative of the US Democratic Party, Joe Biden, the winner in the presidential race, write that Michele Flournoy, who will turn 60 in December, may become the head of the Pentagon in the new administration. In any case, she is called the main candidate for this post.


It should be noted that Floornoy is a supporter of the unilateral use of military force to protect US interests. During the presidency of Bill Clinton, she worked as a deputy assistant to the head of the Pentagon.

She was responsible for developing strategies and countermeasures plans, dealing with Russia, Ukraine and Eurasian issues. She was awarded three State Distinguished Service Awards.

In February 2009, the U.S. Senate approved Floorny as Deputy Secretary of Defense for policy under President Barack Obama. After the new appointment, she became the highest-ranking woman in the history of the American military department.

In February 2012, Flornoy resigned from her position, motivating this with a desire to devote herself to her family. In November 2014, Obama wanted to appoint her to the post of head of the Pentagon. However, she then refused the offer, declaring her rejection.

Flornoy persuaded Obama to increase the American troop contingent in Afghanistan to 68 in 2009. In addition, it was she, who had personal influence over the president, who is behind the US military intervention in Libya in 2011. This could not be prevented by the opposing members of Congress, the head of the Pentagon Robert Gates, key advisers and aides to the owner of the White House, and personally Vice President Joe Biden.

In June 2020, while attending an Israel Political Forum webinar, Flurnoy expressed concern about Tel Aviv's proposed unilateral annexation of part of the West Bank. She said this could lead to the withdrawal of Congress from the annual US aid to Israel in the amount of almost $ 4 billion.

In addition, Flurnoy informed Rebecca Heinrichs of the Hudson Institute that she was against canceling economic sanctions against the DPRK and Iran. She believes that Washington should pay attention to the Indo-Pacific region, "but not dismissing the issues of the Middle East", developing relations with Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Qatar.

Floorny is married to William Scott Gould, 63. He is a retired captain who served 26 years in the US Navy. In the period 2009-2013, he served as the 5th US Deputy Secretary of State for Veterans Affairs. Following his retirement, he was named Executive Vice President of CareFirst (Health Insurance).

Considering the above, it is not difficult to guess that the possible appointment of Floornaya to the post of head of the Pentagon does not bode well for Moscow. Although it's time to get used to the fact that any appointment in the US administration does not bode well for Russia.

    Portfolios share smile What will they do if Trump wins the trial?
    By the way, this also applies to all sycophants who rushed to congratulate old Joe, from Estonians to Berlin inmates.
    Yes, and our home-grown critics of the regime that something is not heard. Local elections categorically did not suit them, but then they wrapped their tongue around the tailbone and not a sound winked

        Probably only Russian agents can say that, these would rather say eep.
        All the same, in vain the citizens share the skin of the half-finished coyote. Apparently completely unbearable winked

      from Estonians to Berliners ...

      Not for all Estonians: Estonian Interior Minister Mart Helme and Estonian Finance Minister Martin Helme announced on TRE radio that the US election results were rigged and Joe Biden's assumption of the presidency would be the beginning of America's decline.

      In my opinion, there is not even a question that these elections were rigged, - said Martin Helme. - In my opinion, all normal people should oppose this. It makes no sense for you to talk about any democracy or rule of law, if elections can be so simple, so brazenly and massively falsified.

      If this passes, if Trump is removed from power, then the Constitution is no longer valid in America, "he added.

          It's more difficult there.

          Estonians are very different from Lithuanians and Latvians. They are more close to Swedes and Finns. Their economy is aimed at unity with Scandinavia. And the Scandinavians are not outspoken admirers of the United States. While Lithuanians and Latvians are frank American licking.

          Estonians work in Estonia, in contrast to the general migration of other sprats to the UK, Germany and Norway.

          I myself am from Riga, so this whole gang of watering cans is right outside the windows.

    Narkarkal winked

    Interior Minister Mart Helme on Monday announced at a press conference that he was stepping down from his post as minister.

    “Last night, after looking at all this slander and lies produced by the Estonian media, I decided to resign. I’m fed up. I didn’t do anything that would undermine Estonia’s defenses. I didn’t say anything that isn’t said American media. Free American media, "Helme said. He noted that Joe Biden is not the president of the United States, he is only an elected president and his powers will be confirmed only after the end of all legal proceedings.

    Helme noted that no one will be able to "put a muzzle on him": neither journalists, nor the prime minister, nor the president, nor the faction, nor anyone else. "I will say what I think is necessary. What is in my heart. And no one will silence me," Helme said.
