On Monday, the US President Donald Trump appointed Lt. General Herbert Raymond McMaster as 'national security adviser,' after the dismissal of Michael Thomas Flynn, his predecessor. This assignment should bring a stable season to NSC, the main department for the national security. The appointment of McMaster led to President rare praise from both sides of the political class.

General McMaster is the new head of security: his ideas and his goals

McMaster became part of WH staff with different goals: to strengthen counterterrorism, consolidating relations with Russia and improving national security measures with new military policies, all situations very dear to President Trump.

The Lt. General is a graduate of West Point, and he attended a Ph.D. in military history. During the two wars in Iraq, he was a valiant commander of troops and subsequently he was chosen as Special Advisor of the top US commander.

During the second war in Iraq he was deployed to Tal Afar, a city in a northern upset by divisions, and he evidenced that it was possible to achieve, even temporarily, the peace between the different factions. Gen. McMaster also assisted the NATO operation in Afghanistan, after the mission enhancement of 2010 by President Obama. Lately, Mc Master was chosen as chief of ARCIC, the Army Capabilities Integration Centre of Fort Eustis.

A strategist to the command of national security: will change national immigration policy and Russia relations

As the first aim, McMaster wants to review the United States policy of administration and control in Syria, and especially review the immigration policy and Islamic militancy. An important test for McMaster, however, is the regulation of relations with Russia.

In fact, unlike Michael Flynn, the fired predecessor, McMaster considers Russia as a competitor and not a possible partner. McMaster is considered a superb strategist, and now we just have to wait for his first steps to view if he can influence the program of the President and his collaborators.
