What to expect from the new head of the Pentagon?
Patrick Shanahan, who had previously served as deputy minister of this department, was appointed Acting Secretary of Defense. This was announced yesterday via Twitter President Donald Trump. Even more unexpected was the news that the new head of the Pentagon will begin to lead him from January 1, 2019, although it was previously announced that his predecessor, General James Matiss, would stay in his chair for another two months.
Patrick Shanahan is a direct nominee of the current head of the White House, both at the new post and at the same place where Trump appointed him back in July 2017. Shanahan is 56 years old, he is a graduate of the Massachusetts University of Technology, an MS in engineering and an MBA. At 24, he began his career at Boeing Corporation, one of the world's largest manufacturers of aviation, space, and military equipment.
In his tweet, Trump highly appreciates the achievements of Shanghai both in the post of the deputy head of the Pentagon and in the post of senior vice president of the Boeing company. At the same time, his work as a curator of military projects, including anti-missile defense systems and military laser systems, was noted. However, according to experts, the decisive factor in appointing Patrick Shanghai is that, unlike Mathiss, he has no discrepancies with the policies of the country's president. Moreover, it is noted that between him, the president and vice president of the United States, Mike Pence formed a trusting relationship.
Predicting how much Shanakhan will be in the position of head of the US military is quite difficult. Saying that this will largely depend on how the situation will develop in Syria. It is easier to assume what steps to expect from him in the new post. The well-known reasons for this are provided by the article by P. Shanakhan in Defense News of December 9 of this year. Here he emphasized the three priorities of the Pentagon: missiles, space and cyberspace.
In particular, they plan to create space forces as a new type of the US Armed Forces and an agency for space development, designed to unite various space systems and technologies.
