Hillary Clinton, in one sense, is a great politician. She chooses subject that she can speak to with vague language that will give her an out one way or another. In fact, when she campaigned for the Presidency, she said her plan for taking out ISIS would include taking out their strongholds in Iraq, dismantling the global terror network, and hardening our defenses at home to prevent attacks.
Sounds good, right?
Meanwhile, Donald Trump was a lot more forthright. He said “We’ll bomb the hell out of ISIS.”
When you look at both of those on the surface, Hillary’s seems to have more strategy. But then you realize her mouth was moving, so she must be lying. But Trump wasn’t just speaking off the cuff. Millions of Americans lined up behind him because they trusted him to do exactly that.
And true to his word, 94 ISIS soldiers will no longer be raping women or killing children for fun. President Trump unleashed the MOAB on ISIS.
President Trump on Thursday hailed the military’s “very, very successful” strike on ISIS fighters in Afghanistan, after the first-ever deployment of America’s largest non-nuclear bomb — known as the MOAB.
The Pentagon announced that the GBU-43B, a 21,000-pound bomb, was dropped on an ISIS tunnel complex in Nangarhar Province. The MOAB — Massive Ordnance Air Blast — is also known as the “Mother Of All Bombs.” It was first tested in 2003, but hadn’t been used in combat until Thursday.
“We have given [the military] total authorization,” Trump said ahead of a meeting with first responders. “Frankly, that’s why they’ve been so successful lately.”
“We have incredible leaders in the military, we have an incredible military and we’re very proud of them, and this was another very, very successful mission,” he said.
A lot of Americans should be proud of this act, in which President Trump allowed the Generals to take the kids gloves off and handle our enemies. Donald Trump Jr certainly was. He tweeted:
This just goes to show Donald Trump’s thought process in approaching the war in the Middle East. When President Obama was in office, he was aiming not to lose. President Trump is aiming to win. There’s a big mental shift with each point of view, with vastly different results.
It’s going to make Americans safer in the long run. If ISIS was recruiting young men to its ranks by promising them glory by striking the Great Satan (USA), they might think twice when they’re getting bombed to kingdom come in their own backyards. There is no glory in that. The ranks will dwindle and ISIS will become less attractive as will other terrorist groups who know President Trump is going to hunt them down.
President Bush did the same thing when he cowboy’d up, stormed Afghanistan, and put an open-bounty on terrorists, killing them dead or alive.
