Thanks to President Obama, America faced one of its worst enemies in its 400-year history.
Al-Queda had been contained to their caves in Afghanistan and Iraq had finally become a victory during George W. Bush’s surge.
North Korea continued its saber-rattling while China and Russia remained nuclear superpowers to contend with.
But America’s worst enemy was one of its own making: ISIS.
This terrorist network formed after Obama pulled troops out of Iraq. Since then, these enemies have menaced the entire world.
During the campaign, Donald Trump promised to wipe ISIS off the map. He said little of his plans, but made it clear: ISIS’s days were numbered. It has been less than a year since Trump became President.
But big things are happening in the Middle East.
Thanks to his leadership, ISIS’s threat is becoming a thing of the past.
From Fox News:
At its peak, ISIS held land in Iraq and Syria that equaled the size of West Virginia, ruled over as many as 8 million people, controlled oilfields and refineries, agriculture, smuggling routes and vast arsenals. It ran a brutal, oppressive government, even printing its own currency.
The terror organization now controls just 3 percent of Iraq and less than 5 percent of Syria. Its self-styled “caliph,” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is believed to be injured and holed up somewhere along the lawless border of Syria and Iraq…
But the military’s job — to take back the land ISIS claimed as its caliphate and liberate cities like Mosul, in Iraq, and Raqqa, in Syria, as well as countless smaller cities and villages, is largely done. And it has taken less than a year.
“The leadership team that is in place right now has certainly enabled us to succeed,” Brig. Gen. Andrew Croft, the ranking U.S. Air Force officer in Iraq, told Fox News. “I couldn’t ask for a better leadership team to work for, to enable the military to do what it does best.”
President Trump gave a free hand to Mattis, who in May stressed military commanders were no longer being slowed by Washington “decision cycles,” or by the White House micromanaging that existed President Obama. As a result of the new approach, the fall of ISIS in Iraq came even more swiftly than hardened U.S. military leaders expected.
The Obama administration didn’t know the first thing about military. Not a huge surprise, when you elect liberals to office. His terrible leadership meant certain doom for U.S. troops. And certain victory for our enemies.
Under Trump, our Armed Forces are free to do their job. They are not crippled by Washington. Generals are allowed to make the right decisions. And that has led to massive victories in Iraq and Syria.
The difference is night and day. We have a real leader in the White House. Someone who actually wants to defeat our enemies. And he’s directing our military to do so.
ISIS’s days of wreaking havoc around the world are over. Trump made good on his promise.
Are you getting tired of winning yet? Didn’t think so.
