What a terrible day that was September 11, 2001 which I remember exactly what I was doing (can’t talk about it) as well I am sure you patriots remember as well, how the hell can anyone forget, I would compare it to the assassination of President John Kennedy in it’s tragicness of somber state. The whole country got behind President George W. Bush in sentiment and wanting to do something about it such as kick ass! Bush and the military put together a plan that made sense considering Bin Laden was using the country that we were about to attack as a safe haven and that country was Afghanistan and that’s where the first mistake was made whereas our invasion was a complete success except for the fact if Bush would have continued the campaign in Afghanistan to it’s fullest conclusion we would not have been talking about Afghanistan today where another United States President as in Donald Trump had to be in the White House today to explain to We The People as to his objective to end the war but what happened was that Bush took is eye off finishing the victory march into Afghanistan and decided to invade Iraq. That was the time to go for the kill considering the United States had the support of the whole world behind us as to the way we were attacked. Don’t get me wrong, when we entered the war against Iraq I gave it my fullest support which I always would but yet in the back of my mind I knew we had not finished the war in Afghanistan.
Then along came mankind’s gift to the world Obama. He gave us an intellectual assessment in modern warfare straight out of Harvard University, get a load of this now, do you remember him telling We The People Iraq was the dumb war and Afghanistan was the good war. Sounds like grade school! Naturally Obama had campaigned against the war in Iraq so in his simple mind he could not support it even though by the fool backing out of Iraq he allowed ISIS to flourish. The following was published by CNS news: “(CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama, as an Illinois state senator in 2002, said that using military force to topple a murderous dictator amounted to a “dumb war” and should be opposed.” The following was published by Breitbart: ““As President, I will make the fight against al Qaeda and the Taliban the top priority that it should be. This is a war that we have to win,” Obama vowed in a major 2008 campaign speech on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Obama also vowed to turn the “good war” in Afghanistan around and pull out all U.S. service members.
So in Obama’s simple liberal intellect mind one war was good and the other one was dumb even though The United States has been under attack and to let up our efforts in either war guess what happens, we have what we have today President Trump going on national television having to explain to We The People the game plan for Afghanistan.
The following was posted by Brooke Singman, published by Fox News Politics: “President Trump outlined a comprehensive new strategy Monday night for achieving a “lasting peace” in Afghanistan – rejecting what he called “arbitrary timetables” for the U.S. troop presence, ratcheting up pressure on Pakistan to stop harboring militants and vowing to refocus the mission on “killing terrorists,” not nation-building.”
“From now on, victory will have a clear definition: attacking our enemies, obliterating ISIS, crushing Al Qaeda, preventing the Taliban from taking over Afghanistan, and stopping mass terror attacks against America,” Trump said, in a primetime address to the nation.”
“The speech made clear he is keeping U.S. troops in the country – he said they will “fight to win” – and scrapping any consideration of a hasty withdrawal.”
How will this differ from the failures of Obama? I would say one obvious way and that is Trump has a trust in his military people who get paid to do just that and that is win wars. If you recall Obama went through three Defense Secretaries, and countless generals which means it was Obama’s way or the highway. Trump is a student of history and he knows enough that if you have the right people, take in the information they give you, digest the information and come to a conclusion of victory not appeasement to your political base, winning wars are done by sound strategy and fast conclusions once the information has been digested and you recall once Obama got the information it took forever for him to make the decision, the gutless, yellow-belly, spineless wimp that he was. President Trump has now put forward the plan and the execution of the plan begins. This goes against every fiber in Trump’s body to continue a war he never wanted to be in the first place but like we all know you don’t pull out of the war without a victory because the enemy will always smell defeat and one thing is for sure the United States with President Trump at the helm will never be defeated.
