Shattuck: Trumpís leadership, military support enabled U.S. to eradicate Islamic State
The Boston Herald ^ | 12/10/2017 | Tom Shattuck

Posted on 12/10/2017 9:45:48 AM PST by calvincaspian

If you’re ISIS in Iraq, this has not been a good year. President Trump has delivered on his promise to “Bomb the (expletive)” out of you and his generals have been given the green light to hunt every last one of you down and kill you.

Mission accomplished.

In an address yesterday, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi formally announced that the more than three-year fight against the barbaric terror group is over after the country’s security forces drove the extremists from all of the territory they once held.

ISIS in Iraq is defeated.

Say what you will about this president, but his leadership on the ISIS front has been magnificent. The world’s most dastardly terrorist group has been largely destroyed under Trump’s leadership — and that’s no small feat.

President Trump is a street-talkin’ New Yorker. It’s not always “presidential” but crude straight-talk, coupled with a vicious military onslaught, has eviscerated ISIS in Iraq and liberated millions of citizens from their horrible grasp.

ISIS is terrified of Trump and Iraqis love him.

They’re not too concerned with his whacky tweets over there. Trump has saved their lives. That’s more than can be said for his “presidential” predecessor.

We could have destroyed isis under obama but he wanted to arm and fund them instead. Obama helped create isis and he allowed them to take over in Iraq and steal millions of dollars worth of American military hardware.

I, for one, get tired of the constant “damning with faint praise” that PawPaw Trump is subjected to. Maybe after another year or two of steamrolling of our enemies foreign and domestic he will be given undiluted credit. They talk, he DOES. We haven’t had someone like this as a leader for a long time. His tireless nose-bloddying of the jerks in Washington is done on our behalf. Looking back my lingering plaint against GWB was his silence in the face of evil opposition. It amounted to a kind of dereliction of duty.

“Turn the other cheek” was never said to the authorities of the world, whose job is to RESTRAIN EVIL. Trump is doing that, people. Enjoy it while you can.

I think that is the wrong proposition.
The dude was a GHAZI, using American might to expand islam, globally using the full might of America.
He did what he could to enable islam , while simultaneously diminishing America thereby destroying America from within. Not only was he a cultural alien, but a bitter black, muslim marxist.

President Trump is the polar opposite acting to make the West Great again.
America is the hub of Christian Western European man and his descendants.

Obama sought to take out the hub.
He was the death to America crowd’s poster boy.
Operating right under our very noses.

Presidet Trump is proud of our heritage and wants to reverse the damage to MAGA

++++
Not that I’m aware of. But I can write the script for Obama’s response:

“The President, by choosing to keep in place the policies and strategies that I put in place when I was President, has predictably ...”

The Obama ISIS 9-Year Plan I guess.

We are very, very lucky to have survived 8 years of this guy. And I remain simply amazed that the same people, Americans, could elect someone like Obama and 8 years later have the wisdom to elect a Donald Trump. Simply amazed.

If I may, I’ll say the voters who elected Trump, and those who elected Obola, are pretty much entirely different folks. The masses who elected Trump are ones who held their noses and voted McCain and then Romney, plus the ones who stayed home in ‘08 and 2012, plus some number who saw their blunder and repented of voting for the first......

This commentary is well worth the read for it’s take on Trump, and it’s revealed take on Obama. The part about Obama finally frames him as we have seen him all along.

About time!

“Dallied” is way too kind. What he did was facilitate their barbaric attacks on innocent people, and he should be tried and hanged for doing so.

And let no one ever forget that it was the DEMOCRATS who foisted upon America that cultural alien and bitter, half-black, Muslim Marxist. Democrats, most of whom are still doing everything they can to harm America. SPIT.

You beat me to it with this observation. Fact is, the morons who voted for the Kenyan Fraud are the same ones who voted for Hillary. And the frightening thing is that this army of American haters, ceaselessly indoctrinated by the education systems, the entertainment media, and the news media, IS GROWING EVERYDAY!
