Trump: Afghanistan bombing was "another successful event"
« on: April 13, 2017, 12:33:18 PM »
No more playing games.   :thumbsup:

Trump said the US' dropping of the largest non-nuclear bomb in Afghanistan was "another successful job."

"We're very, very proud of our military," Trump said. "It was another successful event."

The White House says the bombing targeted ISIS tunnels and caves. The extent of the damage is unclear as of now.

How many times would have Obama said "I" if he was POTUS and asked this question? Trump gave all the credit to the military and would not even declare if he was involved in the decision. How refreshing.

Good observation!   No wonder why the military LOVES Trump!  First he's taking the hand-cuffs off, then he gives credit where it's due.

...and wifey and I got so pissed when Obama said he took out Osamma-bin-ladden... MEH! 
All the credit for himself, and then exposed the seal team for terrorist revenge.

Worse, he exposed the guy who REALLY got OBL, the doctor who identified him and clued the US to the compound OBL was hiding in. That was unbelievable, we out confidential informants and wonder why no one trusts us.

Exactly.  Taking the handcuffs off. It's about time!

...hmmm.... thinking about the Liberals like to phrase things, "If we can save just ONE ... blah, blah... it makes the cost worth it."

Ya know, "If we can kill just ONE jihadist it's worth it... It's for the children!"   Our guys got 35 of them.

Obama, killing ONE terrorist at a time .... sometimes.

Trump's military, killing dozens at a time, well... if you can identify the remains - was there pigs blood involved in the making of that jihadist slayer?

Obama would say, "Let me be perfectly clear", and do nothing of substance.

Trump whispers to our Military, "Pssst, when it absolutely, positively has to be destroyed overnight - I'm sending you guys!"


Refreshingly simple, we have the power to do good, and finally we have a POTUS who's not afraid to use it effectively.

This Tweet by this vet who lost his legs states it best......

I lost my legs because my gov't was afraid to use the tools they had and saw me as expendable. I wish I'd had this admin.
