During his time in the White House, Barack Hussein Obama allowed terrorists to walk all over us, as they knew that he was too weak to retaliate against them at all. Now that President Donald Trump is in office, however, he’s letting terrorists know that their party is over in a huge way.
Freedom Daily News reported that U.S. forces celebrated Thanksgiving this past week by teaming up with Afghan forces to launch a series of attacks on narcotics laboratories in southern Afghanistan. The initial strikes started on Sunday and lasted for most of the week, and experts think this could be the start of a very long and expanded air war in the area under President Trump.
Army Gen. John W. Nicholson Jr., the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, said that this is the first significant use of new legal authorities granted by the Trump administration in August that enable the Pentagon to target Taliban revenue streams.
“This is going to be steady pressure that is going to stay up,” he told reporters from his headquarters in Kabul. “We’re not going to let up.”
The U.S. military had previously only conducted strikes when facing an imminent threat or working directly with the Afghans. This did not work, however, the Muslim Terrorists know very well how to exploit the weaknesses the US makes for its self by bowing down to pressure from politically correct liberal snowflakes. Luckily for us, Trump sees through this nonsense and is ready to do whatever it takes to take out terrorists.
This comes after it was revealed that the Taliban takes in about $200 million yearly from poppy cultivation and opium production.
“It is high time for the international community and Afghanistan to reprioritize drug control,” said Yury Fedotov, executive director of the U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime.
Nicholson also spoke out to push back on concerns about the Taliban’s gaining influence. He explained that the areas where the insurgents gained control were in rural regions, and that the advances occurred before Trump granted the new war authorities in August.
“We didn’t see the enemy attempt to take cities like they did,” Nicholson said. “They did go after some district centers, but when they did they undertook heavy casualties. … These new authorities give me the ability to go after the enemy in ways that I really couldn’t before, and it’s freed us up now to use airpower the most effective way going forward.”
