3,797…

That’s how many people were killed by former President Barack Obama’s drone strikes during his time in the White House.

During his time as President, Obama greenlit over 2,800 different drone strikes, resulting in the death of 3,797 people.

Now, the majority of that number were evil men looking to do evil things. Terrorists deserve a terrible death…

But we have to say “people” because, of that 3,797 deaths at Obama’s hands, 324 of which were innocent civilians.

Let that sink in.

Now…

When Obama was during his kill-happy days, do you remember conservatives giving him any guff for taking out terrorists?

No…

Of course not.

Conservatives understand that any threat to American lives is a threat to be taken seriously – and quick and decisive action is imperative to ensure that the threat is eliminated.

When Obama killed terrorists, conservatives shrugged their shoulders and said, “good riddance to bad rubbish – the only good terrorist is a DEAD terrorist.”

We may not have liked Obama, but we understood that when he killed a terrorist—ANY terrorist—he was trying to save American lives.

To be honest…

It was probably the thing we liked most about his foreign policy, so, mostly, we never thought about whether what he was doing was right or needed approval from Congress.

The Dawn Of A New Day

However, over the past few years, something has changed…

For some reason, when Trump takes out what many are calling the TOP bad guy in the world, the Left can’t stop giving him crap over it.

In fact…

There are Democrats in Congress saying that his decision to eliminate terrorist General Qasem Soleimani is illegal and is an impeachable offense.

WHAT?

What happened over the past three years that Liberals now believe letting a terrorist roam the world is GOOD thing?

Well, besides the obvious of Trump being president and NOT Obama?

Nothing…

At least Trump has a good reason for taking Soleimani out. The man was pictured at the staging area of the attack on the Baghdad embassy and was traveling around Iraq despite the longstanding travel ban against him.

He shouldn’t have been outside of Iran – and his mere presence in Iraq is enough evidence that he was up to no good.

Do you know what Obama’s reasoning behind his 2800 drone strikes—and the 324 civilian deaths they caused—was?

Listen to it in his own words.

Obama: Like A Kid With A New Toy

“The truth is that this technology really began to take off right at the beginning of my presidency, and it wasn’t until about a year, year and a half in where I began to realize that the Pentagon and our national-security apparatus and the CIA were all getting too comfortable with the technology as a tool to fight terrorism, and not being mindful enough about how that technology is being used and the dangers of a form of warfare that is so detached from what is actually happening on the ground. And so we initiated this big process to try to get it in a box, and checks and balances, and much higher standards about when they’re used.”

Now…

It’s easy to get led down a primrose path here, as he says all the right things—but it’s what he says in the beginning that’s truly disturbing…

“The truth is that this technology really began to take off right at the beginning of my presidency, and it wasn’t until about a year, year and a half in where I began to realize…”

Are you reading between the lines with what he’s saying here?

Basically, for the first year and a half – he was like a kid with a new toy.

He was using this new technology indiscriminately…

And was getting the exact kinds of results he wanted.

So, at least Trump had a verifiable reason to take out Soleimani…

While Obama’s were carried out simply because he COULD—at least in the beginning.

Not that we’re knocking it…

Take out as many as possible! However, the Left needs to realize that America and the lives of its people comes first under Trump.

And that is the RIGHT decision to make…

Every time.
