In response to online argument, he further amplified his point: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.— Johnny (Joey) Jones (@Johnny_Joey) April 13, 2017
Either go in to WIN, or don't go in.We begged to use bombs on the minefield ghost town I lost my legs clearing. But by all means-continue your rhetorically righteous tweeting. https://t.co/OoyoxZzZtV— Johnny (Joey) Jones (@Johnny_Joey) April 13, 2017
I think Bush actually cared about the troops, but got sucked in to that "We must use minimal force so as not to alienate people" bullshit. Obama? Didn't and doesn't give a shit about the troops; to him and his kind they're just pawns on a board, and all of them expendable. We'll see if the change in attitude dropping the MOAB signals continues.
Watch this Trump statement carefully:
He doesn’t say he authorized the use of the bomb itself. He says he authorizes the military. This is a key, wise, statement — one that hopefully empowers the military to act from a proper position of legal, moral, and political strength. Obama was notorious for not only implementing strict rules of engagement but for vacuuming an enormous amount of military decision-making authority straight to the White House. It’s hard to think of a more disempowering practice. It’s hard to think of a practice better calculated to lead to timidity in the field. Trump seems to be bringing a change, and it’s a change that’s long overdue.JUST IN: Trump says he’s “proud” of “very successful job” the military did with the use of ‘The Mother of All Bombs’ https://t.co/G3qGtUdiu8 pic.twitter.com/DheqU0SsRl— CNBC Now (@CNBCnow) April 13, 2017
