The president was apparently displeased recently while watching a U.S. drone attack on an enemy of the state, expressing a deep disappointment that the military waited until after the enemy had left his family’s home before delivering the attack. That’s right. The president would have preferred if the United States military had taken out an entire family of children and elders because one of their relatives had made themselves an enemy of the country.
According to Washington Post:
“Trump has made winning on the battlefields of Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan a central tenet of his foreign policy and tough-guy identity. But Trump and the military hold frequently opposing ideas about exactly what winning means.”
Senior administration officials told the press that there are constant discussions with Trump about places all over the country in which American troops are deployed. Those officials also claim that the talks regularly become heated because Trump’s ideas are harsh and often times ridiculous.
The publication continued:
“Trump’s words, both in public and private, describe a view that wars should be brutal and swift, waged with overwhelming firepower and, in some cases, with little regard for civilian casualties. Victory over America’s enemies for the president is often a matter of bombing “the s— out of them,” as he said on the campaign trail.”
Trump is more than a little obsessed with showing the entire world how big his missiles are, and is almost itching for a conflict to start so he can take out the aggression that leads him to do things like push for the execution of people exonerated by evidence for a crime they were wrongly imprisoned for. The man has no conscience.
Trump recently visited the drone operations floor of the CIA, where he was shown surveillance footage from Syria in which a target was located and taken out via drone strike. Trump reportedly demanded during the meeting that drones be armed, saying:
“If you can do it in 10 days, get it done.”
WaPo reported Trump’s tantrum after getting an answer to his demand:
“When the agency’s head of drone operations explained that the CIA had developed special munitions to limit civilian casualties, the president seemed unimpressed. Watching a previously recorded strike in which the agency held off on firing until the target had wandered away from a house with his family inside, Trump asked, “Why did you wait?” one participant in the meeting recalled.”
Trump has said before that he believes family members of U.S. enemies should also be executed just for having the misfortune of being related to a criminal. Just this week Trump said, “We’ve had tremendous military success against ISIS. It’s close to 100 percent.” This after ordering even more bombings in Iraq and Syria.
