There is now more hard public evidence to show how President Trump and General Mattis’ fight with ISIS has been going.
In football terms, the United States is ahead 99-0 at the end of the 1st quarter.
ISIS has lost 98% of the territory it once held and half of the caliphate has been captured in 2017 alone, according to reports from the front.
Lt. General David Deptula delivered a scathing line to Fox News comparing Trump and Obama as Commanders-in-Chief:
The massive gains come after years of “onerous” rules, when critics say the Obama administration “micromanaged” the war and shunned a more intensive air strategy that could have ended the conflict much sooner.
“The rules of engagement under the Obama administration were onerous. I mean what are we doing having individual target determination being conducted in the White House, which in some cases adds weeks and weeks,” said retired Air Force Lt. Gen. David Deptula, the former head of U.S. Air Force intelligence.
“The limitations that were put on actually resulted in greater civilian casualties.”
And now, we see why Mattis is sometimes compared to Patton. If “Old Blood and Guts” were around today, he would ask how many casualties we suffered while Obama poured over individual-target lists on his coffee break at the White House.
With Trump and Mattis at the helm, the USA is pushing for victory and a quick end to wars.
