Did you ever notice that anytime America leads, shows strength, or begins to look out for itself, the Left develops, well severe butthurt? Pirates Cove notices
Washington Post writers Jenna Johnson and Gregg Jaffe pen a thinly veiled opinion piece in an almost Voxsplaining manner, meant to slam President Trump for approving and cheerleading the use of U.S. military power, while stating that Mr. Obama was completely different
Amid the often jarring inconsistency of President Trump’s foreign policy, one thing has always been crystal clear: He loves a big show of American military force.
“You gotta knock the hell out of them — Boom! Boom! Boom!” Trump said of Islamic State terrorists at a January 2016 rally in Iowa, punctuating each “boom” with a punch of his fist.
That same impulse has been apparent over the past 10 days as Trump pummeled a Syrian air base with cruise missiles, threatened military action against North Korea over its nuclear weapons program and praised the U.S. military’s first-ever use of a massive 11-ton bomb, nicknamed the “mother of all bombs,” to kill Islamic State militants in Afghanistan.
“So incredible. It’s brilliant. It’s genius,” Trump said Tuesday of the missile strike in Syria. “Our technology, our equipment is better than anybody by a factor of five.”
As he searches for a coherent foreign policy during his first months in office, Trump has celebrated but often inflated the effect of military actions. The massive shows of strength, at times, have seemed to be a strategy unto themselves.
Maybe these two need an extra dose of that cream pictured?
