Earlier this month the U.S. made its first and second strike against the ISIS-linked militants in Somalia. Yesterday the State Department has warned that there may be a threat to US personnel and issued an evacuation of all non-essential personnel in the US embassy located in Mogadishu, Somalia.
Trump said that this Airstrike was in retaliation for the terror attack on Tuesday that ISIS claimed it was behind. Trump stated in regards to the Military action against Somalia:
“What we are doing is every time we are attacked from this point forward and it took place yesterday. We are hitting them 10x harder so when we have an animal do an attack like he did the other day on the west side of Manhatten, we are hitting them 10x harder. They claimed him as a soldier good luck. Every time they hit us we know its ISIS we hit them like you folks won’t believe thankyou.”
Somalia has been a hotspot for ISIS and they have been recently recruiting there for their terrorist group.
“A Somali security official says at least six missiles struck in Buqa, a remote mountainous village roughly 60 kilometers (37 miles) north of Qandala town in Somalia’s northern state of Puntland. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.”
Finally, we have a Commander and Chief who is not afraid to stand up for America and strike down those that would commit evil acts against American Citizens. Obama would have twiddled his thumbs and worked for a multilateral solution that would have never come. People can say what they want about Trump but they can’t say he doesn’t stand for Justice and the American people.
