Obama's Iraq/Isis Legacy: Tens of Thousands of Innocent Civilians Brutally Murdered. Trump Fixed the Problem in Less than One Year

Obama lacked both resolve and insight. Trump did not!

A sad story at the Daily Mail about the horror inflicted by ISIS on the people of Mosul, Iraq's second largest city which once boasted a population over 600,000. The story describes how the morgue was filled to overflowing with Iraqis murdered by ISIS and shows the near total destruction of many parts of that city:

Obama's legacy: Much of Iraq in ruins with tens of thousands of civilians murdered.
The blood lust of ISIS did not stop with the initial mass executions of Iraqis when ISIS seized the city in 2014. It continued until ISIS was forced to withdraw. The evil of ISIS fighters knew no bounds. They crucified children, enslaved women and beheaded men and boys without ceasing. That is when they weren't busy tossing people in acid baths, drowning them or setting them on fire.

The evil of ISIS could have been avoided if Obama had listened to military and civilian leaders. At the same time this outrage was taking place Obama claimed "The world is less violent than it has ever been."
History will remember how Obama ignored the threat of ISIS, calling it a "JV team" even as the terror took hold.  Former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta was among those warning Obama that a complete pull out from Iraq would lead to disaster. Obama ignored him.  And the strategy he put in place to deal with the problem had "not a snowball's chance in hell of succeeding" according to one General.

Obama's strategy involved dropping leaflets to warn of coming air strikes. ISIS took full advantage of Obama's weakness. At the same time, Michelle Obama waged a Twitter campaign to #bringbackourgirls taken by terrorists in Nigeria. Another empty gesture which had no effect. Obama's feckless, uncaring incompetence meant the loss of tens of thousands of innocent civilians who were murdered by ISIS.

One General describes the Obama problem this way:
“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.”
Trump Fixes Obama's Mess. ISIS Loses 98% of Territory Gained Under Obama!

It took Trump less than a year to fix the problem caused by Obama.  He took the handcuffs off the U.S. military and along with better relationships with the Iraqis and other partners in the region ISIS has lost the caliphate it created under Obama. The Iraqis, Kurds, Syrians, Yazidis and others can now bury their dead in peace with no fear that ISIS will return.  At last we have a President in the White House who cares enough for innocent civilians to get the job done!
