What You Need To Know About Trump’s War Against ISIS

The number of civilian deaths in the Middle East at the hands of the United States in the last month is staggering, but what’s even worse is the fact that the U.S. is still funding the same enemies it claims to be fighting… why isn’t anyone talking about this?!

“I would bomb the hell out of ISIS,” Donald Trump promised leading up to Election Day.

Now, Trump is following through on his promise to go after the Islamic State, but there is one major flaw surrounding his mission to defeat “radical islamic terrorism.”

When Trump was on the campaign trail, he called out Obama for destabilizing the region and enabling the rise of ISIS, and he was right…

The Obama administration poured millions of taxpayer dollars into training and arming “moderate Syrian rebels,” and every time their efforts failed, they found a new way to revive the cause under a different name.

But the thing is… those efforts have not ended now that Trump is is office…

With Tulsi Gabbard in the House and Rand Paul in the Senate, the Stop Arming Terrorists Act has been introduced to Congress.

The fact that such common sense legislation has to be created in order to combat the obvious is ridiculous, but it also highlights the hypocrisy that has been a cornerstone of US Foreign Policy for years.

They want you to think an ideological war, that stopping the trigger phrase “radical Islamic terrorism” is worth killing innocent children. But at the end of the day, it all boils down to money, power and the furthering of the military industrial complex.

Several hundred people have been killed in Iraq and Syria, just in the last week, and while you’ll never see their names and faces on the news, there is one thing you should know… every one of those civilians died a the disgusting, endless proxy war fueled by the United States, in which your tax dollars are being used to fund both sides. And that is something everyone should be talking about.
