Joe Biden Just Secretly Sent Americans Back to War in Africa, Reversing Trump Order
President Trump was the first president to not start a new war in who knows how long while he was in office.
This is a remarkable achievement. In fact, he was able to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un while he was in office, something that Barack Obama was never able to do, and that Joe Biden refuses to do. You can’t make peace with your enemies if you’re afraid to talk to them.
At any given time, we as a nation are immersed in a number of wars. As it stands right now, we are still at war in Yemen, Syria, and believe it or not, Somalia.
Prior to President Trump leaving office, he pulled soldiers out of Somalia. But now that Joe Biden is in charge (supposedly) he reversed the pull-out and sent us back into the country to fight against radical Islamic extremists.
For those of you who may not quite remember the conflict in Somalia, that’s the war that we’ve been in since the early 1990s under George H.W. Bush and is the war that was going on in the movie “Black Hawk Down”.
According to the New York Times,
In addition, Mr. Biden has approved a Pentagon request for standing authority to target about a dozen suspected leaders of Al Shabab, the Somali terrorist group that is affiliated with Al Qaeda, three of the officials said. Since Mr. Biden took office, airstrikes have largely been limited to those meant to defend partner forces facing an immediate threat.
…Mr. Biden signed off on the proposal by Defense Secretary Lloyd J. Austin III in early May, officials said. In a statement, Adrienne Watson, the National Security Council spokeswoman, acknowledged the move, saying it would enable “a more effective fight against Al Shabab.”
“The decision to reintroduce a persistent presence was made to maximize the safety and effectiveness of our forces and enable them to provide more efficient support to our partners,” she said.
