Under the Trump Administration, US Airstrikes Are Killing More Civilians

Steven Feldstein

Unfortunately, the increased trend of civilian casualties is unlikely to diminish.

These civilians are being killed by bombs dropped by the USA?

The same USA that believes all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness?

That USA?

This is one of those subtly cloaked articles intended to make us think Obama was some kind of humanitarian.

“The Obama administration carefully crafted a deliberate set of rules guiding the use of force.”

Right. So he only killed 3400 innocent civilian men, women, and children (a figure which is laughably distorted anyway and probably low by tens of thousands). What a guy! I kinda doubt this author ever wrote an article complaining about the number of civilians Obama was killing on a daily basis. Another delusional Obamkin doing what they do best, pretending the lesser of two evils is somehow an acceptable alternative. I can’t wait to see which war-mongering democrat this guy will support in 2020. “Our candidate promises to slaughter fewer people than their candidate. Vote Democratic! The party of fewer senseless murders!”

Just a reminder that Trump is not the first monster, just a worse monster than the one we had before.

The “peace candidate” of 2016 for some progressives here at CD.

Precisely.

Trump is vile, but the road to Trump was paved by Obama.

Every one of Trump’s abuses is, if you analyze it, an amplification of something Obama either willingly allowed or robustly pursued:

Without Obamacare, Trump would have no ‘subsidies’ to cut off.

If Obama hadn’t enthusiastically made war against Muslims or declared their nations as ‘terrorist,’ Trump would have had no precedent for his Muslim Ban.

If Obama hadn’t expanded the Afghan War, if he had instead brought our troops home, Trump would have looked pretty silly dropping the most powerful conventional bomb ever on that nation.

Etc.

One and the same, I’m afraid.
