Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, December 01, 2021

President Biden has almost totally halted drone strikes, and airstrikes in general, around the world. It's a remarkable foreign policy reform, but also a remarkable failure of both government communication and media coverage. A hugely significant change in foreign policy has happened " and almost nobody is paying attention. Where Trump oversaw more than 1,600 air and artillery strikes in Iraq and Syria during his first 11 months in office, Airwars reports just four during Biden's term so far. Strikes in Somalia fell from roughly 75 last year to fewer than 10 this year, with no civilian casualties. And in Yemen, the annual total dropped from about 18 to maybe four, with fewer than 10 casualties of any kind. (Precise figures are unclear because some strikes are classified.)

Save a few of those drones. We may need to put them to use for the next GQP insurrection.

"President Biden has almost totally halted drone strikes"

Tell us you want to be a one term President without saying you want to be a one term President.

#10 - that was handled a while back. What a pointless thing to raise, and so dishonestly framed.

------- sock-puppets.

"Are we just supposed to ignore the family he murdered after the Kabul bombing and then lied about it?"

You got a "say their names" thing you want to do for us?
