LETTERS: Allowing evil to thrive

The liberal media, DemocRATS, Republicans in Name Only (RINOs) and those that hate America across the globe have been having a hissy fit since Donald Trump approved a drone strike that killed Iranian general Qassam Soleimani, the world’s top terrorist.

Those who oppose President Trump should think about what resulted when two U.S. presidents stood idly by and allowed evil to thrive.

FDR’s appeasement at Yalta in February 1945 handed Eastern Europe to a murderous, Communist monster and resulted in the spread of Communism across the world: the Cold War, the Korean War, the nuclear Arms Race, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Vietnam War and never-ending tensions with Communist nations.

Bill Clinton allowing Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda to commit terror attacks with virtual impunity led to 9/11, the killing

and maiming of thousands of Americans, the never-ending war in Afghanistan and trillions of wasted taxpayer dollars.

A few examples of Al Qaeda’s handiwork during Clinton’s term: 1993 – Twin Towers bombing; bodies of U.S. servicemen dragged through the streets of Mogadishu; 1995 – Khobar Towers bombing, where U.S. military personnel were housed; 1998 bombings of U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania; 2000 – USS Cole attacked, etc.

If Clinton had gone after Bin Laden and Al Qaeda the way he did Monica Lewinsky and other females, 9/11 would likely never have occurred.

My question is, what was an enabler of terrorism like Soleimani doing in Baghdad after a U.S. base there had been attacked and while the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad was under assault?
