Over last weekend, Seal Team 6 conducted a raid on Al Queda in Yemen, at Trump’s request. It was planned for several months, and due to Trump’s aggressiveness towards terrorists Seal Team 6 was deployed without help of U.S. allies.
During the mission, three members were injured, and there was an Osprey medical aricraft sent out to retrieve the injured, but somehow malfunctioned and crashed. The team did not know what caused this to happen, but they couldn’t leave the drone so they destroyed it. The wounded troops were airlifted out shortly after. The raid started at night and lasted until dusk.
Trump called the mission a success, eliminating 14 members of the AQAP terrorist group and obtaining information about future plots against America. This came at the cost of four commandos injured, of which one passed from sustained injuries. In addition to this, there are various media reports of civilian casualties; some say the entire village was destroyed, others say several women and children only.
Trump gave a statement to honor the fallen soldiers, to uphold and protect our liberty in pursuit of a safer nation and freer world. This raid is one of the first of many that is part of Trump’s plan to eliminate terrorist groups within 30 days. Do you think his aggressiveness has paid off? Will Trump actually get all of the radical Islamics? Let us know in the comments below.
