Former President Barack Obama liked to act tough on terrorism, but the reality was that he didn’t care about ending it at all.
Under Obama, the world became familiar with ISIS, the leading terrorist group that continues to terrorize the planet.
In fact, the 2017 “Global Peace Index” has revealed that Obama was so bad at combating terrorism that it nearly tripled under his leadership.
Conservative Tribune reports:
Since 2011, or over only six years, terrorism around the world has nearly tripled, resulting in a current all-time high for terrorism and a costly bill for those fighting it, the report found, according to the Voice of America.
The report determined that world peace has been declining for the past decade, citing terrorism and conflicts in the Middle East and Northern Africa as the primary driving factors.
In fact, terrorism-related deaths had risen more than 900 percent since 2007 in the 35 countries that participate in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development — a forum for governments to work together to solve common problems, including safety from terrorism.
Twenty-three of the organization’s member countries had experienced deaths due to terrorism over the past year, including Denmark, Sweden, France and Turkey.
Across the globe, deaths from terrorism increased by 80 percent from last year, and the intensity of terrorism also increased.
Is anyone surprised by this? Obama was terrible at combating terrorism.
In 2016, 11 countries lost more than 500 people to terrorism, as compared to 2015, when only five nations faced that kind of death toll.
In the Middle East, terrorist activity was at a 25-year high.
Obama also decided to withdraw troops from Iraq, allowing ISIS to gain ground in the country.
Thank God we have President Donald Trump in office now as he is committed to combating terrorism.
