Staff Sgt. Bobby Henline is a man who suffered devastating burns during his 2007 tour of Iraq. He was north of Baghdad when a roadside bomb blew up his Humvee, and he barely got out with his life. He now does stand-up comedy for his fellow veterans. He also has a compelling message for Donald Trump’s campaign.
“I would definitely advise Mr. Trump,” Sgt. Henline said, giving him his endorsement as well, per DailyMail.com. “A good leader doesn’t have to know everything. Nobody knows everything. That’s why you surround yourself with people who are experts in different areas. That’s what makes a good leader. Someone who can motivate people like that.”
Henline of all people realizes that in regards to the war on terror, we are in the fight for our very lives. America would be at a severe disadvantage if we had Donald Trump’s opponent, Hillary Clinton, who has a proven track record of incompetence. Trump, on the other hand, has qualities Henline can appreciate.
“Trump is aggressive and that is good,” Henline said, as a man who would know something about being tough and aggressive.
When that roadside bomb exploded under his Humvee, it killed his four comrades and left him with 38 percent of his body covered in hideous burns.
The attack immobilized his hand, and he eventually opted to have it removed.
One of the things Henline strongly desires is a leader who will have a strong resolve and will send the Islamic State group militants scurrying away in defeat. He realizes Obama is too politically correct to accomplish the task, and that is probably one of the main reasons why Henline agrees with Trump on another key issue: waterboarding. “In war,” Henline said, “you have to do things you wouldn’t normally do in life.”
The reason for this is simple. Waterboarding saves lives—it was used on one well-known detainee, for example, and in the middle of the night he claimed Allah visited his cell and told him to fully cooperate with his American captors.
Obama’s policies have led to increased instability in Iraq, and the area has now been reclaimed by radical Islamic terrorists. However, Henline does see a solution that neither the current president nor Hillary would espouse.
“We definitely need boots on the ground,” he remarked. “I know they say we kicked out Saddam Hussein then lost control of the country and that’s how ISIS was able to get in. But you’ve got to keep fighting. It takes time to win the hearts and minds.”
The nature of war is a gruesome contest that takes courage, sacrifice, perseverance, and fortitude. If anyone understands it, it would be Sergeant Henline. And he is endorsing Donald Trump to be the next president of the United States.
