Trump’s Overall Bombing Rate

As a declassified United States Air Forces Central Command Combined Air Operations Center report reveals, after the first full year of the Trump Administration, the overall bombing rate has skyrocketed.

Over the course of Bush’s presidency, he averaged 24 bombs dropped per day, 8750 per year.

Over the course of Obama’s presidency, he averaged 34 bombs dropped per day, 12,500 per year.

Over the course of Trump’s first year in office, he averaged 121 bombs dropped per day, for an annual total of 44,096.

That is 5 bombs dropped per hour – every hour of every day.

A bomb is dropped every 12 minutes.

Trump has more than tripled Obama’s outrageously scandalous bombing rate.

In fact, when you break the numbers down, it appears that Trump may have actually quadrupled Obama’s overall bombing rate.

144 Bombs Per Day

Trumps actual bombing total is most likely significantly more than 44,096. After news on the dramatic increase in bombings began to spread in September of 2017, the Trump Administration and the Pentagon became much more secretive over releasing battlefield information.

The officially released bombing numbers dropped dramatically over the last three months of 2017. The number of bombings officially reported during October, November and December fell to a combined total of 4686, which is an average of 51 bombs per day.

The total number of bombings officially reported for the 9 months prior was 39,410, for an average of 144 per day.

Ground Forces Are Unleashed and Firing at a Record-Breaking Clip

In addition to increased bombing campaigns, when it comes to ground forces, Trump has also given military commanders “total authorization” to “fire at will,” leading to a rise in civilian deaths by more than 200% compared with Obama’s last year in office.

For example, let’s look at battlefield operations in the city of Raqqa, Syria’s second largest city, an oil-rich region that is also an oil shipping port along the Euphrates River and their most fertile agricultural land.

In this one city, the Marines fired 38,000 rounds of artillery. The Marine Corps Times called it an “explosive revelation” that shed light on the “immense level of lethal force brought to Raqqa and northern Syria.”

To put this in context, during the entire invasion of Iraq, the Marines fired 34,000 rounds of artillery.

As the Marine Corps Times reported:

“Marines providing artillery support to U.S.-backed Syrian fighters in Raqqa fired so many consecutive rounds they burned out the barrels of two M777 155 mm howitzers.

The story was told directly to Army Sergeant Major John Wayne Troxell, the senior enlisted adviser to chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford, by a Marine Corps battery commander…. ‘whether it was mortars, artillery, rockets, [High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems], Hellfires, armed drones, you name it,’ Troxell told reporters on Monday….

Much of Raqqa has been destroyed by the intense urban street to street battling and the thousands of air and artillery strikes….

The burnout of two M777 howitzers highlights the amount of artillery shells that rained down… ‘I’ve never heard of it ― normally your gun goes back to depot for full reset well before that happens,” a former Army artillery officer told Military Times on condition of anonymity. ‘That’s a shitload of rounds though.’”

Here are several photos of the devastation inflicted upon Syria’s second largest city – 80% of it is now uninhabitable:
