The U.S military is one of the most powerful in the world. They help protect us and our freedom. But when a raid goes wrong in Yemen, and a soldier is killed, that soldier’s father, Bill Owens, refuses to meet President Trump for a ceremony. He said, “Why at this time did there have to be this stupid mission when it wasn’t even barely a week into his administration?”

I think that the father has the right to not see Mr. Trump. Before Trump went into office, every operation in Yemen had no boots on the ground. Everything was done with drones and missiles. Now, as Owens pointed out, Trump hasn’t been in the office long and still ordered the attack.

Not one target was worth an American life in Yemen. Owens wants an investigation for how his son died and why the attack was launched. He also wondered why the President approved the raid. The White House says that the attack was planned under the Obama administration, but Obama’s aides didn’t give the go-ahead because it was an escalation of U.S involvement in the Arab country.

I don’t think Trump should’ve launched the attack. No amount of information is worth any human life. Even if the Obama administration planned the attack, they didn’t launch it because of reasons that haven’t changed just because the office changed. The decision of the father not to meet the president is perfectly just and allowed. He wanted a private ceremony, and I’m sure the president was the last person he wanted to see.
