While members of the Obama administration — with a boost from their vast media allies — railed on President Donald Trump’s decision to withdrawal from the flawed, one-sided nuclear deal with Iran, an Army veteran who has real skin in the game physically saluted the president.

Retired Staff Sgt. Robert Bartlett, who was seriously wounded in Iraq by a roadside bomb manufactured by Iran, personally thanked President Trump, saying the move made for a “great anniversary for me.”

“Thirteen years ago last Thursday we got blown up,” Bartlett said of the 2005 attack that killed his truck commander, Staff Sgt. William Brooks. “I was cut in half, from the left corner of my temple down to my jaw.”

(Bartlett and his wife named their newborn son “after my buddy who was killed next to me.”)

Bartlett, an adviser to United Against Nuclear Iran, was critical of the nuclear deal with Iran that included the Obama administration flying pallets of cash being into the Persian Gulf country, which he said Iran used to spread “more terror.”

He said the money went “right to” their military, pointing to Yemen and other Middle Eastern countries that saw an increase in terrorism.

“Try to spend some money to buy [Iran] off so they don’t build a weapon doesn’t make sense,” Bartlett said. “It’s Chicago politics.”

And while the left is not likely to put much credence in what a wounded vet may think, some social media users appreciate Bartlett’s input.
