Donald Trump campaigned on cleaning up that mess by utterly destroying the Islamic terrorist organization.
Now a top Trump official just delivered ISIS their death sentence.
During the campaign, Trump promised to deliver a plan that would eliminate the threat of ISIS.
The terrorist group was repeatedly underestimated during Obama’s years in office.
He once even referred to them as a “JV” team.
But as the murderous Islamists carried out global terrorist attacks, the American people demanded a plan of action.
Trump pledged a course correction.
And he delivered in a big way.
Secretary of Defense James “Mad Dog” Mattis announced Trump’s latest order would “annihilate” ISIS.
“First, James Mattis said, Trump has authorized him to delegate more decision-making authority down to U.S. commanders who are on the ground with Iraqi and Syrian partners fighting ISIS, to speed up the program.
“No longer will we have slowed decision cycles because Washington D.C. has to authorize tactical movements on the ground. I have absolute confidence as does the president, our commander in chief, in the commanders on the ground,” Mattis said.
Secondly, he said that Trump has also approved a tactical shift from pushing ISIS fighters out from a stronghold to enabling local partners to completely encircle them and move in, referring to it as an “annihilation” campaign.
“The intent is to prevent the return home of escaped foreign fighters,” he said.”
Mattis announced that the “annihilation campaign” was designed to prevent ISIS fighters from returning home where they become worldwide dangers to commit acts of terrorism.
Breitbart also reports:
“The intent is to prevent the return home of escaped foreign fighters,” he said.
Mattis emphasized that there has been no change to the rules of engagement concerning the use of force or in avoiding civilian casualties. However, he acknowledged the tactical shift also meant needing to go into populated areas to fight ISIS and ISIS refusing to let civilians leave and perhaps using them as human shields.
But he also said the strategy would prevent ISIS foreign fighters from returning home and carrying out attacks on the U.S. and its allies.
“The foreign fighters are the strategic threat should they return home to Tunis, to Kuala Lumpur, to Paris, to Detroit, wherever. Those foreign fighters are a threat. So by taking the time to deconflict, to surround and then attack, we carry out the annihilation campaign so we don’t simply transplant this problem from one location to another.”
After eight years of Obama’s failed foreign policy where ISIS flexed their muscles with repeated attacks across the globe, Trump taking the fight to the enemy is a welcome change.
For too damned long politicians have started wars then sat back and tried to play soldier with other peoples lives. They have made idiotic decisions typical of someone never in combat. When we go to war it is because all “political” resolutions have failed. Why do the people who have already failed think they should be in charge? The military fights the wars we should take off the “handcuffs” and let them do what they are trained and best suited to do.
Our military has been fighting wars with their hands tied behind their backs for too long. As mentioned, too many so-called leaders have attempted to be a Napoleon deploying and utilizing our troops’ lives as if they were G.I. Joes.
It’s time our troops were given a free hand to battle these murderous parasites while the amateurs, with no military know-how, leave the strategy and tactics to the expertise of our military leadership.
Fight to win, not weighed down by political expediency on the battlefield.
Wasn’t the destruction of the World Trade Center enough of a warning to what Islam is all about? The whole country came together as one against these rabid animals. But I guess the snowflake liberals attention span dosent last long. Wake up people, Islam is not a religion, it’s a Satanic cult based on suppression and barbaric treatment of it’s women, and calls it’s people to kill all unbelievers wherever their found. Does that sound Peaceful to you? Spend a few dollars and buy the Quran, and read what it teaches, it is sickening to read what Muslims are instructed to do. If you care at all for your family especially your young children you better start doing something about it NOW. Muslims are infiltrating our country with one intention, convert the USA from Christianity to Islam. We’ll be fighting in the streets before that happens!!!
