How refreshing is this?
An American President calling a spade a spade – saying ISIS and all Muslim terrorists are “evil losers” and ordering Gen. Mattis and the military to “annihilate ISIS”! I freaking love it!
Now we have an America-First President in Donald Trump who is tired of seeing senseless barbarianism and he’s ready to do something about it.
He already dropped the MOAB in Syria, which should have been a sign to these terrorists that their days are numbered!
Trump’s recent order to Gen. Mattis is to annihilate ISIS because apparently our President is not satisfied with the progress made so far. I love this man!
The new plan is to surround ISIS and kill as many of the evil losers as possible – rather than letting them escape and chasing them down to the next city. Wipe them off the face of the Earth!
Here’s the full report, from Yahoo/AFP:
President Donald Trump has instructed the Pentagon to “annihilate” the Islamic State group in Syria in a bid to prevent escaped foreign fighters from returning home, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Friday.
The move to encircle then kill as many jihadists in place as possible — rather than letting them exit a city and targeting them as they flee — reflects an increased urgency to stop battle-hardened jihadists bringing their military expertise and ideology back to European capitals and other areas.
The president has “directed a tactical shift from shoving ISIS out of safe locations in an attrition fight to surrounding the enemy in their strongholds so we can annihilate ISIS,” Mattis said, using an acronym for IS.
“The intent is to prevent the return home of escaped foreign fighters.”
Trump, who campaigned on a pledge to quickly defeat IS, signed an executive order soon after taking office giving his generals 30 days to come up with a revised plan to wipe the jihadists out.
The review resulted in the new “annihilation campaign” and saw commanders gain greater autonomy to make battlefield decisions.
Critics of Barack Obama’s administration frequently complained of White House micromanagement and a lengthy approval process causing delays on the ground.
Mattis called foreign fighters a “strategic threat” should they return home and said the annihilation effort would prevent the problem from being transplanted from one location to another.
