While Obama was in office, ISIS Muslims declared they would fight to the death, no matter how dire the situation. And they did.
Time have changed, and Trump is the President now. Now, ISIS fighters are surrendering by the thousands as the US-back forces in Iraq conquered ISIS’ final stronghold in Raqqa.
With this defeat, anyone could see the cause of the once-boastful Islamist army was a lost cause. The Iraqi forces knew it, US forces knew it, and finally, ISIS fighters realized it. The end was nigh.
Once with a stated goal of establishing a global Islamic Caliphate, the keystone in their drive toward bringing about the Apocalypse and a “holy” battle as predicted by the Qu’ran.
From the looks of things, God is not on their side.
After a heated battle, ISIS was finally pushed out of Mosul, and now their defacto capitol has fallen.
In the span of nine months, ISIS has gone back to being the “JV team.”
The Islamic State, a day after being ousted from its defacto capital of Raqqa, is losing its foothold in the two nations where it established its bloody roots and grew from former President Barack Obama’s infamous “JV team” into an unrelenting exporter of global terror.
Once the owner — or captor — of a swath of land in Syria and Iraq, the militant group has lost control of its two key cities — and at least half of the original territory it once brazenly roamed.
ISIS is reportedly “regrouping and recruiting” in other chaos-torn nations as its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, resurfaces in cryptic audio messages, urging “soldiers of Islam and caliphate supporters” to remain focused on their victory.
ISIS was dealt a massive blow Tuesday when most of Raqqa was liberated from the militant fighters’ hold by U.S.-backed Syrian troops. A U.S. military spokesperson told Fox News the city, once considered the capital of the terrorists’ so-called caliphate, has been 90 percent recaptured, with fighting remaining only in a few select pockets where hardline militants have holed up.
It’s unclear how — or if — Baghdadi plans to maintain or recapture ISIS’ lost territory in Syria and Iraq.
Rightfully so, President Trump took the credit for ISIS’ demise.
“I totally changed rules of engagement. I totally changed our military, I totally changed the attitudes of the military and they’ve done a fantastic job,” Trump said on “The Chris Plante Show.”
“ISIS is now giving up, they’re raising their hands, they’re walking off. Nobody has ever seen that before.”
This isn’t just Trump thumping his chest, either. By August, ISIS’ losses were stacking like cord wood and a full third of all of ISIS’ territorial losses had occurred after Trump’s election.
When you think about it, it’s not hard to figure out why. Obama blocked 75 percent of air strikes that U.S. military pilots could have taken against the Islamic horde. By, Trump dropped 5,775 bombs and missiles on Raqqa in August — 10 times more than the U.S. used in Afghanistan that month.
Trump did something vastly different than his hapless predecessor.
He ordered the Pentagon to loosen rules of engagement for airstrikes, and charged the CIA to undertake targeted killing missions.
If was a day and night change from Obama’s never-ending list of excuses, and the Investor’s Business Daily proves it:
“It will take time to eradicate a cancer like (ISIS). It will take time to root them out.”
“There will be setbacks and there will be successes.”
“We must be patient and flexible in our efforts; this is a multiyear fight and there will be challenges along the way.”
“This is a long-term and extremely complex challenge.”
“This will not be quick.”
Do you have any doubts in your mind that Obama was intentionally protecting his Muslim brothers-in-arms?
Even if Obama had ever actually intended to defeat ISIS, Trump just showed him how a man gets things done.
