Kirsters Baish| The Left continues to blame guns for all of our problems. They try to tell us that our own citizens pose as much of a threat to our country as Islamic extremists, but this is simply not the case. ISIS, an Islamist national terrorist group, has been trying to massacre Americans for a while now. Former President Barack Obama actually referred to ISIS as the “jayvee team.” They have become one of the most (if not THE most) dangerous terror organizations in the entire world. The Trump administration, however, has been working towards the downfall of the Islamic State.
Former President Barack Obama didn’t give the United States a clear strategy for fighting ISIS. While on his campaign trail, President Trump made it clear to the American people that he would do more to fight this terrorist group and others like it. It wasn’t long after Trump came into office that he followed through on his promises to fight against ISIS.
After an ISIS attack that killed a United States Green Beret, President Trump made use of his authority to allow the first ever use of the MOAB bomb. It destroyed an entire string of terrorist tunnels and killed nearly 100 of their fighters. After that, the United States backed fighters took over the city of Mosul. This forced ISIS fighters to cower all the way to Syria.
There is more good news. The war against these terrorists has had some interesting twists and turns. There has been some good news in the last few days. While ISIS has claimed that their fighters would rather die than succumb to capitulation, over 1,000 ISIS fights have surrendered. (This is only between last Sunday and now.)
The New York Times reported:
More than a thousand Islamic State fighters passed through that room this past week after they fled their crumbling Iraqi stronghold of Hawija. Instead of the martyrdom they had boasted was their only acceptable fate, they had voluntarily ended up here in the interrogation center of the Kurdish authorities in northern Iraq.
For an extremist group that has made its reputation on its ferociousness, with fighters who would always choose suicide over surrender, the fall of Hawija has been a notable turning point. The group has suffered a string of humiliating defeats in Iraq and Syria, but the number of its shock troops who turned themselves in to Kurdish officials at the center in Dibis was unusually large, more than 1,000 since last Sunday.
These ISIS surrenders are not normal for this group of terrorists. Mosul, which is Iraq’s second largest city, took nine months to fight for. In comparison, very few ISIS fighters surrendered during this time. It wasn’t long before Tal Afar fell, which only took 11 days. Nearly 500 of ISIS’s men surrendered.
Coalition forces have surrounded the ISIS capita of Raqqa. This means that ISIS may soon be defeated once and for all. With 1,000 of their fighters having recently surrendered, you can bet more will take suit. It’s great to see President Trump following through on his campaign promises. It’s clear that end for ISIS is coming near.
