I think Trump could cut that time down significantly if he wants to.
Doubtful, unless he wants to commit significant US forces to the task. Right now we’re running SOF, CAS, and some limited conventional forces run by DIV and higher HQs. That puts us at under 10,000. The Iraqis have the lead and are pursuing the fight.
Do we want to change that?
Hostages must be categorized as 100% expendable.
Terrorists must not be given safe passage unless surrendering.
feel free to add to the list
Two years? Western Europe from Omaha beach to VE day was 11 months. Give him 3 months or fire his butt.
Snipers aim for the small head, not the big one.
First, we have to ask our dear friends the Saudis to stop supporting jihadis. Then we have to stop pretending Obama and US Gov’t are “pro democracy” in Syria, when that is just BS. We are promoting Sunni take over there, and want to poke Putin in the eye there.
Next, ban anyone from North Africa, Mid-east and South Asia (ie. Muslims) from entering the USA.
After that, ISIS can do what it wants. Its not our problem any longer.
Stepped up air campaign
Vaporize that damnable well in Qom.
Trump, during the campaign, said we are going to be very
I hope he stays with that.
...strongly hint that the same fate could befall the kaaba stone if the spread by the sword doesn’t stop.
At least, Iraq is seeing ISIS being beaten, can’t really say the same for Syria. Some in Iraq estimated ISIS falling even sooner.
Fire this general and hire a man who can get it down in 6-9 months.
When we landed in Normandy it did not take 2 years to reach Berlin.
Assad is a big buyer of ISIS oil, His old man helped killed 250 Marines, screw him, screw the Russian propaganda, they ain’t doing hardly anything to ISIS who won back Palmyra and are still there.
“feel free to add to the list”
Artillery and 500lb iron bombs.
Works every friggin’ time it’s tried.
Ring them in and bomb the sht out of them. Don’t let them out. Make it hurt.
Whatever happened to those planes in Vietnam that could lay down rounds one inch apart over a whole football field in one second? Use those.
“Puff the magic dragon” they were called.
The minute that you cut the Saudis out of this game and their financial influence....ISIS is wiped out in roughly a hundred days. Go and look at the ammo, fuel and cost-items that ISIS has and continues to exhibit each and every day. None of this comes out of thin air.
Trump did say “bomb the shit out of them” several times during the campaign.
I listened to him say that just today on a YouTube video of a campaign speech.
It brought the house down.
