Syria urged Jordan to work with it to fight ISIS and al-Qaeda's Syria wing, condemning what it described as the "heinous" killing of a Jordanian pilot by militants, Syria's state news agency SANA said on Wednesday.
if this ends up being true this could be one of their better sanctuaries dissapearing and what they thought of as at least a non enemy may have turned into one over the pilot video

evidently the king of jordan took that to mean jump in an attack helicopter and strafe isis for a few hours

twitchy.com...
www.breitbart.com...


Jordan’s King Abdullah is reportedly personally involved in executing air strikes against Islamic State positions in the aftermath of the terrorist group’s brutal execution of Jordanian pilot 1st Lt. Moaz Kasasbeh. Shafaqna news and Iraqinews.com claimed to have confirmed with their sources that King Abdullah is personally involved in conducting the air strikes. What remains unclear is whether Abdullah is personally suiting up and flying a plane, or instead commanding units involved in the mission.
so thats quite the message if he really is taking the field of battle as i THINK the last king to actively do this was a British king ,throw in the fact that the pilot killed was part of his tribe so to speak.so i guess that is what the king of Jordan interpreted obamas message to mean either that or he did it to spite him

english.alarabiya.net... more directly from the military

The tribal equation Third is the tribal equation. Lt. al-Kasasbeh hailed from the Barasheh tribe in southern Jordan. The Barasheh tribe is part of the backbone, if you will, of the Jordanian monarchy especially the Jordanian armed forces. As the crisis over Lt. al-Kasasbeh unfolded, tribal elders tried to negotiate with ISIS for his release in a prisoner swap noted above. But the discussions were all a folly. ISIS used the Jordanian tribes similar to how they have abused Iraqi tribes. This fact makes matters worse because the Barsasheh tribe now will want revenge, and rightfully so. What comes next is very likely what has been discussed privately: A Jordanian military operation against ISIS in Syrian territory. Clearly, Lt. al-Kasasbeh’s martyrdom status is likely to launch exactly what ISIS wants from the Hashemite Kingdom. Jordan’s military and special operation forces, who are made up of key tribes, are likely to be unleashed to track down and eliminate ISIS on Syrian territory. Any Jordanian military operation on the ground will be fierce and well-armed, and now, more highly motivated than ever before. As I noted in a column last year, 10,000-12,000 SOF will be used hunt down Lt. al-Kasasbeh’s killers and their associates. Jordan may well be “the tip of the spear” for a ground campaign by other coalition partners. As we know, Amman’s SOF is world renowned with almost 30,000 SOF warriors augmented with enhanced training at the King Abdullah Special Operations Training Center (KASOTC). Force 71 will be used as well and their furiousness is legendary. Also possibly coming into play will be Jordan’s counter-terrorism and intelligence relationship with Chechnya and Russia who also have a vested interest in tearing apart ISIS. Of course, any Jordanian ground operation will be augmented by the Hashemite Kingdom’s own air force with coalition assistance. Indeed, this event, if it comes to fruition, may be the final battle for ISIS in Syria.
that is another factor i had not seen mentioned the tribal aspect as the article puts it.

www.washingtontimes.com... seems the sunis are rallying against isis over the recent execution they definitely bit off more then they can chew with their latest stunt



First the King invoked Clint Eastwood on Obama but got snubbed so it looks like he upgraded to Rambo.
He will make history if he actually goes into battle, it's been centuries since a King led an attack.
Selfies would be cool blazing away from a mounted gattling giving out free snackbars.

a reply to: TinfoilTP

from what ive read he is a major general and was special forces initially and is also an attack helicopter pilot,reports are confused he is either leading the attacks from helicopter gun ship or taking command of a battalion on the ground (some sources say chopper others say ground so still not sure on that) but yeah its a huge show of force and solidarity with his people where other politicians talk and make statements he talked his talk then immediately acting and pretty much got immunity from being overthrown especially if he pulls of any notable victories


www.nytimes.com... even pacifist japan May come out looking for blood over what happened to their citizen and the Japanese tend to know a few things about beheading and ISIS would do well to remember that

What was the idea behind setting the young man on fire?, ISIS was known for beheading and in certain cases shooting as a form of murder. I think putting someone in a cage and setting him on fire in the way that was shown has some symbolic meaning or was it just for maximum publicity and "shock" factor?.

In the coming months year will we see a even more barbaric means of murder from this group to further their twisted cause?.

www.jewishpress.com... know nothing about this source so take it with a grain of salt but if true that the king is on the battlefield and leading air strikes for probably the first time in 400+ years a king may have killed a "prince" on the battlefield and according to first source jordinian tanks are massing on the Iraqi and Syrian borders

www.ibtimes.com...


A day after the Islamic State released a video showing a Jordanian pilot being burned alive, Jordan launched airstrikes against the group in Iraq that killed 55 people, including a top commander known as the "Prince of Nineveh," Iraqi media reported Wednesday. The airstrikes came just hours after Jordan's King Abdullah II pledged a "severe" response.
so far the math favors jordan they lost one pilot and hung two isis commanders took out a 3rd with airstrikes along with 54 of his fellows

Jordan has announced the execution of 2 ISIS members held in prison in retaliation for the death of the Jordanian pilot.......currently on the front page.

Very little at this stage but will update as news comes in.

An eye for an eye.

Gotta love it when the extremists start fighting themselves... Imagine if President Obama said "you killed an American prisoner!? Give me three guys from gitmo stat!"

Who's the guy who said I laugh so I will not weep... yeah that...


...except that prisoners are already being killed in US prisons without requiring that kind of justification.

US "Democracy" is a form of extremism too, you know...

they both had trials far better then being tossed in a cage and lit on fire.


I'm not saying both did not deserve it, but were they killed in response to their actions or as a reaction to isis?

An eye for an eye leaves everyone blind... These acts of violence and terrorism by ISIS are in retaliation to years of violence, war and bombing raids by westerners in the Middle East.

An eye for an eye.

Who will stop the violence?

Neither of them should have lived as long as they did, based on their actions.
