I noticed in Obama's last week or so some very unusual strikes at the last minute.
US B-2 bombers struck and destroyed two ISIS camps in Libya overnight, with initial estimates that over 80 militants were killed, US officials told CNN Thursday.
he mission was approved several days ago by President Barack Obama and is expected to be the last short-notice military operation ordered by him, according to sources.
to me this was the Obama admin removing a few key personnel who knew the facts the us never wanted to admit, that they were the primary source of backing for ISIS.
Now Trumps in, I hope Mad Dog blitzs all the terrorist scume

I knew Trump didnt know forgien policy but jesus. Iran has been powerful in the region for a long as time. Well before the US even got involved in the middle east. I guess he thinks the Iran Nuke deal is all the reasons for Iran?

Many seem confused here..
Just because there is a new president, it doesn't mean that their strategy against ISIS changes overnight.
In fact, looking at the news page on defence.gov shows that just before Mattis took charge, 90 ISIS boats were hit in a 3 day campaign as well as 28 seperate campaigns the day before he took over.
