How does this compare to our operations before James "Mad Dog" Mattis took over? Are these operations a step up, or different in some way, from the past few weeks of strikes/operations?

Now that a Republican is in the White House they will be publicized.

Well Trump did campaign on wiping Radical Islamic Terrorism off the face of the earth.

Cant imagine why the press would be checking to see if he actually doing the thing he said he would.

/looks around for a rationalization for a second thread.



That was posted in "War on Terrorism", and this is posted in "Middle East Issues".

This thread is a different conversation, about armies and nation building, not terrorism.

They bombed two Daesh oil rigs.

Should slow down their income.

I feel those forums are around such a similar topic there might not be justification, but I'm not complaining.

Well, that's his job after all.

I hope Trump and his administration step up strikes against IS around the Deir Ezzor (or Dayr Az Zawr) area, the Republican Guard units defending that city desperately need some relief. Just make sure they don't hit the Government troops this time like Obama did a few months back...

He's going to have to do a lot better than that if he wants to get a Nobel Peace prize like Obama.

Obama, Hillary and all droned/killed at least 2400 people including at least 200 children.
