Using space weapons against ISIS. I wonder if these space weapons are just satellites or, according to the story, secret weapons?

Trump sounds, from his campaign, that he is serious about ISIS. He said he wants a plan to deal with ISIS in 30 days after he is in the WH.

During his campaign, Trump said he would give military commanders 30 days from taking office to come up with a plan for soundly defeating the Islamic State.

The military chiefs are prepared to give Trump their opinions to fight the Islamic state, this could include giving greater powers to commanders to use secret cyber warfare and space weapons the Top Air Force leader says.

GRAND FORKS AIR FORCE BASE, N.D. — Military chiefs are prepared to give President-elect Donald Trump the options he wants to intensify the fight against the Islamic State, including the possibility of granting commanders greater leeway to use secret cyber-warfare and space weapons, the top Air Force leader said.

"We’ve heard him loud and clear that he’s going to be looking for options,” Gen. David Goldfein, the Air Force chief of staff, told USA TODAY.

Secret weapons that usually require the highest level of govt approval could be used with a easier "permission". Disrupting communications, cyber weapons are on the known list, but there could be damage to legit website and servers.

Capabilities in those two areas are among the military's most closely held secrets, and their use now generally requires approval at the highest levels of government.
The military has the ability to use cyber weapons to shut down terrorist websites and disrupt communications, but it is cautious about authorizing such actions because of unanticipated effects beyond its intended targets, such as disrupting legitimate websites and servers.

a reply to: seasonalThat is hilarious. We don't need anything extravagant, we could defeat them with conventional warefare in less than a week. They exist right now because powerful western governments allow them to.

Don't worry, Trump is addicted to Social Media, he uses it all the time. He will not allow the military to jeopardize his fix for his addiction. Funny Trump doesn't come onto this site, he may have a spy here finding information for him.

Military Kinectic Bombardment - Project THOR

Such an awesome concept and doesn't cost as much as you'd think.

But I've always thought that a team of SEOs ( Search Engine Optimization ) would be better fitted to completely erase ISIS, they operate online solely as a means to market themselves, cut off their marketing, cut off their message and their organization.

What absolute tripe, space weapons are and should be a breach of UN law (if the UN wasn't directed by the U.S. and friends of course). Besides that, the best way to defeat ISIS would be to stop arming them and for certain individuals to cease using them as their own personal army.

I believe you are right.

There are theories that say the US is funding them and created them (ISIS).

The military can keep wondering why the sea keeps rising the fact that they kept causing more and more sinkholes by bombing other countries with space weapons. Mind as will build a Death Star and shoot ISIS on one area.

I swear to god, American soldiers are now the Empire soldiers.
