    Re: Good Guys Strike Back!

    Iraqi Special Forces(ISF) have cut off and surrounded "Old City" in Mosul. This is the oldest part of Mosul dating back 1,000 years. Kind of their "historic district." About 40 ISIS scum are being killed daily in this fight. It is street to street, house to house. But the ISF are making more rapid progress recently as ISIS resistance crumbles.

    US Special Forces are "boots on the ground" in Afghanistan and are fighting side by side with Afghan army units, in the region of the MOAB drop. The tunnel system is massive, and while the MOAB destroyed the hub of the system, there are still miles of tunnels with scores of separate "doors" and those are being systematically destroyed. According to reports, the MOAB took out the area where most of these tunnels merged. Now, the other end of many of these tunnels, some as far as 5 miles away, are being closed. Of course there were ISIS scum near the end of these tunnels who were not killed by the MOAB. But now they are isolated, without support, no command structure left, and they are trying to fight the Good Guys when we show up. But these are brief fire-fights. The scum "escape" back into their rat holes, and our guys do NOT pursue them, but rather set explosives and collapse the tunnel opening, trapping the ISIS fighters inside to suffocate.

    ISIS propagandists, supported by libtard sources, are spreading nonsense such as the MOAB did not work, and no one knows what really happened "because no news is coming out of that region." Well....two things:

    1. If "no news" is coming out of that region, how is it that these ISIS/libtard propagandists have enough information to proclaim that "Trump's bomb did not work"?

    2. The reason "no news" is coming out of that region is because US Special Forces, together with the Afghan Army, have total control of the region and are denying media and others access to the area. Clearly there is a new sheriff in town, and Marshal Trump is allowing our military on the ground the leeway it needs to conduct operations without micro-management from D.C. It is the Afghan Army that is providing the updates I referenced above. Each day they report to the world, via a statement, how many tunnels have been destroyed that day.

    There are also those "bleeding hearts" proclaiming that innocent civilians, captives of ISIS, were in those tunnels and that MOAB and the subsequent operations, have killed civies too. Unfortunately, that is probably true. It is a terrible side-effect of war. I think something like 30 million civilians were killed in World War II. Is anyone suggesting we turn back the clock and give Europe back to Hitler, just to avoid those civie deaths?

    "ISIS administrators"? Who exactly is an "administrator," secretaries??? Oh....bureaucrats!

    For more than a month, US sources report, drones have documented the movement, i.e. escape, from Raqqa of these administrators to another city. Seems ISIS is moving their capital from Raqqa before it is completely cut off and surrounded. ISIS controls most of the Deir Ezzor Province and is probably relocating there. In this way they can claim their capital city has not been captured and lost. Nope! they just relocated.

    The pro-moooslim terrorist, anti-Good Guy, website "anti-war.com" prints more garbage than the NY Times (and that's saying something).

    Re: Good Guys Strike Back!

    The Turks are jerks! Effing Turks attacked Kurdish forces in NE Syria, killing 6 wounding 9. The Turks want the Kurds to defeat ISIS, and then they will try to destroy the Kurds. Since NE Syria, thanks to the Kurds, has been rid of the ISIS scum, the Turks felt it was okay to attack the Kurds. NATO needs to stand up to the Turks.

    Meanwhile, Kurdish forces, supported by the US, have entered the city of Tabqa, 35 miles west of Raqqa. It is part of the overall strategy of the US-led coalition to isolate the ISIS-held city of Raqqa.

    ISIS is losing, on all fronts.

    Watched a video of the Kurds ambushing about 100 ISIS scum, who had gathered in an alley, ready to launch an attack. The video did not disclose where it was. A Kurd fired a shoulder-held rocket launcher....bam!...and then Kurds on rooftops opened up automatic weapons fire. About 5 or 6 ISIS scumbags managed to escape, and were seen running away across the desert. The rest were systematically shot. Even the wounded ISIS scum were shot. The Kurds are not taking prisoners.

    US moves units next to Kurds in Syria. A clear message for Turkey to back off. But, Turkish president Recep Erdogan issued a statement saying the Turks will continue to attack Syrian Kurds, whenever/wherever they wish. President Trump is scheduled to meet with Erdogan next month, and surely the hot topic will be the Turks' war on the Kurds.

    In the meantime, US forces moved thru several Syrian cities, on a major highway, drawing a lot of attention in an obvious statement to Turkey, do not mess with the Kurds. And, in the short term, the Turks will halt their air attacks against the Kurds to avoid hitting US troops by accident. But, we need a long term solution to this issue.

    Re: Good Guys Strike Back!

    Latest report out of Afghanistan, seems the MOAB (Trump's bomb) did more damage than first thought. As the good guys dig thru the rubble and still hunt some of the ISIS scumbag survivors, we are uncovering a lot of devastation and bunches and bunches of dead terrorists.

    Meanwhile in Syria, I love how libtard obummer apologists are trying to give him credit for recent successes. The 900 US Troops (a mix of Marines and Army Special Forces) were ordered last Fall to prepare to enter Syria to support US interests there (i.e. support the Kurds). These units did train and gear up, and about 400 Marines were deployed into Syria while still under obummer, of course, since Trump did not take office until January. Trump told the military to "take the gloves off" and become pro-active in Syria. The Army units were moved into Syria, joining the Marines, and immediately our guys "got into the trenches" next to the Kurds, so to speak. We've seen the results in about 4 short months. ISIS resistance is crumbling fast in Syria.

    And so now that things are going our way, the libtards (specifically some jerkweed guest on MSNBC) are crawling out from under their rocks with, "yeah, but those units were first ordered there by president obummer." Yes...and then ordered to stay out of the way and do nothing. The history revisionists will try to give obummer credit (and John Kerry, who was also mentioned).

    Trump is kicking ass! Well, no, actually Trump is just allowing our guys to do what they are trained to do and not micro-managing operations on the ground. After we destroy ISIS the obummer apologists will say, "well, Trump doesn't deserve any credit. He didn't actively participate in the decision-making there." BINGO! That's right. Trump is allowing our military commanders to make the decisions they need to make, without political interference from D.C. That's what a good manager does. That's what business managers do. You "hire" good, capable people, give them an overall strategic mission, then get the hell out of the way and let those talented people kick ass!!!

    No one anywhere is more capable than the wonderful people who serve in the US military.

    Re: Good Guys Strike Back!

    We warned combatants not to eff with us in Syria. That we will error on the side of caution. Well, the bad guys learned a lesson, obummer is no longer in charge and our military is no longer conducting operations like a bunch of snowflakes. Scratch a bunch of scumbags!!!

    On another note, very disappointing that Erogan is maintaining his hard stance on the Kurds. I guess it's not too surprising, given the long history of the matter, but I was kind of hoping the Turks would take a step back, at least. Yes, admittedly, I was hoping Trump might make a deal that would mitigate Turkey's operations in Syria against the Kurds. Maybe Trump is distracted with stupid stuff...like some memo...and/or maybe the Turks are just too entrenched in their anti-Kurd hatred.

    Erdogan is too busy trying to become the next Middle East strongman. No one will be able to make a deal with him unless the deal accomplishes his goals (NuOttoman Empire). Unfortunately, being nice to the Kurds won't do that.

    Are we really committed to doing more? And under what circumstances? I don't think we have provided a clear warning except show that we are willing to engage in a tit for tat exchange when they use WMDs.

    Re: Good Guys Strike Back!

    Ah....no, not talking about the cruise missile attack.

    Happened yesterday, or maybe the night before...that would be Thursday night. Assad's Syrians, accompanied by Iranian-backed Hamas units, were in a convoy on a major highway and were approaching an intersection. If they turned west at that point, it was because they were trying to flank allied forces, mostly Kurds. But between the Kurds and the approaching bad guys were US ground forces, dug in along that road. In years past, under obummer, Assad's military units ignored warnings not to approach US troops....and nothing happened. Under obummer, US forces were under strict orders not to fire unless fired-upon first. But, immediately after Trump was sworn in as POTUS US commanders on the ground sent word to the Syrians that we would treat any approach by Assad's troops or Iranian-backed terrorists as hostile, and shoot first and ask questions later.

    Without waiting, without hesitation, just as soon as that convoy turned west and was now approaching our troops, US airstrikes attacked and completely and utterly destroyed the convoy. Other than small group encounters, like patrols, this was the first time the Syrians tested our resolve with a large force. Had obummer, or Killary, been president the Syrians would have driven right past our position and attacked the Kurds, just as they had done before. But, not this time.

    Not a peep from Assad, and even the Russians and Iranians are remaining quiet on this. It's like, "oh shit!" the USA no longer has a pussy in charge. This will test Russia's and Iran's resolve to continue to support Assad. It's not over yet, and I expect some kind of reaction, especially from Putin who will "man-up" and try something, probably with a Russian airstrike against our ally, the Kurds. But Putin knows he faces a REAL leader in Trump.

    But of course, Trump has colluded with those same Russians...hmmm....wonder why Putin wanted Trump to win the election. Wonder why Putin tampered with all those voting machines across the country and stole the election from Krooked Killary. He had to know he was better off with another pussy in the White House.

    Guess we should all watch CNN and MSNBC to get answers to this perplexing question.

    Well, it was discussed in the liberalish LA Times.

    As far as Russia collusion. Whether there was or wasn't has almost because eclipsed by the Trump side show around the ordeal which is giving serious concern to the possibility that Trump has committed obstruction of justice. It isn't the crime, but the coverup.

    Oh, ya mean like the cover-up of Benghazi, of Fast and Furious, of the IRS targeting T-Party chapters, of Killary's use of illegal email, of all the murder victims of the klintons, of obummer's official application and transcripts to college, of his tampered-with birth certificate, of the lies about obummercare, etc.... those cover-ups?
