Mag Dog Mattis Angers Liberal Media By Saying War Against ISIS Has Moved From “Attrition Tactics” To “Annihilation Tactics”
Secretary of Defense James Mattis has announced a change in tactics in the fight against ISIS that has Leftists fit to be tied.
“We’re going to stop them there and take apart the caliphate.”
Under the previous administration, when ISIS wasn’t being dismissed as the jay-vee team, the US was engaging in a practice of driving the jihadist militants out of the areas that they were trying to occupy.
General Mattis told the Sunday talk shows that the strategy would be changing.
Instead, explained the life-long soldier, the tactics would be to cut off escape for militant Islamists who were engaging in combat, and then grind them into dust.
“We have already shifted from attrition tactics, where we shove them from one position to another in Iraq and Syria, to annihilation tactics where we surround them.
Our intention is that the foreign fighters do not survive the fight to return home to North Africa, to Europe, to America, to Asia, to Africa. We’re not going to allow them to do so.”
The change in strategy has got to be infuriating to Liberals and Progressives alike, who are constantly promoting the idea that jihadists would simply stop what they are doing if only their economic circumstances were to improve or if the Western world would only approach ISIS with love and empathy.
Immediately after the Manchester bombing at an Ariana Grande concert, that targeted thousands of young girls who wanted to see the performance, pop-star and Liberal activist Katy Perry appeared on the Elvis Duran show to suggest that the world just needs to come together, tear down border walls, and co-exist.
“…I think that the greatest thing we could do is just unite and love on each other, and like, no barriers, no borders, like, we all need to just co-exist.”
It’s fun to note that the celebrities that are calling for the abolishment of borders, barriers, and who want the world to get along are the exact elitists who live in mansions that have borders, barriers, and hired security forces to keep others out of ‘their land.’
London Mayor and openly anti-Trumper, Sadiq Khan, had previously said that those living in London should just expect that radical Islamic attacks are to be the new norm and a consequence of living in a major city.
The Trump administration, and more specifically Secretary of Defense James Mattis, is not accepting the idea that the Islamists will be stopped with empathy, will not stop if we accept that they are part and parcel to western society, and will only keep coming back if the strategy is to militarily drive them out of areas that they occupy.
Instead, the retired general will be leading American forces towards the total and complete destruction of ISIS and their caliphate.
