With the ever-present threat of terrorism growing daily in the Middle East, it’s imperative now more than ever that we have a president like Donald Trump in the White House.
An ISIS leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, admitted his defeat in Iraq. He gave a “farewell speech” to the militant recruits he had amassed over the years. His advice to the other militants was to flee the war zone or to use suicide attacks to kill themselves, via Daily Mail.
If his followers chose to kill themselves, al-Baghdadi swore they would receive their 72 virgins in the afterlife.
His message has yet to be verified by U.S. intelligence officials, but it makes sense ISIS would be feeling desperate, considering that Iraqi forces, backed by the U.S. and the rest of the coalition, just took control of the main road in Mosul.
Michael Fallon, the British defense minister, announced a few days ago that ISIS is expected to be removed from the major cities of Iraq by the end of this year.
According to the site, Al Arabiya, al-Baghdadi admitted defeat in Iraq, but his exact whereabouts are unknown.
There have been several attacks on ISIS since Trump has taken office and we have seen significant casualty reports on their side, so the ISIS leader could very well be seeing the writing on the wall on this one.
The U.S. commander in charge of the force in Iraq reported that the military is expected to retake the cities of Raqqa and Mosul in six months’ time. Raqqa was the ISIS stronghold in Syria.
This is what Donald Trump promised to the American people — that ISIS and other militant terrorist organizations would be targeted and destroyed. No more stalling as with Obama, who preferred to make speeches about “stopping the threat” than to actually stop them.
If this report is to be believed, then the terrorists are already throwing in the towel because Donald J. Trump, a man of action, is our commander-in-chief.
