President Donald Trump has vowed to take a hard-line stance against terrorism.
Translation: America’s enemies better be afraid…VERY afraid.
This is quite the reversal because despite our former commander-in-chief’s claims that he too was against terrorism, his record in office yielded plenty of questions.
For instance, why did Barack Obama apparently invite more dangerous individuals onto U.S. soil? Why did we continue to give Muslim immigrants and Syrian refugees every benefit of the doubt?
But there’s no question with Trump. There’s no ambiguity, no hemming and hawing; he just straight-up says Radical Islam is going down, and this administration will take every measure to make sure that happens.
And it helps to have someone like General James “Mad Dog” Mattis in charge, too. Remember when he did THIS on day one?
“A United States Marine Corps detachment has landed in Syria and is outside the Islamic State group’s ‘capital’ of Raqqa.
The plan has been in the works for some time.
The deployed troops are from the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit, which left San Diego in November. Two defense officials said that along with the Marines, the Navy ships also brought along M777 Howitzers, powerful artillery guns that can fire 155-millimeter shells.
The artillery will support a U.S.-backed local force preparing to attack Raqqa. American infantrymen will also aid in securing supply lines for Syrian rebel forces.”

The Obama administration did not approach the deadly Islamic State this way. No, this is new. And it’s LONG overdue.
The Post added that up until now, “the Pentagon has mostly shied away from using conventional forces in Syria” and again, we have to wonder why Obama seemed so intent on protecting – or at the very least, ignoring – America’s biggest foe.
Well, let’s not think about that.
Instead, let’s hope and pray that U.S. forces gets the job done and with this successful strike, we’ll be one step closer to eradicating ISIS from the face of the earth.
Evil MUST be vanquished!
