Since their inception, ISIS has had it pretty easy when it comes to the full military might of the United States of America, until now. Donald Trump made it very clear from the beginning that he is willing to do whatever is necessary to destroy the terrorist organization and that includes dropping the largest non-nuclear bomb ever to be constructed right on top of their heads.
Unlike Obama, Trump has given full authorization to American generals to strike at ISIS in whatever way they deem most appropriate. Imagine that, a President who listens to his generals.
Now Trump has proven once again that he isn’t afraid to fight the good fight and deal some major damage to ISIS, this time in the form of drone warfare. Now ISIS is finally understanding what it is to have a real fight on their hands and face an enemy willing to pull out all the stops to defeat them.
According to The Sun:
THE US has mobilized a fleet of missile capable drones to blitz North Korea amid warnings it is running out of bombs to hit ISIS.
The Grey Eagle drones are designed to carry Hellfire missiles and have reportedly been deployed in South Korea as war looms with the North after Kim Jong-un’s third missile test fire this month.
The deployment is part of a built up of military ordered by US President Donald Trump.
Already the US has deployed Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) systems aimed at shooting down Kim Jong-un’s ballistic missiles.
And the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier group has now arrived in waters near the Korean peninsula yesterday, where it was joining the USS Michigan, a guided missile submarine that docked in South Korea on Tuesday.
But it is speculated that the US Airfore may use a non-nuclear bomb which is BIGGER than the MOAB unleashed on ISIS to destroy Kim Jong-un’s underground nuclear sites.
The Massive Ordnance Penetrator, or MOP, is a “bunker busting” explosive and the largest non-nuclear bomb which the US has at its disposal.
State department spokesman Mark Toner said: “In addition to Thaad these [drones] are defensive measures that are a response to what we – and by ‘we’ I mean South Korea, the United States and Japan – view as a real and credible threat to our security.”
Trump has been fighting an uphill battle from the moment he stepped into the Oval Office but is doing whatever he can to rebuild our military to its full potential.
While it is true that Trump inherited a mess from Obama, it’s vital that he does not make the same mistakes as the former President and heeds the advice of our very qualified military leaders.
So far Trump has proven that he willing to listen to the advice from our Generals and if he just continues to do so, ISIS will have their backs against the wall.
