The Islamic state, known as ISIS, is all but gone and that’s an amazing Christmas gift for the free world.
It’s worth noting the history of this group. The group than ran across IRAQ like a buzz saw after President Obama removed all U.S. troops so he could do well in the 2012 election. Obama got another term and ISIS got a country full of oil fields and banks full of cash. Then President Obama declared ISIS a “jay vee team” right before they began slaughtering people for their religious views, chopping off heads and burning infidels alive in cages.
After that, Obama talked about a goal of “containment” of ISIS, and he blathered on about how tough it was to hit the ISIS headquarters in Raqqa, right before French warplanes bombed the bejesus out of Raqqa. Obama did what he could to help muslim terrorism, arranging prisoner trades, and of course airplanes full of cash for the terrorist sponsors in Tehran. Still, Obama never talked about defeating ISIS.
But Donald Trump did, as a candidate and now as President, and now it appears he’s accomplished the defeat the last President couldn’t even speak out loud.
