Posted on 01/22/2017 11:03:00 PM PST by tcrlaf
Newly minted Secretary of Defense James Mattis celebrated his first full day at the Pentagon by overseeing 31 strikes against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.
Mattis entered the Pentagon Saturday with a smile for his first full day of work, and for good reason, considering the significant bombardment ISIS forces received.
A variety of fighters, bombers and remotely piloted aircraft engaged in the bombing run, which saw 25 strikes in Syria and six in Iraq.
In Syria, two strikes destroyed ISIS units and artillery near the town of Bab. ISIS forces in Raqqa, the terrorist groups de facto capital, took a heavy beating, as 22 strikes destroyed 12 tactical units, nine fighting positions, two underground improvised explosive bomb factories and an ISIS headquarters. The final strike targeted two ISIS oil wells in Deir ez Zour.

For CNN, there was NO OTHER NEWS happening on the entire planet, not this, not the mall shooting in San Antonio, and not the fifteen Americans killed by Tornados todays, that was more than setting the MediaMatters-approved, Daily Kos-distributed Anti-Trump talking points for the week.
My Spidey Sense is telling me that these were all targets the Pentagon wanted to hit, but they couldn't get the Obamunist Crypto-muzzies to approve the strikes.
We have to realize this is the beginning in earnest of the war against the uniparty, both elected and in their propaganda arm.
Agreed on your last sentence.
And #### CNN. They are playing a dangerous game and if they push the envelope too far making accusations about Trump, they will pay the price.
Now I’ve got the “Team America” song back in my head...
Terrorists, your game is through
You’re gonna have to answer to
I've been hoping for someone like him for a long, long time.
ReMember when Bush talked tough about all terrorist groups around the planet.
Trump won’t bluster. He’ll just do what should have been done fifteen years ago.
The sooner they pay that price the better.
On schedule and under budget.

WHAT? Ya mean we didn’t drop warning notice LEAFLETS 2 hours beforehand?
These are the same facilitates Obama has been forbidding our military from attacking on the pretext that a “civilian” or two in the middle of a jihadi stronghold might theoretically end up getting injured as collateral damage.
Hey ISIS.... ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES.
#12. New leaflet policy under Trump and Mattis. They drop leaflets two hours after the strikes.
As Hillary would say, “What difference does a couple hours make at this time”?
I watched a live video of Sec. of Defense Mattis chatting with POTUS on the Parade viewing stage. Among other interesting exchanges I read some lip that mentioned a mutual interest in tomorrows missions and that Mattis would report after engagements. Apparently a little welcome kiss to ISIS had been well planned.
The mutha fakin’ msm didn’t want to talk about these successful strikes against ISIS because it would only make them cry in the same way they cried late into Election night.
Hell just do what should have been done fifteen years ago.

One day last week (Tues or Wed or Thurs??) MSM reported that BO had ordered ISIS hits and went on to say that (guess so WE wouldn’t think it was a set up?) they were planned a week or so ago and after evaluation it would be determined if it was worthwhile or not.
Now I ain’t no ‘highfaluttin Ossificer’ but I don’t believe the way to fight a war is to give the enemy a few days to leave, hit a couple of specific targets, then evaluate what you did and MAYBE plan another strike.
Only time a ‘warning’ is given is like Dresden or Hiroshima, drop all you can, declare “You ain’t seen nothing yet”, flatten Nagasaki, declare “I told you, I am getting serious” and pray they don’t know that bomb #3 is still in production.....
Knowingly or not ISIS hides itself amongst the citizens..couple of sharp hits on suspected villages/towns/cities, using the “God will sort them out later” method and things start happening.
One thing about the radical Muslims anyone who ain’t them is the enemy and they don’t mind killing a few of their own as long as the mission is carried out.
THAT is how you win....We let these ‘little guys’ push us around because of all this ‘it aint fair we have so much more than them attitude’.
Believe these people heard the nicknamd ‘Mad Dog’ and figured it was like you name fat people slim, skinny people Lard butt, tall people shorty etc etc etc
They are going to find that MAD DOG means MAD DOG.
Gen George Patton:
“The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.” ...
“The coward is the one who lets his fear overcome his sense of duty”
I’m so NOT embarrassed by my new America.
Dang, can’t get this grin off my face.
