Newly appointed Secretary of Defense James ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis was really looking forward to his first day at work in his new position.
He walked in today all smiles because he had a great weekend. He took charge just as soon as he possibly could, which was Saturday, and he went right to work. He knew what his first-day plan would be, and was chomping at the bit to get things moving.
On Saturday, he clamored ISIS with 31 strikes. Per Daily Caller:
“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 group’s 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.”
“ISIS forces in Iraq suffered several casualties as well. One strike in the city of Rutbah destroyed a tactical unit and vehicle, two weapons caches and a mortar. Another in Beiji left a unit and vehicle destroyed. A strike in Kisik destroyed a building and tactical unit. Another in Tal Afar also destroyed a unit, truck and command node. The city of Mosul, which acts as the terrorist group’s regional capital in Iraq, received two strikes, which destroyed two units, three fighting positions, a tank, and a car bomb factory.”
“The terror mastermind is said to have been wounded after a bombing raid in Al-Ba’aj, it has been reported locally, but not yet confirmed.”
President Trump promised that he would wipe out ISIS quickly and be rid of them within 30 days, and he put the right man for the job as Secretary of Defense, and this once again proves why he deserves the moniker of ‘Mad Dog’. While Obama did very little to defend us from ISIS, the Trump administration is working to annihilate them pronto. President Trump is keeping his promises to the American people, and he is not only ‘Making America Great Again’, he is ‘Making America Safe Again’.
