American Forces Drive ISIS Out of Raqqa, Syria
Raqqa, Syria was the home base of the goat-raping fraternity better known as "ISIS." Until recently. Because American forces just front-kicked the door of Raqqa, and threw in some grenades while yelling "AMERICA, BITCHES!"
From The Independent:
US-backed militias have completely taken Isis' de facto capital, Raqqa, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said on Tuesday, in a major symbolic blow to the jihadist group.
The fall of Raqqa, where Isis staged euphoric parades after its string of lightning victories in 2014, is a potent symbol of the movement's collapsing fortunes. The city was used as a base for the group to plan attacks abroad.
This is great news for the entire Western world. ISIS has been wreaking havoc since it arrived on the scene some 6 to 7 years ago. Since then, they've done everything from burning people alive, turning women into sex slaves, and blasting Miley Cyrus's "Wrecking Ball" on repeat. Bastards had it coming.
The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an alliance of Kurdish and Arab militias backed by a US-led international alliance, has been fighting Isis inside Raqqa since June.
SOHR said 3,250 people were killed in the five-month battle, including 1,130 civilians.
Lemme do some quick math here for the errant leftists losing their crap over civilian deaths (which I grant you, is a lot) who won't be bothered swiping to their phone's calculator. Or using scratch paper to do the math the hard way: 2,120 baddies got a first class ticket to their 72 virgins. They're in for a shock. And not the S&M kind, either.
Let's all remember that terrorists are not uniformed soldiers marching in lockstep. They employ guerrilla tactics, purposefully hiding amongst civilians. Put simpler: human shields. ISIS uses them. As do the Palestinians, but let's not lose focus.
To channel my inner Ted Cruz, I'd also like to note the recent attacks against ISIS took place in June. As in June of this year. As in under President Trump, General Mattis et al. Which doesn't mean I'm discounting any and all contributions Obama may have made to this effort (typed for legal, disclaimer purposes). Still, this is a Trump/Mattis/American Military victory, and should be celebrated as such.
A bad day for ISIS is a good day for us. Hoorah, America. Hoorah.
