    This is the most under-reported story of the year! The Pincer movement (military maneuver where they bomb from the back and front of the battle, pinching in the foe) is being used by our Commander-in-Chief of the US-led Coalition in the middle east to combat the barbarians of the Islamic State.

    Almost every war has used this maneuver successfully but Obama did NOT use it. It's cause for suspicion for sure. Like Trump said in the campaign "Look, we’re led by a man that either is not tough, not smart, or he’s got something else in mind".

    But back to ISIS...from the liberation of Mosul in the east in Iraq and the west in Syria, the cease-fire that's going on, and the soon to be liberation of Raqqa could be the end of Isis' claim to statehood and it's state-building project. Trump is pulling it off! He's cleaning up Barack Obama's mess.

    And the mainstream media is ignoring it. Instead, they're talking about some phony conspiracy with Trump Jr.

    I first saw this on "The Daily Ledger" which is a news station I watch, thus no link. But you can watch his show on klowdtv.com at 8pm EST for free for one week or some tv providers carry it. It was broadcast on 6/14/17.

    The media doesn't report it because it's something Trump is being successful at...that messes up the media's "Project Failure" (my own coinage lol). Here's a link from Newsweek that describes the up and coming US-led coalition against Raqqa:

    Trump tweet: "ISIS is on the run and will soon be wiped out of Syria and Iraq"

    money and supplies, including weapons. cut them off you own em. ISIS is one of the best equipped terrorist groups ever. so that's what Trump should target IMO. would not surprise me to find our tax monies, thru the Islamic democrats supported these killers. actually they did. how many millions/billions did we give Iran?? guess who supplies ISIS with weapons??

    This article dated June 2014 in "The Fiscal Times" makes it clear how ISIS really got a helpful boost from the Obama administration.

    "One of the earliest major setbacks in the war against ISIS came last June when the U.S.-backed Iraqi army was routed by Islamic militants in the northern Iraq city of Mosul. Government forces retreated from the Islamic jihadists’ assault. They left behind a trove of costly military hardware, including U.S.-made armored Humvees, trucks, rockets, machine guns and even a helicopter.

    Last weekend, the new Iraqi prime minister, Haider al-Abadi, gave Iraqi state television the first detailed accounting of those lost weapons. Some were old or barely functioning, but others were in good shape and of great value to the ISIS militants.

    According to Reuters, the U.S.-made weaponry that fell into enemy hands including 2,300 Humvee armored vehicles, at least 40 M1A1 main battle tanks, 74,000 machine guns, and as many as 52 M198 howitzer mobile gun systems, plus small arms and ammunition.

    Although al-Abadi and other Iraqi and U.S. officials haven’t attached a dollar sign to the lost weaponry and vehicles, a back-of-the-envelope calculation of those losses might look something like this:
    • 2,300 Humvee armored vehicles @ $70,000 per copy. Total: $161 million
    • 40 M1A1 Abram tanks @ $4.3 million per copy. Total: $172 million
    • 52 M198 Howitzer mobile gun systems @ $527,337 per copy. Total: $27.4 million
    • 74,000 Army machine guns @ $4,000 per copy. Total: $296 million
    The grand total comes to $656.4 million, but experts say those losses represent just a portion of the many hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of U.S.-supplied military equipment that has fallen into ISIS’s hands and is being used against the U.S. and allied forces on the ground in Iraq and neighboring Syria."

    Bush won the Iraq war with a surge of troops that broke Al-Qaeda's back just before leaving office. he warned Bozo to keep the troop strength up but his election promise was to end the Iraq war. so he pulled them out. and guess who moved in and took over?? back to square one. Vietnam II
