Another Campaign Promise Kept: Trump Bombs the Hell Out of ISIS – Islamic State Capital Falls
During the 2015-2016 candidate Donald Trump promised his supporters that he would not pussy-foot with ISIS.
Trump repeatedly told supporters,
“I’m going to bomb the hell out of them!”
Trump supporters LOVED IT.
After nine months in office President Trump it is now clear that President Trump kept this promise.
US-backed troops took control of al-Raqqa this week.
The Independent reported:
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.
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.
