Last Remnants Of ISIS Surrender In Syria

Coverage about the defeat of ISIS has been eerily quiet in the mainstream media, and the last ragtag group of terrorists in Syria who pleaded for mercy has been sparsely reported.

Given the United States engagement in the Middle East since the 9/11 attacks in 2001, one would expect banner headlines above the fold on the New York Times and parades in the street. Such has not been the case. That may be that the once-heralded liberal Pres. Barack Obama not only failed to bring the murders to justice, he inspired the largest terrorist fighting force ever, ISIS.

That being said, Pres. Donald J. Trump brought ISIS to its knees in less than one year. The beleaguered fighters that just gave up in Syria were under continued Russian-Syrian fire, keeping them just out of the American military’s reach. As the last remnants of ISIS beg to quit the battlefield outside Damascus, many Americans are asking how did the war draw down so quickly and where do things go from here?

How Was ISIS So Thoroughly Defeated?

Both the Bush and Obama administrations took a somewhat half-hearted approach to eradicating Al-Qaeda and what Pres. Obama infamously called the “JV team,” ISIS.

Pres. Bush and, to a much greater extent, Pres. Obama, attempted to balance winning the boots-on-the-ground war with international politics. The result of holding back the military in an effort to not offend other world leaders ultimately prolonged the war, caused greater suffering, loss of life and spawned ISIS.

The military restraint that was employed allowed fighters to flee the battlefield or be released from holding cells in places such as Guantanamo Bay. They returned to rape and murder innocent women and children and fight American soldiers again. In many respects, Pres. Trump demonstrated the will of a strongman by deferring to U.S. generals to cull together a strategy to wipe ISIS from the face of the earth. Defense Secretary James “Mad Dog” Mattis called it “annihilation.

Basically, the joint military forces no longer allowed the jihadist to retreat. They offered surrender or death. That sentiment was best characterized by a social media post directed at ISIS by the Pentagon’s senior enlisted member. He stated on Facebook:

“ISIS needs to understand that the Joint Force is on orders to annihilate them. So they have two options, should they decide to come up against the United States, our allies and partners: surrender or die!”

“If they surrender, we will safeguard them to their detainee facility cell, provide them chow, a cot and due process.”

“HOWEVER, if they choose not to surrender, then we will kill them with extreme prejudice, whether that be through security force assistance, by dropping bombs on them, shooting them in the face, or beating them to death with our entrenching tools.”

“Regardless, they cannot win, so they need to choose how it’s going to be.”

After more than a decade and a half, cutting off escape routes, dropping a MOAB on an underground camp and the full knowledge jihadist were without options broke them in just 12 months.

Where Does ISIS Go From Defeat?

Although the U.S. military and the allies struck down upwards of 98 percent of the radical Muslim extremists on the battlefield, an estimated 1,000 to 5,000 insurgents may have deserted their comrades and slipped away in the dead of night. These few remaining terrorists are currently in hiding, and attempting to join extremists in other areas of the world. Many fear they have traveled to their country of origin undetected and are plotting against civilians.

As the final expulsion from Iraq and Syria is completed, ISIS faces the reality that it has failed to hold its “caliphate” in every corner, including Libya and the Philippines. The extremists continue to hold sway in Yemen after America’s Saudi Arabian allies dispelled the jihadists.

With the backing of the U.S. and other stakeholders, the dregs of ISIS are suffering surgical strikes and being hunted by elite special forces units. ISIS has touted the deaths of the American soldiers in Nigeria near Mali. Many expect the extremists will attempt to regroup in Asia, but growing American military collaboration makes any notion ISIS has of rebuilding its former might unrealistic.

Knowing the only options are “surrender or die” appears to have broken the terror group’s back.

  1. The military has been hindered by the restraints of the politically correct wimps in D.C. With such things as rules of engagement. Not being able to do something until the cameras were on the “self important” shot callers. When President Trump came into office – he took those hand cuffs off and said go kick some ass. The power was taken away from the “community organizer” types and given back to professional soldiers. The military gets ALL of the blame when something goes wrong – but when everything goes right the camera hogs from D.C. jump up and take ALL of the credit.

    1. X pres. Bath House BarryOHOMO, the Brown Clown, aided the terrorists when he sent $billions on pallets to Iran, an admitted terrorist bankroller. President Trump is taking care of another problem that BarryOHOMO created.

  2. General Mattis is doing the right and only sensible thing. General Sherman said, ” War is Hell. War is cruelty, and the crueler it is, the sooner it will be over.” General Sherman knew how to win a war and so does General Mattis.

  3. So many of our brave military have been killed or severely injured due to “negotiations” that didn’t work from previous administrations. Our own military was crippled. Obama never meant for the US to succeed. Thank God for our leader, President Trump and our wonderful military. The handcuffs have been removed from our Generals and now we can look forward to peace someday, hopefully soon. I am so very proud of our military and always have. MAGA!

  4. yOU SHOWED THEM ALL WHAT YOU WERE MADE OF MR. TRUMP AND YOU DID WHAT YOIU PROMISED
    AMERICA YOUR WOULD DO. IT IS TOO BAD IT COULD NOT HAVE BEEN DONE PRIOR TO YOUR TIME
    NOW LETS SEE HOW LONG IT TAKES THEM TO GIVE YOU CREDIT FOR THE GREAT JOB YOU ARE DOING
    INSTEAD OF CONSTANTLY SLANDERING YOU AND BRINGING YOU DOWN
    WAKE UP AMERICA AND SHOW ME. TRUMP HOW MUCH YOU APPRECIATE WHAT HE IS DOING AND
    GIVE THE MAN CREDIT FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE UP TO NOW.
    IF AMERICA DONE NOT WANT TO SHOW HOW MUCH THEY APPRECIATE YOU MR. TRUMP
    COME TO CANADA AND WE WOLD LOVE TO HAVE YOU TAKE CHARGE OF OUR COUNTRY.
    WE TRULY NEED A MAN WHO HAS BALLS. GOD BLESS

  5. American military, under President Trump, have proven the way to destroy your enemy is to give the military their mission, (such as destroy ISIS), give them their reasonable limits, (you may not deliberately attack friendly armed forced, you may not use nukes……. etc…) and tell them to make it happen. Then let them do their job.

  6. Let’s get real. The credit belongs to Putin, not Trump or his generals. It has been agreed to cut ISIS loose because capture & interrogations will reveal that Israel & the U.S. secretly backed them. The goal was regime change. It didn’t work. Assad is still in power in Syria. This doesn’t mean that this union & France won’t try something new. Zionist controlled despots are just that. I’m ashamed to have voted for Trump. He did a 180. Look what we did to Gaddafi’s aquifer project. Bombed it with depleted uranium. We have become like the Zionist Talmudic Jews. Merciless butchers.

    1. You are a total idiot! There is nothing more to add to your obviously skewed view of President Trump and Israel.

    2. The 2011 bombing in Libya in retaliation to Gaddafi’s aggressions, like always, when a military is trained to win with force what diplomats failed to gain via words and votes with dictators, one can expect to see unfortunate by-products. The great man made river can certainly be reopened, if really practical. But, population control and desalinization using energy from nearly free hydrogen is almost here. It can also be recombined with the oxygen also released by Sun driven new leaf emulation echnology. Recombined after being separated from salt water, one harvests salt and pure water.

      No need to make Gaddafi a hero even if he tried to emulate ancient Pharaohs and state jobs building Pyramids. None of this history deserves being marked by Jewish secret wars using my protestant leaders as pawns in their effort to survive vs the strange fellows of various Islamic teaching.

    3. As is evidenced by my previous comment, the reaction to it is truly unbelievable. The psy-ops is truly effective. Obviously no one has even bothered to do any meaningful research. They just choose to accept the manufactured fake news by our Jewish owned media. We are being destroyed from within & only a few are aware. Now the censoring is being stepped up & history is being rewritten. Not a peep from the citizenry. What will everyone do when they reveal themselves while butchering the informed resistance. Fellow Americans that bothered to think & ask questions.

  7. If the swamp/democrats/rinos continue their coup attempt against our constitutionally elected president, we will need to use those same methods and our military to round them up within our orders and give them the same options given to ISIS. Not only will it stop that seditious and treasonous effort of the left and globalists, but will have the added benefit of cleaning our government of its anti American fifth columnists at the same time.

  8. The Russian military and the Russian air force defeated ISIS.
    The USA were protecting the ISIS terrorists and wanted to use them to remove Syrian president Assad.

    1. I take you are a Russian, you dumb asswipe. Damn your reply shows so much stupidity it’s not even funny. Get you Muslim loving jacjass. Hell President Trump is the only one who had the BALLs to actually stop those bastards. Butchers the ONLY Butchers here is u. I don’t for one damn minute believe u voted for President Trump. You are just to stupid.you actually believe the bullshit you just wrote. That is so sad. Then get the HELL out of this Country u Muslim loving pig. Damn I am ashamed that someone like u actually lives here. Assholeanother

  9. Anything that makes Obama look bad is under reported. Anything Trump accomplishes is either ignored or disparaged. The media has bastardized itself for the jerkoff liberals and their coverage has become hysterically riddled with jackass remarks and positions. The MSM has tragically damaged their reputation and no one believes any of their rantings .

  10. Why the surprise? Bush and Obama were doing the same thing Kennedy and Johnson did in Viet Nam! Some of us remember how that turned out. Many of us will NEVER forget! Namby-pamby civilians trying to run a war from the sidelines with their “rules of engagement” cost thousands of American Servicemen their lives. President Trump is smart enough to hire someone that knows how to get the job done, give him an objective, and then LET HIM DO HIS JOB!
    Well done Gen Mattis, well done President Trump!

    1. Yes, I too remember the Viet Nam War, though I was lucky enough to not have been in-country, I was in the army at the time. Kennedy and Johnson killed a lot of Americans in that war.

      Finally we have a President who isn’t afraid to stand up for America! God Bless Our President!

  11. totally right, your view ! Russia knew what was goin on. They could have done it without the 2 “Trump-Interventions”.
    Just looked better that way and the USrael/GB/F still have a foot on Syrias Oil and Gas. NOT RIGHT !!!!

  12. The USA has lost far too much “blood and treasure” in prolonged fighting in the mideast, beginning with Operation Desert Storm (1991). Why so many losses? Because of the “restrictions” mandated by too many political fat cats, in DC and elsewhere. Now, “the cuffs are off”, our military is winning because they have been given back their right to use their proper skills.

  13. The article states that, towards the end, Russian bombing basically kept those subhuman Muslims out of our military’s reach, so that tells me this whole end of ISIS was accomplished thru a joint venture between us and the Russian military. I’m a US Army combat who Obama the Bayraq decided to send over to that sandbox Afghanistan, so ISIS being defeated by any means is a great thing. Say, anyone know where we can apply for a “waterboard operator” position? There’s a job I’d do free of charge.

  14. Their back may be broken but we still need to cut off their heads. If we don’t kill off their leaders, new groups with different names will pop up hear and there around the world headed by the very leaders we let go.

  15. I was surprised to learn that our military and other military supporters were allowing ISIS to leave an area during war activity or otherwise live. Yes, that is the way to keep a war eternal all right. Even people in the old days centuries ago knew the way to take care of your enemy trying to kill you was to encircle them and not let them leave even if you end up having to starve them to death to make them quit. To fight a war and not win it gives the war and your children in the future to those who win the war against you.

  16. What happened is President Trump didn’t try to fight a politically correct war, they went in and kicked ass! Didn’t Obama furnish gun to ISIS? He didn’t try to stop them from growing. What kind of rules for war is part of the UN rules, {politically correct rules}? It seems strange that we have NOT won a war since WW11, until NOW!
