Turkey dealt with ISIS like you do a rabid dog.
Turkish jets and tanks hammered 100 ISIS targets in Syria just hours after the terror group’s gunman killed 39 New Year’s Eve revelers in an Istanbul nightclub.
Dramatic aerial footage shows warplanes using rockets to obliterate ISIS hideouts near the towns of al-Bab, Tadif and Bzagah in the north of the war-torn country, killing 22 extremists and destroying buildings. – Dailymail
This clip shows us three explosions.
ISIS [has] claimed responsibility for the Istanbul shooting, that also left 69 wounded.
The ISIS-linked Aamaq News Agency said the New Year’s attack was carried by a ‘heroic soldier of the caliphate who attacked the most famous nightclub where Christians were celebrating their pagan feast.’
It said the man opened fire from an automatic rifle in ‘revenge for God’s religion and in response to the orders’ of IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
The group described Turkey as ‘the servant of the cross.’ — DailyMail
Can someone please let Obama and the other Democrats know how a real leader responds to a threat against his nation? This is partly why the Dems lost.
Remember Wikileaks showed us exactly how top Democrats (in this case, Podesta) see this issue: “Better if a guy named Sayeed Farouk [sic] was reporting that a guy named Christopher Hayes was the shooter.” — Foxnews
Obama called them ‘workplace violence’ and has to be dragged kicking and screaming to even acknowledge Islamic element.
A Muslim-majority nation (Turkey) has no such difficulty. And they answered with the only language the Islamists would understand… a show of force.
How do we KNOW a show of force works? Because it has worked before.
Far from trying to draw us in, KSM said that al-Qaeda expected the United States to respond to 9/11 as we had the 1983 bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut — when, KSM told Mitchell, the United States ‘turned tail and ran.’
‘Then he looked at me and said, ‘How was I supposed to know that cowboy George Bush would announce he wanted us ‘dead or alive’ and then invade Afghanistan to hunt us down?’’ Mitchell writes. ‘KSM explained that if the United States had treated 9/11 like a law enforcement matter, he would have had time to launch a second wave of attacks.’ He was not able to do so because al-Qaeda was stunned ‘by the ferocity and swiftness of George W. Bush’s response.’ –Townhall
That’s a BIG difference from what Obama’s Canadian BFF
Justine Justin Trudeau once said: ‘If you kill your enemies, they win.‘
So later this month, Obama stops and Trump gets to take over. The world can expect to see a change in how America responds to threats.
