They thought they had themselves a slick little ‘transit hub’ for bringing in ISIS fighters from Syria. They were wrong.
How fitting that America drops a devastating payload on ISIS — by AIR no less! — right around the time we’re all remembering the 18th Anniversary of 9/11.
If the jihadis had any hopes of celebrating that occasion, they didn’t live long enough to see the day.
Stealth jets hammered an ‘ISIS-infested’ island in Iraq.
‘Quanus Island’ on the Tigris River, near Mosul served as a ‘transit hub’ for bringing ISIS fighter from Syria into Iraq. That transit hub no longer exists.
Between the US bombing run, and a visit paid by Iraqi special forces, that ISIS base has been effectively and permanently ‘decomissioned’.
Here’s the footage of the bombing.

Colonel Myles B Caggins, spokesman for Operation Joint Resolve, tweeted on Tuesday: ‘Here’s what it looks like when US Air Force F15 and F35 jets drop 36,000 kg of bombs on a Daesh infested island.’
Daesh is a derogatory Arabic term for ISIS.
Troops from the 2nd Iraqi Special Operations Forces Battalion were then sent in to clear the area, which was described as a ‘transit hub’ for ISIS fighters coming from Syria into the Mosul, Makhmour, and Kirkuk regions of Iraq.
Dramatic video of the bombing raid shows the island lit up from end-to-end with explosions that leave virtually no part of it untouched.
Further video taken by Iraqi troops on the ground shows huge plumes of smoke rising into the sky as the island is pounded by explosions.
It’s pretty amazing what kind of precision placement our military can put down on a target, isn’t it?
Aren’t you glad you finally have a president that took the ISIS threat seriously?
We’ve all seen the dishonest games the left have played with the power they’re entrusted with, they’re obviously unworthy of that trust.
But what about 2020? Could a moral person pull a lever for Trump with their integrity intact? Would Jesus himself vote for Trump? We’re glad you asked. There’s a brand new book that covers precisely that question:
“Would Jesus Vote For Trump?” by Doug Giles and Brandon Vallorani.
Would Jesus ever choose someone, with a less than stellar past, to be a leader? Would Jesus be cool with how Trump blasts CNN, The Left, and his feckless ‘compadres’ on The Right? What about Health Care? Would the Great Physician give Trump’s opposition to ObamaCare the ‘two thumbs up?’ Find out in this BEST-SELLER!
