One of Trump’s big election promises was doing everything he could to make ISIS into Was-Was. This is what a promise kept looks like.
Trump has a very simple solution to militant jihadis that threaten regional stability — bomb the hell out of them.
And that’s exactly what he’s been doing with regional leaders responsible for plotting militant terrorist attacks.
We’ve seen it with whose-your-al-Baghdadi.
We’ve seen it with the Iranian tears shed over the death of terrorist scumbag Soleimani.
There have been others along the way.
Now we can add one more to the list: Bashir Mohamed Qorgab.
He is — WAS, actually — a ‘senior terrorist commander’ in Al-Shabab.
The US carries out frequent air strikes in Somalia to target militants. It has not yet commented on the report. Qorgab’s family confirmed his death.
He was in charge of attacks on military bases, and was also involved in operations in Kenya, the report said.
Qorgab was killed on 22 February in the southern Somali town of Sakow, following a joint operation by the Somali army and US military, Somali state radio reported.
…Al-Shabab is linked to al-Qaeda and controls much of southern and central Somalia.
It has also carried out a wave of bombings in neighbouring Kenya, and is regarded as the most dangerous militant group in the region.
Last month, the group’s fighters attacked a base in Kenya used by Kenyan and US forces, killing three Americans – a US military service member and two contractors. — BBC
