President Obama could take some serious instruction how to react to terrorism from the country of Jordan after ISIS burned one of their pilots alive.
Jordan promptly hung two ISIS fighters and started bombing them back to the… I almost said “stone age” but that’s where they live now. In short, the King of Jordan is unleashing hell on them, while Obama plays the back nine.
They also have painted a message on their F-16s. The Arabic hashtag says, “Step on ISIS.”
Fighter jets carried out airstrikes Thursday, then returned to fly over the home of the slain 27-year-old pilot, Lt. Moath al-Kasasbeh, in the village of Ay in Karak governorate.
“This is just the beginning and you shall know who the Jordanians are,” the armed forces said in a statement on state TV.
They claimed hits on ISIS training centers, arms and ammunition depots: “All targets were completely destroyed and all the planes returned to their bases safely.”
The air mission was named “Moath the Martyr.” State TV aired exclusive video footage of warplanes striking unspecified ISIS positions in Syria.
Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh later stressed to CNN that the airstrikes marked the beginning of his nation’s retaliation over the pilot’s death, but not the start of its fight against terrorism. He vowed to destroy ISIS.
“We are upping the ante. We’re going after them wherever they are, with everything that we have. But it’s not the beginning, and it’s certainly not the end,” Judeh said.
Why the United States just doesn’t clean these ISIS characters off the face of the earth is beyond me.
