On In January of 2014, this statement was made by Barak Obama about the AQ Affiliates (that soon merged into ISIS) in Iraq:

Falluja was the first ISIL/ISIS conquest of a city, in January 2014. Obama flippantly dismisses Falluja as a "Profoundly Conservative Sunni City." in the above piece.

In June, ISIL had completed a merger with several Al Qaeda affiliates, and then broke with the Al Qaeda organization.

Here is ISIS, 2014-2015:


Like lightening, ISIS conquered Mosul and Ramadi, prompting a huge crisis in Iraq. Then they followed up with the seizure of Palmyra, and further encircled Aleppo.

An article from BI captures the sense of "Shock and Awe" at the rapid expansion of the "JV Team" in May 2015.

Russia began intervening on behalf of Syrian Government forces in the Fall of 2015.

Aleppo and Palmyra were finally liberated in late 2016, the key combats during and after the Elections, much to the chagrin of the Neoliberals and their Media Machine (see posts to follow, I just found more evidence that Samantha Power, Sunstein's wife, is a total Cunt, btw).

Mosul was declared liberated in July of 2017 by the Iraqi Government.

Here is ISIS today, in late 2017:


Thanks to the magic powers drawn by the Orb of Cofeve:


... and letting Arab Special Forces, Kurds, and Russians, along with US air support and advisers, work their magic without interference from Neoliberals and Political Islam symps.

The defeats of ISIS under Trump's watch is a major accomplishment; Obama reacted very late to the crisis and indeed apologizes for ISIS' early gains in 2014-2015.

It helps that Obama isn’t able to give the “good terrorist” weapons anymore.

Care to explain who actually defeated the main forces of ISIS? Thought not. To single out Trump for praise is just ridiculous and shows a glaring lack of awareness (or more likely deliberate misrepresentation ) of what actually happened.

How about starting by explaining the radical shifts in policy that Trump implemented back in May? You know, those things that made all the difference to the campaign as distinct from the Iraqi army finally being sufficiently combat ready to drive ISiS out of Mosul (for example).

There are Good terrorists, Bad terrorists, and Ugly terrorists. Actually, they are all UGLY terrorists. Have you seen their faces?
As long as they are willing to kill each other, let's give them lots of weapons.

Until they use those weapons against us and our own allies.

What trump policies in late 2016 lead to this liberation?
