With ISIS in retreat from Qayyarah, Iraq, the United States couldn’t help but use their air superiority to blow a few of them to pieces. The Combined Joint Task Force-Operation Inherent Resolve posted the following film of troops blowing an ISIS truck to smithereens with the words “When Daesh can’t quite get up to 88 mph.” It also has a caption that gives ISIS a good ribbing.
It amazes me that people still fight against the United States military. We are the most technologically advanced, we have the greatest everything, and we don’t lose. It’s just not ideal to enter a fight already down a few points on the scoreboard. Playing from behind rarely works in sports and it doesn’t work in war.
Really just a good life lesson for everyone in ISIS. You can hole yourself up in the dessert, hide in your shanties or compounds, and run all you want from the greatest military in this land. At the end of the day, we’re still going to be sending you to the 70 virgins you guys are promised when you die.
This still doesn’t top my favorite cockpit video from when some gunners sang “Bye, bye, Miss American Pie” as they mowed down an Afghan man from their Apache.
