A ranking officer at the Pentagon took to Facebook on Tuesday to the dismay of many liberals and pseudo-intellectuals. Snowflakes feel like a shovel has hit them in the face after reading the post from the Senior Enlisted Advisor to the Chairman.
The smiles of both ISIS and snowflakes melted away after reading Army Sgt. Maj. John Wayne Troxell’s post. Using social media as a means to connect with people is being utilized like never before. Since their inception, ISIS has been recruiting people across the world using social media.
The ability for the self-proclaimed caliphate to call and entice people is not unique to any death cult. By giving young people a sense of purpose and a feeling of belonging, the jihad appeals to some people. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has identified that many defectors suffer from depression and may not have much family.
The Islamic State has been able to recruit people of all races and religions in almost every country. They have radicalized people and transformed ordinary citizens into domestic terrorists. They have been able to reach such a wide range of people using social media like Facebook and Twitter.
By putting his plea on Facebook, the advisor is hoping to reach the remnants of the radicalized group. Troxell reveals that the entire United States military is under orders to annihilate the terrorist organization. He begs the terrorists to surrender because the other choice is death.
According to a report on the first of January, Operation Inherent Resolve has revealed the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) have lost 98% of their territory. At the end of last year, Moscow announced Syria had been freed from the Wahabis. The free forces of Iraq have reclaimed the last strongholds of Raqqa and Rawa.
Losing almost all their territory, many fighters have retreated to the caucuses or the Balkans. The migrant crisis continues sending thousands of people into Europe every month, and unfortunately, human traffickers and non-government agencies are only too willing to facilitate travel. While reports suggest most soldiers have fled the region, about 3,000 remain in the Islamic State of Syria and the Levant (ISIL).
It is to those who have decided to stay that the army officer speaks. He tells them in the Facebook message surrender will provide them with food, a bed, and a fair trial. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has welcomed all fighters of the Islamic State who choose to call Canada their home.
In 2017, the Canadian government offered to settle a suit with a former Guantanamo detainee and suspected terrorist. The case argued that Canada had violated his rights by allowing the United States to torture him in Cuba. Canada awarded the man $10.5 million USD out of their taxpayer coffers.
While America may not be as accommodating as our polite neighbors to the north, the army official announces people who surrender will be treated humanely and in accordance with the Geneva Convention. He lets enemies of America know their cooperation does not go unappreciated.
The other option Troxell offers to the people who continue to fight under the black flag is a war of attrition. He threatens the terrorist they will be targeted with extreme prejudice. He infers the result of this war will leave no members of the group alive in the region.
Army Sergeant Major John Wayne Troxell vows if enemy forces are not defeated by security forces, then bombs will be dropped on them. If dropping bombs on the enemy encampments does not work, Troxell promises to execute the rest. Any dissidents who refuse to be shot in the face will be beaten with a shovel.
The high-ranking Pentagon official threatened battle-hardened terrorists with entrenching equipment on Facebook. Troxell declares there is no chance the extremist group can win and demands they make a choice immediately.
Knowing that social media is a powerful tool to be utilized in the cyber age, the Islamic State is using it with increased vigor trying to replenish their ranks. President Trump has been using social media to promote his agenda as well. Now his administration and subordinates are learning how effective the power of social media can be.
ISIS needs to understand that the Joint Force is on orders to annihilate them. So, they have two options should they…
