War on Terror
Do you believe the United States is at war? Is there a declared War on America underway at this time? Has it been underway for almost 20 years? The answer is yes to all three questions. If you said "no" to any of these questions you are wrong! You have most likely been infected by the agenda peddling of the American mainstream media. To help you understand the facts, watch the National Geographic documentary, Inside 9/11-War on America. This series can be purchased at NatGeo or you can view it on YouTube. The YouTube videos are divided into 12 segments, segment 1 of 12 can be found here. The other 11 episodes can be found in the same YouTube area. Some like to make fun of the title "War on Terror". "What kind of war is that?" "It is a made up War." "We are fighting a War in Iraq and a War in Afghanistan, not a War on Terror." Well, as for fighting individual wars, that is just moronic. We were fighting multiple fronts in Europe and Asia as a part of the WWII effort. This War on Terror effort is and will continue to be fought on multiple fronts (Afghanistan, Iraq, now ISIS, Libya, Yemen, maybe Iran, and unfortunately here at home). So, call it anything you want, but it is real. And, as with every other war, history will find an appropriate label for this conflict and this period in human history. If you believe that this threat is over now due to the killing of Osama Bin Laden on May 2, 2011, then you are again wrong. The War on America continues. This unconventional war was helped by having an inspirational leader like Bin laden, but survives with the same objective to destroy "the great Satan", infidel America in a decentralized and dangerous structure. While America has many enemies at home and throughout the world, we must as a country accept the fact that right now the far greatest threat to our way of life and America as the great hope for humanity comes from Muslim extremists (both external and internal). To assume differently is naive and will be catastrophic for America and Americans like you. Following and in the sub categories will include stories and comments on this subject to give you varying perspectives. We trust it will helpful to your developing recognition of the continuing threat and be a strong voice in helping our leaders create an effective strategy for VICTORY.

U.S.-Backed Forces Push to Capture Islamic State’s Last Territory in Syria

from The Wall Street Journal,
2/11/19:

Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces says 41 positions held by extremist group have been taken, vastly reducing self-declared caliphate’s position

U.S.-backed forces aided by coalition airstrikes have captured more than three dozen positions and destroyed fortifications as they moved to retake the last territory under Islamic State control. “Heavy fighting is going on inside the last village at the moment,” Mustafa Bali, a spokesman for the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, said on Sunday on Twitter. The SDF has taken 41 Islamic State positions as it advanced, he said, while foiling a counterattack earlier in the day. The push to take the village of Baghouz in eastern Syria started over the weekend after more than 20,000 civilians were evacuated from the area over the past 10 days, the SDF said. The civilians fled the shrinking Islamic State pocket, many of them on foot, and were then transferred by the SDF to nearby camps. The dayslong pause in fighting allowed the SDF, which includes local Arabs, to reposition and refit their fighters. While the ground forces are mostly equipped with light weapons, they are backed by airstrikes carried out by the U.S.-led coalition. The SDF didn’t say how long it would take to seize the village, but President Trump had said the task is expected to be accomplished this week.

“It is too early to speculate a specific date as remnants of the enemy still have military and financial capabilities,” said coalition spokesman Col. Sean Ryan. “People are still being persecuted out there by ISIS, so the mission remains the enduring defeat of ISIS,” he added, referring to the group by an acronym. Following a nearly five-year campaign to eliminate the extremist group from its self-proclaimed caliphate, Islamic State controls less than 1% of what it once claimed across large parts of Syria and Iraq. However, the battle to capture the last vestiges of the once-vast Islamic State territory has taken longer than many anticipated when the SDF launched the offensive more than nine months ago. In comparison, it took four months to oust Islamic State from its de facto capital of Raqqa and nine months to do the same in the Iraqi city of Mosul.
