A lot of “We’re kicking ISIS’s butt” stories have suddenly appeared. Accurate or propaganda?

    Countering ISIS in conventional and guerilla warfare in their shithole was never really in doubt.

    It’s their cultural arm in the West that has us worried.

    • Jihad gets the headlines while creeping Sharia makes unnoticed inroads every day. It’s almost like they took lessons from Obama.

    Yeah, a columnist for the Toronto Star was claiming recently that ISIS’s days are numbered. Mere days after the Brussels attack, too.

    If the Star’s pushing a narrative, you know there’s an agenda.

    I remember a video , a while back–of the Russians blowing up 500 oil tanker trucks that were being used to transport oil to Turkey . ISIS captured tanker trucks ,transporting ISIS captured oil to be sold on the so -called Black Market with the money going to ISIS.

    I remember Obama saying that he didn’t destroy these tankers because it would be ‘Bad for the Environment’.

    Looks like OBAMA is in full Propaganda Mode.

    we will not and cannot kick any butt until the progressive sympathizers are named shamed and removed from all our institutions

    I think ISIS will fizzle out in the middle east eventually, they’ve made too many enemies but will continue to thrive in the west for decades.

      Nope. the Caliphate will grow. Watch as ISIS and Al Qaeda do a deal. ISIS is a very loose organisation. It is the Caliphate that counts. They are on their way to Mecca. Last week the Nejd Wilayat was bombing near Riyadh. If the Saudi regime falls they will rule the 1 million Sunnis around the world – including the guys who sells you your milk, the security guy at your work, your taxi driver and the cleaner. Keep an eye on 1st of May (24 Rajab) anniversary of the Battle of Khaybar.

    Yep, I noticed the sudden splurge last week. All from different angles. Picked up by other media and collated as though they are all independent sources to show we are winning. It is interesting how the media uses majority of other media to form its “own” opinion. It started with journalist interviewing other journalist as though they were experts, then 25 year old nobodies from the University of Nowhere to give their opinion then reports on what twitter and facebook said. Like the snake biting its tail.
