The second week of the Trump presidency will soon begin. Rumors indicate that President Trump will issue a presidential directive to order Secretary of Defense James Mattis to issue a new and better plan to combat the Islamic State that will hit them harder than ever.
Some of those strategies include an increased level of American artillery in Syria and Army attack helicopters to hit Raqqa. Raqqa is the major stronghold of the Islamic State in Syria. The Islamic state declared Raqqa to be its Capitol previously. The rumors also indicate Mattis will have thirty days to create the plan.
President Trump had a scheduled meeting at the Pentagon on Friday. It was his first scheduled meeting with them since he was sworn in. Mattis is a retired Marine general who served for over forty years. He has decades upon decades of combat experience. On his first day of the job he allegedly bombed the Islamic State thirty-one different times. Clearly, he won’t have an issue following Trump’s directive.
Throughout the duration of the presidential election, Trump insisted he had a harsh and confidential plan to defeat the Islamic State. However, he also noted he would give top military officials one month to come up with alternative options.
The media has reported that the White House is also considering a review of American nuclear posture. It would retain the three legs of the nuclear arsenal with weapons and firearms aboard bombers and submarines and in underground missile silos. As well, it would look to maintain the best anti-missile system.
This would all help to bring down the Islamic State. All the while putting increased pressure on Raqqa and Mosul. The President has made lofty promises so he has a long way to go and some hard decisions to make.
“We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones – and unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the Earth.”
It has become abundantly clear the Trump administration is taking no prisoners. They will hit radical Islamic terrorists harder and faster than ever. Peace will ultimately prevail in the end and no terrorist will forget who Mattis and Trump are.
