The U.S Air Force sent a loud and clear message to the remnants of the Islamic State terrorist organization on Tuesday when aircraft dropped 40 tons of laser-guided bombs on an Iraqi island known as a remaining stronghold of the moribund former caliphate.

The dramatic airstrike took place a day before the 18th anniversary of 9/11, sending a message of the nation’s resiliency to any and all terrorists who would seek to repeat such a tragedy on American soil. The commander of Operation Inherent Resolve tweeted video of what seemed like dozens of bomb blasts going off, covering the target in devastation.

The strike targeted Qanus Island, situated on the Tigris River in Northern Iraq. Qanus has been used by ISIS fighters as a stopping point during travel from Syria to Iraq.

F-15 and F-35 fighter jets dropped laser-guided munitions on the target.

American military personnel are currently operating as advisors to the Iraqi military to assist in keeping the remnants of the ISIS caliphate down, as invited guests of the unstable Middle Eastern nation. After the airstrike, Iraqi troops were deployed to Qanus in order to deny any further use of the island to the jihadists, and captured additional film of the airstrike’s effects.

After heavy conflict with the Kurdish Peshmerga, Syrian and Iraqi governments, and the American and Russian militaries, ISIS has become a mere shadow of its former shelf. The former grand caliphate has lost the ability to hold onto any substantial territories, although it still possess a small army of insurgents capable of waging guerrilla warfare.

President Trump has sought to bring American troops home, although there’s a case to be made that airstrike operations in support of Iraqi troops fighting ISIS avoid placing America in unnecessary foreign entanglements. If anything, the devastating strike against ISIS militants on Qanus Island reveals the powerful and unmatched capabilities of the U.S military, and the need for caution in its use.

Biden Shadow Secretary of State Urged Support of Iraq War in 2002

Meet the new boss, the same as the old boss.

Joe Biden is yet to be certified as the President-elect, but that hasn’t stopped from from touting tentative cabinet picks.

Without exception, his cabinet appears to be largely liberal globalists with a lengthy track record of supporting the failed policy proposals of the 2000’s and 1990’s.

Biden’s Secretary of State pick, Antony Blinken, urged the then-Delaware Senator to support the disastrous Iraq War as a policy advisor to Biden in 2002.

Blinken would go on to create an establishment political consulting company that secured cozy lobbying deals with Big Tech and a pharmaceutical giant during Donald Trump’s presidency.

Journalist Glen Greenwald pointed to Blinken as a textbook example of a neoliberal corporate Democrat, infamous for touting a Beltway elite agenda largely disliked by the general public. In similar fashion to neocon warhawk John Bolton, it appears that Blinken’s support for the most disastrous foreign policy mistake in American history isn’t going to prevent him from sauntering into the avenues of power, if he ends up getting confirmed as a President Biden’s Secretary of State.

Blinken would go on to support Barack Obama’s disastrous regime change operation in the 2011 Libyan Civil War, setting up the North African country for a decade of instability and eventually becoming a trafficking hub for exploited migrants seeking to reach Europe. Blinken was a National Security Advisor to the Vice President at the time.

If Biden ends up getting inaugurated, President Donald Trump will become the first US president in decades not to engage the United States in a new foreign conflict in office. (Bill Clinton and Barack Obama instigated US involvement in wars in Yugoslavia and Libya respectively.
