We need to go into Syria and Iraq and kill as many IS members as we can. You can’t ­negotiate with these people.

This is not a war of choice. They are cash rich and have a plentiful ­supply of arms. If we don’t go after them, they will soon come after us.

The Daily Telegraph reported in 2008 that between 2006-8, Task Force Black was responsible for the deaths of 3,500 insurgents in Iraq. General David Petraeus said at the time about Task Force Black, “They have helped immensely in Baghdad…they have done a phenomenal job.”

    • Zebah was a speck of sand. The United States is a free thinking Nation that responds to cruelty with an open hand. We offer forgiveness at first. Upon refusal, we close the hand and strike. Religion has no real power in the world verse a nation of free thinking people that allow for many idea’s, even those considered sacrilegious to zealots or fanatics.

      • We are-not the ones to whom are cruel it is ISIS and other terror organizations such as Boko Haram they are the ones responsible for atrocities and genocide of Men, Women And Children.

    • This article is to inform the citizens of America, and or the UK, there is nothing here that gives the ISIS any kind of intel, except that the US and UK are coming for them. But then again, they all already know this because they are terrorists. They know their days are numbered.

      • I hope the american military kills every piece of shit member of ISIS. These terrorists think that everyone in the world is scared of them. No one is scared of you, you think you will be martyers, your not shit. Your worthless, your pathetic, and a bunch of losers who prey on innocent women and children because you dont have the balls to face a real man. YOUR DAYS ARE NUMBERED, THE GOOD GUYS ARE COMING FOR YOU. MAY YOU BURN IN HELL AND MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON YOUR SOULS.

    • Really? If telling bad guys the good guys are coming for them is “intel” in your mind, you need to get out more.

  1. This may indeed ‘Cut the Head Off the Snake’, but the only way to defeat Islam is with Christian Apologetics, or at the very least atheism. Moreover, atheists using apologetics against Islam, the Quran, and Muslims, they could finally have the type of impact they have been wanting on Christianity and Christians, but on them, where the true danger lays. Because the Quran itself and of course none of them are supernaturally born again (it takes God given repentance and faith in Jesus Christ, and a supernaturally work of God, alone). May God bless America, and her allies, despite their continued transgressions and sins.

  2. I wonder if President Obama’s statement to the American Legion he made today, Tuesday August 26, 2014 where he stated the U.S. will not put troops on the ground will affect “TASK FORCE BLACK”. I hope it doesn’t as those who will serve in the unit will all be volunteers with the highest military skills to be victorious and give the unit a very high degree of fire power over ISIS. The U.S. had better have air support all the time as I never want to hear there is a death of anyone serving in the “TASK FORCE BLACK”. These warriors are the best of the best and everyone of them had better come home alive and in one piece. All the members of ISIS have to be killed and no prisoners should be taken. The members of ISIS all want to die. Now it’s up to the best of the best warriors to grant them their wish to die.

    • I’m Muslim and even though I mostly disagree with Western intervention in Iraq and Afghanistan and the chaos and destruction that ensued, on this occasion I must agree. Isis must be destroyed by any means necessary.
