Secretary of Defense James Mattis said in an interview airing today that nothing keeps him up at night. He says that he keeps others up at night. Hahaha. That’s why we love James Mattis. This man is an American hero. Watch this crazy video below.
Then James Mattis weighed in again on the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. He said that we have shifted to “annihilation tactics.”
“Our strategy right now is to accelerate the campaign against ISIS. It is a threat to all civilized nations,” Mattis said.
Mattis said that ISIS will have no retreat.
We have already shifted from attrition tactics where we shove them from one position to another in Iraq and Syria, to annihilation tactics where we surround them,” Mattis said. “Our intention is that the foreign fighters do not survive the fight to return home to North Africa, to Europe, to America, to Asia, to Africa. We’re not going to allow them to do so. We’re going to stop them there and take apart the caliphate.”
“You see that right now, for example, in western Mosul that is surrounded and the Iraqi– security forces are moving against them,” he said. “Tal Afar is now surrounded. We have got efforts underway right now to surround their self-declared caliphate capital of Raqqa. That surrounding operation is going on. And once surrounded, then we’ll go in and clean them out.”
