Former United States President George W. Bush once made a reference to terrorist groups using planes that they could not make to attack structures which they could not build. The same is true all of these later, though instead of Al Queda we are also talking ISIS and many others.Since ISIS can only get most converts by threatening to kill them if they don’t, it is no surprise that their “movement” does not have a lot of money coming in that isn’t plundered.
Today news cycle finds the loathsome sharia group again attempting to use a vehicle as a weapon. However, Uncle Sam rolled up his sleeves and showed up with an M1 Abrams tank. When “tank vs. car’ transpired (video below, attack shortly past the 10:30-minute mark), video footage shows that ISIS was utterly humiliated and suffered a terrible defeat.
According to the Federation of American Scientists, the M1 Abrams is engineered towards “engaging the enemy in any weather, day or night on the multi-dimensional, non-linear battlefield using its firepower, maneuver, and shock effect.” It certainly proved to be quite “engaging” in Yarmouk district in Mosul as ISIS was “fighting to the death,” according to The Sydney Morning Herald.
“These could come as just vehicles that are loaded (with explosives), but more likely now in what you would hear termed ‘Mad Max vehicles’ — lots of steel around them, small slits for the drivers to see and they’re predominantly suicide attacks,” were the thoughts from Australian Defence Force Chief Mark Binskin as he spoke recently to The U.K. Daily Telegraph.
While seeing loss of life is never cause for celebrations (lest we end up like the enemy), watching the video of the U.S. bring down the hammer of justice upon the child killers, rapists, and cut throats in action is something that more people need to see. Maybe that way, would-be warriors for Allah may think twice before putting some firecrackers into a car and trying to intimidate an M1 Abrams tank.
