On The Front Lines Fighting ISIS With Christian Fighters

BY Herschel Smith

Andrew Doran:

For their part, those fighting for ISIS — Saudis, Chechens, Afghans, French, Turks, Pakistanis, Germans, and Americans, among others — are under no illusions that they are in the last days of the geographical caliphate. The coalition hope was to kill every member of ISIS in Mosul and Raqqa, to prevent them from returning to their countries to carry out attacks. It is certain, however, that many have already escaped. One sees many bearded young men among the caravans of refugees of fleeing Mosul and Raqqa.

The ISIS fighters who don’t blow themselves up in suicide bombings may fight to the death. Or they may try to return to their countries of origin to carry out lone-wolf — or perhaps coordinated — attacks. The latter would be in keeping with the spirit of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the true founder and visionary of ISIS. Zarqawi carried out such attacks with lethal efficiency in Iraq — against defenseless civilians in public places, including houses of worship and even elementary schools. These forms of terrorism have already become somewhat commonplace in the Western world and are certain to increase in the months and years ahead.

[ … ]

The next morning, ISIS breaks through and attacks an Arab position to the northeast, killing four. A suicide blast rocks a Syriac unit atop a roof overlooking a vast urban no-man’s-land. From their rooftop position, Christian and “Paul,” another American volunteer, swing into action with two soldiers, one Arab and the other Syriac. The exchanges last perhaps 30 minutes. Christian and Paul lay down machine-gun and small-arms fire, bringing the morning’s fight to a conclusion with Christian firing a rocket-propelled grenade into an ISIS position. “In the Marine Corps, we call that fire superiority,” says Christian. “It works.”

“We make progress during the day, but there are snipers,” says “Kino,”one of the Syriac commanders and its spokesman. “We have to be careful also of IEDs and snipers. They also use drones.” ISIS drones are a daily occurrence. “I think each drone carries four bombs. It’s a very effective weapon for them. Once they’re overhead, no one can move.” The drone improvisation is unexpected and probably has been effective in slowing the SDF advance. ISIS appears to have no shortage of drones. One of them, a reconnaissance drone, was made in Simi Valley, Calif. “I’m guessing they got this from the Iraqi army,” says Paul, who serves as both soldier and medic.

“Christian” and “Paul.”  I like their choice of Nom de Guerre.  And I respect what they are doing.  These are brave men, and the article is deadly accurate.  Islamic violence is going to increase, not decrease, and it’s going to do so not only in Eurasia, the U.K. and across the Middle and Far East, but in CONUS as well.  Count on it.

Are you ready?  Have you “gunned up” yet?  Do you avoid crowds?  Do you stay in good physical shape?  Have you stocked your gun safe with ammunition yet?  If you are a sleepy, lazy Christian who expects to be pulled out of the festivities with the ridiculous “rapture,” what are you going to do when young Muslims rape your daughter because she isn’t wearing a hijab?  You realize that by believing in the rapture you believe that God is only going to save American Christians, don’t you?

How arrogant is that?  God allowed His people to suffer and become slaughtered in Mesopotamia at the hands of ISIS, in Egypt at the hands of Islamists (i.e., the Coptic Christians), in Turkey at the hands of the Islamists (i.e., the Armenians) and on and on we could go.  But God is going to spare you because American Christians are special.  Or something.

I have a right to say these things to you, if you are a Christian, since I am one of you, except that I don’t believe in your rapture.  And you have a responsibility to act when you can, and that “when you can” is right now, not later.  As for ISIS getting their drones from the Iraqi Army, perhaps, but remember that “patriot” John McCain demanded that we fund them with weapons, and so we did.  And remember that McCain and Lindsey Graham have oil plays in North Africa.

The “them” I’m talking about is addressed in the article at NRO.

“The U.S. was going to arm us [the Syriac Military Council] in 2015, but they went with the FSA instead,” says one of the Syriac commanders. That the Free Syrian Army turned out to be little more than Islamist militias, and that the U.S.-government program was nothing short of disastrous, is now well documented. The Syrian Democratic Forces, especially units like the Syriac Military Council, are much closer to what the FSA duped gullible Westerners into thinking that it was.

The Westerners weren’t gullible, and no one was duped.  George Soros, DynCorp, the Obama administration and McCain always intended to arm ISIS.  The U.S. created ISIS by intent, not by accident.

Similarly, population replacement is the order of the day in the U.K., and the LEOs have all been brainwashed and coopted into the project.  If you don’t believe this is headed to America, you are asleep at the wheel careening for the cliff.

    Yep, between the raptureists not doing anything and the boomers wrecking every future generation with debt America is ruined. Because of the TV brainwashing and high fructose corn syrup you can’t even talk to them. They are the zombies who look at you as though you have two heads when you mention the real and factual history of islam and the west.

    Being an anti-war Christian is an odd thing in America. Now, being anti-war doesn’t mean anti self defense or being against the defense of our nation. Whatever is happening in the middle east has zero to do with the defense of America. It’s war for apparently, fun and profit. Of course the people in the battles and having their countries wrecked aren’t having fun but it’s all a big game for the NWO. Their glorious Tower of Babel awaits us all. Hang them all from neck until dead.

    The post is absolutely right. Those that will not defend themselves and their families will die or become slaves. Jesus has already save the christians, it is time to live like it.

    Something else to consider, “plan like you are going to live to 120 and live like Jesus is coming today.

    Good analysis as usual, Herschel. It may be too late for Brits to uncuck England – but it’s not yet too late here, IMO. The Trump presidency is a symptom of a fed up citizenry. If the deep state (((conservatives))) continue their surrender politics it may become a real s**t storm.

    Now that Rino McCuck has cancer (which he’s of course having treated at Mayo Clinic – even though he claims the VA system is fixed) perhaps even Syria has a chance.
