Under the weak leadership of Barack Obama and Joe Biden, ISIS exploded in numbers and appeared to be taking hold of several countries in the Middle East.
Women and young children were especially vulnerable to the horrors of ISIS. The rag-tag, Islamic extremist group ravaged through villages, raping women and children, taking them as prisoners along the way, and auctioning them off as sex slaves.
Coptic Christian men were rounded up and decapitated.
A shocking video was released by ISIS in April 2015, only one year before President Trump was elected. The video showed the beheading of at least 30 Christians in Libya.
At least 16 men, described by the Islamic State as the ‘followers of the cross from the enemy Ethiopian Church’, were lined up and shot in a desert area while 12 others were filmed being forced to walk down a beach before being beheaded.
***WARNING***Video is GRAPHIC!
The video was a follow-up to another video in February that showed the beheading of a group of 21 Coptic Christians on the beach in Libya.
The video raised fears that ISIS was consolidating its presence on the ‘doorstep of Europe’, as Libya is only a few hundred miles from the coast of Italy.
On March 23, 2019, Syria de Syria declared victory over Islamic State. Even NBC News reported about how the U.S.-backed fighters marked the apparent end of a years-long global campaign to break the extremist group’s hold on the region.
The capture of ISIS’ last, tiny enclave in the country’s south brings its self-proclaimed caliphate to territorial defeat.
The all-female YPR (Women’s Defense Unit) who were actively engaged in the fight against ISIS, shared a powerful video of three female volunteer freedom fighters replacing the ISIS flag with their flag at the top of a former, bombed-out ISIS stronghold.

In less than two years after President Trump took office, the powerful world leader declared victory over ISIS, as the Middle East and the rest of the world sighed a breath of relief.

Now, in less than 7 months since Joe Biden began occupying the White House, US warships are flying their first combat mission off a foreign aircraft carrier since WWII, as part of America’s renewed fight against ISIS, the evil terror group that was decimated under President Trump.
Islamic terror expert Robert Spencer writes:
Hmmm, what has changed in the last few months to give the Islamic State (ISIS) the idea that it was time to step up activities? Anyone have any idea? Maybe…a change in the government of an important country, with a strong leader replaced by a weak one? Jihadis see the world in terms of strength and weakness, so it would be foolish to assume that such a change wouldn’t mean anything to them.
From a March 19, 2021 article in The Sun – ISIS State has been running online virtual training camps amid fears that it is rapidly growing in strength.
The resurge of the jihadi maniacs comes as the government warns terrorists are poised to launch a successful chemical, biological or nuclear attack on Britain in the next nine years.
Security experts fear the group is mounting a resurgence with an estimated 10,000 fighters ramping up attacks in Syria and Iraq with the RAF now attacking targets.
ISIS successfully used social media to persuade thousands of jihadists to fight with the group in Syria and Iraq to establish a rogue state governed by hardline Islamic sharia law.
It was, however, effectively defeated March 2019 after losing 95 per cent of its territory in a year due to a military surge by Kurdish militia forces backed by the UK and US.
But it can be revealed that the bloodthirsty terrorists are once again recruiting and distributing anti-western propaganda but using encrypted chat apps to work around bans by tech giants Twitter and Facebook.
The official ISIS jihad training group included a complete 216-page illustrated terror manual for “the novice jihad fighter”.
The US, whose southern border is essentially wide open to ISIS or other potential terror groups, is now joining forces with the UK to fight the resurgence of the evil terror group overseas.
According to the Daily Mail – US warplanes have flown their first combat missions off a foreign aircraft carrier since World War II, as Marine Corps fighter jets launched from the UK’s HMS Queen Elizabeth for operations against
Ten F-35Bs from the Marines’ Fighter Attack Squadron 211 are aboard the Royal Navy’s new flagship, joining eight RAF F35B jets from the Royal Air Force’s 617 Squadron.
It is the most 35Bs ever deployed together on one ship, and air operations over the Middle East began on June 18.
US planes haven’t flown combat missions from a foreign warship since 1943 when they took off from Britain’s HMS Victorious in the South Pacific during World War II.
The combat missions against ISIS are part of the United States’ Operation Inherent Resolve, as well as the UK’s Operation Shader. Military officials did not specify the location or target of the combat strikes.
The state-of-the-art F35B stealth aircraft – which have the ability to land vertically – are being used over Iraq to look for other aircraft or unmanned drones and support troops on the ground.
The jets are also being used in anti-ISIS operations to carry out surveillance with its sophisticated sensor and radar systems.
Operation Inherent Resolve was established in October 2014 to formalize military efforts against the rising threat of ISIS.
The HMS Queen Elizabeth and its support ships, which include the US destroyer USS The Sullivans, departed the UK in May for its first operational deployment in a move that was set to outrage Russia and China.
British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace also released a statement, saying, ‘The ability to operate from the sea with the most advanced fighter jets ever created is a significant moment in our history, offering reassurance to our allies and demonstrating the UK’s formidable air power to our adversaries.’
Royal Navy Commodore Steve Moorhouse said the UK is carrying out the majority of the missions to wipe out the remnants of ISIS in Iraq while US forces focus on withdrawing from Afghanistan after two decades.
