More than two years prior, at that point applicant Donald Trump made a guarantee to the American individuals that he would “bomb the sh*t” out of ISIS.
Presently, eight months into his administration, he’s doing recently that. With the help of Defense Secretary James “Frantic Dog” Mattis, the organization has successfully released hellfire upon ISIS, dropping twice the same number of bombs on ISIS than previous President Obama’s last entire year in office.
On Tuesday, Military.com revealed that the Air Force — in August alone — discharged more than 500 weapons in Afghanistan against Taliban, al-Qaida, and ISIS, which is the most in a solitary month since 2012.
According to the latest airpower summary, fighter jets and drones have dropped more than 2,000 bombs this year — already almost doubling the number of weapons released during all of last year.
Military.com noted the increase comes as President Donald Trump, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Pentagon top brass met to talk about a new strategy for Afghanistan.
“We’re in the process of doing the detailed planning [for] that strategy,” Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein told Military.com last week.
Trump on Aug. 22 announced the U.S. will send more troops to Afghanistan to step up the fight against the Taliban and the offshoot of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria called Islamic State-Khorasan province, or IS-K.
The president would not cite specific numbers, but defense officials have said 3,500 to 5,000 additional troops are likely as part of the plan.
