How’s this for a contrast: Instead of trying to defeat Islamic terrorism by offering terrorists jobs, the Trump administration is determined to fight Islamic State group militants on the field until they either surrender or die, no exceptions.
“ISIS needs to understand that the Joint Force is on orders to annihilate them,” Army Sgt. Maj. John Wayne Troxell, the senior enlisted adviser to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, explained in a power-packed Facebook post this week.
“So, they have two options should they decide to come up against the United States, our allies and partners: Surrender or die!” he added.
The “Joint Force” he cited refers to the Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve, a U.S.-led coalition of 30 countries whose stated goal is exactly as Troxell described it: To degrade and destroy” the Islamic State group, according to The Hill.
Troxell added that if the militants surrender, “we will safeguard them to their detainee facility cell, provide them chow, a cot and due process.”
But if they choose to continue fighting, “then we will kill them with extreme prejudice, whether that be through security force assistance, by dropping bombs on them, shooting them in the face, or beating them to death with our entrenching tools.”

Troxell’s remarkable post symbolizes the re-emergence of American power after eight years of fecklessness and cowardice under the “leadership” of former President Barack Obama, whose administration once touted a jobs program as the real solution to Islamic terrorism.
“(W)e cannot win this war by killing them,” said then-State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf during an appearance on MSNBC in 2015, as reported by the Washington Examiner. “We cannot kill our way out of this war.”
“We need in the medium- to longer term to go after the root causes that lead people to join these groups, whether it’s lack of opportunity for jobs,” she added, totally oblivious to how ignorant she sounded.
She was serious, too. Fortunately for anyone interested in seeing the Islamic State group actually be defeated, neither President Donald Trump nor Defense Secretary James “Mad Dog” Mattis nor Troxell believe such patent nonsense.
“It may be by dropping bombs on them, it may be by shooting them in the face and it even might be beating them to death with your entrenching tool, but we are going to beat this enemy!” Troxell declared in a speech last month during a United Services Organization holiday tour:

Mattis echoed a similar sentiment during a media briefing last spring, declaring, “We’re there (in the Middle East) to drive ISIS to its knees.”
As for the president, he’s made it clear countless countless times that he plans to crush the Islamic State group and its would-be “caliphate” in Iraq and Syria.
And wouldn’t you know it, under Mattis, Trump and Troxell’s leadership, an estimated 95 percent of the terror group has been destroyed.
Memo to Democrats: This is how it’s done.
