The Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, released a video on Monday showing images of American soldiers in Iraq being killed by snipers as well as U.S. armored personnel vehicles being attacked and destroyed.
The video, which begins with a picture of the American flag versus the ISIS flag, along with the caption, “We will drown all of you in blood,” is in response to recent U.S. airstrikes on ISIS positions in Iraq. It is a chilling reminder of the loss of American lives in the middle east.
The Obama administration decided to carry out targeted airstrikes on ISIS positions in order to boost the Kurdish fighters efforts to contain the Islamist extremists. No doubt the administration is aware that attacking ISIS will likely have consequences in the form of American casualties of one description or another.
The Inquisitr already reported on Sunday that five U.S. intelligence officials revealed that ISIS is planning a terror attack on mainland America,
“According to intelligence reports on Saturday, ISIS is not just going to let the U.S. strikes against them go unnoticed or unpunished. Five intelligence officials told Bloomberg News some worrying things about ISIS and its strategy. They alleged that the fanatical Islamist terrorist group is planning to carry out major terror attacks against targets in the United States, and possibly in Europe.”
As well as the U.S. strikes on ISIS in Iraq, Syrian president Bashar Assad has significantly stepped up his campaign against militants in Syria, carrying out dozens of airstrikes against the group’s headquarters in the past two days.
On Monday, ISIS was closing in on the last government-held army base in the northeastern Raqqa province, the Tabqa air base. That prompted Assad to carry out at least 16 airstrikes in the area in an attempt to halt their advance.
The latest ISIS propaganda video is a chilling reminder of the devastation caused by the 9/11 attacks in New York. It makes Americans wonder if their city will be next in ISIS’s plan to “take over the White House,” as reported recently.
