Patton in Africa, Ridgeway in Korea, Petraeus in Iraq — the right leaders at the right time.
The Islamic State hit Egypt in the Sinai with a series of attacks on army and police checkpoints. Some 70 militants struck, led by suicide bombers, killing 64 soldiers. The Egyptians launched Apaches and F-16s in response. The attacks came a day after President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi pledged to step up the battle against Islamic militants and two days after the state prosecutor general was assassinated in Cairo. Sisi promised to dispense justice for the assassination and possibly expedite the execution of jailed Muslim Brotherhood leaders, “if there is a death sentence, it will be carried out.”
An Israeli official stated that, “this incident is a game-change.”
Al Sisi has condemned Islamism; launched air attacks against IS in Libya after they beheaded kidnapped Egyptian Coptic Christians...proving he is fighting for ALL Egyptians; he joined the anti-Houthi alliance in Yemen; outlawed the Muslim Brotherhood as terrorists; called for a Arab Force to take on IS.
The Islamic State is not facing the linguini spined, turn and run, Iraqis or the leaderless Syrians. The Egyptians are proud, trained, and professional and their leader is a LEADER.
“We will stand in the face of the whole world, and fight the whole world.”
“iGuerilla should be the first book packed in the duffel bag for those carrying the fight to the enemy.”
