The sky was falling and streaked with blood I heard you calling me, then you disappeared into the dust Up the stairs, into the fire Up the stairs, into the fire I need your kiss, but love and duty called you someplace higher Somewhere up the stairs, into the fire May your strength give us strength May your faith give us faith May your hope give us hope May your love give us love

The sky was falling and streaked with blood
I heard you calling me, then you disappeared into the dust
Up the stairs, into the fire
Up the stairs, into the fire
I need your kiss, but love and duty called you someplace higher
Somewhere up the stairs, into the fire

May your strength give us strength
May your faith give us faith
May your hope give us hope
May your love give us love

Anonymous: What strategy would be best to combat ISIS?

runningrepublican:

I’m going to make this short and sweet because I typed up long response and accidently deleted it.

Reduce their funding. This means convincing European nations to stop paying ransoms, and trying to secure the hostages ISIS has taken. Further move the Iraqi military to secure Iraqi banks. ISIS nabbed nearly $400 million from Mosul banks alone. 

Identify and assassinate ISIS leadership. Not just Al-Baghdadi, but the regional commanders and anyone significant. Do this through any means necessary short of a full scale invasion. That means drones, kill teams, snipers, anything. 

Then terrorize the terrorists. I’m talking shit like Project Eldest Son. Intercept and sabotage weapons shipments, make them doubt their equipment. Do shit like this! Send in kill teams in the night. Conduct PsyOps. Drop fuckin packs of ace of spades (The Death Card) over ISIS camps. Pretty much demoralize their will to fight. Conduct a guerilla war against ISIS. 

A full invasion would lead to another drawn out war where the enemy attempts to wear us down. Let’s flip the tables and wear them down. Be that shit that goes fucking bump in the night. Any religious zealot who says they don’t feel fear hasn’t seen their buddy explode and not know where it came from.

Operation Market Garden - The Netherlands - Sept 1944

One of the largest airborne invasions in history, it was comprised of several allied nations, most notably the United Kingdom, USA, Poland, and Canada.  Several divisions of airborne infantry were involved coming from gliders and parachute.  

The British 1st airborne division was tasked with taking and holding a key bridge in Arnhem.  Of the 10,000 men in the division, only an advanced party of about 800 men made it to the bridge head where they held their position for several days throughout numerous German counter attacks. The rest of the division was pinned down several miles away.  When it was realized that their motorized reinforcements would not be arriving and ammunition ran out, the British units gallantly defended their pockets with bayonet charges and weapons salvaged from the German dead.  The 1st airborne division was virtually destroyed at Arnhem, only about 2,000 of the original 10,00 made it back to allied lines.
