So folks, right off the bat I’ll preface this report with some of what Nick Powers strong opinions are here before I get to the rest of the story from his television appearance earlier this morning:
Following the filmed beheading of New Hampshire journalist James Foley by Islamic extremists earlier this week, the public protests against the Islamic State – or ISIS – terror network have grown throughout the United States and beyond.
The Vatican confirmed that Pope Francis called Foley’s parents personally following the death of the 40-year-old who disappeared from Syria nearly two years ago.
Perhaps the most galvanizing statement on the tragic murder, however, is attributed to Marine veteran Nick Powers, who posted the following on Facebook.
To all you ignorant Islamic extremist f—ks. As I sit here watching you execute women, children and men in the Middle East I chuckle. Why do I chuckle you may ask? Well let me explain something to you idiots who think you are so tough. You are scaring a population that doesn’t know how to fight, you’re bullying the weak.
What did Saddam’s troops do when we came to town? Surrendered, twice… All your threats of coming to America and raising your flag over the White House amuse me more than you could ever understand. In 2012 there were 21.2 million veterans in the United States. Do you understand what that means? That means there are millions of pissed off veterans who have been dealing with years of abuse from their government stabbing them in the backs and having to watch friends die because you Islamic idiots can’t seem to act like human beings and stop terrorism and violence.
It’s one thing to take over an Islamic state, pretty sure we plowed through Fallujah in 4 days, do you really think you stand a chance on US soil? Do you really think it would be smart to poke that bear? Remember we are armed in the US and I can promise you that the Geneva Conventions will not apply to you. You attack us and there is no mercy. The ball is in your court Islam, we are more than ready to send you to your “prophet” Mohamed….
Listen to what he had to say from early this morning via this report:
Following the beheading of American journalist James Foley by ISIS, one Marine is issuing his own warning to the terror group.
Iraq war veteran Nick Powers wrote on Facebook, “Remember we are armed in the U.S. and I can promise you this … You attack us and there will be no mercy.”
ISIS claims that the killing was in retaliation against U.S. airstrikes against the militants in Iraq. At a press conference on Thursday, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel called ISIS “beyond anything we’ve seen.” He said the U.S. is “looking at all options.”
Army General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, added that the group can be contained but cannot be defeated without attacking it in Syria.
This morning on Fox and Friends, Powers said there is no way to defeat ISIS without boots on the ground.
“You can bomb whatever you want, but without boots on the ground, you’re never going to fully accomplish any kind of mission militarily.”
Please listen to what he has to say below:
Do you agree with Powers and his strong opinions or not? – If so, why? If not…why not?
