    The U.S. military's highest-ranking enlisted officer (NCO) has given the Islamic State militant group an ultimatum on social media, threatening to not only bomb but bludgeon the jihadis to death if they didn't give up.

    Army Command Sargeant Major John Troxell, who served as third senior enlisted advisor to the military's joint chiefs of staff, shared the warning on Facebook and Twitter, where it was accompanied by the hashtags #DefeatDaesh, referring to the Arabic-language acronym for ISIS and #ISIS_SurrenderOrDie, the only two choices he said the U.S. military would give the militants.

    "ISIS needs to understand that the Joint Force is on orders to annihilate them. So, they have two options should they decide to come up against the United States, our allies and partners: surrender or die!" Troxell wrote on Facebook."If they surrender, we will safeguard them to their detainee facility cell, provide them chow, a cot and due process.

    "HOWEVER, if they choose not to surrender, 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," he added. "Regardless, they cannot win, so they need to choose how it's going to be."

    Why not if it gets the point across?

    You think it will have any effect on individuals who are obsessed with martyrdom? Fanatics who are willing to strap explosive vests to their bodies probably will not be deterred by a threatening tweet.

    Words were not meant for ISIS.

    Libs so easy to trigger these days. Who would have ever thought tough talk and clearly defining intent to kill or capture radical terrorists would cause so much grief among you libs.

    You're right, NOT. Maybe you need to see the ISIS Jihadist burn more journalists alive in a cage...

    ...psych-ops? They actually blare heavy metal too over loud speakers to make the enemy give up... been that was for quite some time now.

    Not all of them are martyrs. Well maybe they were at one time but might be rethinking their position. If not, look out for that swinging entrenching tool. Believe me, if you are an ISIS soldier and you are following this guy on twitter, you are probably looking for the best possible exit strategy

    I don't understand the premise of your comment. He posted it on Facebook apparently. So who's the "we" in, "We're letting.."?

    The country/military. I'm very surprised that the Army would tolerate that. It tends to play a lot closer to the vest.

    To hell with tolerance.

    Let’s have a military takeover so they can play it closer to the vest. (Whatever that means?)

    Oh. Well I don't know what the Army policies regarding social media are, but as long as he didn't give away any actual operational info, I doubt he'll be in trouble for posting aggressively anti-ISIS remarks. I thought your comment implied that he should've been prevented in some way from posting it in the first place. Don't know how that would work.

    The lefties want our military leaders as PC acting as them when it comes to these terrorists. Obama was actually purging top Generals etc. that weren't PC enough for his lefty agenda.
