Terrorist organizations appear to be ramping up for more attacks against President Donald Trump and the United States.
According to a report from Fars News Agency, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the head of ISIL, threatened in a recent video that U.S. troops in areas such as Libya and Asia will soon face the same fate of soldiers in Syria and Afghanistan.
With a recent uptick in attacks, the U.S. and its allies have been crushing terrorist organizations. So in an effort to keep up morale, al-Baghdadi sent out a video to his militants.
In addition to ramping up rhetoric against the U.S., al-Baghdadi used his video to encourage militants to join his organization to fight the western devil.
“The ISIL terrorists in a war of attrition has targeted 11 countries while conducting 63 military operations in three days and hitting targets in 10 provinces,” he said.
Ironically, the morale problems al-Baghdadi is facing are not totally due to military strikes against his organization.
According to reports, there has been some dissent within the ranks that has created significant problems for ISIL.
Nobody is Safe
And there is another problem with morale that is clearly impacting al-Baghdadi: over the last year, numerous high-ranking members of terrorist organizations have been killed.
Most recently, the son of Osama bin Laden was taken out during a U.S. operation.
There was a time when the top-ranking members of these terror organizations were almost untouchable, but that is no longer the case — and that is clearly bothering al-Baghdadi.
His plea for new members was not just a general recruiting effort, either; al-Baghdadi’s forces were recently significantly decreased due to a successful joint attack by Iraqi and Syrian forces — the same attack that reportedly paralyzed al-Baghdadi.
But try as he might to take down the U.S., things aren’t looking good for Middle Eastern terror organizations like ISIL. The White House simply won’t stand for threats against Americans.
