It also wasn't a Republican president who called them a JV team either.

With globalist funding I'm sure along with funding for antifa, black lives matter, illegal caravans etc.
President Trump is doing yeomen's work to keep our country safe.

It would make my day if he never existed. Same for his fan club. His legacy is not a good one. There hasn't been one president in my lifetime that I actually liked, but he takes the cake. Can't turn back time. Did a little fishin' yesterday. Seeing my family catch some nice bass made my day.

This was not correct. It only means a reduction BY 10%.. so down to 90 people.

People use the term like they are saying the forces were wiped out. But that is not correct.
It actually has both meanings, though in todays language it really means large numbers destroyed. The one you reference is considered mostly obsolete now.

verb (used with object), dec·i·mat·ed, dec·i·mat·ing.
1. to destroy a great number or proportion of:
The population was decimated by a plague.
2. to select by lot and kill every tenth person of.
3. Obsolete. to take a tenth of or from.

https://www.dictionary.com/browse/decimated

It's always interesting to me how language changes and develops over time.

I used to really like how descriptive the term was, when I thought it was a factor of 10 reduction. Perhaps I can use it that way in the future then.

Thanks

actually that is a lie. What he said was

Quote:
“Last year, I also pledged that we would work with our allies to extinguish ISIS from the face of the Earth. One year later, I am proud to report that the coalition to defeat ISIS has liberated almost 100 percent of the territory once held by these killers in Iraq and Syria. But there is much more work to be done. We will continue our fight until ISIS is defeated.”

And then he proclaimed victory and said we would IMMEDIATELY leave Syria, to which his advisors, SecDef, and experts in the field said we shouldn't do it so hastily.

So now, we still work to defeat ISIS and lost people by this Presidents inability to reason who actually understand the realities of this world

Yeoman's work for sure.
Globalists are anti American by definition. Those entities will do whatever it takes to bring this country down. They pulled enough strings to get a community organizer elected president who then tried very hard to end our super power status.
Those days are over.

Yeah, now you have a bankruptcy filing perv running the show as our allies drop like flies.

The only thing I see anti-American around here is this Presidents base when he doesn't agree with something.

I'm sure many on this forum are also on the globalist payroll. Just listen to their anti American rhetoric.

Why are these trolls commenting on my posts?
I don't debate trolls. They should look for someone else to play with.

It's a public forum with open discussion. If you don't want a debate. Don't comment. Especially if you the best you've got is what you've contributed to this thread.

They will sing from the rooftops, doesn't make it true.

ISIS as the article and experts say is not keeping it's head down. That's what happens when you comment without reading the source.

On the one hand it bothers me how language shifts over time, but it also very interesting. It makes me think of the time that some politician used the term "******dly" and was taken to task by the masses because they thought he was being racist. When in fact the word means stingy.

Edit to add: ok that's pathetic. The site blocked out the word which has no racial or offensive connotations. I'm going to dodge the system, ban me if you must but the word n-i-g-g-a-r-d-l-y is not something that should be blocked. Here is the Dictionary.com definition without the word of course since it is banned...

reluctant to give or spend; stingy; miserly.
meanly or ungenerously small or scanty:
