What Happens When an ISIS Suicide Truck Hits a Speed Bump?

A recently-released video captures an ISIS truck filled with explosives giving chase to two Iraqi Humvee’s in an effort to blow one or both to kingdom come.  The terrain is rough and bumpy and at the speed they are traveling, it becomes a matter of time before nature takes its course and the truckload of suicide ISIS fighters sends the fighters skyward towards Allah and their 72 virgins.

According to the Conservative Tribune:

Humvee’s are built to travel across rough terrain, which allowed the Iraqi’s to gain a big lead ahead of the Islamic State group fighters.

After trying to travel down the same rocky path as the Humvee’s, the explosives prematurely detonate after the truck hit a massive speed bump, killing the fighters before they even reach their target.

Oddly enough, the video was released by ISIS and was used as propaganda to show what the group is doing to other groups in the region.

There is a reason why ISIS suicide attacks so often fail and it’s for the same reason that the Japanese kamikaze program failed.  That is because the ones who are really good at it never make all the way through basic training.

Earlier this year, ISIS fighters were preparing for battle, when they accidentally blew themselves up, the Daily Caller reported:

Inexperienced Islamic State fighters in the city of Mosul are accidentally blowing themselves up in preparation for combat, an Army spokesman told reporters Thursday.

Army Col. Ryan Dillon, a spokesman for Operation Inherent Resolve, said there is serious discord among the terror group’s last “few hundred” fighters left in Mosul. “We have reflections of serious internal conflict within ISIS’s ranks, leaders have abandoned fighters to die, local fighters are being left to rot where they fall while foreign fighters receive proper burials, and remaining inexperienced fighters making rookie mistakes blow themselves up accidentally in preparation for combat,” he told reporters at a Pentagon briefing.

Martin Walsh added:

While the group appears to be only capable of blowing themselves up, President Donald Trump’s bold actions and orders for the U.S. military have utterly crushed the terrorist group and its “caliphate” in Iraq and Syria.

Defense Secretary James Mattis said nearly a third of the gains ISIS made beginning in 2014 under former President Barack Obama’s leadership have been taken back by the U.S. and its allies thus far.

Ahead of their eventual defeat, ISIS has been forced to revert back to their guerrilla warfare tactics of suicide bombings and lone wolf attacks.

ISIS has lost control of roughly 27,000 square miles, nearly 8,000 of which has been taken back under the Trump administration in recent months.

The only downside I see to ISIS blowing themselves up is that Gen “Mad Dog” Mattis feels like he was deprived of the honor.  But at least they are dead and in the long run, ISIS is weakened by whatever damage we cause to fall about his head by the sheriff.
