I've Been Thinking:
US fighter jets struck an ISIS camp in Somalia on Friday. This is an important shift in policy.
The United States is now going after ISIS in places like Somalia, a place where ISIS fighters are re-organizing and planning their next stage of development as they leave Syria and Iraq.
The US Strategic command in Africa released the following statement: "U.S. forces will continue to use all authorized and appropriate measures to protect Americans and to disable terrorist threats."
It is possible that the air attack against ISIS was a direct response to the ISIS attack in NYC.
The United States has been upping pressure on ISIS in Syria and Iraq and now they are expanding to other areas.
In May a Navy Seal was killed during an operation against ISIS in Somalia. All total there are about 300 US troops in Somalia functioning as advisors to the Somali army as they try to fight ISIS.
