    Another day, another ISIS attack

    "I know more about ISIS than the generals do," declared Donald Trump on November 13, 2015. "ISIS is defeated," declared Donald Trump on October 16, 2018. "We have won against ISIS. We have beaten them and we've beaten them badly," declared Donald Trump on December 19, 2018.

    Really?

    Two Americans were among the dead in last month's attack. For those of you who speak Somali: Argaggixisadu way waalan yihiin. Dunida oo dhan waa waalan!

    James Kiras, author and professor of warfare tactics at Maxwell Air Force Base, explains the motivations for young men to become suicide bombers. We tend to think of them as crazy and psychotic – but they aren't.

    Yesterday a suicide bomber attacked a wedding party in Afghanistan. If you rank all the terrorist attacks since 1979 by the number of fatalities, this one is only #43 on the list:

    ISIS members continue to carry out bombings, suicide attacks, kidnappings, ambushes and assassinations. And Donald Trump says they're defeated? He was obviously giving fake news.

    ISIS is regaining strength in Iraq and Syria

    In Trumpworld, ISIS has been "defeated" and "beaten badly." Thus decreed Emperor Trump. Now let's look at the real world:
