The Islamic State is one of the most barbaric terrorist organizations the world has ever seen. It has committed monumentally horrifying acts, attempted to commit genocide against Christians in the Middle East, engages in sex-slavery and trafficking, and brutally murders everyone who refuses to submit to its authority. The end of ISIS can’t come soon enough.

With reports that the terrorist group is on its last legs and is being pummeled into submission, there may be some final acts of desperation by ISIS fighters. But the Pentagon’s top enlisted officer has a warning for those unwilling to surrender: they will be beaten to death… with shovels.

A Warning to ISIS: ‘Surrender or Die!’

The U.S.-led anti-ISIS coalition is on the cusp of fully annihilating the terror entity. This means that ISIS members will only have two options moving forward: “surrender or die!”

Those are the words from Army Sgt. Maj. John Wayne Troxell, a senior enlisted adviser to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Writing on Facebook Tuesday, Troxell stated that ISIS must comprehend that the coalition forces are following “orders to annihilate them.” Should they face U.S. or ally soldiers, then they will need to decide if they will merely concede defeat and give up peacefully, or face the consequences.

He wrote:

If they surrender, we will safeguard them to their detainee facility cell, provide them chow, a cot and due process.

HOWEVER, if they choose not to surrender, then we will kill them with extreme prejudice, whether that be through security force assistance, by dropping bombs on them, shooting them in the face, or beating them to death with our entrenching tools.

In the end, according to Troxell, ISIS fighters “cannot win,” which means they “need to choose how it’s going to be.”

Troxell has been serving as an enlisted senior adviser since December 2015. He advises senior Army leaders on a wide range of issues, such as the health of the armed forces, joined total force integration, and joint development for enlisted personnel.

The Death of ISIS

With the help of U.S. and coalition forces, ISIS has lost a majority of the territory that it previously controlled in Iraq and Syria. The U.S. military will maintain its mission in Syria until the area is fully stabilized.

U.S. Army officials announced on Wednesday the deployment of 500 soldiers from its 10th Mountain Division at Fort Drum to Iraq this spring to fight ISIS.

Maj. Gen. Walter E. Piatt, the commanding general for Fort Drum and the 10th Mountain Division, stated:

We are honored to be part of the global coalition in support of the Iraqi Security Forces as they consolidate gains from their successful efforts to achieve a lasting defeat of ISIS in Iraq.

This comes after Douglas Silliman, U.S. Ambassador to Iraq, said on Wednesday that the American military presence will be cut down gradually in the coming months.

Currently, the stated mission is to train Iraqi soldiers, offer humanitarian aid to refugees, and defend control of lands against ISIS militants.

The Pentagon oversees approximately 8,000 troops serving in Iraq.
