The precision of the United States military and its allies in seeking out and destroying Islamic State group militants is incomparable and exacted flawlessly. One jihadi recently learned this lesson the hard way.
In an undated video posted to YouTube Friday, an Islamic Stage group fighter was spotted hitching a ride in the back of a pickup truck speeding across the desert. The jihadi and his ride, however, were in the sights of an aircraft watching from above.
The view switched to a closer angle before it panned out again to show the truck pass a few buildings. Just after it cleared the last building along the road a warning shot struck directly in front of the vehicle.

The truck swerved slightly and drove out of the plume of smoke and dust as the view suddenly zeroed in on the militant sitting precariously on the edge of the truck bed. Mere seconds went by before the aircraft’s final shot struck the truck.
Presumed injured or dead, the militant fell from the side of the truck as the vehicle eventually slowed to a halt and burst into flames.
Videos like these only further demonstrate the incredible skill and power of the American military and its allies. Although the violence of war is often difficult to accept, eliminating threats to freedom around the world is an honorable pursuit.
