Active Duty Hawaii Soldier, Ikaika Erik Kang, Arrested for Trying to Provide Material Support & Training to ISIS
Sgt. Ikaika Erik Kang Arrested in Hawaii, Pledging Material Support to ISIS …
34 year old Sgt. Ikaika Erik Kang, a decorated veteran of two deployments to the Middle East, was arrested by an FBI SWAT team at the Schofield Barracks in Honolulu, Hawaii for trying to provide material support and training to ISIS. According to the criminal complaint, Kang “attempted to provide material support to ISIS by providing both classified military documents, and other sensitive but unclassified military documents, to persons he believed would pass the documents to ISIS.” The FBI said that no classified materials actually ended up in the hands of the terrorist group. Kang swore an oath of loyalty to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi on Saturday, shortly before his arrest. After doing so, Kang allegedly told an undercover agent that he wanted to use his rifle to “kill a bunch of people.”
His father is shocked by the allegations and believes his son may be suffering from PTSD from his tours overseas. According to his military service record, Ikaika Kang was deployed to Iraq in 2010, and served in Afghanistan in 2014.
An active duty Hawaii soldier who was arrested for allegedly trying to provide material support and training to the Islamic State told an undercover federal agent Saturday that he wanted to kill “a bunch of people.
A criminal complaint alleges that Ikaika Erik Kang, 34, was arrested at his Waipahu apartment Saturday, shortly after pledging his loyalty to ISIS and making the threatening statement.
“A probable cause arrest was made in the interest of public safety,” Honolulu FBI Special Agent in Charge Paul D. Delacourt said Monday, after Kang’s first appearance in federal court.
He added, “We believe that Kang was a lone actor and was not associated with others who present a threat to Hawaii.”
One would have thought this would have already been in effect …
The U.S State Department has issued a travel alert for Europe due to the continued threat of terrorist attacks. With the continued terrorist acts throughout Europe, one wonders whether this is the new norm for the old continent?
In the alert, the State Department cited recent incidents in France, Russia, Sweden and the United Kingdom and said Islamic State and al Qaeda “have the ability to plan and execute terrorist attacks in Europe.”
The State Department’s previous travel alert for Europe, issued ahead of the winter holiday season, expired in February. A State Department official said Monday’s alert was not prompted by a specific threat, but rather recognition of the continuing risk of attacks especially ahead of the summer holidays. The alert expires on Sept. 1.
Malls, government facilities, hotels, clubs, restaurants, places of worship, parks, airports and other locations are all possible targets for attacks, the State Department’s alert said.

DEATH BY BACON …
As reported at the Telegraph, three ISIS terrorists were mauled to death by wild boars near the Iraqi city of Kirkuk. The irony and poetic justice of this story certainly cannot be lost. Even the local wildlife has joined in the anti-ISIS coalition in Iraq.
Wild boars mauled three Islamic State (Isil) fighters to death near the Iraqi city of Kirkuk, according to Kurdish fighters.
The jihadists’ bodies were found badly mangled by refugees fleeing through farmland as they tried to get away from Isil territory in al-Rashad, southwest of the city.
Isil fighters responded to the deaths by going on a killing spree of wild boars in the area, said Brigadier Azad Jelal, the deputy head of the Kurdish intelligence service in Kikurk.
“Three fighters from Isil were near the Peshmerga checkpoint in al-Rashad. They met some feral boars and the boars killed the three fighters,” he told The Telegraph.
TERRORISTS, THERE IS A NEW SHERIFF IN TOWN …
The U.S. military dropped the largest non-nuclear bomb in eastern Afghanistan just days after a Green Beret was killed fighting ISIS there.

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION DROPS MOTHER OF ALL BOMBS ON ISIS … NOW THIS IS A WAR ON TERROR!!!
As reported at FOX News, the U.S. military dropped its largest non-nuclear bomb on an ISIS tunnel complex in eastern Afghanistan on Thursday. The MOAB, a 30 feet long and 22,000 pounds Massive Ordinance Air Blast, or otherwise known as the “Mother of all Bombs” was let off the chain and deployed in the Nangarhar Province close to the Afghanistan/Pakistan border. During the presidential campaign, Donald Trump promised to “bomb the sh*t” out of ISIS. Looks like another promise kept and a sign to the world that the United States has a new sheriff in town.
Why does this so remind me of the scene from the movie Iron Man I where Tony Stark is doing Jericho Missile Test. Stark says, “is it better to be feared or respected?” He follows up by saying, “Is it asking to much for both?” Stark goes on to say, “They say, the best weapon is one you never have to fire. I, respectfully disagree. I prefer the one you only have to fire once … For your consideration, The
Jericho Mother of all Bombs!”
Yup, that’s how America and a strong President Does It!
The U.S. military dropped its largest non-nuclear bomb on an ISIS tunnel complex in eastern Afghanistan on Thursday, a U.S. defense official confirmed to Fox News.
The GBU-43B, a 21,000-pound conventional bomb, was deployed in Nangarhar Province close to the Afghanistan/Pakistan border. By comparison, each Tomahawk cruise missile launched at a Syrian military air base last week weighed 1,000 pounds each.
The Massive Ordinance Air Blast was first tested in 2003. (DOD)
The MOAB — Massive Ordnance Air Blast — is also known as the “Mother Of All Bombs.” It was first tested in 2003, but hadn’t been used in combat before Thursday.
Pentagon spokesman Adam Stump said the bomb had been brought to Afghanistan “some time ago” for potential use. The bomb explodes in the air, creating air pressure that can make tunnels and other structures collapse. It can be used at the start of an offensive to soften up the enemy, weakening both its infrastructure and morale.
Just a helpful hint to the liberal media and the LEFT, this bomb was used to more than just eradicate IRIS, it shows just what the US in now willing to do against threats to the United States.
