#NorthCarolina’s #SamanthaJohnston Joins #ISIS/#ISIL Fight

While Obama dry humps the press over if their ISIS/ISIL “strategy” is a successful or not, Samantha Johnston takes matters into her own hands:

Samantha Johnston, 25, a mother of three children, told the Daily Caller she left everything behind to fight the Islamic state.

“I decided to come fight because I felt like it was my duty,” she told the publication.

Pictures of Johnston, a divorced mother of a five year-old and three-year-old twins, carrying a rifle and wearing military fatigues have been circulating on Kurdish news sites. …

“These children here who are homeless, orphaned; mothers and sisters have been raped and sold, fathers who have been killed, they are suffering, and I knew that I couldn’t just sit and do nothing,” Johnston said in an interview with the DC.

Now before you think she is just some house wife who just up and left to fight in a war zone with no training, think again:

According to her military record Johnston served in the US Army from 2008-2011 as a geospatial engineer.

So she is a trained soldier. I hope she is able to put her geospatial engineering* skills to good use in Kurdistan**. If she was just some house wife who had no military training, then I would be saying that she is putting her life in unnecessary danger. Either way, she is a volunteer soldier. She was not forced to do anything. And on top of everything, she is fighting for the good guys. So on those terms, I salute her.

She is divorced and thus her own woman. I have not found on any news site on what happen to her kids, but since they don’t say, they are likely with their father. I get the impression that the father already has custody of the kids, thus a bigger deal is of made of this fact.

“Oh My God! A WOMAN left her kids to go fight ISIS! She must be a bad mother!” -Some Idiot

Yeah, fuck that noise. That argument falls on deaf ears here. Men go off to war all the time and leave their kids behind. A lot don’t return. Are they bad fathers too?

Men and women have been going off to war for a long time now. If women can pass the same training standards as men, then I say “Hooah!” and let them serve in combat.

I want to wish that magnificent woman Samantha Johnston, Godspeed for a safe return. If she stumbles across this post: Love and prayers for you. You and other Americans in the Peshmerga make us all proud. Remember your training (save you it will) and make those ISIS/ISIL assholes die for their cause.

Well, see ya’ later!
