Army Sgt.-Major gives ISIS fighters a blunt warning 'surrender or die'

Fox News:
The Pentagon's senior enlisted member has drawn the line against ISIS: "surrender or die!"

In a blunt warning to the remaining ISIS fighters, Army Command Sgt. Maj. John Wayne Troxell said the shrinking band of militants could either surrender to the U.S. military or face death.

“ISIS needs to understand that the Joint Force is on orders to annihilate them,” he wrote in a forceful message on Facebook. “So they have two options, should they decide to come up against the United States, our allies and partners: surrender or die!”

Troxell said the U.S.-led military coalition would provide them safety in the form of a detainee cell, food, a bed and due process if they give themselves up.

“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,” he continued. “Regardless, they cannot win, so they need to choose what it’s going to be.”

The message is meant to spur the remaining ISIS fighters to surrender or face the consequences.

Here is a photo of an entrenching tool in the hoe configuration:
 
As I mentioned in a recent post about a Brit special ops soldier who ran out of ammo used a shovel to decapitate a Taliban fighter in Afghanistan.  In Vietnam, a Marine sergeant won a Medal of Honor by defending his position and wounded comrades by killing attackers with his entrenching tool in this configuration.
