Excerpted from Shoebat: The king who is a trained jet fighter pilot himself is no Obama and monitoring ISIS’s twitter communications also reveal that ISIS is extremely concerned and is on the move anticipating Jordan’s reaction. ISIS leaders ordered to move all captive prisoners to different locations. This would mean the possibility of a ground attack. ISIS also ordered all centers to be relocated including all its headquarters in the Syrian region.
Translation: “General order from ISIS to clear all headquarters and transfer all prisoners in Raqqa city”
The King met with his chiefs of security immediately after ISIS burned their POW and discussed with them all the options available to respond, which they promised to be seismic. Jordan promised that they would step up the efforts with the international coalition upon his return from Washington Wednesday.
The official spokesman and Minister of State for Media Affairs Mohammad Momani stated that the Jordanian response will be played all over the world and “will be announced at the appropriate time on the security and military levels.”
What Jordan is promising is different than the regular launching of air strikes which went on during the past few hours. The king during a meeting in the General Command by senior civilian and military officials vowed that “the blood of the martyr hero pilot Muaz Kasasbeh will not go in vain, and that Jordan and its army will pay back what its son suffered”.
King Abdullah II added: “we are fighting this war to protect our faith and our values and our humanitarian principles, and the fight for it will be relentless, we will be on the lookout for the clique of criminals and hit them in their own homes.”
As it seems, the king is serious as the meeting was attended by Prince Faisal bin al-Hussein, the Prime Minister, and the Chief of the Royal Hashemite Court, and adviser of the King’s Military Affairs, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and advisor to King for National Security Affairs, the General Intelligence Director, the Director of the King’s Office, and adviser to King National Policy Board decision, and foreign ministers and the affairs of expatriates The interior of State for media Affairs and Communications, and director of public security and director of the gendarmerie.
Jordan has the 67th most powerful military in the world, which is far from superpower status, but capable of taking on Islamic State’s stretched and in many cases undisciplined force, according to defense experts. Jordan’s military has 110,700 active duty personnel, 65,000 reserve members, 1,321 tanks and 4,600 armored fighting vehicles. Its air fleet has 246 aircraft, including 74 fighter planes and 24 attack helicopters. The nation of 6 million has a defense budget of $1.5 billion.
The country can also count on support from other nations, including the U.S., many oil-rich gulf states, and possibly Japan, which had two of its citizens beheaded by ISIS days before the video surfaced.
This king was cut from the same cloth as his father, King Hussein who had had similar problems and was patient when his nation suffered from the PLO pricking continually at his military during the seventies until one day he had enough and booted the PLO using brute force out to Lebanon.

AIR JORDAN: Country Releases Video Of Its F-16s Bombing ISIS [VIDEO]
(THE DAILY CALLER) -- The Jordanian military published a video online Thursday of its F-16 fleet flying sorties and bombing ISIS in retaliation for the death of Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kasasbe, who was burned to death in a video released by the militant group earlier this week.
Dozens of fighters bombed ISIS training and weapon storage sites Thursday as part of Jordan’s aggressive new campaign, which will now stretch beyond Syria and into Iraq, according to the Associated Press.
In the video, which aired on state television before being published online, Jordan said the strikes will continue ”until we eliminate them,” and showed military personnel reportedly writing ”for you, the enemies of Islam,” in chalk on the missiles of aircraft that were deployed in Thursday’s operations.
