Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer has a message for ISIS after regarding the group’s purported claim to have “trained soldiers” in 15 states waiting to be activated: bring it, if they are foolish enough to do so.
Meyer responded to ISIS in a video, which he posted to his Facebook page, which has gone viral, garnering nearly a million views in a little over 24 hours.
“Well I have a warning to you ISIS, we have trained soldiers in all 50 states that are ‘trained,’ they’re armed,” Meyer says. “We have also disgruntled veterans in all 50 states that are armed and trained.”
He adds that U.S. soldiers have been “kicking your ass for the last 14 years on your own turf and have been waiting for the opportunity for you to come over and try to bring your beliefs to the greatest country on the face of the earth.”
Beyond just veterans, “around 90 percent of Americans own weapons,” the former Marine points out, and he believes that “95 percent of Americans…would stand up for this country and would fight for it with every moral fiber of their being.”
He also notes that: “There are over 270 million guns in America. That is why we live in the greatest country on the face of the planet. Do you understand that? And it’s not going to change any time soon,” regardless of ISIS’s “Islamic, radical, bulls–t beliefs.”
Meyer, 27, was awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions in fighting in Afghanistan in 2009. He is the second-youngest living Medal of Honor recipient, according to the Washington Times.
