It was hard to sit back over the weekend of November 13th and watch the events unfold in Paris. An entire city in Europe was left in chaos and a message was sent that none of us any place in this world are safe anymore- and you can pretty much expect the unexpected. It is the very definition of terrorism – to make you worry that no matter where you are or what you are doing there is always at least a sliver of a doubt that you safe. ISIS comes into our living rooms and onto our TV’s multiple times a week and that news is always about the evil things they are doing; there is never anything good about what they are trying to accomplish, yet the United States and the world’s strategy against them remains the same.
Their list of influence in the world of people who commit terrorist attacks is growing by leaps and bounds and the severity of those attacks grows too. Not only did ISIS have a direct hand in the brutal attacks in Paris which left over 100 dead, hundreds more wounded and millions around the world second guessing their own safety anywhere they go, but their influence played a part in the downing of a Russian jetliner with almost 200 people on board and the killing with bombs of hundreds more innocent civilians in a crowded section of Beirut, Lebanon.
What is even scarier is that these deadly attacks did not take place over a year or a six month period; they all took place in a matter of a few weeks’ time. That is over 400 dead in several attacks that took just a few minutes time each and changed many people’s lives in a negative way forever.
Make no mistake about it: while ISIS operates under the guise of “religious extremism,” they are in reality an evil cult and a plague on humanity. While they claim to be spreading a pure form of Islam, all they are really doing is murdering innocent people who do not share their same views, trading and keeping women for sex and hording as much money as they can along the way. Most of their soldiers do not fight for free because of some overwhelming desire to spread a religious cause; they are well paid for their efforts with both money and their evil twist on the spoils of war. They have to do this because they attract the worst and most desperate members of society into their ranks and that is the only thing that will keep them fighting.
ISIS quite frankly has now come to represent everything that is evil about this world. It is a scary thought when a group of people have grown into “gunslingers” without a single bit of compassion for human life and are not afraid to trade their lives for a few minutes of this twisted take on glory. What makes it even scarier is their numbers have grown into the thousands and they have almost worldwide reach.
The world needs to wake up. Evil is knocking at the door and a few airstrikes a day are not going to cut it. Just as the world stands together to fight any other plague, so does it need to stand together to wipe this evil vermin off the face of the earth. Make no mistake about it; if we don’t do something more drastic about ISIS, you will see these attacks in the USA’s streets next. It’s not a US problem, a French problem or a Russian problem; it’s a world problem and it’s only going to get worse if the world does not come together as one to do something about it.
