The beheading of James Foley by an ISIS goon showed the world the face of true evil. An organization that brutally murders innocent civilians in the name of an insane ideology has no place in this world. Even the Pope has endorsed the use of force to rid the world of these barbarians. Sir, if you turn the other cheek to terrorists, they’ll cut it off. And if we don’t take the fight to them they’ll bring it to us. Our military heroes represent the most sophisticated, well trained fighting force in the history of the world. ISIS is no match for them and if there ever was a time for America to flex its muscles, it’s now.
Matthew 5:9 states: Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. The terrorists of the world claim to be fighting a holy war. The true holy war will be the one we must wage to rid the world of ISIS and every other group of terrorist thugs who identify themselves with an abbreviation and a propensity to hide behind women and children when it’s time to fight. A gang of thugs who are too cowardly to even show their faces doesn’t have a chance when it comes to a real fight against a highly trained and motivated fighting force like our military.
Mr. President, you’re taking baby steps against an opponent who sees baby steps as a sign of weakness. Targeted airstrikes are a start but must be followed by direct engagement of the enemy. Political reactions to acts of terrorism won’t get the job done. America is war weary and rightly so, but ISIS and its hangers on are determined to ply their deadly trade on our soil. ISIS represents a real and present danger to America and our interests around the world. Their stated goal is to fly their flag in the White House. We ignore these barbarians at our own peril and if we don’t stamp ISIS out now it will only be more difficult when the inevitable confrontation finally comes.
You may be asking yourself why a pro-life blogger is advocating military action in a foreign land. As a military veteran I don’t take placing American troops in harm’s way lightly. I also understand that as the world’s only remaining superpower, America has an obligation to exercise its capability to eradicate pests like ISIS wherever they are found. I’ll be back on the job tomorrow fighting for the world’s unborn children. Just like the world’s fight against terrorism, failure is not an option for me when it comes to saving children. I’ll stay on the job and respectfully request that you finally start doing yours.
As always, my letters to you are published on my pro-life blog at www.prolifepoppop.com. Write back and I’ll publish it, unedited.
