I Just Don’t Understand

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 1:3 (NIV)

So there were over 100 people that died in the Paris France attack.

Thousands of people are leaving their home in Syria, Iraq, and villages and countries seized by IS militants. Now Europe and the world are finding themselves at risks of more attacks that may lie hidden in Syrian refugees. Understandably these refugees create apprehension for a lot of people all over the world.

Evidence has been found in a Russian airplane traveling from Egypt back to Russia that a homemade bomb destroyed the plane and all 224 people on board again IS claims responsibility for this tragedy as well.

One hundred forty seven students were killed in Kenya by an Islamic gunman.

Then there’s the Mali attack.

Interestingly enough IS is competing with Al-Qaeda for terrorist supremacy…okay that’s weird.

These terrorists are a threat to everyone killing men women and children and targeting Christians as well. So people are being killed by terrorist all over the world and all the aforementioned events occurred in the last 5 months. It becomes obvious now that terrorists activities have escalated.

Here is my observations about ISIS:

1) They recruit people from other countries to die for them.

2) Daesh would show videos of how powerful they are by killing unarmed soldiers, innocent civilians and Christians.

3) Daesh knows full well that they would be beat in a organized military engagement from any country.

4) The Daesh are striving in the field of education but frequently are not able to graduate the entire class . Apparently its easy to pass the class but not always easy to graduate.

Sunday night I watched 60 Minutes where a military general said that US forces have carried out over 1000 successful missions against ISIS. The political leader of the country said that the US forces have minimal engagement with ISIS or as this leader put it “Daesh”. Apparently ISIS hates this word “Daesh” so much that they would cut their own tongues out if they ever said it.

So many News agencies say that we, the world, are at war with ISIS even though Putin is calling for a global effort against ISIS. Wow so Putin has assumed leadership in the fight against ISIS and the French are already involved in tactical strikes in Syria and the US blew up 283 Daesh trucks…carrying oil.

Before I continue I would like to thank Anonymous and all other cyber attack groups in joining the war against the Daesh.

So after all that’s been said and done just let me say this. If we are at war with Daesh aka IS why aren’t we in their territories? Why is there no military forces on the ground engaging the Daesh. I would think that would be one way of curbing the terrorists activities abroad since they would be so engaged in military battles from other countries they would not be able to train new terrorists or developing terroristic events. Are we at war with Daesh or just slapping their hands for being naughty terrorist? What are we afraid of? Why are the world leaders sitting on their hands on this one? Let me guess “It’s not that simple” or “There are a lot of things that have to be taken in consideration” or “It’s not that easy”. Those are the first 3 political excuses I am sure we will hear from our leaders.

Let me just ask the world leaders this one question “How many more people have to die before the world leaders take action?”
