The War on ISIS 1,922 people. According to the Huffington Post, that is the number of people killed by ISIS in June 2014 (Wing). ISIS is a dangerous force in the world, and the United States has a moral obligation to end its rule. ISIS has threatened America many times, it has killed thousands of innocent people, and its extreme wealth is allowing the organization to continue the attacks. The U.S. has a duty to itself, and to the rest of the world, to stop the brutal regime of ISIS. America needs to increase its military action against ISIS so that it can protect the people of the world.
The U.S. government has an obligation to defend American citizens. In the past, ISIS has threatened America. On December 1, 2014, the FBI released information about their discovery of posts on social media from ISIS supporters advocating an attack against the United States. These posts were similar to those that appeared prior to the attack in Canada, where two uniformed officers were murdered (Ross). ISIS proved it is not afraid to attack a Western country. Similarly, on January 28, 2015, an ISIS fighter threatened to “behead Barack Obama and turn the U.S. into a Muslim province” (Dearden). These types of threats …show more content…
has a moral imperative to work with foreign markets to prevent ISIS from acquiring more assets, and to freeze the assets they have in financial institutions. ISIS is already an extremely wealthy group and is using its fortune to oppress anybody who opposes their radical Islamic beliefs. Due to this wealth, ISIS has the ability to match any enemy’s military action with equal to greater force. ISIS is able to fund its army and military operations (Tapper). If the U.S. can stop ISIS from obtaining more money, the U.S. will have a better chance at preventing future attacks. The U.S. needs to forcefully respond to ISIS to prevent them from amassing the money and equipment to conduct additional

Isis has 30,000 fighters( “Isis trail of terror”). February 2015, Isis had 20,00 more foreign fighters who had come to help( “Isis trail of terror”). Not including 150 from the United State. Isis is spreading into Syria, Iraq, and towards Baghdad tormenting the sick, and killing people till they decide to join their side ( “Isis trail of terror”).Obama said, “ Let's be clear about Isis, they have rampaged across cities beheading people in cowardly acts of violence.”( “Isis trail of terror”). Isis is growing bigger and bigger each second, and only we can stop it.
On the clear day of the 11th of September 2001, Americans and citizens from other nations suffered a trauma that will be remembered for generations to come (Halliday 5). On September 11th al Qaeda terrorist under the command of Osama bin Laden hijacked two American Airline (AA) flights and two United Airline (UA) flights that would never again land. All of the planes that day would not go down without a fight. Although there were many heroic people that day, 9/11 ended as the worst terrorist attack in American history because of 19 men hijacking four planes that lead to 2,996 people dead (Statistic Brain).
ISIS has been a rapidly increasing threat to not just the United States of America, but the entire world. ISIS has done countless brutal, sick, heart wrenching things that have caused a national and international uproar in the citizens of numerous countries. ISIS considers them the Islamic State, and they seem to have many motives. They basically want a large portion of the Middle east under ISIS control and for the rest of the world to accept their disgusting “traditions” as they claim they are doing, This threat has done some very unspeakable things; the problem needs to be solved. Considering the view the United State holds right now, there are a few actions that can be taken to reduce this threat that ISIS presents. ISIS has rapidly become an enormous problem for most of, if not all of the world. There are some very simple and some very complicated ways to solves this problem. The most efficient way is to simple go to war with ISIS and physically, mentally and emotionally destroy everything and everyone that is supporting this cause, another way is to give them what they desire to have, finally the last option is just completely ignore the foreign issue until it presents itself on U.S. soil. After an online video emerged on Tuesday, January 21st, 2015, showing ISIS threatening to kill two Japanese hostages, relatively little was known about the relationship between the two prisoners. But Reuters News revealed later that next day
It is important that the US government does anything and everything to keep the people it governs over safe. With ISIS’s terrorist acts now spreading across Europe and with ISIS-inspired attacks here in America, the threat is growing each and every day.
On September 11th, 2001, 2,977 Americans lost their lives on what they thought was just another workday. These actions against the United States catapulted our Armed Forces into a full on War on Terror spread out over different countries. Since that fateful morning in September, over 6,000 Americans have lost their lives fighting in multiple theaters in support of the War on Terror. Many people have been personally hit by tragedy resulting from the War on Terror. People have lost their sons, their daughters, friends, and parents as the war creeps on. The United States needs to rescind its involvement in the War on Terror, which has claimed the lives of thousands of Americans, all while draining the American economy.
The war on Isis is a very sad and terrible thing. I feel as though I should tell you about it though, to give you a better understanding. The war on Isis stretches all across the middle east and other parts of the world such as Germany and Belgium. Many other countries besides the U.S are at war with Isis. Many countries hate Isis because of their terror. Isis is very similar to a terrorist group led by Osama bin Laden called Al-Queda. They want people to cower down in fear of them. The countries at war with them will not cower down in fear. We have showed that we are strong together and will fight against them.
Bombings. Trucks mowing down pedestrians. Shootings. Things that are not what people expect when they go out at night or who are simple doing what they do every day and dorm expect to die. These horrific attacks are getting closer to American soil, occurring more frequently, and becoming increasingly fatal. The 2015 Paris attacks killed 130 people, the most deadly assault on French soil since WWII. The Brussels bombings wounded over 350 victims. Armed men killed and took priests hostage in Normandy. On April 7th, a man drove a truck down a shopping street in Stockholm, killing 4 and injuring at least 15 others. All these people have been affiliated with ISIS. attackers were soldiers of their cause. We need to act preemptively before more of these despicable acts are inflicted upon Americans. Over 40% of Americans think America is more vulnerable to terrorism after 9/11. If we continue to wait and watch from the sidelines, something atrocious will happen in our homeland. As much as possible must be done to prevent this from ever
The recent terrorist attacks by ISIS have without question reignited the debate over whether ISIS is a threat to the United States. I believe this question easily answers itself. Eighty two Americans have been accused of helping the Islamic states. While out of those eighty two people thirty two asserted to carry out an attack on American territory. However, twenty eight actually went through with it and took action on carrying out their plan. Only five were in contact with the Islamic states while planning their attacks. Even though most of the attackers were not in direct contact with ISIS while planning these attacks, their actions were influenced by the belief that they are doing it for ISIS.
The United States is at risk of new terrorist organization. Resent attacks on parise shows the reach of this new terror group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. Al Qaeda has evolved into something more serious ISIS. The United States has a moral responsibility to protect itself and others from the threat ISIS poses and the rules that ISIS inforce. The people of the world have the right to practice their religion in their own way and not live in fear of groups like ISIS.
Many people think American soldiers should get involved with the ISIS attack on Paris and other attacks. But really, should we, many say no because the cost of sending troops over. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan cost $1.26 trillion from the start of the war to the end was maybe $8 trillion.The United States military lost over troops as casualties of the Iraq war and sent home at least 32,000 more who were physically and mentally damaged.Some say we don't want to start a bigger war. If we don't help then there's all ready going to be a war and who will help the innocent people. People are dying for no reason it’s sad to read about it; it could of be anyone and to wonder how the family’s dealing with their lost is unfortunate. The attack
The war against Iraq began on March 20, 2002, when the U.S lunched “Operation Iraqi Freedom”. This was after President Bush called Iraq part of an “axis of evil”, also calling the country dangerous which is threatening U.S with the world’s most destructive weapons. The major phase of the war began when U.S troops marched within 50 miles of Baghdad with heavy aerial attacks on Baghdad and other cities. After the attack on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon which was believed to be the work of Al Qaeda, U.S was concerned about the security of the Untied States which lead to the war in Iraq. Even though U.S officials felt the war in Iraq is the main priority, but many people in U.S opposes the war which brings up a lot of controversial issues.
On November 13 ISIS killed 130 people in Paris France with suicide bombers. The United States should escalate the war against ISIS because attacking, treatment, and war. ISIS is starting to kill people in the world and the united states are not doing nothing about it. The United States should get involved with the ISIS because there are killing, torturing people, and treating people with disrespect the people who live in Syria so it will not keep going on. America should help the others and stop the war that is going in Syria.
Ever since the beginning of the terrorist attacks on American soil, the War on Terror has been involved in the lives of Americans and nations near us. The War on Terror’s background originated through conflicts between warring countries in the Middle East; U.S. involvement started when a terrorist guided plane crashed into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 in New York City. The attack was suspected to be the work of the middle-eastern terrorist group Al-Qaeda. The U.S. military, under the leadership of then commander-in-chief George W. Bush, declared a “War on Terror” on the terrorist group and the fighting began.
