What Is The Threat Of Isis Inhumane?

Better Essays
Isis: An Evil Bunch The terrorist organization Isis or “Islamic State in Iraq and Syria” is a name with which we have unfortunately heard of far too often. They have inspired and personally carried out inhumane acts around the world way too many times. Even though they are frequently talked about on the news and among the public, do we really know what they want? Isis inspired the attacks in my hometown of San Bernardino last December proving that they are a cancer which will only keep on spreading if they are not stopped. Before that incident, I never believed Isis was a threat to the United States or to me, but I was proven wrong. Nevertheless, it is just about the threat they might impose on me because as I am writing this there are innocent …show more content…
They are going to continue expanding if no one intervenes, so they must be contained now. History professor Jeremy Suri says that sending ground troops into Isis’s territory would be a bad idea because, “President George W. Bush promised to “win” what he called the “Global War on Terror,” but when he left office in 2009, Afghanistan and Iraq remained violent nests for terrorist groups,” and he adds, “Obama initially increased American forces in Afghanistan, and he escalated the use of drone strikes. Seven years later, the terrorists continue to dominate much of the Middle East and Central Asia.” Suri is in essence, saying that we shouldn’t send ground troops to defeat Isis because we didn’t completely get rid of all the terrorists the first few times around. The thing is, we will never get rid of every single terrorist. The goal here is to defeat Isis who is the biggest terrorist organization we have ever seen. They are so out of their minds that even Al-Qaeda wants nothing to do with them. Like Tim Lister mentions, “There has been a significant attack directed or inspired by ISIS every 84 hours since June 8 in cities outside the war zones in Iraq, Syria, Sinai in Egypt and Libya.” That number is hard to believe and if nothing is done to stop them, then their next victim could be you or me. Isis is a real threat and we have to understand that. Al-baghdadi once wasn’t a threat, and look what happened. Isis isn’t a “JV” team as President Obama has referred to them, they are much more dangerous than that. I will personally volunteer to go and fight these cowards as soon as the commands are made. If giving up my life means millions of others will live peacefully, then I’ll take it. Women should not be burned and killed because they refuse to have sex with a man. Children should be able to live a normal childhood without being brainwashed with nonsense about chopping others’ heads

    After years and billions pumped into annihilating Al Qaeda, They just shrunk out of the spotlight until they grew enough to be formidable once again. ISIS coming from Al Qaeda is living proof of the ineffectiveness of war. You can murder people, but you can’t murder a way of thinking, and that is what you would have to do to fully defeat ISIS. Any military accomplishments would simply be temporary. If we follow this course of action, or lack there of, we would risk things going horribly.…

    The terrorist group known as ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq) was able to come into being due to the weakness of the surrounding Middle eastern countries along with U.S. hesitancy has created a group with violent plans to bring the world to islam, with fear tactics such as the Paris attacks. They have grown as a threat “as sophisticated and well funded as any group that we have seen” (Coll) “Frankly [it’s] embarrassing for the world’s superpower” says Juan Zarate of CBS Security Analyst “to say that’s where we are three plus almost four years after this conflict has begun” (Kaplan). For a while now, we have been conducting airstrikes on ISIS and have created programs to train Syrian rebels, but all of our mediocre attempts to help the situation have been “strikingly ineffective.” Unless we can produce a force that could combat the ever growing force of ISIS, the Syrian world will continue to be just as destructive to the world as…

    Before a country goes to battle it must first publically and clearly define why it is entering battle (Orend 48-50). President John F. Kennedy warned the public of the domino effect of communism. Essentially, the domino effect is that if Vietnam was overtaken with communism, then each surrounding country would fall one by one and succumb. It is safe to say this is his main reasoning but it is not consistent with his actions and Gulf of Tonkin resolution. This is commonly known as the slippery slope fallacy.…

    As an American we must fight for our country, since they attacked us on our soil, then it is our duty to retaliate and show them what we are made of. Before 9/11 happened, If George H W Bush was not inaugurated into office, and then this could have ended up differently, maybe. Supposedly the Al Qaeda where planning 9/11, 10 years before, whether it is true or no who knows. George Bush Sr. had animosity toward Iraq’s former president Saddam Hussein. When 9/11 occurred and the terrorist planes attacked the world trade center, that is when George W Bush Jr. sent our troops to defend…

    After the ambush, there were claims that Saddam was providing military help to Al-Qaeda (The Weekly Standard, 2003). This had aggravated the need to go to war and increase security. During the war, US successfully removed the regime of Saddam and confirmed that there were no possession of WMDs were to be found. Critics may say that if WMDs were not found, why did US still go through to war? As a realist, the two most important things to the state would be security and power.…

    Alternatives need to be examined to make sure that the United States is not using drones without absolute certainty that civilian lives are not at risk. To help restore trust in Middle East and Afghanistan branches of the federal government need to be held more accountable. The United States can not continue to implement such an aggressive military strategy because it only creates more enemies in the long term. When Barack Obama took office in 2009 he had a to deal with the Bush administration 's war in Afghanistan. “It was clear from early in his administration that President Obama would approach Afghanistan differently from his predecessor”(Hendrickson 2015).…

    Without a doubt at that point in time president Bush 's first year was used to fight many terrorist attacks that later compelled him to launch a war against terrorism that initiated in Afghanistan and Iraq. This war later brought hatred towards W. bush that later in his 2006 election hurt him drastically, many people argued that all they heard was more and more deaths happening in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Also, he has ordered more close in support like Apaches and A10 aircraft to help ground forces. If we as Americans truly believe in religious freedom and human rights, then we should lead the way in destroying ISIS and others like them. “The overwhelming consensus that Foreign Policy found when polled more than 100 foreign policy experts-evenly dispersed along the political spectrum-and found that 91 percent felt that the world was becoming more dangerous for the United States and 84 percent said we are not winning the war on terror” (Cole 61). Even though the American public has a pessimistic view toward the possibility of a ground war, the danger of further terrorist attacks against the United States and its European allies should be taken into account. A strong determined leader with a clear path to victory can call arms against these terrorists.…

    I think Osama took that as an advantage, because many hated countries of America might aid Osama to take the U.S.. However many people know that America never backs down to a fight, so they went to iraq and fought back, lost many battles but still got many things accomplished. After 10 years Theseus killed the minotaur and ruined the plots for the Al Qaeda. Surprisingly the Al Qaeda had furthered their plans without Bin Laden.

    Even with the recent terrorist events and the rise of ISIS, I feel that the US should still continue our plan to accept 10,000 Syrian refugees, but that we should be more cautious than we even planned to be. Over 90% of Syrian refugees have no affiliation or agreement with ISIS whatsoever, so in no way should we automatically assume that they are terrorists, because radicalization does not automatically associate with Muslims or Middle Eastern people. For most of Syria, they are innocently living in a war torn country and have nowhere to go. Though a few Americans claim that it “isn’t our problem” because Syria is so far away, it is our problem. We are part of the UN and our goal is to help others when we can, so why would we not help people who are in need when only a few have turned to terrorism.…
