During World War II we engaged in a prolonged air and bombing offensive to defeat the nazi (I refuse to capitalize the name) regime. The nazis had begun a continuing effort to annihilate the people who practiced the Jewish religion. Without regard to gender or age they indriscriminately put to death eight million people (not all were Jewish) with bullets, engine exhaust and gas chambers. The most frightening aspect of this scenario is that President Franklin D. Roosevelt was aware of these mass murders and yet did nothing more than continue the bombing. Perhaps the technology of the day did not allow a more aggressive effort to come forth. Nonetheless nothing was done directly to stop the killing of innocent civilians even though we knew what was happening. Thousands of airmen gave their lives in the bombing raids while below them thousands more were giving their lives simply for the religion that they practiced.
Today we see a similar situation. Thousands of innocent people are being murdered openly to the eyes of the world. We now have a terrorist organization that is determined to set back civilization at least a thousand years; they are ISIS or ISIL. Nothing in history demonstrates such demonic, barbaric or hideous behavior as does ISIS. They behead civilians simply because of the victims country or origin to shock the world. They stone women, mutilate women, crucify, behead and otherwise murder anyone who is of a religion other than their Sunni brand of Islam. Prisoners of war are summarily executed in mass by slavering psychotics with guns.
Do not think that they are simply an abhoration of the Middle East. They are in fact a virilant plague upon all the earth. They will not stop with victories in Syria and Iraq. They will infect every corner of every country until there are no borders or independent countries left. Their psychosis hungers for your blood and mine.
We have started a bombing campaign just as we did in WWII. The WWII campaign did not stop the nazis from their mass murders, and it will not stop ISIS. We have done little to directly save the innocent civilians of the two countries currently victims of ISIS. We are charged by humanity to muster the courage to use every means possible to save these people. Bombing does little except to anger the psychotic killers into a murdering frenzy. The only solution is to bring every army of the world to attack and destroy every ISIS stronghold until the world is safe again. We must learn from history and never allow another holocaust on this earth.
