6 months ago, the United States started conducting airstrikes on the militant groups of ISIS. Now the international coalition (which contains more than 60 countries) has done hundreds of missions against ISIS in Iraq and Israel.
According to U.S. Senate Department, the United States has contributed to a majority of the retaliations towards ISIS. On Monday, ISIS executed 20 Egyptian Christians. Fox News reports on Feb. 18, 2015 stated that ISIS could be harvesting the organs of their victims in order to fund their terror-related activities.
The terrors of ISIS are unseizing, and it seems that everyday there is a new report containing information on the extremist group. So what is the United States doing to prevent these attacks?
In early February, President Obama defended his campaign against ISIS in an interview, stating that the U.S. was “doing exactly what we should be doing.” The question is, what is it that “we” should be doing?
According to The Hill Obama claims that airstrikes and hope that the people of Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan will fight for themselves is the right course of action. Obama said in an NBC interview, “This takes longer, but it’s the right way to do things.” He later added in response to doubts, “Those who want us to shoot first and aim later are typically the ones to get this country into really bad situations.” He concluded the interview by saying, “Anything that we could be doing, we are doing.”
The United States is now conducting attacks upon ISIS along with the other countries in the international coalition.
