The United States military has started it’s campaign to degrade the Islamist troublemakers located in the midst of the Civil War in Syria. At some point in the future we hope to destroy an idea, a belief, a thought. All great empires of the past have attempted to change the core beliefs of those they conquered. This time there is a difference in order for the western world to succeed here Islam will have to be held in check by Christian values. That will be a tall order to fill.
The U.S. is slowly being drawn into a quagmire that has to run it’s course. We as a world power will have to justify the killings of innocents,.The so called “collateral damage” argument used by Gen. Colin Powell during the first Gulf war. There is the usual talk of smart weapons that will do minimal damage to surrounding property due their pin point accuracy. The people of Gaza would have a lot to say about statement.
The world is heading down the path to war once again, and there is nothing that our chosen leaders can or are willing to do anything about but prepare us for the uncertain future that awaits us all.
