US Ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power made a prediction last week on the ABC program this week that if America conducts air strikes it wont be the only nation fighting against the terrorist group called ISIS. Even though no other nations had announced any formal information indicating their involvement with the fight against ISIS, predictions are being made giving the public hints that the possibility of other nations joining the fight against terror in Syria and Iraq are high. The Iraqi people appealed to the international community for help to come in their defense not only in Iraq but in neighbor countries such as Syria.  This is where ISIS bases are located and have grown since the ongoing civil war began over a year ago.  The US has the legal basis to conduct an air strikes against ISIS, considering the fact that they are a major threat to many innocent lives. ISIS has bragged about their war atrocities and human rights violations by airing videos of beheaded American journalists.

President Obama recently admitted in a 60 minutes interview aired September 28th that the US intelligence underestimated the power of ISIS and overestimated the ability of the Iraqi people to fight against ISIS.  He has admitted that the immediate threat to the world is worse than he thought and that is why we are currently acting.  “America leads” when there is any crisis in the world because no other country is as willing and able.  What happens when we are not able to respond the way we want?

I believe this is all for a good cause to help save innocent lives, and to create stability  in the Middle East. On the other hand, I don’t think we should get too involved on this issue, since we could get dragged into another war in the Middle East which does not benefit our economy or the well being of our people directly.  Another point to look at is; this is a “religious war” happening in the Middle East, with many people willing to die for their beliefs.  Are we as a nation just fueling the fire of so called “religious extremism” or are we contributing to greater global security?

The United States can not solve all of the world problems but this should not stop us from trying if we have the resources to act.

    I totally agree about the US. getting too involved in this war. I can imagine our nation, our kids, our self fighting and begging for mercy. What happens if ISIS decides to attack the US. what would really happens to all innocent people because we are involved in a war that we should not be in.

    Our economy today is not so great. And I agree that going into another war will just make things worse for our economy because we are using money to supply our troops for the war effort. But I think personally if a terrorist group such as Isis hurts one of our own citizens, we should take immediate action because if we dont do anything about it, it makes us look weak and I think isis deserved being bombed by that tomahawk missile because nobody steps on us.
