WASHINGTON, DC – President Obama is going to do what he said he wouldn`t do, and that is to start fighting in Iraq again.
The president told Americans and the rest of the world that he`s launching more air strikes in IRAQ against ISIS, or ISIL, aka the Islamic State. And, he`s sending more troops to Iraq to train and advise the Iraqis on how to defend themselves and their country.
“Our objective is clear: we will degrade, and ultimately destroy, ISIL through a comprehensive and sustained counter-terrorism strategy.”The president said he’s also going to try to convince other countries to join the fight against ISIS, and that he wants Congress to pay for additional support for so-called moderate Syrian rebels to fight ISIS, presumably the same moderates now fighting the Syrian government, and possibly the ones who kidnapped American Steven Sotloff and sold him to ISIS.But the president may not have to look beyond south Texas to find ISIS terrorists.
Francis Taylor, the undersecretary for intelligence and analysis for the Department of Homeland security, who told a senate committee that ISIS is using social media to plan a possible attack along the US-Mexico border.
‘There have been Twitter, social media exchanges among ISIL adherents across the globe speaking about that as a possibility.’
ISIS doesn`t need to move an army to South Texas. They just need one terrorist to cross the border to bring their war to us.
