The beheading of American journalist James Foley was horrifying. My prayers are with his family. May God comfort Foley's soul in eternity.
Foley was one of our sons, brothers and friends. He was an American. I don't see how we can sleep in this country until we destroy ISIS.
ISIS, is a world cancer and must be eliminated. I realize they are a long way from America, but cancer spreads fast.
Cancer is never welcome in any part of the human body. Cancer grows and kills. It has to be totally removed.
ISIS is the worst malignancy that has occurred on our planet since the Nazis.
I am opposed to putting American soldiers back on the ground in Iraq. However, we have drones, missiles and jets. We must unleash these at full throttle on ISIS. We must also provide the Iraqi people strategic military leadership and help neighboring countries defeat ISIS.
I have never been for America going to Iraq or any other Middle East country. I detest war. With ISIS we cannot sit idly by.
We are not on a separate planet removed too far for ISIS to bother us. They have their sights on America. Their goal is to strike fear and terror into all the Middle East and America. ISIS must be eliminated.
