To The Daily Sun,
ISIS is a threat to the Western way of life. This is not because they will cause some attacks, but because they will panic us into over reacting to a perceived, but exaggerated threat.
The PBS video of them training Afghan children to be ISIS terrorists is terrifying. It is scary to me because I cannot see what will stop them from spreading around the Muslim world. ISIS will find an easy foothold in any Muslim population that is poor and uneducated.
Obama has been criticized for not doing more in Syria. He is thinking out how to deal with ISIS. No amount of bombing them in Syria, or conventional military action will make a dent. The most effective way to keep them from the U.S. is keeping our Constitution intact, and continuing the effective intelligence effort that we now deploy. We will locate the few who want to do damage to us put them out of business. All the Western countries will need to do the same.
Everyone should watch this scary documentary by an extremely lucky, talented reporter.
