For the past year or so, many of us have taken note on how the federal government doesn’t seem to be taking the threat of ISIS very seriously at all. Despite killing thousands of people both stateside and abroad, the powers that be rarely even acknowledge the terrorist organization’s existence. Because of this, many people have began to wonder if there’s something the federal government is hiding when it comes to ISIS.
Now we have a potential answer and it’s sure to make your skin crawl.
Officials in Syria are now claiming to have undeniable proof that the United States deliberately used an airstrike to kill Syrian soldiers that were engaged in combat against ISIS troops.
Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem recently stated, “The Syrian government puts all the responsibility for the aggression on the US, as the facts show that it was a deliberate attack, but not a mistake – even if America says the opposite.” Of course, there isn’t any substantial evidence we have seen that adequately back up this brash claim, but the statement doesn’t quite end there.
Muallem went on to claim that the attack “proves that the US and its allies are accomplices of Islamic State and other terror groups.” While this statement is currently just a matter of “he said, she said,” it oddly enough make sense when you consider just how compliant the federal government has been when it comes to the horrific actions of ISIS and its contemporaries.
Regardless of whether or not the United States government is in direct connection with the members of ISIS, there’s no denying that the feds haven’t done enough to keep us citizens protected from their violent attacks. They seem to have no answers for any of their actions and it has become increasingly clear that we are going to have to keep ourselves safe instead of relying on any organization to protect us.
We need to be prepared for the absolute worst, because the absolute worst is what has been happening on a regular basis. With every passing month, more terrorist attacks have occurred at the hands of ISIS or those who are directly inspired by ISIS. Regardless of the specifics, radical Islamic extremism is one of the greatest dangers facing the United States today and it should be treated as such — not just as some joke that can be laughed off while dozens of people are murdered in cold blood.
