On Friday, November 13th, I sat on my couch, watching show after show, late at night.
On Monday, November 16th, several terrorist attacks occurred in Paris, France.
The death toll has reached over a hundred, with many more injured.
Several bombings and mass shootings occurred simultaneously: the artwork of ISIS. ISIS stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. The organization also goes by ISIL, meaning the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. This group’s territory is in the uppermost region of Syria. They’re responsible for several terrorist attacks, including those in Paris.
While Paris rallies forces in the short few days since the attack, America has opted out of assisting France. I believe, despite the rashness of France’s reaction, that the U.S. should help France against the common enemy, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. Helping France is not only the moral decision, it will also be beneficial to us as France and its allies will come to our aid when the time comes.
If America chooses to assist the French, we would be making the decision to help our friends. All around the world, the French colors fly high in defiance against terrorism and fear, bringing us all closer together against the common enemy.
Several countries have marked their national landmarks with the French colors in support. What good is showing love and support towards France if we just hide behind our hypocrisy? We’re hiding behind false patriotism, feeling proud to change our Facebook profile picture to support Paris, as we sit idle on the sidelines of battle.
Along with providing assistance to our friend and ally, by aiding France, we would be ensuring our safety in the future.
In the future, when one day terrorism strikes America, we’ll need all the help we can get. If we help France, they will in turn come to us when we need help.
Allies are necessary when fighting on your own home territory. When there is no room to back up and no space to back down, a helping hand can be the difference between life and death. Between razing and raising a country. This decision could, in the long term, be extremely important to every single American resident.
Not only is this the opportunity to make friends, this just may be the perfect opportunity to vanquish the evil of the earth.
With terrorism being an imminent threat to our very existence on this earth, the absolute need to strike down the bringers of fear and pain is essential. The mere existence of terrorists, no matter what location, is encouragement for the scum of the earth to rise and join.
The mere existence of terrorists brings hopelessness to the millions. It brings fear, pain, and horror to the widows and parentless children. To the innocents attempting survival in a havoc stricken country. To the people of the free world.
Bringing the reign of terror down would be an event marked in history as the day freedom and love prevailed over hate and violence.
It’s essential to destroy terrorism, and this is the perfect opportunity to bond together, fight together, and win, victorious over our enemy, together.
As a token of my thoughts, I am posting digital floral arrangements compliments of Kara’s Flowers and Victorian Gardens: Click Here to see who they are. This pic is from their site. Beautiful white roses.
