The world at large

A few days ago, our world was shaken when the city of Paris was attacked by the  terrorist group known as ISIS. Earlier this year, Paris was attacked by ISIS and 17 people were killed. This more recent attack was much larger and Paris lost over 100 men, women and children. This is, to say the least, a terrible tragedy. But why is this happening? ISIS is attacking the countries which are putting in the greatest resistance against itself. France so  far has been one of the greatest supporters of the war against ISIS, a service for which we are incredible.

I have heard it said that the U.S.A. has enough troops and firepower to end any war within two weeks if they were to dedicate every resource. Why has this not been put to the test? If we truly are trying to end terrorism it must be destroyed completely. ISIS and its affiliates must be destroyed. But our governments around the world are seeing the attacks in Paris and around the world and they are becoming afraid that the same thing will happen here. We need to follow the example set by France and do everything we can to end this war, despite our fears.

I mentioned on my Twitter feed that I would also like to talk about  the Syrian refugee crisis today. I only have a few things to say about this, as I do not have extensive knowledge about it. I would like to point out that there are thousands of refugees currently without homes. There is also many people and corporations like Bill Gates and Apple that have billions of dollars at their disposal and are doing nothing to end this problem. If they were to collaborate and spend a few million dollars each they would be able to house and feed thousands of refugees.  With enough sponsors, an island could even be purchases for the refugees, providing them with a home, even their own country. It disappoints me that we all talk about fixing these problems and changing the world but we do not use every available resource to resolve the issues presented to us.

This is just a quick peek at my view of these issues, things that I have noticed and wanted to point to you. If you have any ideas or opinions on this, comment below or send me a message on Twitter. Thanks for reading and remember to keep both the Paris and Syrian people in your prayers.
