Why Pray for Paris?: The Necessity of Eliminating Enemy Threats

Updated on October 25, 2016

The Eiffel Tower: A Tribute in Lights


Aid Paris

What makes the November attacks on Paris all the more heinous is that those who may’ve thought that they were safe following the attacks on Charlie Hebdo in January and the thwarted train attack in August have met death or injury. In an age where the spectre of terrorism hangs over the heads of some of the freest nations, the response to such occurrences ought not be to pray for those harmed.

To offer up a petition to the unknown and unknowable would only exacerbate the efforts to seek and destroy the bastards who committed these atrocities. All energies ought to be focused on crushing the resolve and capacity for these attackers to initiate force against citizens the world over. For the United States and its allies to encourage making deals with terrorists is abhorrent. It is because of weak-kneed policies of the US and friendly nations that embolden these antagonists.

If there is to be a free world, the actions which France and other countries ought to take is to support counter-terrorism factions yes, but the root to ending these evils is to eliminate Islamic totalitarianism. By halting the deadly hand of groups like Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and Al Qaeda, the nations which ought to be protecting their people anyway would further take up the reins of justice. Backing down from the opposition would only spell other disasters.

It is time for America to lead as an example to send a message to France and other nations that this type of behavior will not be tolerated. And France and America seem to be at least trying to eradicate the disease of dictatorial regimes. With the airstrikes over targets reported to harbor ISIS operatives, these countries seem to be doing the right thing. But it’s not enough. In order to completely annihilate this enemy, these nations ought to stop apologizing for the havoc which terrorists wreak upon a relatively peaceful populace. The citizens of these countries ought to vote for leaders who will stand firm and demonstrate a bold plan for taking out the opposition. Rather than sending up prayers, France ought to be sending drones to take out even more ISIS targets. America ought to support and grieve for the loss of life sustained by its ally. Together, they ought to devise the perfect strategy to bolster forces and finish the enemy wherever he may lie.

      Thank you, Jodah. I agree with you wholeheartedly. The enemy ought to be crushed swiftly and thoroughly. If it has to come to the US utilizing nuclear weapons, so be it.

      Good article. ISIS actually makes a case for the "Atom Bomb"(something I never thought I'd say)
