The time has come to stop playing defense and
start being the global leader we should be by playing some offense against
those looking to harm Americans and our allies.
History should have taught us by now that if we stand by as direct threats are made against us and our allies, innocent lives are lost due to our inaction.
In the wake of the gruesome terrorist attacks on Paris November 13th, it’s time for America to take a stand and lead our allies into a more secure and resolute future against our common enemy: ISIS.
Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty provides a more solid justification for the war against ISIS than the hesitant and half-hearted explanations presented by the Obama administration to-date.
Article 5 simply states that an attack against
one of our allies is attack against all members of NATO and thus provides
justification for declaring war against ISIS in this case. NATO members are
obligated to impose military force on a NATO adversary.
This is pretty cut and dry.
It’s time for America to show the world that we are resolute in our determination to obliterate—not just contain—those who harm America and her allies.
