Most Important Power
Current World Issue
This issue with ISIS that the whole world is facing, happens everyday whether we know it or not. Each day hostages are being killed by ISIS and they continue to plan their next attack. The attacks occur all over the world and everyone must be thinking one will soon be happening in the U.S. We must be prepared in case the unspeakable happens. Everyone must try to do everything they can to stop this threat from ever reaching the U.S. No one wants another attack like 9/11 or the Boston Marathon or any attack of any kind to occur anywhere, but especially not in OUR country.
If I had the responsibility of being the President of the United States, I would have several powers guaranteed to me that I would use to fight this issue. The first one is Commander in Chief. I would form an alliance with other countries to send military personnel into isolated parts of the Middle East to eradicate the ISIS group. Although they are spread out, I would work as hard as I possibly could until everyone in the whole world can go to bed knowing they don't need to worry about ISIS anymore. I would also make sure Congress is passing and enforcing extra security laws in airports to guarantee no attacks could happen on an airplane or at an airport. The trait I would use to help with this issue would be a level 5 leader. Using all the courage possible to work until I physically can't anymore to ensure the safety of my country. I wouldn't rest until the threat is destroyed to ensure the continuation of the freedom of the United States.
