If we Were President of The United States

If we were president I would focus most on terrorism. It is a problem that has been around for to long. Our own citizens are being Attacked by other U.S. citizens who have been radicalized. Our allies have been attacked and it's not going to be to long before an American plane is blown up or a mass ground attacking takes place.

We believe that if we don't act now and get ground troops along with other nations or start to bomb them more it will come back to hurts. Minnesota is one of their largest recruiting targets. It is scary to think that the ideas they share are actually working on people and making them kill mass amounts of people.

If we act now we will be able to disable their communications. If we could do that they have would have to start from scratch and if we just kept bombing them till they are not existent than they would have no way to get the resources they need and Isis would no longer be a threat to American or any nations lives.
