ISIS is an Islamic terrorist group that was formed in 2004. They have been trying to come after the US since 2014. They come at us because they hate all people that are non-muslim. This terrorist group is a huge problem for us because they are targeting many deadly attacks towards us. They have already carried out attacks in West Africa, Tunisia, Turkey, Lebanon, France, and Indonesia.
All democratic candidates think that we should not put US troops on the ground in Iraq and Syria. In the debate over whether to go after ISIS or Assad, democrats Martin O'Malley and Bernie Sanders both say that defeating ISIS should be the priority over driving Syrian president Bashar al Assad out of his position. Hillary thinks that both should be approached at the same time.
All Republicans including Ben Carson, Donald Trump, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, and Ted Cruz have interesting opinions on ISIS. Ben Carson Believes that we would need to put US soldiers on the ground in Syria and Iraq and that we should try to do everything possible to try ton defeat them. Donald Trump believes that we should bomb our way to peace. Jeb Bush believes that it is ok to put troops on the ground in Syria and if it is required more troops then we have to do so. Marco Rubio believes that we cannot afford to keep ISIS alive but at the same time he is worried about American blood. Ted Cruz believes that we should use air power in order to destroy ISIS.
Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have opinions on the topic of ISIS. For example, Hillary says, "Our prayers are with the people of France tonight, but that is not enough. We need to have a resolve that will bring the world together, to root out the kind of radical, jihadist ideology that motivates organizations like ISIS, a barbaric, ruthless, jihadist, terrorist group,". Hillary basically is saying that she wants to try and resolve the issue that ISIS has with us and try to bring the world together. Trump's opinion states, "That's right. I'd blow up the pipes, I'd blow up the refineries, every single inch, there would be nothing left." This quote shows Trump's opinion is very different for Hillary's. He is saying that he wants to destroy them as soon as possible.
I believe that we should put American soldiers in Syria to try to destroy ISIS I also think that we should use bombs to defend ourselves. I think ISIS is a huge issue and they need to be stopped as soon as possible
