While the Administration plays-with-words for our intentions with Iraq and Syria, Americans and our allies have been killed by radical Islamic supporters which behead innocents to send a message of fear to the world of ISILs willingness for brutality.
The beheadings did not just start with journalist James Foley and Steven Sotloff in Raqqa, Syria, but go back to early 2013 with ISIL forces “overran government forces in al-Raqqa city, the first provincial capital and only urban center to fall to [ISIL] rebel hands since the start of the uprising.” Despite Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad “conduct[ing] airstrikes on at least twelve occasions in the first two weeks of [February 2013]” the rebels took control of Raqqa on 4 March 2013. Assad “demonstrate[d] that the regime has primarily used airpower in retaliation for rebel victories rather than in defense of regime troops during the rebel offensive.” This tactic of airstrikes only, combined with “Assad [being seen] as a liability rather than an asset, crumbled [his position] rapidly.”
It was not long after, in May 2013 when a British Solider, 25-year old Lee Rigby, was “hacked to death with a machete, a meat cleaver and kitchen knives… brutally assault[ing] the man until he was beheaded.” The assault on Rigby did not happen in “hostile” territory, but took place on the streets of London in broad daylight down the street from the Woolwich Royal Artillery Barracks.
One of the assailants was filmed on a smartphone immediately after the attack saying “This British soldier is an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth,” according to the eye witness because, “I killed him because he killed Muslims and I am fed up with people killing Muslims in Afghanistan they have nothing to do there.”
Lee Rigby is not the only British citizen to be publically executed by ISIL. David Haines, a British Aid Worker and father of two, was beheaded like American journalists, James Foley and Steven Sotloff on 13 September 2014 in Syria. Of the four public beheadings of westerns by radical Islamists, three were in Syria. Yet, the airstrikes only began in Syria 23 September 2014.
According to the US, “there are around 50 countries that have signed up for its coalition to take on, to be part of the campaign against Islamic State in
