Padre Steve’s thoughts on ISIS

September 4, 2014

Hey Y’all,

 

I don’t normally re-post anything because my goal is to provide original articles on all topics. But on some matters I chose to defer to an expert. The link below is from a good friend, a veteran of Iraq, former Army and current Naval Officer who teaches history at the Naval War College in Norfolk, Va. He is also a Priest and a Chaplin for the Navy. He served a year on the front lines with Special Ops Teams in Iraq in probably the most difficult time of the war in 2007-2008. He suffers from PTSD and he speaks the truth on all topics.

 

 

His is a voice that speaks volumes because he knows history, he knows war and he knows people. I highly encourage all of you to read his thoughts on ISIS and where we are heading. This is not a happy, warm, fuzzy read and you will not ever hear any of this from our Political Leadership (in both parties) nor will you hear it on the evening news. But it is the truth, unfiltered and stated as plainly as anyone could ever state it. In this article, Padre Steve explains the motivations of ISIS, the problem with the Middle East and where the West fits into the equation.

 

 

I appreciate his honesty and openness in all things. I hope you appreciate him as well. Until next time, keep on rockin.
