Published

The blast from a roadside bomb killed three U.S. Servicemen in Afghanistan Tuesday morning, and wounded three others.

“Lt. Ubon Mendie, a spokesman for the U.S. forces, said in a statement that three other service members and one American civilian contractor were injured in the blast. The wounded were evacuated and were being provided medical care, Mendie said,” according to USA Today. 

The Taliban – the same one that we have been fighting since 2001 – claimed responsibility for the attack, which happened in the Ghazni province. The identities of the soldiers remain unknown.

According to the report, at least five servicemen have been killed in Afghanistan in November in a seemingly-endless war from which the last two president’s have promised withdrawal. That withdrawal has yet to become reality. A total of 11 servicemen have been killed there this year.

Army Sgt. Leandro Jasso, 25, was killed last week during combat operations in the Helmand province of Afghanistan. He was a member of the elite 2nd Battalion of the 75th Army Ranger Regiment.

The war in Afghanistan has raged on since 2001, and the war in Iraq since 2003. The United States has deposed Iraq’s Saddam Hussein and Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi, which has led to widespread chaos and war between factions of mostly-Islamic groups in the Middle East.

The Trump administration has faced pressure to depose Syria’s Bashar al-Assad over reports of his alleged use of chemical weapons on his own people. So far, Trump has managed to keep the military industrial complex at bay, but has not managed to find a solution for war-weary Americans have been looking for a way out the Middle Eastern quagmire for years.

Without an established end goal, it appears that our brave troops are simply meandering in an endless void of violence. It is time to bring them home.

Two Men Arrested for Planning Terrorist Attack on Trump Tower in Support of ISIS

They’re from South Carolina and Texas.

Published

The FBI has arrested two men and charged them with planning terrorist attacks on locations such as New York’s Trump Tower in support of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

Kristopher Sean Matthews of South Carolina and Jaylyn Christopher Molina of Texas have been charged with conspiring to provide material support or resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization.

Matthews adopted the pseudonym Ali Jibreel, and Molina the name Abdur Rahim.

The pair allegedly plotted to attack government facilities and New York’s Trump Tower, discussing their plans in jihadist chatrooms. They were busted by federal informants within these honeypots.

We need to stick together, we need to defeat them, we need to take a lot of casualties,” said Molina of the pair’s plotting. Molina spoke of his allegiance to ISIS in the server. “You are my enemy (America) and never will I wear your flag … but I will raise the black flag of Allah.

They also spoke of the proposition of traveling to Syria in order to fight for ISIS, an idea that would’ve almost certainly resulted in their quick capture or death. American citizens caught fighting for ISIS on foreign battlefields have proven to be a legal nightmare for American military and civil law to manage.

Both were arrested on Monday. They face a maximum penalty of twenty years in prison, with a lifetime of supervised release.

These clowns didn’t get very far in actually planning acts of violence in support of ISIS, and they seem to have somewhat missed the boat- ISIS has largely been defeated by American-backed Kurdish militias and the Iraqi and Syrian governments. But they deserve punishment nonetheless.
