• This 15-Year-Old Boy Lost His Foot To ISIS, Vows To Fight Back

    It’s the kind of courage one might wish was emanating from the White House.

    After ISIS militants planned and executed 15 simultaneous terrorist attacks on Kurdish forces in northern Iraq, one footless survivor has vowed to strike back.

    Kurdish government officials confirmed the attacks that spanned from the Mosul Dam in northern Iraq to the Sinjar mountain range.

    The attacks left countless injured, including 15-year-old Alel whose foot was blown off by an ISIS grenade in Kobani.

    “I want to go and continue my life where I left off,” Alel said lying in a hospital bed. “My homeland is precious. I want to go back to Kobani as soon as possible.”

    “I’ll be a soldier and help people in need.”

    After a decade of war, thousands of casualties, and countless graves the stretch across continents, the gains America made in our war in Iraq have vanished right before our eyes.

    ISIS, the group of murderous Islamists raping, burning, and beheading their way across the Middle East, is thriving largely because President Obama has constantly ignored the advice of his military experts and launched a full-throated war.

    Until literally hours ago, Obama has turned a blind eye to the plight of the Kurdish-Syrian town of Kobani where Alel was attacked today.

    After a month of talks that were going nowhere, the Obama administration announced new cooperation from Turkey who, according USA Today, will “help Kurdish military fighters known as the peshmerga cross its border en route to Kobani, the nearby Syrian town under threat by Islamic State militants.”

    “We are helping peshmerga forces to enter into Kobani to give support,” Turkish Foreign Minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu said.

    Hopefully, for the sake of people like Alel, the help isn’t too late.
