It is a perpetual war that U.S. is leading to meet its hidden objectives. And Germany is the new victim of the U.S. conspiracy.

Germany’s parliament has decided to send its military support for the U.S.-led coalition that is fighting against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorists in Syria.
Germany has agreed to join forces with the coalition after receiving a request from France, as ISIS terrorists had killed over 130 innocent people last month in a deadly attack in Paris.
Currently, a 65-nation coalition led by the U.S. is claimed to be fighting against ISIS. Despite nearly 8,000 airstrikes against the terrorists, the joint forces could hardly make any impact on ISIS. It is being observed that ISIS is not deterred and rather expanding its tentacles beyond Iraq and Syria.
Plus, the world’s most dreaded terrorist organization has repeatedly shown that it can strike at will against any enemy, any time, anywhere. The recent bombing down of a Russian plane in Egypt and attacks in Paris are the manifestations of its prowess in the terror world.
After trying out various options without any success, the U.S. has now decided to deploy 100 personnel in a new random strategy that once again aims to defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS) terrorists in Iraq and Syria.
According to Pentagon sources, defense secretary Ash Carter’s plan to deploy an expeditionary targeting force can accelerate ISIL’s defeat. The U.S. along with its allies has already tried a slew of strategies targeting ISIS. However, ISIS has been hitting back and gaining control of more terrains. Now ISIS has planned to enter Europe.
Are U.S. plans working? Not really. When U.S. President Barack Obama claims that ISIS is not expanding, he is either misinformed or telling a lie while the U.S. and its allies are totally clueless about the ISIS’ strengths or even weaknesses.
They don’t even know about the number of militants who are fighting under the ISIS flag, although the U.S. defense department estimates the number of militants between 20,000 and 30,000.
The coalition airstrikes are not actually hitting the ISIS locations because the terrorists are, in fact, hiding among civilian populations. And it is not possible for coalition forces to attack civilian areas.
In the given situation, it will be extremely difficult for the U.S.-led coalition as well as Russia (which is separately fighting against ISIS) to defeat ISIS.
Now, there is a growing concern in the U.S. and other top nations which are fighting against ISIS that their strategies have largely failed to defeat the terrorist organization.
The Republican National Committee (RNC), for example, has released a new web video entitled ‘Can Leaders Like These Keep Us Safe?’ to criticize President Obama and his policies to counter ISIS’ threat.
Moreover, ISIS is a major factor for the increasing tension between NATO nations and Russia, which is supported by its allies such as China and Iran, as both sides are hell-bent to dominate the oil-rich Middle East region.
What Is Islamic State?
Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) or Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) or Islamic State (IS) is a modern militant organization, which uses digital media effectively to deliver its messages and for new recruitments of fighters.
With a strong force of more than 30,000 fighters under its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, ISIS is attacking different nations with the aim to set up a large Islamic State called the Caliphate or an independent country.
Currently, ISIS holds a state which is at least equivalent to the geographical area of the U.K. But it has already planned to move beyond Iraq and Syria in order to expand its regime. As its next target is Europe, it has started attacking top European countries including France and Russia.
Recently, ISIS claimed responsibility for the Nov. 13 Paris attacks in which 132 people died. Earlier, when the Russian airstrikes hit ISIS in Syria, the ISIS militants succeeded in downing a Russian passenger plane in retaliation, resulting in the deaths of 224 passengers.
As Germany has now decided to target ISIS, similar ISIS terror attacks on Germany cannot be ruled out. In the current U.S.-led coalition, most of the countries are dormant; they are not participating actively in the fight against ISIS for they fear retribution from terrorists.
All these countries are, in fact, hoodwinking the people in their countries and squandering public money on a notional war against ISIS. They have not even defined the term “defeat” for ISIS. How would they know that ISIS has been defeated?
There is not going to be any binary (zero or one) outcome of fight against ISIS. It is a perpetual war that U.S. is leading to meet its hidden objectives. And Germany is the new victim of the U.S. conspiracy. Do you agree?
