Before I even get into this post, I need to say two things. First off, my thoughts and prayers go out to Lt. Muath al-Kaseasbeh’s family and friends. You will be forever in my heart. Lieutenant Muath al-Kaseasbeh, you were a fantastic pilot and I thank you for your service in the military, you will be greatly missed. Second, I for one, am not fully against using violence. I only believe that it’s necessary when you are being threatened, beaten up or someone has a loved one as a hostage.
Now, recently a lot of people in the Middle East have been shot down, beheaded, and with the news of the lieutenant being burned alive. Yes, I’m angry. I believe that this whole situation is getting out of hand. Don’t you?
King Abdullah of Jordan, has taken matters into his own hands and has vowed to take revenge for the death of the pilot. Personally, I’m on the King’s side. That pilot gave his life for his country, King, and family. I respect that. If I was in the King’s position, I would do exactly what he is doing.
Think about this; what if someone killed your mom, dad, brother or sister? What would you do? Would you take action or would you just sit on your butt and not do anything? For me, I’m extremely protective of my family and friends. I would hunt down those who had hurt my loved ones and torture them. I wouldn’t necessarily kill them, no. I would keep them alive, make them live the rest of their lives with the guilt of killing my loved one, also they would have quite a few broken bones as well.
As I said at the beginning of the post, I don’t agree with being violent but I only see it as a necessary thing when someone has taken a loved one. And that’s how I view this whole situation. I cried when I heard about the Lieutenant dying. Being part Middle Eastern, I was offended by the entire situation. ISIS’s has gotten way out of hand, and I for one, think they need to be dealt with.
This is how I see the entire situation.
I believe that if I want a utopian society, then the extremists should be dealt with. I don’t need some extremist group killing off every other person in this world. I want to live in a civilized world, where everyone can feel safe in the streets and live without fear.
Wouldn’t you want to feel safe?
So in conclusion, I am on King Abdullah’s side and agree with what he is doing. I wish I was able to go to the memorial for Lt. Muath al-Kaseasbeh. But since I was unable to, I will just continue to send love and prayers to his family.
