Letter to the Editor: We Are At War

When will America and the world wake-up? Radical Islam is at war with us. Radical jihadists want to kill us and set up a world-controlling caliphate. Their prime target, America.

What are President Barack Obama and Congress, including weak Republicans, doing to protect us? Very little. Why hasn't Congress declared war on ISIS? Why won’t Obama recognize radical Islam? Why won't Obama seek the total destruction of ISIS, instead of its containment?

Why did Obama release five more Gitmo prisoners after the Paris attacks? They are now reinforcements for jihadists in the Middle East. Why is our president and members of Congress promoting the migration of Syrian and other Middle East refugees into America? (100,000 per year)

They cannot be vetted, there is no database. Letting them in is stupid, suicidal and dangerous. ISIS is already in 50 states according to the FBI director.

It is time to protect America. We must name radical Islam as our enemy, declare war on ISIS and destroy it. Also, keep Gitmo open, close our borders for five years and stop the flow of Muslim refugees into the United States.

Furthermore, we should stop building mosques throughout the USA, including Goleta.

If President Obama and any politicians fail to protect us, they should be forced to quit. This is about our survival.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
