Subject: The Need To Fight Terror
The ISIS have killed 22 persons in the UK on May 23.2017. We all know the ISIS have been scourge to human civilization. They have been rooted out from their capital Raqqa. the have dug in have in their heels in a small part of Syria the ISIS have clearly been retreading, but they are still trying various methods to keep their forces ready. The attack in the UK has shown the ISIS have not been completely finished. This scourge to humatiy has to been tackled by all countries.
It has , therefore ,been very rightly put in the lead editorial in the Asian Age of May,24,2017. it is a small editorial and so let us read this together It is reproduced below :

Yesterday’s events showed two sides of 21st-century conflict. America’s Tomahawk strike against a Syrian air base unleashed the full force of a superpower against a rogue state. It was a proportionate use of military hardware in defiance of humanitarian principle. By contrast, the terror attack in Stockholm was crude and barbaric. This was the use of force to intimidate an innocent population. One man who has shown he will not be intimidated, however, is Donald Trump. There has been a shift in temperament in US foreign policy in the last week. It will have consequences for the whole world.
Everybody knows that the UN lacks teeth; the US and its allies remain the pre-eminent force for decency in the world.
President Trump campaigned as a non-interventionist but has been quietly governing in the opposite direction. Commanders enjoy greater discretion on the battlefield than they did under Barack Obama. Almost one drone strike has been ordered every day, five times the rate of President Trump’s predecessor, most of them aimed at targets in Yemen where the Saudis have US backing in their war against the Houthis.
How the Stockholm truck attack 00:36
This more aggressive approach is now being applied to global diplomacy. President Trump began the week by warning that if the Chinese will not cut the rogue state of North Korea down to size, he might do it for them. Then Russia’s ally, Bashar al-Assad, was accused of using chemical weapons against his own people. Mr. Obama had famously set red lines in Syria only to run away when they were crossed. President Trump let it be known that he was different. China’s President Xi Jinping had actually come to visit President Trump when US missiles struck Assad’s air base – and what message can the Asian leader have taken from the attack other than “America means business”? To paraphrase Clausewitz, war is diplomacy by other means.
The world faces a civilisational challenge. Combating terror requires the ability and willingness to use military’ power, event electronic intelligence and other means as well to take To quibble over using extreme tactics against terrorists can be self-defeating in a climate where a minuscule minority is out to destroy what we stand for in the modern world trying to feed even billion people and providing them a secure life to use every means possible to ferret the terrorists out should be our aim if we wish to preserve our way of life, with the freedom to choose which way we want to live . If that means we have to make some compromises with our cherished freedoms, that is a price we will have to pay. The world must stand up and fight terror unitedli, otherwise its very existence will be under threat
For some underunderstable reason, India as whole and the Indian Muslims in particular, do not want to join the Syrian War. Pakistan has also not showon willingness to join the fight against the ISIS. It Is however, because it is too small a Country to matter.
Well, Friends, whatever that may, be world powers will have to face the civilisational challenge in combating the kind of terrorism that is being continued by the ISIS .The recent ISIS attack in the UK has to be controlled by world powers to save the world, no matter whether India, as a whole, and the Indian Muslims in particular do not want to join the fight. We would rather emphasise that all concerned will have to fight the ISIS. That has to been killed to the finish It must be the duty of all countries, small of big. Necessary means and preparations will have to be devised.
