This article is to inform the citizens of America, and or the UK, there is nothing here that gives the ISIS any kind of intel, except that the US and UK are coming for them. But then again, they all already know this because they are terrorists. They know their days are numbered.

I hope the american military kills every piece of shit member of ISIS. These terrorists think that everyone in the world is scared of them. No one is scared of you, you think you will be martyers, your not shit. Your worthless, your pathetic, and a bunch of losers who prey on innocent women and children because you dont have the balls to face a real man. YOUR DAYS ARE NUMBERED, THE GOOD GUYS ARE COMING FOR YOU. MAY YOU BURN IN HELL AND MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON YOUR SOULS.

Real

Zebah was a speck of sand. The United States is a free thinking Nation that responds to cruelty with an open hand. We offer forgiveness at first. Upon refusal, we close the hand and strike. Religion has no real power in the world verse a nation of free thinking people that allow for many idea’s, even those considered sacrilegious to zealots or fanatics.

Evan Bailey

We are-not the ones to whom are cruel it is ISIS and other terror organizations such as Boko Haram they are the ones responsible for atrocities and genocide of Men, Women And Children.
