Some analysts believe ISIS did not murder Foley to get Obama to stop attacking them, but rather to draw the United States deeper into their regional and potentially worldwide war.”

Opinion: I listened to James Foley’s brief speech prior to his execution late yesterday and could not escape the notion that this just might be another Bowe Bergdahl scenario.

In his obviously pre-planned speech, Foley spoke directly to his bother John (US Air Force) and cautioned him to “think about who made the decision to bomb Iraq and kill those people.’ Foley said he wished he could see his family again, and added “I wish I wasn’t American.”

And his executioner was British.

What is driving British men to join the Islamic State?

In this video, Shiraz Maher, expert on radicalisation, warns that young British men are being seduced by high-profile apparent victories for ISIS and desire to be at the forefront of what they regard as a holy war.

And it’s not just Brits:

U.S. intelligence, law enforcement, and military officials have for months declined to discuss the possibility that Americans had joined the Islamic extremist group. In fact, FBI Director James Comey said last week that his agency cannot be certain of even the range of Americans who’ve traveled to Syria.

Investors Business Daily Op-Ed: “When the president removes troops from Afghanistan next year, the Taliban won’t have to take weapons off the army, as Islamic State terrorists did in Iraq. They’ll already have them — $626 million worth.”

America is leaving behind a security force of largely Taliban infiltrators with U.S. military training, intelligence and weapons. A new U.S. government audit reveals that more than 900 weapons we’ve supplied to Afghan security forces have gone missing, including 740 M16 rifles and 112 M23 pistols.

Opinion: Afghanistan is known as the graveyard of empires having a reputation for turning ambitious military ventures into humiliating and frustrating defeats.  In the past two centuries, both Soviet and British invaders have been forced into bloody retreats from Afghanistan and the US is next.

President Obama and the progressive left called Afghanistan the “goodwar” mostly using it as a tool with which to criticize President Bush’s invasion of Iraq. Like Iraq, the withdrawal from Afghanistan absent victory will come back to haunt us – setting the stage for the nation’s role in the war of Gog and Magog.

Prophetically, Afghanistan lines up with Ezekiel 38:5 as it was once a part of the Persian Empire and will join a great horde (Ezekiel 38:13-15in a surprise attack to take plunder from Israel when it is living in peace and safety:  “Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya are with them, all of them with shield and helmet.”
