The two beheaded US journalists to ISIS are what the twin towers were to Al-Qaeda

terrorism in the minds of millions around the world. It also marked its downfall. It is the day in which Americans finally and truly awoke to the true face of terrorism and decided to take serious action against the terrorist organization.  In other words, September 11 marked the beginning of the end for Al-Qaeda.

Fast forward to the summer of 2014 and we see ISIS repeating the same mistake by taking on the US directly.

In 2001, Al-Qaeda made the fatal mistake of attacking the US directly by hitting the twin towers and other US-based targets. In 2014, ISIS is repeating the same mistake by taking on the Americans head-on.  It is a red line they were dared not to reach or cross.  The beheading of freelance photojournalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff was akin to attacking the twin towers in New York. ISIS is no longer just attacking Assyrian Christians, Shi’tte, Kurds, Yazidis or anyone that doesn’t agree with their sick agenda in Iraq and Syria. They are now taking on the US and that could very well-fortunately-spell the beginning of the end of ISIS. Good riddance!

It shouldn’t have come to this. Two US journalists didn’t have to be viciously beheaded for the incompetent Obama administration to finally get serious with ISIS. Just like in 2001, where the World Trade Center, along with 3000 lives didn’t have to be lost for the US to awake and finally start taking Al-Qaeda seriously.

As always, it is always better to be late than never.
