The Middle East and ISIS

France has now escalated the fight against ISIS after the recent terrorist attacks on French soil. France’s President Francois Hollande announced that the French aircraft carrier “Charles de Gaulle” will be sent to the region in September.

French President Hollande said in a televised statement:

“The Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier will arrive in the region by the end of September. It and our Rafale aircraft will allow (us) to intensify our strikes against Islamic State positions in Syria and Iraq.”

France will also send artillery to Iraq in August to support the Iraqi army.

“The Defense Council and I made a decision this morning to provide Iraqi forces with artillery as a part of anti-Daesh efforts. The artillery will be delivered in August Hollande said.

However, France “will not deploy ground troops” Hollande said.

ISIS leadership goes by the age-old prophecy that the final battle between Islam and those opposing it will take place in Dabiq, Syria. Apparently, the west is the enemy. But don’t worry, western political leadership is not concerned. They seem to be totally oblivious to the danger. Only the citizens are alarmed.

Prediction: The citizens will be heard during the coming elections. Expect major upsets as the world moves to the right.
