This is a great analysis of how certain US efforts to fight terrorism actually encourage and benefit terrorist groups. Should the US reduce their foreign aid to such governments?

    Note : I'm not writing this to oppose or support any religion, race, country or any thing else. I just want you people to see reality.. because that's a harsh one. And we need to wake up now. We need to see everything ourselves instead of being fooled by the media or other sources. There are good people all around the globe. People don't hate anyone.We all need peace... Don't you ? Then, why is world going this way ? It has been years... Years of listening voices of fear and hopelessness Governments claiming that ISIS belongs to Muslims, and Muslims are behind everything happening right now. That's not the end. These differences range from religions to the color of a born baby. But let's just take a look at some figures. Total Muslims in the World : Around 1.8 Billion (1.8 x 1000 Millions !) Total ISIS in Numbers: Around 0.2 Million Take the ratio. Yes that's the reality ! So, first thing ( if you're good at numbers ) is ISIS doesn't represent Muslims. Now there's something even more shocking. Here's a chart that lists everything in detail. You'll see that the destruction by US, Russian and other forces combined is more than the destruction by ISIS. So, who's the one to blame here ? Is it only ISIS ? Or there's something else going on as well? Why the super powers of the time aren't able to fight with this small force ?? Explore more resources/facts..... Make you conclusion and share your thoughts .

    Terrorism is defined as inciting terror, however it has more recently come to be defined as "the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims." (one of three Dictionary.com definitions vs. the Oxford Dictionary definition) This is sort of U.S. specific, but based on how you view/define terrorism, would you count last week's school shooting in Florida as an act of terrorism? It was the eighteenth school shooting in the United States this year and I've seen a lot of articles and social media posts debating whether or not it should be considered terrorism (and if whether or not that distinction is based on the race of the perpetrator, especially when covered by major media outlets). I personally am still debating this with myself and am not sure, but it's an interesting thought-- what do you guys think?
