I recently caught a story about a family of Marines in New Jersey who have gone to Iraq to help the Kurds fight ISIS. The father served in the Iraq War, and both of his sons served in Afghanistan. They got tired of watching ISIS slaughter people wholesale, so they decided to gear up and see what they could do to help. I think this is honorable and brave and heroic. I’m not in favor of sending US troops back to the region, but if individual Americans want to join the Not Peace Corps, I’m all for it. Someone needs to kill those maniacs, and it’s not like the Iraqi Army is going to do it.
Their trip is being funded by a group called Humanitarian Defense Abroad, which has helped dozens of military vets carry out similar missions. So, if you’re one of those people who thinks we should be back there to face this threat, there’s a way for you to go do that. You can drop what you’re doing and Humanitarian Defense Abroad will get you a one-way ticket to the suck. Any takers?
