While our commander in chief has historically been slow to get us into conflict with the Islamic State group, only recently being even willing to state that they were a threat, there are millions who they affect every day.
These men, women and children often have not had the luxury to deliberate prior to taking action, and many have chosen to flee their homes, unable or unwilling to fight a radical enemy.
But many have chosen to fight.
These freedom fighters have been made up of every faith. These fighters include members of both genders. These fighters come from many nationalities.
Of course, to many this may be common knowledge. What may not be so well known, however, is the manner in which the Kurds have fought back.
Many tools these Kurdish soldiers employ, including the weapons system shown in this video, have been donated by sovereign countries. They make the fight possible.
The weapon shown in this video, the German MILAN AGTM, is of relatively low consequence to a modern army such as the Germans; however, in a low-tech war against a large-scale terrorist organization, they have proven to be deadly.
Islamic State group members have proven that they are practitioners of total war — no man, woman, or child is safe. Although seen all throughout history, there simply is no moral excuse for waging a war on families whose only crime is thinking freely.
So the Kurds decided to put a stop to it.
Seen here is a band of freedom fighters destroying an ISIS truck bomb, saving countless lives.

Against weapons like these, the Islamic State group, which does not have much in the way of armor, will have a much harder time maintaining initiative in the Middle East.
The fight against the radical militants is more important now than ever. Share this on Facebook and Twitter and let us know how you think the United States should be involved.
