Yeah, I said I was going to write about Seymour Hersh's article on Osama bin Laden. But then this came up.

Abu Sayyaf, the "CFO" of ISIS, has been killed by Delta Force in Southeastern Syria. www.thedailybeast.com/articles…

Nice job, Delta Force! 

I've been following the rise of ISIS since January 2014. I first came across them in a BBC article detailing in-fighting between Syrian rebel groups. Suddenly, as if out of nowhere, the name "ISIS" showed up. As the months went by, it soon became clear that ISIS was no ordinary jihadist group. They were a force to be reckoned with, even though the world really ignored them until June 2014. When ISIS suddenly conquered almost half of Iraq, I knew we had made a terrible mistake by not paying attention. 

But even after all of the horror and atrocities they had perpetrated, I never could have imagined they were capable of doing what they did to the Yazidi people in 2014. Why is it that it took a full-scale genocide for the world to decide that action had to be taken?

But now, things are finally starting to turn around. ISIS is rapidly losing territory in Iraq, suffered a humiliating defeat at Kobani, and how their leaders are dropping like flies. 

ISIS is doomed. They may be strong now, but they are losing strength. It may take six months, a year, maybe multiple years - but ISIS will be destroyed.

I am an Atlanta-born, Sandy Springs-raised guy who dreams of being a professional writer. I am also an occasional actor/stand-up comedian. I am currently writing a espionage-political thriller. While I am not what most other people consider an artist, I seem to have a gift for literature. You probably will not see me posting anything like what Son-Neko would do, but I hope story will be enough for all of you. Actually, when it comes to art, think of somebody as good as Son-Neko and then imagine the opposite. Yeah, that's me. This is going to be more of a blog, to be honest. What I hope is that people will see my work and spread the word. On this site, I will post things like fanfics, short stories, and other non-canon work that you will see no-where else. The biggest source of fan fiction you will see from me is Code Lyoko, in my opinion the best TV show ever made. I will also do fanfics of things like Alphas, Burn Notice, and other things. Besides fan fiction, there will also be original work. My work will either be one-post short stories, or an ongoing serial, depending upon my mood. I hope you enjoy :). BTW, I am not a redneck, despite the name. Also, the picture above is me in Washington DC with my congressman Dr. Tom Price (R). I may disagree with his views, but I was still honored to meet him.

YOU WATCH ALPHAS???? FINALLY, SOMEONE WHO KNOWS!

Sorry. None of my friends have ever watched it. They don't know the pain of that last episode.

We got screwed by them cancelling it on a cliffhanger.

I was so devastated I gave up on an Alphas fan fiction I was writing at the time.
