Training Muslims To Fight ISIS Is A Disaster After Two American Soldiers Were Shot Dead By A Muslim While Training Him To Fight ISIS

President Obama is really opening the gates of death for our troops. A Jordan officer has opened fire at US-funded security training facility on the outskirts of the Jordanian capital, Amman, local authorities said, adding that two Americans and one South African national were killed in the attack.


The Muslim shooter, Anwar Muhammad Abu Zeid also wounded two Americans and four Jordanians, one of them critically, said the spokesman, Mohammed Momani, AP reports.

According to Gulf News, the incident was carried out by a Jihadi. Anwar Muhammad Abu Zeid carried this mission because that day was the anniversary of the bombing in Amman in 2005 by Al-Qaeda organized by Abu Mus’ab Zarqawi which killed 60 people.

The attacker was a senior co-trainer who had the rank of captain, a Jordanian security source said, as cited by Reuters.

The attack took place at Mwaqar camp, funded by Washington – a facility for training Iraqi and Palestinian special security forces.

The United States has started training Syrian opposition fighters in Jordan who will be deployed to fight in the multinational military effort against the so-called Islamic State, according to reports.

Besides Jordan, the exercises will begin soon in Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey, the Associated Press reported Thursday, citing US officials

According to AP, more than 3,750 Syrian fighters have signed up for US-led training, and roughly one tenth have already been vetted, unnamed American officials are cited as saying. Exercises could begin as soon as this week in Turkey, CNN added, and 400 military trainers from the US have already arrived either there or in Jordan to begin preparations.

While the White House maintains that US troops will not engage on the ground with ISIS fighters in Iraq and Syria, legislation authorized by Congress last September set aside $500 million requested by President Barack Obama to go towards training about 5,000 Syrian fighters over the course of the year to go up against the group, with more troops being equipped through 2017.

When the measure passed in the fall, Obama thanked lawmakers for the “speed and seriousness” demonstrated in approaching the issue and praised the “strong bipartisan support in Congress.” According to AP, the US has since reviewed the volunteer fighters to make sure officials wouldn’t be training extremists.

Meanwhile, a Pentagon spending bill currently being considered in the House of Representatives calls for putting another $715 million towards aiding anti-ISIS efforts during the next fiscal year. If approved in its current form, the 2016 National Defense Authorization Act would allocate funds for training Kurdish Peshmerga fighters and Sunni tribal security forces if Baghdad falls short of Washington’s demands with regards to ethnic and sectarian minorities being represented in the new Iraqi government.

According to AP, members of moderate Syrian opposition groups will be trained in basic military equipment and skills, “including firearms, communications and command and control abilities,” by coalition forces led by the US.

The situation is embarrassing for Jordan especially that the victims were American and the one who carried it out was a captain in Jordan’s security forces and it was the second attack in which a Jordanian executes others. It was Ahmad Al-Qassasmeh who killed seven Israeli female soldiers in 1997.

    You don’t want to give them anything they can use against you because you have to assume that they will use it against you.

    America in its pride is bringing judgment against itself. Rather than seeking and trusting the Lord, it has already decided with whom it wants to form alliances with. God’s hand is stretched out over all the nations for His purpose which is purposed concerning the whole earth. Still, God is calm, quietly looking from His dwelling like clear heat in sunshine, like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest…

        And our Christian soldiers are paying the price. It makes me sick and furious and sad. I hope a regime change for the better is coming soon.

            What can we do to affect the change sooner? They are being persecuted for their Christian faith. And they’re forcing the acceptance of homosexuality..which God Himself condemns the practice of and Paul says it leads to all kinds of evils… Yet we want to give them charge of our nuclear arsenals. What could possibly go wrong there? Just about everything. Again.

            That’s why we got to get this upcoming election right. Can’t afford mistake.

    In the primaries I won’t vote Trump but rest assured if he wins the primaries I will vote for him, staying home is the same as voting for clinton or sanders. I have to pray that God will sway our ppl to his way of life.
