News2share contributor and political commentator Jon-Christopher Bua reflects on the recent death of Peter Kassig, and discusses the White House’s response to the most recent ISIL video and their position on Syria. While it is clear that the president does not consider Bashar al-Assad’s presidency legitimate, it remains yet to be seen how the international community will deal with ISIL’s foothold in Syria as well as Syria’s current leaders. Jon-Christopher also discusses ISIL’s advances and the enormous danger the world would face in the event that ISIL ever accessed a nuclear weapon.
