” A local veteran has put together a combat team to fight terrorists in the Middle East. Now, they’re getting ready to deploy in a few months.
Action News first told you about this story last month on the day Veterans Against ISIS: Offensive Wing was formed.
Founder and Army veteran Sean Rowe’s goal was to find several veterans willing to fight the terror group, and he found more than a dozen veterans are willing to fight.
Almost half of them are from Florida and Rowe said a lot of people reached out to him after our first story aired. They all have a military background and are ready to return to the battle field to fight ISIS.
Rowe said he was looking for a few good men to join his group Veterans Against ISIS: Offensive Wing and he’s found them. Just don’t call them mercenaries.
“ I hate that term. We’re not doing this for money; we’re volunteering our time,” Rowe said.”

” As an estimated 2,000 expatriates from the United States and other Western nations join the Islamic State to fulfill a passion for conflict or jihad, a much smaller number of Westerners have signed up to fight against the militants. The latest: members of a biker gang from Holland.
The head of Never Surrender, Klaas Otto, told a Dutch radio station that three of its members went to Iraq to join Kurdish fighters battling the Islamic State, also known as ISIL or ISIS.”
“Ron from The Netherlands has joined the Kurds to exterminate the rodents of [ISIS]”
” The gang touts a quote from Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel on its Facebook page: “I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides.”
The story was first reported Wednesday by NPR.
The bikers join others outraged over the brutality displayed by Islamic State fighters, who have seized wide swaths of territory in Iraq and Syria. A former U.S. soldier from Racine, Wis., joined Kurdish fighters in northern Iraq and was wounded in a mortar attack.
” I couldn’t just sit and watch Christians being slaughtered anymore,” Jordan Matson, 28, told USA TODAY last week from a hospital bed in Derike, Syria. “These people are fighting for their homes, for everything they have.” “

… HOW THE ROMNEY CAMPAIGN SUPPRESSED ITS OWN VOTE
” As Republicans try to explain their Election Day losses in terms of policy, tactics, and strategy, one factor is emerging as the essential difference between the Obama and Romney campaigns on November 6: the absolute failure of Romney’s get-out-the-vote effort, which underperformed even John McCain’s lackluster 2008 turnout. One culprit appears to be “Orca,” the Romney’s massive technology effort, which failed completely.
A source within the Romney campaign agreed to share his reflections on Project Orca with Breitbart News:
It’s easy to point fingers after a loss and I wouldn’t normally do it, but consider what happened.
Project Orca was supposed to enable poll watchers to record voter names on their smartphones, by listening for names as voters checked in. This would give the campaign real-time turnout data, so they could redirect GOTV resources throughout the day where it was most needed. They recruited 37,000 swing state volunteers for this.”
