    I think this piece is very controversial. It shows a side of the U.S. that many people don't like to see. It also is true in some parts, but scary in others. The thought of having a 30 years war is awful and would take many millions of lives, American and non- American.

    I found this propaganda extremely helpful because it shows how our government is in some way helping ISIS, and that sometimes we need to question the choices of our government.

    I think this is beneficial because it is educated people about such a relevant and destructive problem in today's society. It associates very negative word with terrorism, and that will propel and inspire people to fight against them.

    I think this propaganda is a little beneficial because it gives us background on how ISIS started and their thinking. I think this brings people aware to ISIS and educates them on how awful it is.

    I think this is beneficial in terms that it's educational and gives people background and information on ISIS so people are educated before they make any decisions or talk about what is the best solution to deal with this.

    I think this is more beneficial because it gives some background information on isis, so people know the truth behind what it is instead of hearing about what it is from different news sources.
