As the global ISIS threat continues, Retired Maj. Gen. Paul Eaton arrived in Cincinnati April 1 to address how exactly ISIS began and what America can do to stop it.
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, also known as ISIS, ISIL and Daesh, continues to rampage through the Middle East, dismantling families and government institutions. Within four months after its rise in June of 2014, ISIS had murdered over 5,500 people, according to Newsweek. Just this Tuesday, it was discovered that a mass grave in Tikrit exceeded 3,000 victims, Newsweek reported.
Eaton attended a dinner in Xavier University’s Conaton Board Room led by the Foreign Policy Leadership Council in order to raise awareness about the ISIS threat and what kind of strategies the United States should conduct to defeat them.
Eaton was tasked with training and preparing the Iraqi armed forces beginning in 2003. After retirement, Eaton followed the course of the Middle East as Senior Advisor of the National Security Network think tank in Washington, D.C.
