Sergeant Patrick Maxwell of the marine corps departed from the service a couple of years ago. He was given an honorable discharge when he left. However, he left the country and flew to the Middle East early this year to face the ISIS alone.
According to the Texas Standard, “Back in the U.S., the debate continues about how best to deal with the terrorist group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.” “But for some veterans the time for talk is over. Unknown numbers of American war vets have taken up with foreign fighters battling ISIS,” the report concluded.
When asked why he wanted to face ISIS alone, Sergeant Patrick Maxwell said:
“I’m very libertarian in my beliefs and I don’t think we need to be committing U.S. boots to the ground to do another long war like that. But myself as a private citizen — if I want to go take a vacation and shoot some terrorists in the process, that should be my own business.”
Marine corps opts to fight ISIS alone.
This type of action is neither new nor uncommon, especially for military veterans like Maxwell. Former Rep. Ron Paul has suggested a similar intervention to help deal with terrorist without causing a full-blown world war. The idea is guided by the primary philosophy called “letters of marque and reprisal,” which enables the government to award prize money to individuals who can capture or kill high profile criminals, such as the ISIS members.

The “letters” were first practiced by pirates to prevent “war on piracy”. Paul saw the potential of this scheme to successfully fight terrorists, and enable individuals to earn a huge amount of money.
