Jordan Matson, a 28-year-old from Sturtevant, Wisconsin is a surprising recruit to a group of Kurdish fighters battling the Islamic State group, but the former U.S. Army soldier says he's not going home "until the fight is finished." (Feb. 4)

I admire him.
Many throughout history have done the same fighting fascists in Spain and such.
It is his right to do so and I hope he is doing much for US and Kurdish relations.

Interesting but I really think he needs to back off and let the governments handle this because its not his fight. I know his intentions are good but if he is captured I shudder just thinking of what IS would do to an American hostage. If they could kill their own with such brutality imagine what they would do to an American.
Seriously joining a rag tag militia to take on a heavily armed/trained/experienced army of terrorists is not a good idea.
