The Caliphate had destroyed the Mediterrenean civilization and thrown Europe into medievial darkness through constant warfare against Europe. The question today is – what should replace the colonial map ?

Thank you “W” (your father was heads over you in the intelligence. “W” was probably at the end of the line when they handed out the “smarts.” Rummy, Cheney, Bolton, and the rest of the neo-cons in the Defense Department are up for nominations of the “Evil Genius” award. Rotten as humans to the core for allowing this condition.

Yes, the longest most expensive war in American history (arguably one of our biggest military failures of all time)….. should have gone on longer. That’s what we needed. Not 10 years of failure. 20 years of failure. Well go sign up. And take another bong rip.

Cheney likely orchestrated the 9/11 attacks to provide an excuse to get the wars going in the Middle East. The smoking gun is the collapse of Building 7.

Obama hastily withdrew American troops from Iraq for cheap popularity, knowing full well there was a dysfunctional government in Baghdad. It took ten years for postwar settlement in Japan and four years in Germany. Truman initiated postwar settlement and that was followed up by successive presidents. But Obama is not a statesman or an administrator like Truman and Eisenhower, but a mere demagogue. He ought to have divided Iraq among the Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds before withdrawing troops. The British partitioned India and created Pakistan to avoid future clashes between Muslims and Hindus. Oaama’s impotency led to the rise of ISIS. Iran was defeated by Iraq during Saddam’s time in the Iran-Iraq War. Now Obama has given Iraq to Iran on a silver platter. The entire Middle East is in total turmoil because of the foolish handling of political affairs by Obama. A ragtag ISIS is now occupying large swathes in Iraq, Syria, Libya, now Yemen.It could have been nipped in the bud by ordering boots on the ground. Now ISIS terrorists are owning oil fields, sophisticated American arms, tanks, armored vehicles and SUVs given to Iraq and Syria. Obama is responsible for the escalation of Islamic caliphate. Or is he abetting ISIS?
