That is why ISIS is comfortable there. If we want peace in that region then we should allow people of different religions and different nationalities live separately. American and European and Russian governments do not understand local realities in the Middle East, Afghanistan, and Libya. That is why American and other interventions bring only more wars and more instabilities. So called War on Terror brings only death, destruction, and more terror.

I’m glad they aren’t ours.

All the Western world is for legal rights and legal protections
of a true justice system of laws, not men , laws. All individual human-beings each one has precious value — and each one should be free to feel and believe and think and act as free human-being without any fears.
The good free people of this world will gladly always welcome Chinese peoples everywhere. Stand beside us now China and all chinese people.
The good and beautiful of the world — the best is yet to come .

Work on destroying Raqqa, not taking over territory. Isis will simply move leaving us a mess. Bomb actual military targets if we must but scatter the flock.

The U.S. is fighting a domestic media war. It would be nice to restore a semblance of a municipal government there, and to have peace in Syria, and peace on earth..

Assuming the hostages in Raqqa are non-Shia, why not ask the Sunni leaders in the region to form a loose oversight (federal) government to support the local city-state jurisdictions regained from ISIS? Who says the territories have to be contiguous? The new Federal government could support the cities in “national” security and law along with a Marshall Plan – like economic stimulus package, while the cities would retain jurisdiction over local cultural and economic projects.

These lowlifes deserve the worst. Let the people go a them. An example needs to be set with these inhuman savages that this will never be repeated again.
