Comments on: Syria, Yemen, Libya — one factor unites these failed states, and it isn’t religion http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/11/30/syria-yemen-libya-one-factor-unites-these-failed-states-and-it-isnt-religion/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: davidriguez http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/11/30/syria-yemen-libya-one-factor-unites-these-failed-states-and-it-isnt-religion/#comment-1121963 Fri, 04 Dec 2015 16:31:00 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=45041#comment-1121963 If we are in War declare or undeclared. Then no one from the Middle East should be along to go to Europe or the USA. European and the USA do not know how to say no. Let alone a President who cannot lead in war or not.

Probably just a coincidence that the failed states omitted by the writer…. are also Muslim. Any time you mix an authoritarian patriarchal religion with 115 degree heat…. and throw in some goat meat….

You have a toxic mix of rage and delusion.

It is not a big step to take on arms and attack the ‘perceived enemy’
Religion often forms the basis for organizing the revolt .
There are always some exceptions where ‘groupies’ who are not directly affected want want to join in the ‘action’ eg France & Sydney

Outstanding work. Thank you.

Never mind the fact that all of the areas mentioned among the failed states are ALL semi-arid to completely arid desert regions, where droughts are common and have been for millions of years.
This entire opinion is a lipsticked pig, contrived in an effort to lend credence to the failing global warming argument.
Garbage.

A 2,000 year-old book talks about camels there. Now I will agree that the bible is fiction, but even fiction has to draw on reality. And the reality is…. camels. Not crocodiles or toucans or other swamp creatures. Camels.

The place sucks. Move.

All the Arab spring countries had unsustainable population growth rates and borderline feudal economies.

Germans, Australians, Russians, Americans.

These are helplessly backward countries. And yes, Islam is the problem. The Koran does not encourage innovation or progress in this world. Neither does the Bible really. Europe did not advance appreciably until they started ignoring the pope about 400 years ago.
