"Isis is a direct product of the West's inaction - they were able to step into the gap left and they used arm supplied by the west to fight Assad to do so.
This has enabled them to grow into a significant extremist force threatening numerous states." Jim Carroll

I would take your statement a further step. Isis is not the result of 'inaction" by the west. It is the result of purposeful action by the west to withdraw from the conflict, leaving the defense of the country to an immature government and an immature military. Also, either the west's intelligence services are pitiful in this modern world, or their accurate information was being deliberately ignored. I lean toward the latter scenario.

I use the word 'immature' in the sense of not being fully developed or prepared.
