Thread Name: BS: Caliphate
Subject: RE: BS: Caliphate
Jim, you have finally, completely lost the plot.
"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."

President Assad said right from the beginning that he was fighting fundamentalist extremists and nobody believed him. We supported his opponents.
Do you think the West's action in Iraq and Libya contributed to a "safer" world?
Billions wasted, hundreds of thousands killed and both countries are now suffering what amounts to genocidal civil war.

I warned many months ago of a Caliphate being set up, and it has come to pass.
The West is only to blame in that it is beginning to be controlled by "liberal" numbskulls with no idea who or what they are dealing with.    Mr T is correct when dealing with fundamentalist lunatics the only word that matters is survival.
