Hmm internal politics at its worst, tribal groups have been internal fighting for decades there. And now sometimes one is sponsored by outside forces and sometimes the other. There pretty much sealing there death certificate. But ultimately it like the whole religion and countless spouting to Allah is just an excuse something they can hide behind. If you notice in the vids there only killing the opposition there fellow countrymen, and not the foreigners, most of them should be gone by now, and those that are there, are merely valuable hostages probably. Basically how to take over rule 101, you dont go to war with foreign forces, you got to war with your citizens, and keep them in line establishing power by any means required in other countries other more electoral winning the populous to your cause ways are required, but in Iraq it seems not. Base by base, country by country, landmass by landmass there cleaning house in various territories in the middle east, all for there rise to power a one nation extreme Islamic front and power. And all thanks to who?
Who know maybe in time they will graduate and come to the level the US and other are at, then they can each pick an animal a donkey or an elephant, or maybe a camel and camelspider to better suit the area and populous. And then they can go at it in a more sophisticated way, in the political forum. Mud slinging and public image killing is but the evolution of all that, and of group and tribe dynamics, then maybe we can have the Maliki supporters pick a color and the other the so called leader of Isis who's name extremely long and his supporters go at it on the political forum, instead of you know shooting each other in the back of the head, or that whole cutting heads off thing. But even after all that it will still leave the hands of the strings behind all this.
Oh yes your political system just may be the prime subject that human nature can evolve and strive to. How far the human race has come indeed.
