The Islamic militant group ISIS, formerly known as Al-Qaeda in Iraq, and recently rebranded as the so called Islamic State, is the stuff of nightmares. They are ruthless, fanatical, killers, on a mission, and that mission is to wipe out anyone and everyone, from any religion or belief system and to impose Shari'ah law. The mass executions, beheadings and even crucifixions that they are committing as they work towards this goal are flaunted like badges of pride, video taped and uploaded for the whole world to see. This is the new face of evil.
Would it interest you to know who helped these psychopaths rise to power? Would it interest you to know who armed them, funded them and trained them? Would it interest you to know why?
its simple really , "NO US INVASION , NO ISIS" "NO US WEAPONS IN SYRIA,NO FUNDED ISIS"
Guilty by association refers to the attribution of guilt without any proof on individuals solely for the reason that those whom they associate with are guilty.
The simple fact is that there is no proof, whatsoever, that the USA has been directly funding ISIS in Syria. Rather, it is general knowledge that they are funding moderate rebel

Iraq , Destabilized by US, FACT
Syria, Destabilized by US , FACT
Should the US be held responsible "indirectly" funding ISIS ?

Doesn't matter, you could be IsraHelli or one of those Canadian Harper lovers,
DISCLAIMER, not that there is anything wrong with any of it LOL
My disclaimer was funny admit it
It's not an excellent thread when the OP takes a simplistic approach of the entire situation.
The problem is that many of those moderate rebels who received training, funding and arms, have since defected to ISIS, taking all their knowledge with them. The same # happened in Libya. The providing of arms is increasingly becoming difficult, as ISIS now controls much of the Syrian/Turkish border.
