One extremist went unnoticed, and?


He is the only one discussed because he was the founding father of ISIS, but you truly think there were no extremist in Iraq during Sadam's reign.



Libya is another perfect example of the west toppling a regime where terrorists filled the void.


When the leader of a country admits to being part of a terrorist act...it already is filled with terrorists.



Cheney knew it back in the early 1990's. He knew exactly what would happen if we removed Saddam and here we are. The picture doesn't get any clearer than that but feel free to blame anyone but the aggressors. Embrace the ignorance and we shall agree to completely disagree.


Except as you said it wasn't until we invaded Iraq that they started...except it was started before that and not because the US took Hussein out of power.

And yet you blame the US for ISIS when it is well known how they became the entity they are today...But I see if someone doesn't agree that the US is behind ISIS they are embracing ignorance...truly amazing.



Your a fool if you think the invasion of Iraq made the world a safer place!

It was about MONEY nothing more for a few elite people.

Iraq was not perfect under saddam, it was a crap hole. But the invasion certainly made it worse, a lot worse.

Yes it did, as it opened the door for those who had the will to fight against the US.

I am not talking about any government...the question was is it an invasion if asked for help?

Where in that simple question did I say anything about any government...I didn't.

So we aided, funded, armed Islamic Jihadists to remove Gadaffi, destroying the entire country in the process, and now we need to send in troops to fight those same Islamic Jihadists?

I swear the people in power making these decisions have very large stock portfolios in the arms industry and are complete psychopaths. The very same people that created the problem now say we must send our own citizens over there to fix things again. How about someone in the military actually grows a pair and airdrops Cameron and all the others who made this mess in the first place right into the middle of Tripoli?

many of those now fleeing across the Med are a direct result of the wars we have instigated in their own countries, but never let a manufactured opportunity go to waste. Hell, if a few grunts on the ground get offed, it's a small price to pay for profits.

If that is the way thing worked sure. Of course I am sure you are aware that the Jihadist that are causing the problems were not in Libya during the war they came later on the run from the French and African forces in Mali. We did not start the Libyan civil war and only got involved as entire cities were about to be massacred. If we had done nothing likely Libya we be seeing intense fighting with Egyptian and Chadian forces involved as well. What we have in Libya is not good, although it is slowly moving that way but, it better than if we had done nothing.

It was not our war to begun with.

Why should we go around policing these country's as it just makes us a target.

Now Libya is royally FUBAR up and half the country wants British and US blood so now we have to go in and fix that.

If we had just kept out chances are they would have been content to just massacre each other and not us as well.

I don't care what these barbarians do to each other, it there business. I dont like them targeting me with there barbaric ways.

Except you can blame the west for the creation of ISIS.


No those who think ISIS is a conspiracy believe that...those who know don't.



The west moved in and totally destabilized the region they helped to start a civil war in Syria and removed Saddam Hussein from power this led to the creation of ISIS.


I forgot it's all the US fault because we are to blame for the worlds problems...have you ever thought those problems were always there they just used this to become more of the problem.



Had it not been for these actions ISIS would have never gained the power they have now. Reagan was right when he said we don't understand the politics of that region.


Reagan was right, but that doesn't prove the US was behind ISIS and we are the reason they are there...that would be a bit naive to think that.

Are you totally ignorant of history? The west went in and killed the people that kept groups like ISIS from even starting.

It's just so that they comply with WTO and IMF standards...

Just like Ghadaffi was removed for speaking about making his own currency.

ISIS is just the elite's tool.

Except those groups survived in those countries before we went into them, or are you saying they didn't and just popped up when we went into them?

Groups like ISIS have been around...maybe not as bold and big as they are now...but they have been around.

And history shows that...are you that ignorant of history?

So why should have we stirred up a hornets nest? At least there was some sense of control when Saddam Hussein was in power. We had no right to invade Iraq in the first place! This isn't our neighborhood, and those who feel it's a direct threat to their country should be dealing with it.

They were around but were kept in check. We came in and opened it up for them to spread like a cancer.

Terrorists were definitely fighting in the civil war and enjoying the bombing done by NATO to Libyan forces. The leader of the rebel group admitted Al Qaeda were in his ranks but assured the world they were "good" Muslims. As the bombing continued terrorists were able to free their fellows who were locked up in Libyan prisons. The infestation of extremists in Libya rose when NATO joined a fight they had no business being a part of.

So we have ISIS in a multi-year struggle against yet another country that doesn't support US corporate capitalism and people still don't understand that ISIS is a dog trained and employed to kill innocent people by the US and UK.

Perhaps people need to be reminded that we have seen this all before, the Afghanistan taliban was secretly created and funded by US with funds through a friendly proxy (Pakistani ISI). After the Taliban had done their job they were demonized to open the door for a full invasion for the end game, implementation of puppet government.

Western media = US corporate capitalism propaganda. It supports the genocide of woman and children for profit. Please don't be fooled by the constant poo they rub your faces in.

British Special Forces "Dressing Up" As ISIS...What Could Go Wrong?....

I hate war..............

I was 100% against Iraq, Libya bombing and opposed Syria.....


But unfortunately I support this..... ISIS has to be annihilated. The war was already started by them and they are a threat to the UK and our allies.

Good luck to the troops and the friends I have that will be deployed. Good shooting and kill as many of the ISIS bastards as you can


Then why do you have a soldier working for an evil empire as your avatar?
