Conclusion - How the MidEast was won.
Right now you are probably wondering, 'whats with all the rambling, whats the point of it all'. Id love to have provided a dozen or more sources, and
a more cohesive picture of what Ive been seeing. Often in the past with Islamic extremism I was very quick to say, Islam, for it to be viewed properly
by Western people's, for it to be legitimized, it needs to publicly declare these extreme acts wrong, object to these horrible crimes against people.
Do something, say something.
And maybe it's more of the media's fault, although Im not entirely sure. In the past there has been some push back from the reasonable ones who mirror
the radicals, but a lot of people have never felt Islam has stood up enough against the radical sects.
Muslims should declare Jihad against Terrorism - Islamic
I could provide dozens and dozens of links similar to this. And while in past instances of terror vs western nations or western interests, it
possible to find the odd Islamic cleric who supported these deplorable acts, and even is today, the number seems fewer. The Muslims who
identify with Daesh are few and far between, and finally there is a vocal number publicly stating this and making waves, enough for them to be heard
across the world.
Which begs the question is it really something that naturally developed around the world, the current situation. In a way it's almost too perfect, and
it was almost the biggest blunder [or was the biggest blunder] the West has every engaged in. This last decade and a half has been a nightmare
politically, spurring hate throughout the ME, directed at the West. From 9/11, first sympathy rained down on the US, then confusion, as the leaders
pushed not only a reasonable retaliation, to purge Afghanistan of rebel elements, but as it continued into Iraq. In fact it polarized an entire
country against each other, and almost the entire world against one nation.
Eventually the West returned home, though it's bases in the ME were bigger and bolder than before they had gone in. more and more political
connectedness to the region. With a new subversive war against Libya and a subversive proxy war vs Assad, the region began to destabilize again.
Around the same time a new stronger terror group is being formed. IS, or ISIS, or Daesh. And when this new uprising of radical Islam began to take
hold, the arrogance of its leaders made regular Muslims stand up and say 'That's not our Caliphate, these people do not speak for us'.
When the world looked around to who was going to help with it, it's almost as if the Elephant in the room is, 'well, you did just leave the region and
all, and look how that turned out.' It certainly wasn't expected for the US to go back
into the region. Hell, the President that came after the
War President, was partially elected on a plan to remove troops form the region.
So in a perfect turn of events, we have a boondoggled war, one that sent back a ton of work to key oil contracting companies. A large base of
operations built in the region. Two [ME] Presidents with ties back to the West. Yet enough hate from locals that a rising radical group would have
little trouble enlisting young recruits.
More recently the World, in a state of apathy towards this problem in Syria and surrounding countries, of course doesn't want to call on the World
Police, look what they just finished in Iraq/Aghanistan. No one wants that, not unless it gets really bad, unless it's dire.
The region is so bad that any normal life is impossible by the local people. They begin to flee, and bring with them the problems of a country
escaping its shadows. The wheels turn, we have large attacks happening up close to Western allies in the middle of Europe, Europe is furious. The
right wing voices are pushing against the refugees, pushing for war or drastic measures, not so drastic to alienate the common pragmatic. The left
wing is looking for solutions, to help those in need and even offering up useless solutions. And suddenly the West is starting to look like a good
solution again. By whatever means they will participate.
The world will always be a stage, theatre of the grandest design. Sometimes I wonder how much is entirely by design and what is decided on the fly. Is
it improvised and altered as they go along, or was it all relatively planned and executed not far off the design.
The way things look to be unfolding, it seems like Daesh will continue, even if its just a movement. But people seem to be coming together, the right
wing is backing down just a bit, enough to open arms to refugees, and the left is stepping up just enough to potentially authorize another war. They
just need a stronger villain. Quite close, almost there, you have most of Islam agreeing. You just need a little more.
If Daesh became just a bit more powerful, if refugees could be seen as just a bit more human. Just a little more integration, a society which has
merged from all the worlds' middle class, where social and racial barriers are broken down, and there are bad guys everyone can finally agree on. At
first, its Daesh and similar outcasts -anyone who adopts them, and then it's enemies against the new modern world. The world where every race is
But with the recent track history the likelihood of Western troops going back on the ground is slim, so very slim. Unless of course the people asked
for it. Maybe the masses would pressure their governments to do something, to spur action and consequence, if only to stop the influx of all these
refugees, to prevent terror from being wrecked across the foreign lands as well as home. If nothing is done soon, this is going to get much
As Richard Branson speaks about a new global drug policy
and the signs can be seen around the world, illegal narcotics are in favour of being decriminalized, it makes you wonder, 'why give up
this control?' the UN especially, has pushed world governments for the last 100 years to instil this local control against the populace, in the form
of bastardizing such a normal human act of consumption of food/chemicals/medicine.
With CISPA passing,
it makes you wonder if this
change in thought, this paradigm shift is entirely planned. One thing leads to another to another, all interconnected by some means, even if its just
the smallest amount, even if it wasn't planned exactly as this, not entirely, but there was some rough design events have adhered to as they
One means of control has been lifted, while new technological forms of control are installed. The bridge to multiculturalism is being strung up across
the world, as much as possible, while displaced cultures spread with fervour. Enemies are beginning to look like real enemies again, and Islam, is
beginning to look like any other religion, with Daesh as its weird offshoot, the KKK or WBC to the Christian opposite. Eventually, a world of mixed
middle class, all rooting for the same leaders, all jeering the same enemies.
A new world.
