Sorry, I don't agree with the "Liberals don't believe in fighting jihadists" part. Neither
political side is genuinely trying to stop these
Wahhabi jihadists because neither is going after their financiers & the regimes that actually back them.
Repub & Dem presidential administrations support Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and the rest of the GCC. And the Western MIC makes lucrative arms deals with
them every year. And Western markets gladly encourage investment and trade between their nations and our own. Not to mention, it's kind of hard to
claim we're against them when we have military bases in and around their countries specifically to prop up their governments.
Oh yeah, and let's not get into how Western govts use those Wahhabi jihadist groups as proxy soldiers. Some glaring examples of this are the jihadist
proxy wars in Afghanistan (against Russia), in the Balkans War, in Chechnya, in Libya, and now in Syria. If you look at the timeline, this includes
times when both Repubs and Dems have had political power in Congress and as Presidents. In fact, the "terrorists" in Mali that the French attacked a
few years ago were our "freedom fighters" in Libya when we took down Qaddafi.
So no, it's not that us libs do or don't believe in fighting them. We just know the "fight" against them is a farce. And we also know they're being
used as pawns in the geo-political fights between Iran & the GCC, Israel and Iran, and the West & Russia. Not to mention, we also understand that
blowing up civilians in their countries only creates more backlash & more enemies. In other words, the current way of "fighting" them clearly isn't
working (plus I believe that killing civilians is equally wrong whether it's civilians in the West or civilians in the Middle East).
