Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
Alexis de Tocqueville
it's the Obama doctrine on display.
help insurgents take control of non-threatening countries by supporting them with u.s. air power (Egypt & Libya) ... and don't use u.s. air power to support a non-threatening country against insurgents.
works well, doncha think?
ISIS: The first terror group to build an Islamic State? - CNN.comThe Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has thrived and mutated in the security vacuum that followed the departure of the last U.S. forces from Iraq and the civil war in Syria.
Its aim is to create an Islamic state across Sunni areas of Iraq and in Syria.
Remember Obama sez 'we are not at war with islam.' This may be the first 'terror group' to build an islamic state, but it is certainly not the first nor the last 'group' to do so as we have witnessed over the last 6 years of the Obama administration. Go back and watch Obama's 'outreach' to the 'islamic world.' I think that speech was his signal to them to proceed. I believe Obama has been assisting the establishment of those islamic controlled governments.
Honestly, I don't know how you can force people who gave up on themselves 1000 years ago and really like living in the Dark Ages into the current millennium. I don't think it is possible. They have to WANT democracy.
We should be assisting the ones who do not want to live under islamic control into safe havens where they can live in freedom. And yes, there are Christians in those countries AND muslims who want to live like we do. Can they prevail? Apparently not.

Redneck, hillbilly, fundie, Bible thumper, cracker, split tails, geezer, loon, xenophobe, islamaphobe, and homophobe are not words of tolerance.
Good morning, bubba.
The question Iraqis ought to ask themselves: were they better off under Saddam Hussein?
