    A vacuum of brutal oppression and slaughter that leads to the situation in the first place.

    Just like when that dictator Tito died in Yugoslavia and then Christians and Muslims were at each others throats from that point on. I find dictatorship nothing I want a part of but an iron fist seems to be all that a region has from tearing itself apart sometimes. Especially when it's overrun by religious fanatics.
    Saddam killed ~50k per year for 20 years, and that's only counting the major events, not the mass slaughters of 50-hundreds that occurred regularly. That is what set the stage for the current crisis - Saddam's obliteration of social capital in Iraq.

    Spanish/American War
    WWI
    WWII
    Korean War
    Vietnam War
    Gulf War
    Iraq War
    Afghanistan War

    Uhhh did I say they were simply AQI renamed? No. They were born out of AQI and splintered off form them.

    No one likes to fight wars.

    You can just say you don't want to answer the question instead of dodging with answering a question with a question you know.

    Does genocide, mass slaughters, institutionalized rape and a brutal dictatorship of cronyism not have lasting effects and consequences?
