    Mornin Monte. Nah it didn't say. But they didn't stop there with just Iraq and Mosul. They also made a move in Syria. We knows whats coming next.




    Jihadists from the Islamic State group have kidnapped at least 90 Assyrian Christians in northeast Syria, a monitor said on Wednesday. The abductions took place on Tuesday after IS seized two Assyrian villages from Kurdish forces in the province of Hassakeh, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

    IS has destroyed churches and Christian shrines in Syria, and demanded that Christians living under its rule pay a tax known as jizya.....snip~

    I think it is clear that they have declared war on everything not ISIS. Christians just give them front page time.

    Morning bro. Seems they have declared war on Muslims, woman, Jordanians, journalists, Kurds, etc. can't say they're just picking on Christians. And though Obama's trying not to, the right fundies want him to declare war on Muslims.

    Well they are killing plenty of Muslims. Especially any Shia or Alawites they can get their hands on. Plus AQ is going after Shia in Yemen. But you did bring up the point, it looks like any and all and for whatever reason they come up with at the time.

    Have you heard about any Mosques other than Shia being destroyed?

    Mornin Blue State. Yeah and this time they double the number. But they have also been destroying Christian Churches and Relics. More than any other religion.

    As they did destroy some Buddhist Shrines too.

    Not that I can think of, you. I wouldn't put it past them to attack Sunnis as well, if some of them weren't towing the line.

    Morning bud.

    They also seem to be very multi-objective focused. Harder to fight. Destroying relics and shrines is the worst. It destroys history. Every conquering army does it though, whether it be burning books or covering up propaganda.

    The ones around Baghdad should be particularly worried. They have supported Saddam, then the US and then whoever comes to power next.

    Well they did behead some Sunni Clerics in Mosul when they took it.....since then I haven't heard much about going after Muslim Clerics. Plus they did attack the Saud on the Border. But not so much because they are Sunni.

    Right, so. I think its safe to say they'll declare war on any impediment, regardless. Trying to frame this as Muslim verses Christian isn't just inaccurate, it feeds into the Islamic State rhetoric. Which is what Bush learned to avoid, and what Obama's now trying to avoid despite the rights insistence that it be made into a religious crusade by both.
