  • Today's Top 7 Myths about Daesh/ ISIL
    • Gaddafi - It is a continuation of the American middle east policy that I was referring to. So how do you explain the US supporting Saddam during the Iran-Iraq war to overthrow Ayotollah Khomeni? In 1982, the US removed Iraq from the list of State Sponsors of Terrorism in order to supply weapons to Iraq against Khomeni. Could it not foresee Saddam's ambitions then? Of course, when he took Kuwait, America's oil interest was directly affected as he would restructure the powerplay enjoyed by the chief allies - Saudi, Kuwait and UAE. And he became the bad guy and later a bad guy with WMD. If Kuwait's primary exports were dates, not sure if the war would have happened.

    • Who gave rise to this monstrosity? Try pointing the finger once towards Bush Sr. and Jr. And while the finger is pointing , you might want to direct it a bit towards Reagan for nurturing the Mujahideen in Afghanistan during the Russian Invasion. And Bin Laden (read Al-Qaida) was seeded there and now branched to IS/ ISIS. It was the American myopic (worse than Mr. Magoo) handling of the fighters and the country using the train-fund-drop like used condom approach that devastated one country after another. They could have well left Saddam and Gaddafi alone and there might still be some semblance of peace in the middle east.
