    Yes ISIS beheads ,rapes, pillages, and generally causes quite the ado on their turf

    Which works out great for the USA, because we basically use them as an excuse to be heavy handed 'protector'

    But i would question just what that would be were i you

    Just what would be?

    You want to discuss the US involvement in the ME and, specifically, Iraq. That's fine. The only interest that the US has ever had in Iraq is oil.

    Further, the US has a lengthy history of targeting small disenfranchised groups that are willing to support American interests and bringing them to power. Not a secret, dude.

    When Obama was in office, there were several multiple European countries that wanted to divide Iraq. He said that it wouldn't be happening on his watch. Rightly so.

    Is this what you were looking for?

    It is 2018. We have multiple little militias (and you need to know who they are) by regional powers and a storage facility with ballots that was blown up making a recount impossible. The number of executions is starting to look a lot like the Reign of Terror. If you are looking for a pretext for war that allows people to feel good about it then that's it. In fact, the Human Rights groups are already sounding the alarm.

    We good?

    Link to support your implication that we have been getting or ever got Iraqi oil at below market prices.


    Or admit that you are just a propaganda mouth piece.
