An excellent analysis by Bernie. Of course, anything that goes beyond "Islam is evil!" is too complex for right wing "minds".
Before the Iraq invasion it would have been unthinkable that a radical Islamist movement could control large parts of Iraq and Syria, two of the most secular nations in the region. Incessant Western meddling in the Middle East ...[text shortened]... enturism and on and on and on.
It's long past time to stop the bleeding and get the hell out.
What is important to understand is we have organizations, whether it is ISIS or Al Qaida, who do believe we should go back several thousand years. We should make women third-class citizens, that we should allow children to be sexually assaulted, that they are a danger to modern society.
And that this world, with American leadership, can and must come together to destroy them. We can do that. And it requires an entire world to come together, including in a very active way, the Muslim nations.
