    Why do NATO members like Denmark get involved in the war against ISIS if NATO is not a tool of imperialism?

    ISIS is no worse than Saudi Arabia. They are both Wahhabiists

    Why do NATO members like Denmark get involved in the war against ISIS if NATO is not a tool of imperialism?

    To appease NATO allies (particularly the US), to appease voters at home (who might perceive ISIS as a threat) and for general dick-waving reasons.

    Charles Darwin is no worse than Charles Manson. They are both Charles.

    You obviously do not know anything about wahhabiism and have no desire to leave your blissful ignorance. In Saudi Arabia wahhabiists teach children to hate Jews in school. It is in their school books.
    One day you may be motivated to learn about wahhabiism and regret being such a lazy dog.

    I have no sympathy for wahhabism. Christianity is a horrible ideology as well, but still it would be absurd to say the Archbishop of Canterbury is just like ISIS.

    I thought only remote tribes in Indonesia practiced wahhabiism.

    But I thought the Pope compared ISIS to Jesus.

    Saudi Arabia is a very nasty place to be if you're not male and don't do as the authorities expect you to do.

    I'm pretty sure if their regime was a minority they would be exactly like ISIS.
    I mean, which extemists have they not yet supported?

    Saudi Arabia has not supported the 'extremists' who have attempted or aim to overthrow the House of Saud.

    The Saudi kingdom has women beheaded for sorcery and you defend them?

    How about Yemen? The Saudis are accused of genocide there.

    Saying "X is not worse than ISIS" is not exactly the same as "defending" X.

    Interesting, you goofed. I never said "X" is not worse than ISIS.

    Saudi Arabia has a horrible human rights record and oppresses women a great deal. Saddam Hussein's Iraq treated women better. At least they could drive cars there.
