This Islamic organization is worse than al Qaeda. They are extremely anti American. They are on the move and paving their way to Bagdad.
When Saddam Hussein was in power in Iraq, this advance would not be possible.
When Hosni Mubarak was in power, didn’t he suppress the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt?
Was there an al Qaeda or ISIS presence in Syria before Bashar al-Assad had to go into hiding?
Would Ansar al-Sharia have been able to instill fear into the people of Libya and be embolden enough to murder U.S. Ambassador, J. Christopher Stevens. Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith and Glen Doherty in Benghazi if Muammar Qaddafi wasn’t taken out of power?
Lastly, was the so – called “Arab Spring” set up by design to advance the Islamic caliphate?
We should never have taken down the dictators of these regimes. Yes they were brutal but they had Islamist groups under control.
Now we are being asked to go back into Iraq to help their new government army fight off ISIS fighters. Never a “thank you” from the Iraqis for the American lives lost helping them. There were no parades of Iraqis waving American flags as our troops were leaving. They have no love for the American people or our way of life.
Let’s drill for oil and open the Keystone pipeline. The only reason we are fighting on that side of the world is because of oil. We do not have to get into tribal wars with Islamic countries. They will never be like the west. They do not embrace freedom as we do. As long as we keep sending troops into their lands, we will be in perpetual war.
Abdülmecid II, the last Caliph of the Ottoman Empire. A caliphate (from the Arabic: خلافة khilāfa, meaning “succession”) is an Islamic state led by a supreme religious and political leader known as a caliph – i.e. “successor” – to Muhammad and the other prophets of Islam.
