Sure, ISIS is bad and a scary threat, especially to people who live near it. But I watched my country meddle in affairs on the other side of the world, committing atrocity, fraud and who knows what else, over the course of decades, until the people of the region hated us so much that they pretty much made a country around the whole idea of spending their lives trying to get retribution.
And then they are infiltrated by, involved with, trading with, Israel, Saudi Arabia and Turkey, who are allegedly the allies of my country. And these parties have had a hand in guiding all of the mistakes of my country as they brutalized and humiliated these people over the decades.
So now the narrative on TeeVee conveniently forgets all of history and wants to gin up a good ole war against The Biggest Evil The World Has Evar Knowne, and my response to them, and posts like this one, who imply that my lack of enthusiasm to put 'boots on the ground' and 'bomb them to the stone age', is itself a form of moral weakness if not equivalent to being a member of ISIS my own self, is, to anyone who wasn't born yesterday, a very predictable *&^?# %$^.
I am neutral in the War on Terror(which no one can define for me without describing themselves), have been for a while, and will continue to be.
And I will reiterate, the entire scene in the middle east is kabuki theater set up primarily to enable the territorial expansion of Israel and that no American civilian is getting anywhere close to an accurate accounting of events over there, and never has. One would be more informed after reading 1001 Arabian Nights or watching those Foreign Legion Looney Tunes than by watching CNN.
Money and guns go over there, things happen, a story is crafted for the rube American taxpayers, and then separate stories are crafted for the other countries, and any objective reporters die under suspicious circumstances.
