It is tempting for British, American and other Western peoples to say: ‘Leave them to it; there is nothing in Iraq for us; we have learned the hard way what happens when we meddle in Muslim societies.’
Such an attitude is completely understandable. But it is hard to see how we can stand by and do nothing while the barbarian hordes sweep across one of the world’s key strategic regions, slaughtering at will Christians, Yazidis and every other minority sect in their path setting their sites on other countries and even the United States. They are already here as sleeper cells.
The extremists has already seized key areas in the Middle East and are looking to consolidate control of these areas with piles of cash and vast stockpiles of weapons.
Their will be no end to the killing and massacre in their path to terrorist domain and to the global menace they represent. This is the first time I think the Russians have a point. They keep waggling their fingers and saying to us “be careful what you wish for”. They believe the anti-Assad Jihadis represent a threat to us all, and they are right.
The West cannot reverse its policy towards Syria and suddenly join the Russians in backing the murderous Assad regime. But we can now see that, wherever Assad loses control, he is supplanted notby moderate democrats, but by extremist Jihadis, shooting and beheading as they go.
Obama is weak and as days turn into weeks, ISIS dominance grows dramatically killing thousands in its path. By the end of this month, that number will exceed another million. See my next blog why Obama and his administration is responsible for stockpiling arms to ISIS and training their militants.
