Super Power Failure
President George Bush toppled Saddam Hussein but didn't do a good home work that there is something called aftermath, killing Saddam doesn't mean that everything Saddam will be killed with him. US soldiers were still on ground when he left office and President Obama inherited his mess. My problem with the Iraq war is that Saddam has nothing to do with 9/11 which triggered US aggression. It was Osama Bin Laden and he was never a friend of Saddam so why didn't Bush focus on rotting Al- Qaida? Instead he chose to extend his rage to a weak government and today Iraq is a displaced state all in the name of liberation.
There will never be ISIS if Bush didn't go to war.
Look at Libya today. I was opportune to interact with few Libyans both pro and against Gadaffi and i can tell you that every single Libyan wanted the Gadaffi demon to the UN saint they now enjoy. In essence, what is actually happening in our world? President Putin accused the UN security council of sabotage, he claimed that the crisis in Eastern Ukraine was orchestrated by the UN security council. Who knows how true this might be?
The solution to the crisis in Iraq according to President Obama is air strikes, no US soldier will be on ground therefore in essence, it is Iraqi's war but remains US mess. Two US journalists were beheaded by this dreadful ISIS militants and all the world were shouting but no one made a noise about the bunch of Iraqis beheaded, the Lebanese soldiers beheaded, the same way no one is talking more about the two hundred innocent young girls kidnapped by Boko Haram in Nigeria.
Is it Lawful for another country to invade another?
It is claimed that the killer of James Fowley is a British and that doesn't make Britain a terrorist nation, over five hundred militants fighting for ISIS are British citizens yet Britain is free from been labelled a terror nation by USA. How will they do that when two Americans has been killed fighting for ISIS? Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab's failed attempt to blow up an air plane instantly made Nigeria a terrorist nation. Who knows how many British and America fighting for Boko Haram?
Invasion of one nation by another is an act of terrorism. Therefore, we can only begin to work out a sustainable solution to all these numerous problem when the actual invaders begin to identity themselves as conspirators and not Liberators. The truest Liberation is Nelson Mandela's victory over the apartheid government. Fidel Castro's victory over Batista and the imperils.
Now ask yourself this question
Who is the TERRORIST?
