    Didn't we spend trillions of dollars to finally bring stability to this region?

    you did, and rumor has it, ISIS got a not insignificant slice because they are blowing up Assad's forces.
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    If by 'slice' you mean they spent a couple trillion dollars getting rid of stabilizing forces in the region, so that ISIS could grow strong.

    Lebanon has effectively been involved in the war once Hezbollah - who has seats in Lebanon's parliament and effectively controls the south of the country - received its orders from Iran and marched into Syria to aid Assad against the SFA.

    These guys are serious about re-establishing the Caliphate - that was also Al qeada's position for a long time - so they want to take the whole ME and a lot more.



    Al qeada before 9/11 had their goals listed as:

    1. Remove foreign influence from the lands of the Prophet
    2. Capture the four cities (which means destroying Israel)
    3. Restore the Caliphate and mend the schism in Islam ( which means destroying the Sh'ia
    4. Recover all the lands once held by Islam (sorry Spain, Southern France, parts of Italy, The Balkans, etc).
    5. Covert the world to Islam.

    ISIS is al qaeda in Iraq rebranded if you will. They no longer see the West as their primary target (they realise that attacks on the West will bring intervention) so they are concentrating on destroying Sh'ia influence which means that this is currently aimed at Iran, Iraq and Iran's puppets.

    But ultimately their goals are the same - take Mecca, Medina, Bagdad and Jerusalem - declare themselves the sole arbiters of "real Islam" and then call for a world jihad.

    They won't succeed simply due to their cruelty which has already lost them territory in Syria, but they are going to kill a shit load of people in trying.

    For the rest of the world the problems will start when the survivors start going home. Places like Indonesia, Malaysian and the Philippines will be particularly effected by returning jihadists.

    We should just rename this into a Middle East Conflicts thread and put both Syria and Gaza threads here.

    Sooner or later, some philosopher is going to get really tired of religion and robber baron capitalism and start a movement to equalise the people and remove the opium of religion.



    He will be a hero to internet neckbeards everywhere. His prophet on earth, Richard Stallmann, will kill millions in the struggle to get people to say GNU/Linux
