The militants-terrorists-holy warriors-sunnis-whatever are taking control of large chunks of both Syria, and now Iraq. All of this is being done to purify the Muslim world of the infidels who happen to occupy the same planet as they do. This is a playbook of human beings who want to marginalize or totally eliminate ‘those who are different from us.”
History is repeating itself again in this matter. The US is talking about working with Iran to resolve this matter. Iraq is a major oil producer for the western world’s oil addiction. We have access to nice cars, and are willing to do what is needed to refuel those vehicles at our leisure. I can remember the gas rationing in the 1970’s. it was odd and even days when gas could be purchased, not to mention the long lines, and short tempers of those of us who were there to witness that disaster.
The events that will transpire in the near future will once again change the world as we know it today. That is the history of man whether we like it or not. Alliances of world governments is nothing new here, Germany, Russia,Japan. The world will take a major change in attitudes about both our friends, and perceived enemies.
