    From Ramadi and Palmyra – places inside the area they’ve been fighting for – to 6,000 miles away in the White House? Really dumb.

    Run in circles, scream and shout. Rational thinking not allowed.

    hysteria.

    For ISIS to have world domination they would have to recuirt every Muslim and more to fight and work for them. THey are not going to get out of the middle east.
    Terrorism is always going to be a threat whether ISIS exists or not. We will have “religious” extremist doing things in the name of god for unfortunately a long time

    The militant group ISIS was formed as a small insurgent group in Iraq in 2006. Swann noted that while they tried to create problems for the U.S. military, they had no money and no real ability to recruit.

    “It wasn’t until 2009 that ISIS shifted its focus from Iraq, where it was largely unsuccessful in developing a foothold, and focused on the civil war in Syria,” Swann said.

    While in Syria, ISIS still struggled to gain a foothold. Swann attributed this to the fact that two larger groups fighting against President Bashar al-Assad were overpowering them: al-Nusra Front – or al-Qaeda – and the Free Syrian Army.

    “Then, came a pivotal moment that most Americans aren’t even aware of,” Swann said. “In June 2013, a Northern General for the Free Syrian Army spoke out on Al Jazeera Qatar and stated that if international forces did not send weapons, the rebels attempting to overthrow Syrian president Bashar al-Assad would lose their war within a month.”

    Swann noted that just months before this occurred he had personally confronted President Obama on the issue of why the U.S. was covertly funding Syrian rebels. Although Obama acted as if he was proceeding with caution, politicians such as Senator John McCain demanded action.

    “Within a matter of weeks of the Syrian general making his plea for international help, the U.S., the Saudis, Jordan, Qatar, Turkey and Israel began providing weapons, training and money to so-called rebel groups like the Free Syrian Army,” Swann said.

    In September 2013, American media outlets began reporting that weapons were being given to Syrian rebels. CNN reported that while the weapons are not “American-made,” they were “funded and organized by the CIA.”

    However, Swann said that things began to fall apart when less than one year after the U.S. supplied Syrian “freedom fighters” with weapons, those weapons ended up in the hands of ISIS fighters.

    Those ISIS fighters came from the group McCain insisted would help the U.S. overthrow Assad: the Free Syrian Army. Swann explained that the army was not only sending the Islamic State weapons, it was also sending them fighters.

    “The Free Syrian Army has lost most of the land that it ever claimed and it’s entirely incompetent,” Keaton said. “The only thing that it has been good at is currying favor with western leaders.”

    Swann said that it wasn’t until June 2014 that ISIS went from being a “no-name group in Syria” to a group that was “heavily armed and trained by U.S. and Coalition Special Forces.” This revitalized group made a dramatic entrance by crossing back over the Syrian border into Iraq and capturing Mosul and much of the northern part of the country.

    “One of the most important facts that mainstream media ignores time and time again is that ISIS was able to grow so fast, because of all the U.S. military equipment they were able to seize – equipment that our military left in Iraq,” said Swann. “Truckloads of Humvees, tanks and weaponry that instead of taking or destroying, the U.S. government simply decided to leave behind.”

    However, even when the U.S. government became aware that ISIS fighters were capturing U.S. equipment, it did nothing. Swann attributed the lack of action to the fact that ISIS fighters were taking the equipment back into Syria to continue fighting Assad, which was what the U.S. government wanted.

    “How is it that the United States, with all of its intelligence capabilities, didn’t know this threat was coming?” McAdams said. “How many billions did we spend, maybe a hundred billion on total intelligence community budge over the year? How did they have no idea?”

    Swann said that the answer is simple: “The U.S. did know who ISIS was, but the so-called Islamic State was doing what the Obama administration wanted.”

    The ISIS fighters continued to do what the Obama administration wanted, and in late summer 2014, they were labeled what Swann called, “the new boogeyman in the war on terror.”

    “Over the past few months, the U.S. government, who acted like they had never even heard of ISIS, suddenly, with the help of media has turned the Islamic State into the new focus of the war on terror,” Swann said. “Now, as ISIS has continued its rise, recruitment is exploding and the group is becoming stunningly wealthy.”

    Swann noted that in response to the “ISIS threat,” the U.S. began “conducting airstrikes on Syrian oil fields, instead of going after those buying the oil.”

    False to claim Bush is the cause of ISIS.
    Truth is that in 2011 Obama sabotaged a Bush Victory in Iraq and opened the door to all radical Islamists by pulling US troops out of Iraq.
    -
    ISIS wasn’t on the world’s front pages in Jan.2009, perhaps, but the radical terrorists were alive and planning to take over the role of Al Qaeda in Iraq and the Mideast. Fact.
    -
    Islamic Terrorism is on the rise since 1979 and the takeover of Iran by radical clergy with the probable help of Carter’s CIA, preparing the way to fund and train and support Jihadists wherever the opportunity arose.
    -
    Nothing the US or Israel has done or said caused Jihadism.
    The Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood has been working for this world crusade to begin since the turn of the 20th century.
    The only possible end to their evil plans is the Return to earth by the Lord Jesus Christ who will defeat a world army led by Russia and China in cooperation with the Jihadist Arabs.
    Bible Truth.

    Yeah…Bush WOULD have won the war if it was not for Obama…

    That soulds a lot like those hockey fans who say their team WOULD have won the Stanley Cup in 1982 if it wasn’t for that controversial goal in game 2 of round 1…

    Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda…

    They were formed out of insurgents that existed because Bush deposed Saddam based on lies.
