    The original mistake was letting Britain and France do a map carving on their own rather than paying attention to anthropologist T.E. Lawrence on that matter. Of course, for the US to have any influence in the matter, it would have required membership in the League of Nations, and we know who scuttled that idea.

    Good points. In many ways the whole Woodrow Wilson era resembles present political situations, I think.

    The big mistake is thinking your way of life, philosophy, beliefs.. is better. And.. sometimes.. a lot later it turns out not too badly.
    .
    Christianity.. and the values we have because of that is the result of one of those bullying tactics.. but it took 2000 odd years a lot of blood and some pretty despicable practices .

    France and England got their turns to be empires, and now we want ours.

    Of course, we’re ignoring what always becomes of empires.

    If anyone wants to know what created ISIL, and support for them, just read accurate and real stories of what happened to the “everyday” Iraqis in the years following our invasion in 2003. The horror, the bombing, the dead women, children, likvestock, destroyed homes, and towns, and infrastructure.


    Those willing to open their eyes to the real consequences of OUR actions, to get rid of ONE MAN, Saddam, may understand.


    Yes, ISIL is a bunch of crazies who’ve done some horrible things, and gee, killed three journallists and a tourist, but what was “shock and awe”, and as low estimates are at least 300,000 civilians killed in Iraq, and some say almost a milion, due to our actions, or inactions to “restore” that nation. but we are “the good guys”.
