Weren’t [Osama] Bin Laden, Saddam [Hussein], and a great deal of African terrorist leaders supported by the United States before? It’s the same with the Syria-born ISIS. This is trouble American created for itself, so it should deal with it on its own.

The Iraqi terrorist group is the indirect consequence of the United States’ flagrant invasion of Iraq: The American economy had problems, and in order to make money, in order to divert attention from domestic problems, it launched a war abroad, to make money from war. The war led to internal strife, led to violence… So the terrorist group came into existence!
