An Alternative View of the Iraq Situation June 13, 2014Posted by geoff in News.
I think people are missing one key aspect of the ISIS attacks in Iraq.
- Sure the attacks represent a failure of the President’s foreign policy, and
- Sure the attacks represent a failure of our national intelligence apparatus, and
- Sure the attacks will cause big problems in the Middle East unless we do something, and
- Sure the President seems paralyzed with indecision,
BUT, people are forgetting about the money ISIS took. $480 million! I think some enterprising folk might take it upon themselves to liberate ISIS from that cash. If I were younger, knew my way around guns and the Middle East, and had a cadre of like-minded cronies, I’d be tempted myself.
It’s like they painted a big bullseye on their backs.
