"But the world can't hold its own problem and put Iraq and Isis on the head."

"It was never about ‘weapons of mass destruction’. That was just the excuse and the warriors concerned knew it. And yet because those clever men wanted that war, and because they thought American power was supreme and nothing could challenge it, they went ahead, secure in the knowledge that there would be no consequences.

"Well, the consequences have been many, not just for Iraq which was pulverised, the foundations of its society destroyed and millions of its citizens made homeless and forced to seek refuge in foreign lands, but for the US as well – nearly 4,500 US service members killed and many thousands seriously wounded, many maimed for life, and thousands suffering post-traumatic stress disorders…and a trillion dollars gone down the drain prosecuting this senseless war, bereft of purpose and reason.

"Nor was this the only cost.
The war and the resistance it spawned gave rise to what the West likes to call Islamic extremism.
In other words, one form of extremism giving rise to another – American extremism, in the form of the invasion, giving rise first to Al Qaeda in Iraq – previously there was no Al Qaeda there – and then to the menace the world, and the West especially, is now confronting, Daesh or the Islamic State."

"Daesh was born in Iraq.
Camp Bucca in southern Iraq was where many of those who would become its leaders, including the self-proclaimed Caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, were kept.
It was in that ‘jihad university’ that they honed their ideology and sharpened their ideas, and forged the bonds that would serve them later."

Contd.........

"But given the origins of the Iraq war, whom should we call the real architects, the founding fathers, of Daesh, the Bucca graduates or the likes of Cheney, Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz?
The horrors in the name of Islamic radicalism the world is now witnessing began with their handiwork."
