This comic strip is too true to be funny.... Like, this fucker has actually been supporting terrorists who raped and killed and took child soldiers and blew up ancient ruins.

No I think I specifically mean Obama. If you recall the last year of the Bush presidency, he launched a troop "surge" in Iraq to defeat these militant groups. Obama completely reversed that policy, ordered a drawdown of the surge, then began arming these groups directly, or allowed them to overtake weapons caches, because they suddenly became useful (Israel wanted to depose Assad so they could build a gas pipeline from the Golan Heights, through Turkey, into Europe).

I believe it was Gilbert Gottfried who said "If Greg Giraldo gets cremated, would that count as The Roast of Greg Giraldo?"

Putin on the other hand is supporting a dictator who routinely uses barrel bombs and chemical weapons against civilians. Don't let anyone fool you that Putin is the good guy here. At least Obama is gone within a year, Putin is here to stay.

the destruction of ancient ruins is to discredit legitimate claims over ancient lands. Israel has had 2 relics found to be frauds, countering their claims to supposedly ancient territories as in the claim of a <greater israel>

This invasion of migrants serves not only to crush the dissident anti-usa policy of the EU but also to make occupation of ancestral lands by the Israelis a cake walk. They have learned that it is best to drive a people out than to battle them as they have the Palestinians. Their drive has been a thorn on the side of the current Israeli administration.

In many ways Israel has been under the same type of coup by Nutting Yahoo as the American has been going through with our Porta-Potus.

So sad. Because of the US Gov, ISIS and the like have destroyed countless ruins and historical land marks. We can never get the lives taken back, but those are pieces of history forever lost. Any country who will spend money to vicariously spread death and strife is despicable.

You are correct. Our government is using that tool to great effect. One is an entity (U.S.), the other is an ideology (Islam). It is much easier to pin blame on the actively-manipulating entity than it is to wage war on the idea.

Islam has been around for much longer than you, myself, or the United States. The United States has shown its hand, and shown that it will instill strife to get what it wants. Islam, Christianity, whatever - they would have used any tool to achieve their goals.

Other extremists do exist.

Yes ,and that Wahabism that is responsible for islamic terrorism is a product of Saudi Arabia, our #1 best buddies and partners in the middle east. The Saudi family would have been brought down years ago had we not been getting their back. So, it's kind of our fault to an extent.

This is more or less only true for certain specific sects of the religion.

I mean Atatürk proved to us that Islam and Muslims as a whole are not inherently violent by any possible leap of logic.

The problem is that the people in this world with all the money and power are trying their hardest to make sure that we never get another Atatürk. If you follow the money, it all leads back to the United States.

You're an ignorant bigot. Any country has small groups of fanatics. The problem is the US keeps organizing them, training them, financing them and giving them weapons.

Propaganda works best when those who are being manipulated are confident they are acting on their own free will.

Because Russia doesn't try to claim that it's the protector of the free world.
