Concretized idiocy

Reader comment on item: Turkish Support for ISIS

Submitted by Doug Mayfield (United States), Jun 18, 2014 at 15:35

Thank you, Mr. Pipes. I always look forward to your articles clarifying the situation in the Middle East.

As far as the warfare in that region between various followers of Islam, it appears to me to be much like the fight between Al 'Scarface' Capone and George 'Bugsy' Moran for control of the liquor business in Chicago.

In other words, the Middle East is filled with vicious criminal, in this case, Islamic, scum murdering each other to get control of another chunk of oil filled desert, while millions of innocent people in the region struggle to survive even just one more day.

That the Obama administration is considering allying itself with Iran, a country controlled by muderous tyrants who have vowed to destroy the United States, is fully consistent with Obama's virulently idiotic and destructive foreign policy which embraces, and funds, our deadly enemies, while humiliating and discarding our friends in free counties around the world.

I'd be interested in reading your assessment of the Kurds who, based on quite limited information, strike me as being worth supporting.
