Modern Day Vandals

Reader comment on item: ISIS Rampages, the Middle East Shakes

Submitted by Dave (United States), Jun 17, 2014 at 21:39

ISIS are a real collection of modern day Vandals. I suppose if the Mosul Dam is breached the resulting destruction will generate another wave of refugees. After that, maybe they'll get ambitious and try to develop nuclear weapons.

If the only alternative is Iran taking over, then it will definitely be time for a Western military coalition to go in and take over the country. Think of it as the Civilized Man's Burden.
