Reader comment on item: The Caliphate Brings Trauma

I predict the first nation-state to recognize the caliphate or ISIS will be ... Kuwait. Then we will all have the sinking realization just what a sinister "new world order" our foreign policy elites have created. Kuwait, the country the whole world went to war supposedly to defend against Saddam aggression, will soon be the first country to recognize the Islamic caliphate that has carved itself out of the secular state of Saddam (with a Christian for foreign minister, no less!) that we borrowed a trillion dollars to get rid of.

Kind of like when you realize that not one terrorist in boko haram, ISIS, taliban, shabab, or any of the groups, has any fear at all of being tossed into the U.S. "terror jail" down at Guantanamo. Like, why did we have it, if it made us betray our values, yet did nothing to defeat radical Islamic terrorism?

We were promised a war on terror but all we got was this lousy police state at home (e.g. Ferguson).
