"Most of them are hired killers. And also once colonial powers attacks and took out all jobs of millions of people from army ,police and other places they do not have any hope rather than to become suicide bombers. It is exactly happening in Iraq and Afghanistan. Saddam had 4,000,000 army where are they? How they are feeding their small kids and other old family members? What is other earnings in those places? People have only two choices, kill himself or kill others. People can't go to school, start their own business or do any labor work due to situation created by colonial powers."

intelligent japaneses had their dictator removed and became a prosperous country

intelligent germans had their dictator removed and became a prosperous country

intelligent italians had their dictator removed and became a prosperous country

non-intelligent iraqis had their dictator removed and started an islamic hellhole

this is, in a nutshell, why some things work in some places but not in all places.
