When will the people of the middle East begin to take responsibility for the problems that they have had a hand in, rather than continuing to blame them on the West? The problems seem to be the result of tribalism, extremism, Islamism and Zionism. People can live in peace with, and not hate their neighbors who may have a different religion or tribe, if one chooses to.

Post Saddam Iraq has got progressively worse during the last 11 years. ISIS are yet another al Qaeda/Taliban organisation flexing its muscles and actually winning. The savagery of these types know no bounds. In the past, we have seen among other horrific events:

-People killed for watching the world cup in Somalia.
-Women stoned to death for non-crimes in places such as Afghanistan and Nigeria.
-A woman sentenced to hang in Sudan for a non-crime.
-Awful terrorist attacks like Lockerbie, 9/11, 7/7, Bali and the Madrid bombings.
-Genocide and attempted genocide of minorities in Sudan, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Syria.
-Tourists shot to death in Egypt.

What equates all of the above is that for the most part, it is carried out by hardline Sunni Wahabbist extremists. Nasty and selfserving, such groups are the worst threat to the world since the Nazis. And just like the rise of Hitler, the rise of these current fascists has its roots in Western and other powers' meddling and poor treatment of Middle Eastern countries by the West and the rest.

To all concerned:

How is making these countries rich off oil using them? Instead of thriving they chose to fall, and instead of progress they chose downfall, instead of social infrastructure they chose weapons, instead of peace they chose war, instead of logic they chose religious fanaticism and instead of love they choose hate.

Whatever happens to them is not the fault of the west....that's BS!!!!

This kind of nonsense did not exist during the time of Saddam Hussain. Western powers played with peoples lives for oil and ended up destroying the country, its people, their lives with a huge deception that they were providing the people a better life, see what they have done, they ought to be ashamed
