What have we learned in Afghanistan, Libya and Iraq?

Scenes from September 11, 2001, vaguely resemble those of November 13, 2015: Terrorists carry out an unthinkable attack in a country that had not expected one. Anger ensues after the shock and horror, and subsequently a war on terror is declared.

Just over 14 years after the attacks on the twin towers in New York City, after large-scale wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and after the rise of ” Islamic State ” (IS), peace and an end to terrorism have hardly come about.

“Political decision-makers are evidently not willing to learn from mistakes made in the past,” said Michael Lüders, a political scientist and Islam scholar. He is referring to military intervention in Afghanistan and Iraq. International missions in the Middle East, Central Asia and North Africa have not fostered stability, but instead sped up the deterioration of the nations affected.

  • The real problem is Islamic theology.

    With it you get a dysfunctional society locked in a never ending struggle between religious thugs who terrorise the population and political hacks who do the same.

    There is no other option with Islam.

    Without Islamic reformation or complete eradication this problem will continue.

    And to make matters worse. Islamic theology is contagious. That is how it has spread from Morocco to the Philippines (by the sword).

    The entire world needs to deal with Islamic theology as it exists today. If not expect more of the same.
