One-third of Iraqis believe the US supports ISIS

The US has spent more than 13 years in Iraq under the guise of fighting terrorism. However, a recent survey shows that nearly one-third of Iraqis believe the US supports terrorism or Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL).

The Office of Inspector General found that nearly “40 percent of Iraqis believe that the United States is working to destabilize Iraq and control its natural resources,” with 30 percent believing the US supports terrorism or Islamic State.

    When your average IQ is 85 you will believe all kinds of stupid stuff.

    The Middle East is hopeless. The people are screwed in the head.

    There’s no question that Obama prefers Muslims to Americans, and his powers of discrimination among the favored people can be somewhat lacking.

      These Iraqis may have a point, even if Obama’s support is by omission and blundering.

    ..Obama to Trump:
    “In 10 months, I will no longer be president of the United States. But in 10 months, I will – contrary to Mr. Trump’s opinion – still be a citizen of the United States,”

    Getting rid of Saddam and Gaddafi and destabilizing al Assad has played right into the hands of not just ISIS but any number of jihadi outfits (same shit, different piles). As Nixon used to say “Sure, he’s a son of a bitch, but he’s *our* son of a bitch”.

    Emperor Barry and Dowager Queen Hitlery had no problem with the theory of giving up the middle east so it would “reset” and start out being ruled by the worst of the worst like isis. Over time islamo marxists like he is would make themselves useful by smoothing the way for their proxies like erdog and gradually take charge long term from the unhousebroken muslim fanatics first put in place.
    That the umf’s had the effrontery to take away all the toys he made available and then tell him to go pound sand was just too much to bear. Their rude leadership must now be drone sorted until people more in tune with EB’s ideas on politeness rise to the command level.
