As Dave the Dickhead prepares to strip us of more civil rights and liberties (including the right to vote UKIP, defect to UKIP or even point out that anyone who says UKIP are racist is illiterate) on the grounds that
Saddam Hussein’s Weapons Of Mass destruction ISIS pose a real and immediate threat to Barack Obama’s legacy british National Security this snippet from an article in the World Socialist Web Site shows where the real terrorist threat resides:
… The fact remains, however, that the US, the major European powers, and their regional allies all previously lent financial, military and political support to ISIS and similar groups, which have Made in the USA stamped all over them. They have, until now, played a significant part in Washingtons efforts to overthrow the regime of President Bashar al-Assad in Syria, as part of a broader effort to gain control of the regions vast energy resources and transit routes.
For three years, the US, along with the Gulf states and Turkey, poured billions into opposition groups, supposedly to unnamed moderates, but in reality to Al Qaeda-linked Sunni groups such as al-Nusra and ISIS to spearhead a sectarian war. The US, Turkey and Jordan have operated a base in Jordan where US instructors trained dozens of ISIS members. In an article last year, the New York Times confirmed that the CIA assisted Arab governments and Turkey by airlifting weaponry to these groups in Jordan and Turkey. The Guardian reported last March that British and French instructors were also involved.
As Little Nicky Machiavelli has always said: It is not Russia or China or Al Qaeda that threaten the security of nations in the free world, it is the United States of America, the various governments of which, for the past several decades have been pursuing a goal of global hegemony. As the WSWS claims, ISIS was formed to start the world war the Obama administration’s ineptitude has failed several time to provoke. And our fuckwit leaders have been helping so the seeds of their own nations’ destruction. FFS.

Without American leadership, democracy is in peril? Not really.
Much of the corporate propaganda spouting mainstream media are forecasting a bad outcome from the current chaose in Ukraine, with ISIS aka ISIL aka Islamic State in Syria and Iraq and with other local conflicts that are part of a cultural war. The consensus is that the west is currently not winning because of the failure of American leadership. This is untrue, most of the problems exist because America is leading the world towards war.
