23. Yeah

 

There was a difference there, too.

If left unchecked, they might decide to open a chain of falafel restaurants in the Middle East.

You just pointed out why this whole situation is so implausible - "Shia" "Chaldean" "Yazidi" "Sunni".

Savages. Enraged people. Throwing babies out of incubators. Cutting peoples heads off.

Here is where the narrative has lost steam - if you cry wolf too many times, people aren't worried anymore, and simply assume that if the wolf shows up in their backyard, they will shoot it themselves.

And they will.

That's when the narrative perishes and people decide they can think for themselves.
