1. Well, before the breast beating leaves too many bruises

also consider the multi decade export of extremist Wahab Islam by Saudi Arabia, schools funded by oil money set up all over the Islamic world to teach that particular brand.

That's why they look so insane to us, obliterating an ancient non Islamic past while butchering anyone who doesn't immediately lip service the dogma.

The core of the fighters, themselves, were former soldiers and government workers that idiot Bremer fired in Iraq because they were members of the Baathist Party. Deprived of their jobs in a destroyed country, they were left unemployed and dependent on relatives, the resentment festering for a decade. That's the immediate cause of ISIS.

However, the basic cause is extremist Islam, something that has been in the works for a few decades as it has been funded and exported all over the world.

In other words, this is no accident. It is a war to force orthodoxy, more than an anticolonial war.
