7. I see your denial is particularly strong.

 

Who cares about Wahhab or Qutb? There would be no ISIS, with 20,000 fighters holding territory, except for the entirely unprovoked and imperialist war of aggression launched by the US-UK governments against Iraq in 2003. US-UK murdered hundreds of thousands of people, injured and traumatized tens of millions, leveled cities and infrastructures, intentionally tore down the prior institutions of state, poisoned the land and caused the destruction not only of the formerly secular nation of Iraq, but indirectly of Syria, which took in two million or more refugees. These were not "policy mistakes," they were criminal aggressions. The same US-UK governments have been the Western bulwarks backing the Gulf oil kingdom regimes who, in turn, promote the ideologies you seem to think are primarily to blame, and who provided pre-ISIS with its arms. (Now ISIS get their arms by taking them from the "Iraqi Army."
