30. Without the invasion, ISIS would not exists, thats a fact.

 

Who cares whether ISIS is responsible for the all the mayhem and bloodshed that they commit, they would not have the territory and ability to commit these horrors if not for the U.S invasion of Iraq.

An invasion that a majority of Americans supported at the time, so we cannot just pin this on Bush, as in a democracy the will and opinion of a people can usually force a corrupt government to think twice about engaging in an action such as the Iraqi illegal invasion.

But the main point I am trying to make is that you can blame all the atrocities on ISIS if that makes you feel better (god knows they are the ones that carry them out), but the fact that ISIS would never have had any power or territory to carry out its atrocities if Bush and the majority of the American public didn't approve of invading Iraq in an illegal manner in the first place.

It always amuses me when people try to dismiss or downplay an action that results in giving bad guys the ability to act like their bad selves.

Bush and America behind him illegally invaded Iraq, that created a power vacuum that bad guys such as ISIS decided to fill.

So using the logic of cause and effect, the U.S is directly responsible for giving every psychopath in the world an outlet for them to join and carry out their pyschopathic wants.

Its the equivalent of destroying a town in America which then enables all serial killers to take advantage of the resultant chaos to forge ahead with their serial killing wants.
