Explaining the Middle East
The Middle East
No doubt you will find this invaluable.
A number of people are confused by what is going on in the Middle East?
Let me explain.
We support the Iraqi government in the fight against ISIS.
We don’t like ISIS, but ISIS is supported by Saudi Arabia who we do like.
We don’t like Assad in Syria and we support the fight against him, but ISIS is also fighting against him.
We don’t like Iran, but Iran supports the Iraqi government in its fight against ISIS.
So some of our friends support our enemies.
Some enemies are now our friends and some of our enemies are fighting against our other enemies, who we want to lose.
We don’t, however want our enemies who are fighting our enemies to win.
If the people we want to defeat are defeated, they could be replaced by people we like even less.
And all this was started by us invading a country to drive out terrorists; who were not actually there until we went in to drive them out.
It’s quite simple, really.
Do you understand now?
I hope that clears everything up for you. I know it did for me.
