ISIS is bush's fault. Full stop. No iraq invasion = no isis. - SpeakSoftly
So what you are saying is that its not because we are in the ME that there are terrorists, but because we went into Iraq??
I also feel there wouldn't be a FreeEgypt though, and the whole ME democracy movement. In other words the US would continue to back dictatorships....... something I thought most people here are against.
IMO, ISIS or some offshoot would eventually happen, blame Bush if you must. But I think its was inevitable, given the radical muslim views and its "terrorist" activities getting more and more sophisticated through history.

In the mideast, you either have stable dictatorships, or islamic extremists. Bush destabilized the entire region, and created ISIS and many other terrorists in the process.
In fact, the ukraine is Bush's fault as well, since he is the one who decided that countries could simply invade nonagressive nations without consequence. Once the US squandered its credibility by invading iraq, putin knew the world wouldn't do anything about him invading georgia and later ukraine.
And the people of egypt would probably debate you about how "free" they are these days. They traded one military dictatorship for another.
Iraq was the biggest mistake in american history, and its true consequences are now being realized.
