Confused By Politics – Let Me Explain

For those of you who are confused by the current politics 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. I hope that clears everything up for you.

My thanks to the friend who sent this to me, and to the anonymous writer.

  1. It’s really such a convoluted mess, isn’t it?
