Always remember: irrational violence leads to rational revenge. When family weddings are droned into bloodbaths for no-good reason, the survivors will seek retribution.
Why is it so hard for Americans to accept the fact that it was they who created ISIS with their 2003 irrational attack on Iraq? Jihad "Lefty" Joe may be a psychopathic murderer, but his employment is a response to what Americans have done to family after Iraqi family.
From an Iraqi perspective, America is the evil empire; ISIS represents justice.
I empathize with the people of Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Gaza, and the West Bank of the Jordan. If beheading people who are allies of the West is what Middle Easterners feel they must do to avenge America’s crimes and push America and its allies away, then let it be done. People of the "Coalition of the Willing" are to blame when they are caught up in their own deaths by unfathomable means. Of "Willing Coalition" civilian nationals killed in Iraq and Syria, none were forced to travel there. Those beheaded knew the risks that only exist because their countries of origin have participated in raw violence directed toward the Middle East or at least financially, their nations of origin supported America’s criminal offensive.
The regions of the East Mediterranean and North Africa have been made inapproachable, not because of the locals but because of the irrational acts of murder carried out by the United States, since 2003. This is not the fault of ISIS. It is the fault of America and its bloody-handed allies.
I empathize and also sympathize with Jihad "Lefty" Joe. Have at it, buddy! CHOP, CHOP!!!
