emulating the Saudi Royalty with their petro-empires of wealth. For sure the war in Iraq started ISIS. And it was also about a war that would pay for itself with oil. I think we know the GOP is not exporting a decent income tax around the world.. they certainly do not want to pay taxes themselves but fund (through charity at times) only institutions (like evangelical churches)and corporations that will make them more powerful. Exactly like the Saudis. Farook, like many Middle easterners, scapegoated Israel for all that is wrong in his world. And he felt all the humiliations of being muslim (in america, in europe and in the middle east). They have built a cult to make themselves mighty men, big men, in a world that does not see it.Because of inequality and a complete lack chances to built a life through hard work and merit in the middle east. No the GOP didn't cause that couple to become radicalized directly. They are both sick *****.But they sure as hell gave them the gun in easily acquired automatic weapons and now give ammunition to the angry in and from the middle east, with their Muslim bashing. They are increasing the chances of more attacks. Which serves their goal of getting their base to vote out of fear. All so the rich don't have to pay taxes and can take more power away from the US middle class. The Saudis play the same game and do it no better, no worse. There is trend on discussion boards as we speak to attack Muslims and other marginalized groups. It is no doubt an organized campaign. It is so bad that a few sites have stopped their forums/comments sections. All republican talking points. All used to make the GOP base all turn out in 2016. You would think that the great usa would be marshalling resources to fight the group they are at war with instead of regular americans on the internet trying to talk about the world. But i guess it is war the right wing is waging against connectedness that doesn't directly serve their needs. Was a time when the corporation only owned you during working hours. Now they control their base's free time and minds as well. No it will not end well. And the angry young men, be they jihadis or republicans, it doesn't matter who, will try and buy an assault weapon to shoot up some americans minding their own business. Will the GOP let them? It seems they will.
