Future terrorist were created from the killing of Al baghdadi. Todays ISIS is the result ....

... Iraq's 2003 invasion by Bush.

Trump reported that 3 of Al Baghdadi's 11 children were killed in the raid. What happened to the remaining 8? Will they become the terrorist of the future?

"Baghdadi [the ISIS leader] was evil. Under his leadership, the Islamic State beheaded hostages and violently imposed the worst sort of theocratic rule wherever its caliphate could be established."


"While Americans celebrate Baghdadi's death, they should also think critically about his life and see it as a cautionary tale against U.S. meddling in Middle East affairs."

2. Exactly! Also the Kurds that were abandoned by Trump's ill-conceived withdrawal from Syria.

The withdrawal leaving behind the Kurdish fighters that were our allies fighting against the ISIS terrorist. Reports say the 11,000 Kurds have been KIA while fighting ISIS.

We have already seen the angry reaction of some Kurdish partners who protested along the roadsides of departing U.S. troops and equipment from the region.

3. THAT will create terrorists. Killing Bhag's likely to trigger action

in some prone to extremist violence, and his name will be used to invoke hatred against the U.S.

But it's a big difference.

Just Trump/America's betrayal of the Kurds alone, who belong to a number of religions, will create the need to kill future Bhagdadis. As for having our big name on all the problems that result from further destablizing a ME already threatened by several giant existential realities, I shudder.

Push come to shove, we could take a lot of 9/11s, but something like an attack on our national energy grid would kill at worst by far most of us, at best many millions. Just think, water pumps ultimately failing in most municipalities -- sooner than later in many, most "just-in-time" deliveries to markets halted, no ability to stop fires that sweep across cities...

Smirking Putin almost certainly already has the ability to launch attacks of that type and scope.

Btw, the Democratic Party headed by Hillary planned to have half a billion solar cells on America's homes and businesses by the end of her first term. That was not just battling climate change and sustainable energy, but part of a national security plan to make our energy grids far less vulnerable to attack, with most of our nation broken up into small areas able to supply enough power to sustain on their own.

4. Instead we have con-men with a mission to steal every dollar from the treasury they can get.

While at the same time denying climate change / global warming exist.

But of course, they are planning to find another planet to inhabit when they have completely destroyed this currently inhabitable planet Earth.

5. It's like a perfect storm of self-destructive actions occurring

just as the climate crises finally go critical. Not just our nation, but many.

If it weren't for the midterms showing some of our nonvoters had finally become concerned and engaged, I'd still be waking up and worrying too many nights. And 2020 should show more.
