    This is barbaric and disgusting. That ISIS needs to be crushed for their sickening criminal acts against other human beings. But many of those Arab countries are in such turmoil that the rule of law has eroded to a point of almost non existence. I wonder if Syria, Iraq, and Iran will ever see any change for the better.icon_question.gif

    I don't know, but I could be convinced pretty easily that it can't. I had some hope after the 'surge' of 2007 that we had a chance with Iraq, but given the deterioration after 2009 convinced me that it's unlikely to ever happen.

    Too bad they cause so much trouble in other parts of the world or I'd advocate building a 10 miles high wall all around the middle east, arm them to the teeth, and let them all kill each other.

    The whole problem in many of those Arab countries is that the mass majority of the population is kept largely illiterate and endlessly doused with reactionary religious fairy tales about other groups of people. The key to ending this vicious cycle is a well advanced education combined with a freedom of thought. Many of the old, Islamic based legal codes need to be either revised or repealed.
