And how many weapons (that the US provided to the FSA) did Al Qaida pick up?

Doesn't matter. There are far more weapons where those came from. Also they probably picked up some Putin gear original given to Assad. All the US needs is a lat-long and Al-Qaeda and its gear can be smoldering ruins.

What's the hold up?

Another black eye for America. The idea of arming and aiding Jihadists to fight Jihadists is so completely ludicrious, it takes American politicians to concoct. And they still cling to it!

NB: A big thank you for the latest cache of shiny new US weapons from Al Nusra and ISIS. God is great!

Hey there Willi,

You ducked my questions the other day.

Surely for someone spending so much time posting negatively about Islam you will have formulated your own idea of how to deal with the growing problem?

Do you hate them Wendell?

I don´t hate anybody. I am pointing out (and correctly so) the problems with a certain ideology. It you and other apologists who constantly try to change the issue from "islam" to "all muslims".

You might want to read Al Sisi`s recent speech at Cairo University. Are you also saying that the president of Egypt hates all muslims?

Apologist? You're going to have to do better than that swing and miss. Focus Willi. Once again you've ducked the question. I'm asking for your own solution to the problem of radical Islam, since if we're being fair your posting history indicates a borderline obsession it only makes sense you have an opinion on that particular question.

You know you throw around your buzzwords like "Haddiths" and "Shuras", which will certainly make you seem really knowledgable to the average Fox "news" bot, but I am not convinced. In fact, I don't think you've even read the Koran.

Now please. Enlighten me.

Thanks for finally dropping the "all muslims" red herring. As for a solution for the problem of radical islam, ultimately that will have to come from the islamic world itself. In the West, we should at least address the problem, instead claiming that ISIS at all are "not islamic". That is a denial which leads to disaster.

As for any "obsession", that is surely not different from your endless political comments about the US and the obsession with "Fox News". Pot - kettle?

So, did you read Al Sisi`s speech? He addresses the same issue.
