    The Chronology does not go back far enough, does it?

    March 20, 2003 - GW Bush launches a war against Iraq under false pretenses . . . A war that destroys the rock-stable government of Iraq and kills over 100 thousand Iraqis and their leader, Saddam Hussein, the only man capable of keeping Islamic Extremism out of Iraq.

    Al Qadah rushes in to fill the power vacuum, and American troops are slaughtered by Islamic extremists. ISIL eventually pulls away from Al Qadah to become a separate enemy. They stay on the downlow, insinuating their people into the shaky government GW built, readying themselves for the day of US withdrawal.

    I'm glad I could help.
