Below is a link to a story about the beheading of James Foley by ISIS, after the Obama administration refused to pay ransom for him of several million dollars. Make no mistake about it: The beheading serves to underwrite the Obama/Bush strategy in the Middle East by reinforcing the idea that ISIS is a terrorist organization like no other. And it reinforces the Obama/Bush strategy of creating chaos, death, and destruction throughout the Middle East because this strategy serves to strengthen Israel’s “national security” by liberating it from restraint and also serves those who seek to make money off the situation.
As Donald Rumsfeld said regarding the alleged unplanned debacle following the Iraq invasion: “Stuff happens.” Indeed it does, especially when that stuff is happening because it serves the interests of those in power.
