Centre In KL To Combat IS Propaganda

Okay. I don't like Islamic State or Daesh or whatever. They are stupid, vicious and a waste of space.

But when I hear that the US wants to set up a centre in KL to counter Islamic State’s online propaganda, I am going, "Whaaaaat?"

After all, the US is responsible for the propagation of IS.

If George Bush hadn't invaded Iraq and Afghanistan; leaving women and children dead and enraging thousands of young Muslim men, there would not have been a reason for IS to thrive.

They themselves have clearly acknowledged that, "public statements from US government officials condemning the group could easily be used by it as a recruitment tool".

Ah well. Perhaps we shall know in time to come, whether this was a good idea or not.
