SPD party whip Thomas Oppermann has found it necessary to interrupt his clearly less than busy summer vacation to explain to Germans who already know that it is the United States ITSELF that is directly responsible for the rise of the ISIS terrorist group and their atrocities in Iraq.
The American intervention and overthrow of Saddam Hussein ten years ago, so the reasoning goes, ruined the “togetherness” that had predominated under the peoples and religions down there up until then. While their fearless leader was still around to take care of things like togetherness and stuff like that, I mean. Whatever.
But not to worry, folks. Six (that’s the number between five and seven) German soldiers have now been sent to the area to calm things down and clean things up.
Personally, I think that this guy needs to extend his vacation another month. He’s obviously stressed out and can’t see very clearly at the moment. Not only do Germans get terribly stressed out just watching TV (while on vacation or otherwise), a new study also indicates that the enormous stressGermans are generally under can lead to vision impairment, too.
Die US-Intervention habe das Miteinander der Völker und Religionen im Irak zerstört.
Yesterday, in his pre-golf tee press conference, somebody asked President Obama if he had a strategy for dealing with ISIS. He replied that he did not have a strategy…..yet, but he and his Delta House staffers are working on it!. At least Germany is sending six well intentioned peace keepers. Hope they don’t get kidnaped by ISIS like the 35 UN Peace Keepers on the Golan Heights.
