The Fall of Saddam Hussein's Government led to the rise of the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL)

  • Saddam held the country together.

    Though Saddam Hussein's regime was quite tyrannical certainly the Shia Muslims, he did have a loyal military force and a stable government, if America and the collation of the willing had not invaded his government could have held the nation together and the Islamic State could not have gained enough power to rise, now the weak government has up loyal soldiers and the Shias who seemed to be saved are facing persecution and possibly execution for their beliefs, if the invasion of Iraq had not happened the Islamic state would not have formed, and they would not have committed such terrible atrocities.

  • Which would you like?

    I'd rather have a tyrant who kills those who oppose him than to have a group of seemingly religious people (who are a real disgrace to their religion) gunning down random drivers on the streets or blasting heads of disbelievers off with explosives tied to their necks. And they do so in the name of religion. What a shame.

  • ISIS had formed years before Saddam had fallen.

    ISIL was formed by a man by the name of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi in 2003. Which already means ISIS was not formed because the fall of Saddam was late December of 2006. In 2004 ISIS had received funding from Al-Qaeda. The funding has since stopped and the two forces have become rivals. Had IS acted then, I'm sure they could have overthrown Saddam. After Saddam had died in 2006, the U.S. forces then returned home. IS then saw their opportunity to seize many more followers due to the disorganized country. Had the American soldiers stayed in Iraq, the Islamic State certainly would not be the threat it is now.
