ISIS Caliphate Society Blueprint Uncovered

We’ve defeated ISIS, right?  Like we defeated Al-Qaeda.  Uh huh.  And, that Boko Haram bunch?  Never heard of it.  We just lob in some bombs and poof  Nothing to see here.  Just give us some more $$ and let us worry about it.

Well, oil is only about a 6th of their income and they can’t be so easily bombed into submission.  From their rubble comes a society.  As bleak, violent, and ugly as it is.  Seems that they keep power on better and trash pickup is more a regular thing.

It’s like they’ve invented Utopia.  Look at how beautiful the Ideal Society is when you get to cut off heads and melt gay people alive:

ISIS Aftermath

This is a great New York Times expose on exactly how their caliphate replaced its predecessor societies.

Why not?  Trump dodged the draft for the Vietnam War.  He just wants to slow-walk us all through his elementary U.S. history education and all the potholes we tripped through the last couple times.

About johnnysdoe

I'm JSD. John. Here, that means Johnny S. Doe. Whatever. We all have jobs and life that makes being neon us on a billboard a liability to people around us / to ourselves. I can yap as JSD and not cause hell and a handful of headaches. I’d never put a soul in a tough spot, but, I can write about some shadowy dots that might help make a more complete pic of how reality jenga’s itself together behind all the frames you see while you’re armchairing about it. For all intents and purpose, outside that function, I’m just John. I work seamlessly behind the seams of the political process you do or don’t take part in. I’m not going to get into much of the about me here. I write for fun at Magnana Mouse Citizen Media with a couple other contributors. Nate Silver says there's a 99.9989 percent chance this will be the only place you will ever see me. If you actually know me, you’d pass out in shock realizing this was me flaunting around here. So, you won’t. That’s all. Now, you, back to work.
