What is going on in Iraq

isis-is-finding-support-during-lightning-advances-in-iraq-article-body-image-1402707814I really love the Dan Carlin “Common Sense” podcast. Dan seems to really have a way of seeing the world that lines up almost perfectly with me. His most recent show (titled : “Riding Chaos to Stasis”) is something that you all should listen to if you are even a tiny bit interested in what’s going on in Iraq right now. Dan is a historian and he gives us a little history lesson about the region which is super enlightening. It really taught me a lot about how the borders of Iraq (and other countries in the area) were drawn and how England and France and the like really messed things up after WW1.

The episode also talks a bit about ISIS and after you hear it I’m not sure you won’t be convinced that we should just leave things alone. I certainly don’t want the US getting involved in that region and especially in Iraq.

Give it a listen. You will be glad you did!
