    Was going to make a joke about Archer, but decided it probably wasn't appropriate.

    The liberties taken in this article...Pretty much like reading England's ancient weirdo laws that still exist today and transposing them to today's society.

    Wahhab, Sunni...So shocking for us to come across a people who shun alcohol and promiscuity.

    and actually we can directly thank the US for ISIS, btw. We don't have to go back to the 1300s.

    Why There Is No Stopping the Funding of the Islamic State

    The governments of Kuwait, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia have for many years funded anti-Shia political and military movements in the Middle East without any substantial resistance from the international community. After the Islamic State (Daesh) morphed into the monster that is has become, and the group was widely condemned by governments around the world, these nations either stopped or substantially reduced their official funding of the organization. Yet, wealthy individuals in these countries picked up where the governments left off. Daesh continues to be funded from sources within these countries unabated.

    The original intention of the governments of Kuwait, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia in deciding to provide funding for Daesh was simple: covertly fund an organization that promoted their collective anti-Shia regional agenda while maintaining plausible deniability with regard to their involvement. While the leaders of these governments could not have predicted what Daesh would turn into, they have failed to implement and enforce regulations that would prevent their citizens from funding Daesh.......
