— The Erimtan Angle —

‘The Islamic State group in Iraq is a “threat to the civilized world” US Secretary of Defence Chuck Hagel said on Monday, 11 August 2014. Hagel said the Islamic State group was a threat to US interests, Europe and Australia. (11 Aug. 2014)’.

The day before Hagel said his piece, South Carolina GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham came out as well, appearing on Fox News Sunday and sounding a tad alarmist by declaring that ISIS or ISIL or the Islamic State, if you will, pose a “direct threat to our homeland”, continuing “Mr. President, be honest with the threat we face. They are coming”.[1] And, to be fair and balanced, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz also said something on the topic at hand on CNN: “They [, the Islamic State] have attracted 1,000 young men from around the world who are now fighting on their side . . . This ISIS is metastasizing throughout region. And their goal, as they’ve stated openly time after time, is the destruction of United States of America”.[2] So, now we know how U.S. politicians create monsters, namely by appearing on television and spelling the word out loud: M, O, N, S, T, E, and R.
