Top US General wants to bring jobs, education, and health care to D̶e̶t̶r̶o̶i̶t̶ Syria and Iraq

US General Philip Breedlove, top banana on the military side of NATO, was on the CBC yesterday morning giving us Canucks the lowdown on the war on Islamic State/ISIS/ISIL.

He assured us that this war the Harperites have rushed us into will go on for a long, long time. Indefinitely even... unless we address the root causes.

And how do we do that?

Well, seems the comrades of the Caliphate are readily radicalised because they don't have jobs. They don't have education. They don't have health care or personal security.

So there will be an endless supply of fresh recruits for the Towelheads of Terror, and this war could go on forever and ever, unless we smarten up and get to work providing these impressionable but disaffected youngsters jobs, education, and health care.

This is actually some unexpectedly lucid reasoning from a top brass guy in the US Army. I was impressed!

But then I thought, Whoa!... hold the phone, Mr. General! The US and the NATO gang are gonna do this for the disaffected youth of Syria and Iraq?

I'm willing to bet that there's disaffected youth aplenty all across the USA who might buy into this... from Detroit to Ferguson to New Orleans to Cleveland there's millions of marginalized youth who would welcome a government initiative to create jobs, provide quality affordable education, and health care...

What do they have to do before you notice them?

Take up arms and declare a Caliphate?
