How Statism Drove Iraqis into the Arms of Terrorists

The rapid territorial gains in Iraq of the Al Qaeda splinter group ISIS in recent days has seized the attention of American news followers, many of whom don’t realize that ISIS’s rise in Iraq started back in January, when it took over at least parts of the city of Fallujah.

It is no accident that this particular beleaguered city should become the cradle of the world’s first ever overt jihadist terror state. That nightmare development was the outcome and culmination of 11 years of Fallujah being subjected to full-spectrum statism of the purist form.

But the Americans soon gave Fallujah a tyranny like they had never known. The blood started flowing a mere five days after the U.S. Army entered the city. Perhaps taking their liberators’ promises of democracy a bit too seriously, a crowd of demonstrators gathered outside a school that was occupied by the army, demanding that it be re-opened for the use of their children again.
