Thirty six Conflicts
There are furthermore 36 conflicts, wars, insurgents, invasions, civil wars being raged in the Far East, Asia, Middle East, Africa, Europe and South America with hundreds of thousands of death and beginning from 1948 until now, involving local countries fighting each other, insurgents from Islamic, Christian and Hindu extremists.
Reading about the above conflicts, most of them have certain things in common.
Many countries are or were ruled by dictators or very weak governments.
Many governments are in conflict with Islamic extremists.
Many of the insurgents are Islamic extremists, mainly supported by Iran and to a lesser extend the Gulf States and even countries like America and France.
Many countries in conflict mentioned above, are already failed states or will be soon.
Those failed states are being dominated by Islamic extremists.
The Islamic Extremist group ISIS is the leading organization, which is involved or becomes involved in many of the above conflicts in the Middle East and Africa.
Attempts to stop conflicts
The first attempt, the best until now, is the initiative of Saudi Arabia with forcing the price of oil to be lowered. This disables several countries to stop funding Islamic extremists.
The other attempt is the coalition of 60 countries under leadership of the American President Obama. He maintains an air campaign against ISIS in Iraq and Syria with the indicated intension to stop and destroy ISIS. Until now, he manages partly containment of ISIS in Iraq and Syria, but fails to stop the growth of ISIS in other countries, mainly in Africa and in the Middle East.
The war in Afghanistan is ongoing, but the President Obama policy tends to pullout of the conflict, which will not stop it, but likely to enflame the conflict.
Another attempt is stopping BokoHaram in Africa. Several African states combined armies to fight the Islamic extremist group BokoHaram.
Next to the success of lowering the price of oil by Saudi Arabia, the President Obama us using economic sanctions against Iran, Russia and ISIS. Those sanctions are if course partly effective. Iran and Russia are indeed suffering economically, but it does not stop them from invading (Russia) and development of nuclear weapons (Iran) until now.
The economic sanctions on ISIS do not have any effect on the Islamic extremist organization, because they are self funded and have already about 2 billion dollars seed money.
Understanding the core problems of Islamic extremism, President Obama tries to come up with solutions. One of them is an attempt to various countries to bring social changes in their countries, with the intension to increase the living standards of its citizens.
This effort is hampered by lack of leadership and clear policies, identifying the Islamic extremists, President Obama’s growing isolation and plain confusion.
Conflicts out of Control
The Libyan civil war is dragging Egypt into the conflict. In Libya, ISIS is strongly involved, as is Iran. In Libya, millions of Egyptian citizens living there and they are targeted by various extremist groups like ISIS. For example, the beheadings of the Egyptian Christians in Libya and the followed up response of the Egyptian air force.
In Egypt, ISIS has also a presence, and that ISIS gets or exchange resources with Islamic extremists from Libya and from Hamas in Gaza.
Hamas in Gaza is active supporting ISIS in Egypt. It is again busy with rearming itself for the next, planned conflict against Israel. It’s preparing terror attacks against Israel again, and fighting politically against the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank. Furthermore, it is seeking corporation with Hezbollah and Iran in the next round of conflicts against Israel.
The promised billions of dollars for the Palestinians in Gaza are still not transferred to the PA, because the conflict between Hamas and the PA is still undergoing and the crime rate in Gaza went up sky hi. Hamas is stealing the building materials in Gaza for the construction of tunnels and bunkers instead of housing for Gaza citizens.
The ISIS is doing anything it can to expand the conflict currently raged in Iraq, Syria and Northern Africa. It tries to involve European countries and America into the conflict by sending armies fighting them.
The ISIS tries to use Islam as cause of the conflict. It uses barbaric executions, graphically displayed all over the world, to enrage people and countries to send soldiers fighting them. When that did not work, they now attempt ethnic cleaning by executing Christian civilians.
