Lesson #2 - The "Coalition"
       The U.S. & Arab Coalition Against ISIS/ISL! yeah...we got The Brits and France and a few others (even Belgium & less) to go after the ISIS/ISL be-heading crazies.   But guess who's also joining this coalition?   Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait and a few other Middle East Potentates!   It just so happens that these folks are also reportedly the biggest funders of ISIS/ISL but they are supposedly our allies against ISIS/ISL!

Saudi Arabia:
A Sunni nation that ascribes to Sharia Law and is the only country in the world that prohibits women from driving.   According to the Human Rights Watch Organization, Saudi Arabia has beheaded at least 19 people since the beginning of August!   Yes!   BEHEADED!

Beheading remains legal here.   Most Qatari citizens are Sunni Muslims.   There are claims that some of the very richest Qatari folks are funding ISIS!

“Everybody knows the money is going through Kuwait and that it’s coming from the Arab Gulf,” said Andrew Tabler, senior fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. “Kuwait’s banking system and its money changers have long been a huge problem because they are a major conduit for money to extremist groups in Syria and now Iraq.”

The majority of Kuwait's citizen population is Muslim.   It is estimated that 60%–70% are Sunni and 30%–40% are Shias.

People...if it's one thing I believe...I'm certain that we cannot bring social, cultural (much less religious) change/re-thinking to this part of the world!   Just ask Maureen Dowd!
