The United States has determined that Islamic State is committing genocide against Christians and other minorities in Iraq and Syria, US Secretary of State John Kerry announced on Thursday. "In my judgment, Daesh is responsible for genocide against groups in areas under its control, including Yazidis, Christians and Shia Muslims," Kerry said, using an Arabic derogatory term for Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL). Wow this has to be the first time the world has heard you say ISIS is committing genocide against Christians and Muslims in the same sentence. I mean it only took you a few years to do so, or did Obama tell you to say this so pundits would get off his back? I mean it only took you 5 plus years to say something like this since the Syria problems started. Like always Washington has to allow a problem to get worse, before ever realizing what the problem is. The genocide of ISIS could be drastically reduced if you quit supplying "moderate rebels", and we got rid of Turkey as an ally. Just some food for thought from a veteran.
