The real target was "Anyone not like us" especially if we can get media coverage out of it.
The west thought the world had become civilized, but as more and more places go all Yugoslavia on us, we remember that murder and mayhem can be used to polarise and create power vacuums that the ruthlessly selfish can exploit.
They may cloak their greed and power grabs in Christianity (Crusades, Hugenots, KKK) in Islam (Al Qaeda, Taliban, Daesh) or free trade (Chinese, Spanish, English or American empires).
The crusades did not make Christianity evil, slavery did not make free-trade evil and jihadist moharebeh do not make Islam evil. BUT only the Christian community could stop the crusdades, only trading nations could stop the slave trade and only the Muslim community can stop the jihadis.
When will you start?
