Lying West has armed many of the jihadists

IT'S not about 'we told you so'. It's more about the culture of arms that exists and the lies and delusions surrounding the arms business.

It's now public knowledge that Western arms to Iraq have fallen into the hands of jihadist fighters. Terrorists in Syria have been armed and trained by US special forces.

The delusion is that the arms only go to the good guys and that these conflicts are home-grown, when they are anything but. And the lies are what we hear when people like Hague and Obama open their mouths.
