The case of ISIS

This blog is a sequel to the case of the twin towers attack.

I am doing case studies of current events to explain how my psychological model works.


After 9/11, the U.S.as a community tended to feel the need to reciprocate.

This led to a double punitive expedition. One to Afghanistan and one to Iraq.


This caused a lot of damage to Iraq in particular. Also because the U.S. grossly mismanaged the entire thing because the republican party is made up entirely out of idiots.


This created a desire to reciprocate on the side of the islamic community. ISIS filled this void, that’s why it has so much support still.

It is not about good or evil. It is about instinctive behaviour.
