Way to go, Hillary. You have brought on Armageddon. As the “feminists” say, “You go, girl!”
It all started after a bitter fight amongst Democrats for the presidential nomination in 2008. After Barack Obama got the nod, the rift in the Democrat Party had to be healed. This is a usual situation. For example after Abraham Lincoln got the nod in 1860, he appointed his rival William Seward to be Secretary of State when Lincoln was elected president. So too did Barack Obama appoint his rival Hillary Clinton Secretary of State when he became president. It is the “team of rivals” theory, promoted by author Doris Kearns Goodwin. She thinks it was Lincoln’s “political genius” which caused him to bring onboard presidential rivals Seward, Salmon Chase, and Edward Bates. But really it was just good politics, to help unite the then-fledgling Republican Party.
So Hillary Clinton, far from an expert in foreign policy, nonetheless was handed the important position of Secretary of State. “Might as well do something while I’m here,” she thought. And so it was that Hillary had a brainchild: Why not bring Woodstock Nation to the Middle East? Before too long, all would be peace and love, just like at Max Yasgur’s farm back in 1969! (Background: State Department versus the Ants, Ersjdamoo’s Blog, September 15, 2015.)
And thus was born “Arab Spring”. Mr. Moto, international man of mystery, was seen in Syria. The word on the street was, “Where Moto goes, trouble follows.” Moto was spotted in earnest conversation with a fat man wearing a fez hat, at an outdoor café in Damascus. (Background: Mr. Moto Seen in Syria. Ersjdamoo’s Blog, January 26, 2012.)
Really, “Mr. Moto” was CIA, an adjunct of the State Department. As usual, trouble followed “Mr. Moto”, and “dissidents” began working for the overthrow of Syria’s President Bashar Assad. He did not favor having his people all sit around the campfire singing Kumbaya, which was Hillary Clinton’s Woodstock Nation dream.
Hillary Clinton at the State Department was singing, “Kumbaya, my Lord, kumbaya; oh Lord, kumbaya,” but Bashar Assad refused to sing along. Instead, when Mr. Moto’s “dissidents” were doing “peaceful protests”, Assad ordered the Syrian Army to do a crackdown. This was followed in July 2011 by army defectors declaring the formation of the Free Syrian Army. They are predominantly Sunni Muslims, whereas the leading government figures are Alawites.  Alawites are a mysterious branch of Islam having syncretistic elements.  Syncretism allows an “inclusive approach” to other faiths , which probably explains why Christians and Muslims peacefully coexisted in Syria.
“Assad must go!” declared the United States. Maybe the crackdown on the “dissidents” did go too far and could have been handled better. On the other hand, when you are dealing with a CIA-backed insurrection maybe you have got to be firm.
Anyway, at this point began the tale of, “Assad is killing his own people.” It was like the bloodthirsty Bashar Assad routinely awoke each morning muttering, “Where are my own people? I must kill some of them.” Just recently at the United Nations President Barack Obama repeated the “kills his own people” tale. Obama now says not exactly that “Assad must go” but that it must be a “managed transition.” Nonetheless, Assad “drops barrel bombs to massacre innocent children”, stated the U.S. president. 
This really does seem to be the case, that the Assad government is using barrel bombs against insurrectionary forces. But it’s not like Assad is out looking for children to drop bombs upon. The problem is that the insurrectionary forces are embedding themselves amongst children. It is what we in the United States call “collateral damage” when we do the same thing.
So – long story short – all this has led to some of Mr. Moto’s (CIA’s) forces having wandered off the reservation and joining with Saudia Arabian Wahhabi (strict orthodox Sunni Muslim) forces, called by a panoply of names: ISIS, ISIL, IS, and now lately “Daesh.” What began with Hillary Clinton singing Kumbaya turned into a big mess. Then, when Syrian refugees flooded into Europe, the situation became critical and German Chancellor Angela Merkel in desperation turned to Russia for help. (Background: Refugees Disappear in Europe, Ersjdamoo’s Blog, October 1, 2015.)
The armies of the world shall gather at Har-Megiddo, near where the borders of Syria, Lebanon, and Israel intersect, for the final battle. “And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.” (Revelation 16: 16). Russia (Gog of Magog) now joins Cush, Put, and Persia along with many others, and even soon to include Chinese forces some say.  They all begin to gather, and it all traces back to Hillary Clinton and an idealistic daydream. Moral of the story: The best laid plans of mice, men, and the U.S. State Department so oft’ go agley (awry).
