...when Arab oil states started making really, REALLY big money, there was an Arab population of 180 Million across the Middle East.
Today, there are ~330 Million Arabs.
Even with all the corruption, some of that money trickled down to the population, in nutrition, medical care, lower infant mortality, urban utilities, etc.
That means 150 Million more Arabs, all under 40 years old.
At the usual 50% males, that means another 75 MILLION largely uneducated; barely employable, easily manipulated & brainwashed; testosterone driven males, looking for a meaning to life; looking for a cause; looking to blame someone for their situation in a Middle East that is already fragmenting & has few opportunities...
Even @10% (or even 1%) loonies, that means A LOT (750,000 - 7,500,000) of potential Jihadis looking to blame, fight, kill, conquer, overrun, control, torture, rape, pillage, & get rich off, not to mention prove their masculinity & devout faith. Add on some of the 1st generation emigrants to Europe coming home to fight - or more ME locals infiltrating Europe.
Think about it - there are going to be many, MANY ME regional wars in the fear future, with the manipulatorsbehind the scenes (Iran) in control.
With ISIS, Hezbollah might be remembered kindly. Buckle up & stock up, because this problem is not going away quietly - it is just starting.
