Ca fait du bien de rappeler quelques évidences. Mais surement que l'erreur de Mish est de penser que la mise au pouvoir des islamistes là-bas n'était pas l'aboutissement recherché... L'occident ruiné se fabrique son prochain ennemi à abattre... Il n'y a qu'à voir qui a financé la montée d'Hitler en son temps... Faut pas prendre les enfants du diable pour des canards sauvages...
