Dance of the Seven Fails?
Are we back in the days of "failed states"?
Of "an Axis of Evil", but now constituted by Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Yemen, Iran and Sudan?
The United States is currently bombing the first five countries on that list.
Thank you, Barack Obama.
It is no wonder that there is a refugee crisis.
Although there is none such from Iran.
Nor has anyone from any of those countries killed an American in America (if, in at least the Iranian case, anywhere) during the present century.
And nor is it possible to tell in any conclusive way, if at all, from people's passports whether or not they belong to a religious minority.
The constitutionality of doing so in the United States would in any case be very highly questionable.
Furthermore, each of those seven countries contains some very colourful religious minorities indeed.
