No appeasement!

JPost: Our World: Islam and the nation-state

Throughout the world, one of the most prevalent causes of war, terrorism and political instability is the ongoing weakening of the nation-state system. There are several reasons that the nation-state as a political unit of sovereignty is under threat. One of the most basic causes of this continuous erosion of national power throughout the world is the transformation of minority-dominated enclaves within nation-states into ungovernable areas where state power is either not applied or applied in a haphazard and generally unconstructive manner.

In a nutshell, the US has been appeasing Middle East oil interests by pressuring other nations to give in to demands on the part of Islamist separatists. This is destructive to the entire civilized world, including the US, and it has to stop!
