    Just how will 25,000, let alone a million, Indian Shiites get to Baghdad and be housed and fed, and what are their military skills? Meanwhile, next-door Iran has thousands of well-trained troops available. The Levant is already enveloped in a religious war; let’s try and maintain a little perspective.

      Probably the same way a lot of Levant and Maghreb fighters get to Syria and Iraq: Iran and Saudi facilitators.

    Every time the Jihadists throw more resources into killing each other, westerners grow safer as those same resources are no longer available to murder innocent westerners.

    If we had a government with any sense, it would revoke the citizenship of everyone leaving this country to fight jihad as inherently treasonous. I hope the Indians aren’t as dumb as we are, because they have a real problem with Muslim extremists and weak or ineffectual policing.
