One cannot deny the fact that Western powers use religion and Arab groups too use religion as a basis for the conflict. Hardcore Christian leaders say Islam is a evil, Radical Islamic leaders say USA is the Satan.

End of the day of course there is politics involved but if the western world does not want to talk but want to crush. There will always be a reason for fighting.

Insurgencies around the world have been stopped only because the insurgents have no longer a cause to fight for. It will never be stopped because the groups they are against win.
