Daesh merged from US backed opposition and Al Qaeda in Iraq and Syria

The United States envoy to the US led anti Daesh coalition has warned of the possible resurgence of the Takfiri terrorists in Iraq and Syria due to worsening poverty and inequity in the countries. But what is the root cause of the instability and poverty afflicting Baghdad and Damascus?

Two years after the 911 incident, the US invaded Iraq, opening a second major front in its so called War on Terror, having already invaded Afghanistan.

The invasion, Operation Iraqi Freedom, toppled Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, but was followed by instability as well as deadly violence that took the lives of over a million Iraqis and displaced a further 9 million.

Consequently, the chaos resulting from the US invasion eventually gave birth to the Daesh terror group in 2014. Three years later the Takfiri group had captured nearly 1/3 of Iraq's territory.
