The Road to the Caliphate / Eddy van Wessel

Eddy van Wessel takes us on an emotional journey down the road of western military adventurism, of invasions and occupations, down a road where hearts and minds are replaced by hatred and retaliation, a road that traverses regime-change-gone-wrong.

He witnesses the rise of warlords, corruption and power struggles, the advent of extremism, as people are used and neglected without a sense for human value. Eddy set out to document, recording his astonishment, along a path of historical destruction and suffering leading down the road toward the Caliphate.
