an increase in military action would lead to an increase in recruitment

Yes?

The U.S. is directly responsible for producing the majority of propaganda and distributing it. They are behind the fake beheading videos.

The U.S. is not a democracy, it is a constitutionally-limited democratic republic. But I agree 100% with your sentiments.

Also, on North Korea: it's a ****ing terrible regime, but they're not exactly a threat to world peace. The main reason they've been developing nuclear weapons is to stave off a U.S. invasion.
The U.S. is creating it's own enemies. This is by design. Gotta proliferate the military-industrial complex.

I agree that it's fishy, but there's no need to construct conspiracy theories.

Hate doesn't arise from nowhere. Middle-Eastern extremists hate the U.S. specifically because of their role in destabilizing the region. "It doesn't matter what we do" is a ridiculous claim. What if the U.S. was to slash military spending and use that money of healthcare instead? Do you think that would be seen as a provocation? Of course it wouldn't.

Besides, Syria, Russia, and the Kurdish YPG are already fighting ISIS. U.S. involvement in the Syrian conflict is not helping at all - the recent U.S. bombing of a Syrian military base is proof of this. The best thing the U.S. can do to weaken ISIS (if that's even what they want) is to cease their military involvement in Syria.
