12. He was very friendly to the Sunni population

so there wasn't much reason for IS. Very oppressive to the Shia population, a Shia political leader from the 70s was living in exile in Iran. After the fall of Saddam the CIA installed him as Prime Minister of Iraq and started oppressing the Sunni population.

He ran a secular government, but a barbarian himself.

It isn't like Bush didn't know any of this though -- corporate, private defense profits
