The U.S.-led anti-ISIS campaign bombing extremists in Syria and Iraq has not led to any fruitful results because it is not serious, Lebanese Prime Minister Tammam Salam said in an interview broadcast Thursday."There is clearly no seriousness in this war against terrorism ... Some sides are using terrorists to blackmail others, and are supporting this rise of extremism for their own benefits," Salam told Sky News Arabia, without identifying what countries he was referring to.The premier said that the fight against terrorism needs to start by looking at the root of the problem, which he said was the result of social injustice and inequality in countries witnessing crises.Touching on the Syrian refugee crisis Lebanon and the Middle East is facing, Salam ridiculed the way Europe is handling the migrant problem, which has swept through the continent in recent weeks.Salam also touched on the popular protests against government corruption.
