    No, but I know we disagree on that as I see those countries creating much of the instability. You must think men are angels. Our founders didn't and stated so and put such emphasis on our constitution and opposed standing armies. The US use to call our DOD the War Department until it was pointed out that that sounds too aggressive and it was changed to the no less lethal but much softer sounding Department of Defence, when in fact it is an offensive department.

    That tells me nothing about your obsession with blaming America for every bad thing that happens anywhere on the planet.

    It doesn't even manage to support his claim that the US is at war with Muslims or that we started it if it does exist.

    I don't think men are angels its actually quite the opposite. Costa Rica works because the US has stablised the region however if that were to change then Costa Rica would have to change its approach to FP.

    What the original OSS guy said was much more than prophetic, its happening. Redrawing the ME map after WW1, instigating a coup in 1953 in Iran, working with the Taliban to run Russia out of the region, allying with Saddam Hussein to help him kick Iran's ass, kicking Saddam Hussein's ass, fighting the Taliban for over a decade, supporting the ouster of Mubarak, Gaddafi, and working to overthrow Assad just a few examples of the US more than interfering in the internal affairs of many Muslim countries.

    I'm sorry you missed the post on the timeline of US CIA atrocities in Latin America, overthrowing many democratically elected governments often replacing them with dictators abusive to their citizens and DESTABILISING the region.

    That's just hyperbole and doesn't warrant a response.

    Name me a period in human history where the world was stable without the presence of a superpower.

    Come now, your advocating Alexander the Great and Greece, the Roman Empire and the imperialistic British period as stabilising forces. And you didn't even speak to the content of my post but quoted it, strange.

    Greece, Rome and Britain left their mark on the world in positive ways and stabilised huge regions of the world. Of course when the Romans fell we had no supepowers which became known as the dark ages....
