Let me put it this way:
We (US) "created" Saddam Hussein. We sponsored his political activities in the 60's so the then up-and-coming Baath Party would overthrow the ruling party in Iraq.
We created Usama Bin Laden. We sponsored arming the Afghan militia to fight against the USSR where UBL was a militia leader, a war hero.
We've sold weapons to Egypt and Libya.
America's had it's fingerprints all over the Middle-East for years, but we act as if all of this anti-American sentiment just sprang up over the last 12 years or so.
Your statement above only goes to show how you try to evade the truth by making such snide remarks playing the "patriot game". You can stop playing anytime; some of us are smarter than that.
