    I push America into no such role, I see it as problematic. Btw, nobody here, or any political board, listens to anyone's argument. These places aren't for solving problems.

    America has supported militant Islamic groups for decades, and has brought no stability to the ME.

    The West and Russia have supported militant Islamic groups for decades. The goal was never stability.

    And we agree. But I'm an American, I live in America, sleep in America, vote in America, pay taxes in America, as such, I have a infinitely tiny influence in America. Russian and Western citizens need to hold there leaders accountable.

    Right up to the time when we are attacked again, by a much larger, better equipped, and more radical group with their own country. What could go wrong?

    US interference in the region has left America vulnerable to many a risk, thank failed US foreign policy in the ME for four decades!

    Except these terrorists attack plenty of others who aren't the USA, including their own countrymen, fellow arabs, and other muslims.

    That's not an except, its an and. There are reasons they attack those others too, although I'm mostly concerned with why they would want to attack us.

    The point is they attack anyone and everyone as they see fit. These are islamic fundamentalists-they HATE the west because of what it is. Any excuse will do, so stop supplicating to terrorists.

    Spend 10 minutes on live leak or youtube, ISIS is posting new executions, torture, gun fights every hour. Maybe that will help it sink in for you-what these people are about.
