    US foreign policy in the ME has been support of militant Islamic groups and instability for decades. Obama came and will go, US foreign policy will continue to support chaos and instability.

    You should try and focus your anger better and try not to mix everything up. That way you would sound more rational.

    That in a way is how I look at it. Whether or not Putin takes over the Ukraine I could care less. The Ukraine is relative a brand new nation, since 1992 or close to that. The Ukraine has always been part of Russia going back to the Czars. The Ukraine is in Russia's backyard, their problem, not ours. Syria, if one wants Stability the, Assad must stay or else all heck will break loose. Iraq, Miliki has the men and the equipment and if the Shia are willing to fight, they can defeat ISIS. If they are not as has been shown to date, no amount of intervention will help Miliki and his government become stable. It is just a matter of time before they succumb to someone, ISIS, Iran or the Iraqi Sunni.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    It is my point of view that it is plain stupid. I can think of no other word.

    That was focused like a lazier on failed US policy in the ME. Your just deflecting, because you support US foreign policy in the ME when there is a republican in office, even though all US policy in the ME has been the support of militant Islamic groups to ensure instability. Throughout the last 4-5 presidencies.

    There are those that say such things and even some that believe.

    Many more than you think.


    Operation Cyclone was the code name for the United States Central Intelligence Agency program to arm and finance the Afghan mujahideen prior to and during the Soviet war in Afghanistan, 1979 to 1989. The program leaned heavily towards supporting militant Islamic groups that were favored by neighboring Pakistan, rather than other, less ideological Afghan resistance groups that had also been fighting the Marxist-oriented Democratic Republic of Afghanistan.

    President Obama has crossed a moral red line. Recently, he did the unthinkable: He announced that the U.S. government would directly arm terrorist groups in Syria.

    One of the most under-reported political stories of the last year is the devoted advocacy of numerous prominent American political figures on behalf of an Iranian group long formally designated as a Terrorist organization under U.S. law. A large bipartisan cast has received substantial fees from that group, the Mojahedin-e Khalq (MEK), and has then become their passionate defenders.

    From an early stage, the rebels received financial and military support from the U.S. government, and their military significance decisively depended on it. After U.S. support was banned by Congress, the Reagan administration covertly continued it. These covert activities culminated in the Iran–Contra affair.

    We armed Uncle Joe too. And that was most probably the right thing to do. And he was much, much worse than the Syrian badies. But I hadn't heard that Obama was going to arm ISIL.

    Well now you know, stop defending it and I'll leave you alone.
