Beg pardon. That appeared to be the conclusion.Please don't put words in my mouth.
How do you recognize "extreme Islamics"?During the Afghan War (and indeed it is said to have been planned in anticipation of that war) the CIA/US, whatever, funded, armed and trained, along with encouraged the migration of, extreme Islamists.
In what way?When these Islamist/Jihadists won against the Soviets, it influenced the Arab World massively.
Perhaps you can give a couple of examples here. It seems that most of the Islamic world is run by dictators, with or without the "propping up" of the United States.Then they were left to their own devices while the US was continually operating in the region, propping up dictators and supporting brutal regimes.
So the Americans shouldn't help anyone. Does this pertain just to the Muslim world or is that a general rule?It's not directly the fault of the US - You raise a dog (I'm not equating Arabs with dogs BTW) to attack, sometimes it'll bite the master. Especially if the master isn't the nicest.
Quite right. And the next time you go looking for help from anyone in North America, Canadians or Americans, you may as well shoot yourselves in the other foot. I'm coming to regret Canada's involvement in WWII and expect many of your former Allies feel the same.But I do believe us British shot ourselves in the foot when we decided to fight a war that had nothing to do with us.
