    Yeah. Absolutely tragic.
    I wish it does continue to spread across ME and Africa.
    I'm kinda worried about Pakistan due to its proximity to Afghanistan but otherwise. I hope it spreads to Iran, Jordan and Syria

    Ah, you so represent everything wrong with US and Americans. Your country wades into areas of the world and screws it up and doesn't even at the very least google the history of the region. It only takes a couple of minutes to google something

    It usually goes something like this:

    me: What foreign policy?

    Libbo: our foreign, policy.

    me: which one?

    Libbo: the foreign one.

    me: ok, but what about the foreign policy is bad?

    Libbo: it was Reagan's fault.

    me: what'd he do?

    Libbo: Iran-Contra!
    I am talking about our concrete actions taken over the years, primarily the hypocracy of talking democracy and promoting autocrats for strategic and commercial reasons. We have supported and tried to install too many dictators.

    But, what was the alternative? Could we sit back and allow the Soviets to control all the countries in the ME? I think the ramifications of that would ended up costing the lives of millions. I guess there was always the option of invading the Soviet Union.

    Then, we'll just have to kill'em all, the way we did the Facists and the Commies. The Islamists--not muslims--are just as bad as Hitler and Stalin.

    Now being compared to Hitler. (Although I do appreciate that "not Muslims" part)

    Hitler and Stalin was Westerners. Heh, the same area of the world that has been the home of the worst atrocities in the world is the same area which seek to prevent other people in ME/Africa having a say in their own countries

    Heart breaking. I'll ponder that during my prayers
