    Ridiculous claims made.

    The US has never been allied with Al Qaeda nor "the ultra-orthodoxy Islam". Please stop that lie.

    The US interests in the Middle East are....

    1. Support of our allies. (Israel, Saudi Arabia, etc.)
    2. Continuation of commerce.
    3. Prevention of terrorism
    4. Countering the USSR now Russian influence.

    How are any of those goal served by instability?






























    Cat got your tongue?

    You said it your self, to put down resistance against him. Why do you expect him keeping silent of people revolting against his rule? If these rebels were successful, they would kill him and his family. Saddam was sadistic criminal but Iraqis weren't angels.

    You are the one making ridiculous claims. Hilary Clinton admitted in front of Congress committee that the U.S involved with the Ultra-Orthodoxy Islam. The current president, Donald Trump, accused Barack Obama of founding ISIS. You think that you will hold something against me by keep repeating naive views and opinions. Then you talk about the instability, you made fool of yourself. Iraq is a clear example of the instability your intervention created, the country become million times worst than Saddam era. Senator John McCain met with opposition leaders in Syria including ISIS leader in rebels controlled base nearby the city of Aleppo. What is your comment on that? don't tell me that it was Photoshop.

    Never said they were. But they are a damn sight better than the dictators, despots, military juntas that make up much of the middle east.

    A lot of claims.

    Zero backing the claims up....

    Yeah, I hate to break it to you but using chemical weapons on civilians is not justified, period. Somehow other countries have handled people revolting against them without gassing a bunch of women and children.

    Considering the US has been actively bombing ISIS for years, claims that the US created them are flat out dumb.

    The Mujahideen were not the same as the Taliban, so you bringing them up is rather irrelevant.

    Considering you tried to justify Saddam’s atrocities i think it’s safe to say you aren’t an impartial speaker when declaring something was “worse than Saddam”.

    What is "Ultra-Orthodoxy Islam"? The Wahhabi sect?

    Drop the code language and speak plainly.
