    I hate threads like this - they are unintelligent and missinformed. You could go back to every president (Democrat and Republican) and find examples where they worked with these animals.

    For example - FDR went out of his way to kiss the ass of the Saudi King way back in 1945. You could say that that opened the door for all this. But you can go back even further and find other examples.

    These problems were not caused by one party or the other, but recent Presidents have failed to deal with the region in a way that best protects the nation.

    OP is a complete dope.

    Muslims have been fighting since there were Muslims. Learn some freakin' history.

    OP probably thinks Afghanistan is located in the Middle East.

    Not the first time Muslims have invaded France.

    Charles the Hammer dealt with them the correct way.

    Was he kissing ass, or securing Oil?
    There's a difference in my opinion.

    Why not thank Jimmy Carter. Until he came along Iran was on the road to western values under the Shah. Then Jimmy withdrew American support of him and Khomeini appeared and the Middle East has been a growing nightmare ever since.

    Thanks Jimmy.

    For the record, this was going to happen under ANY President, and we're just starting WWIII.

    We might face an internal Civil War, first.

    There was a police/FBI incident at my buddy's house years ago. When they found my friend's father's old notebook, from the 80s, w/ addresses of Afghan warlords in it, they brought in Homeland Security. Was funny watching this lil pig man milk his Sunday double time, tryin to interrogate a 75+ y/o guy w/ Alzheimer's, when the first sentence he said told the story. "I wrote to them to tell them not to shoot soldiers waving white flags because they were Ukrainian and would help them fight the Russians."

    When the pygmy finally stopped and walked away, my buddy's dad turned to his mom and said something in Ukie. She laughed and said in English, "No, don't worry. It's not time for the cyanide pills yet."

    Not really - when you make a deal with a King - you piss off the people that the King subjugates.

    My point was not to say FDR start this - of course he had to deal with King Saud to get oil. Instead, I was trying to say it's not fair or accurate to blame one of our Presidents for starting the problems in the regions. The globe has gotten smaller - travel is much easier between countries. The Internet promotes easy global communication.

    It wasn't Obama or Bush or Clinton or Reagan or Carter..... who started this, and it does nothing but obfuscate the real issues to blame one party or the other. We can debate and argue about how to move forward, but arguing about the past does nothing buy piss people off.

    I thought it all started with who is the heir to covenant? Abrahams son Issac or Ishmael?
    What was I thinking.

    While that moment is another brick in the wall, you need to go back way farther to get to the beginning of the wall.
