<quoted text>You should at least attempt to learn the very basics about what you are talking about. there were many tribal factions in Afghanistan that we helped. when the soviets left, the US also up and took off, leaving the tribal factions left to fight over control of the country that had been at war for most of their lives. the Saudis did not leave, they continued to keep funding and arming the factions supportive of their, and in particular, Usama bin Laden's views.

see what it looks like when you actually know what you are talking about?
You are totally clueless. Pakistan's ISI put the Taliban into power. Not the Saudis. They did it because we toppled the regime in Kabul and created an unstable mess. The secular Soviet backed government in Afghanistan was a threat to no one. What we created led directly to 9/11.

Now Obama wants to topple Assad and create chaos in Syria where Al Quieda and Hezbollah can fight it out for control. The Moslem world would be much safer today with Hussein and Qadhafi still in power. The world does not need western crusaders fomenting chaos and breeding terrorists.

Stay out of other nations internal affairs.

The terrorists are worse than Assad. As with Carter supporting the mujahedeen in Afghanistan against the Soviets Obama's support for these pro Al Quieda rebels will only lead to more dead Americans... on American soil just like on 9/11.
