Putin is 100% correct!! The West has been backing the same AlQaeda terrorists who attacked the World Trade Center, killed Americans in Benghazi, and are now instituting attacks in Mali!

According to my economic theories, every nation should concentrate on what it's best at. Obviously, we excel at manufacturing jihadi blowback, so why should we change what works?

Bullshit, that is not what was said in the article. Maybe the question should be put to Putin, "where did the weapons originate", I am willing to guess that they are the infamous russian AK47 etc.

The Taliban was supported and armed by the US, so they could fight the Russians! The Taliban have now been using those same weapons to kill US troops in Afghanistan for over a decade.
