Blow Back

Blow Back

Yes we helped the Mujahedeen defeat the Russians in Afghanistan. Then the Mujahedeen became the Taliban. Now we have ISIS. Did our attacks on Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Libya contribute to the formation of ISIS?

We could blame the Treaty of Versailles for the way the Middle East was divided among the winners splitting tribes and religions along convenient straight lines.

We were happy with strong men leaders when they did our bidding and sold us their own people’s oil at bargain prices. When these tyrants or their successors wanted a better deal, we balk at them charging more for our oil that just happened to be under their sand.

So every day we hear about all the terrible things ISIS is doing ignoring our higher tech way of decapitation, burning and blowing up terrorists and bystanders by remote control drones.
