    Let's not forget history here. We funded the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan when the Soviets were fighting them. We sent them guns. Bill Clinton hosted the Taliban while he was sitting in the Oval Office, and then realized he was wrong on that.

      A thousand times.

      It irks me quite a bit when I see people talking about the past 13 years and they forget to mention all of the history behind it. How America, under the guise of "freedom fighters" basically funded every terrorist group we now face.  Gave them arms, money, trained them, etc, etc, etc....

      Gah

      The damn "Cold War", everyone was so afraid of the evil commies, they got into bed with these people.  Thankfully (hopefully) we have learned that "the enemy of my enemy [is not now, and probably won't be] my friend [forever]"

      Thank you!
