But more to the point, 15 of the 19 September 11 hijackers were citizens Saudi Arabia. I'd suggest you pretty much have it ass backwards.
Actually I'm the one that has it right and you're the one that has it ass backwards. Those hijackers were Islamic extremists acting as members of the international terrorist organization al Qaida, not as members of the Saudi government, its armed forces, or organizations under its control. How is it that you don't get that? Is everything that US citizens do outside the country at the order of the US government? Clearly not.
Maybe you haven't heard but al Qaida is fighting against the Saudi government and wants to overthrow it.
Iran is the mess it is now (from our perspective) directly because the US fucked them over in 1953.
Once again you have it completely wrong. The US and UK didn't "fuck them over," they helped Iran recover from a coup. The Prime Minister had effectively overthrown the government having faked an election, dissolved the parliament, was ruling by decree, and ignoring the last check on his power - the right of the head of state, the Shah, to dismiss the Prime Minister. Restoring the Shah to power gave Iran a chance.
If we quit listening to these numb-nutted war neo-cons, maybe we wouldn't keep finding ourselves in bad situations decades later....
Question: Does the Soviet Union still rule Afghanistan? Does the Soviet Union still rule Eastern Europe? No? Apparently the factions you favor can take no part of the credit for that.
although with the whole Iraq/Afghanistan thing, it didn't even take decades.
That is pretty much nonsense. The problem of Islamist extremism has been growing for decades in the Middle East and South-West Asia. Maybe you've heard of the bombing of the Marine barracks in Lebanon? The problem is decades older than even that.... in its current form.
