    This is a surprise to people? Do people know where Saddam Hussein got his start? Or the Shaw of Iran, or the Sandanistas*, or the Contras?

    I may be remembering incorrectly in the case of the Sandanistas but there are lots of other examples. The US and its allies have been funding paramilitary groups in other countries for decades and every time it backfires in their faces. They never learn.

    Reagan welcomed the Taliban to the White House. He called them "The moral equivalent of our founding fathers"

    And I think the backfiring bit is all part of the plan. Money to be made.

    Seriously this isn't surprising at all anymore. It would actually be more surprising to find out we had nothing to do with it.

    Why I find it laughable when Iran is called the leading sponsor of terrorism. We sponsor terror. The Saudis sponsor terror. Iran just sponsors the other side.

    You'd be surprised at the amount of retards that will call you a tinfoil hat conspiracy theorist nutjob when you suggest ISIS is used as a pawn to the gains of the west.

    However, it's cynical to spin it as a fight against Hezbollah instead of as a proxy against Assad and war with Syria.

    American foreign policy has always been so arrogant (one of the few things I agree with Rand Paul on is the need to be less interventionist). We always assume we can harness these extremist political and religious groups/dictators to fight proxy wars for us, and then we're surprised when we can't control them and it blows up in our face. Like another poster said, I'd be much more surprised if an extremist group rose to power that we had never had anything to do with one way or the other as opposed to us funding them.

    Daesh started with Saddams religious program in the eighties. Also globalresearch.ca is garbage.

    Friends and allies being themselves. It's like when someone calls into a radio show with an embarrassing question so they say they are asking for a friend. "So my friend has been having a really bad burning sensation when he pees, he wants to know if there's anything he can do to fix it"

    Every fucking week, I hear about a new group that the US had ties to or is fighting. Every week I learn a new random Arabic name assigned to some group.

    What the fuck are we doing over there?

    It should come as no surprise that scumbags in the US government are in bed with Gulf States and Turkey to assist in the rise of the jihadist movement.

    Here is Mc**** with kidnappers and Islamists at the beginning of Syrian Civil War.

    Then you have this video back in 2006, which pretty much tells you which regime US plans to topple next:

    The world would be a better place if these "allies" bombed each other to oblivion.

    It's annoying because they could just as easily say Hamas and Hezbollah. Leading sponsor of terror around the world makes it sound like they are funding international terror groups and jihadis.
