    In 2011 the Hillary State department approved the transfer of Stinger missiles to Qatar , which were supposed to go to Anti Gaddafi rebels. Qatar had other plans...., they gave some 50-60 of those Stingers (newer Stingers not the Soviet era ones) to the Taleban.

    Taleban have used these Stingers against US forces in Afghanistan.

    When will the US ever learn...

    No matter how many times Pakistan, Saudi, Qatar, Kuwait back-stab and proactively support forces that kill Americans and advance genocidal sectarian goals, the US still keeps supporting them .

    50-60 Stinger missiles seem like a lot , i.e a bit hard to believe Qatar gave that many but who knows...

    Maybe if we let Qatar keep the World Cup they'll get the missiles back?

    Maybe the US should stay out of these countries. I'm sure the US wouldn't take kindly to a foreign government sending their troops into the United States.

    When the U.S. stays out, other countries step in.

    Iran in Syria, Russia in Ukraine, and China in the Pacific.

    As the U.S. runs for cover the world will get a lot more "interesting" again.

    If you really want to stop terrorism, air strike the shit out of the royal families of Qatar, Saudi Arabia and UAE.

    That was why I was totally against arms to Syria other than small arms (AK types, RPK's, and maybe RPG's). Any kind of advanced weapons should not be going to the rebels.

    US does not learn its lessons due to political idiocy by policy makers.

    They're liberal elitists. They're just flat out better than you.

    I could care less what a medieval culture think. If Saudi Arabia, Qatar and UAE got wiped off the map tomorrow, they would fully deserve it for all their underhanded stunts they've pulled.

    it's not what they think, it's what they'd do in that case. remember their reaction to some fucking vignettes and imagine what they'd do if Saudi royal family got bombed by the USA.

    Even better the royal family send their son to learn military tactics at the most prestigious military academy in the US West Point. He just graduated this year from West Point.
    Father Emir, Sheikha Moza and Hamad Victor Nazim the son. He is the first member of an Arab royal family to attend and graduate the school.

    Unfortunately that usually happens. Sell the older stuff to everybody else to upgrade our tech. We create a danger but hope that we still have the upper hand but you never know depending on who uses the weapons can be very dangerous. A small country might not be feared but who has hold of it is a concern especially if ambitious and ruthless. Imagine being shot down by your own creations, mind blowing.

    How many progressives and libertarians on these boards want to say 'I told you so' right now? Probably all of them. Our foreign policy is still a huge fail and the fact that people even consider Hillary a viable candidate for the presidency shows just how meaningless voting has become.

    They'll start some riots and do a few bombings if Saudi Arabia was attacked. Militarily, the Muslim world is quite incompetent.

    Just shows the CIA are a joke outfit with no understanding of these Sunni Arab states. They are not to be trusted. They don't want rid of Assad and Gaddfi because they want to replace him with freedom and democracy. The groups they are backing are harsh, unmerciful killers.
