but lets whine about how people "bitch about anything the USA does" to try to sidestep the issue.
ISIS and those lot would be put down like a mad dog if the Arab League was willing to fight and did so in a remotely competent manner. But no, lets just bitch about how the USA caused all of the problems that have ever occurred in the Middle East while ignoring the role Europe had in the mess or the role the Arab states themselves have had.
If only we had the wisdom of Europe. They sure know when to intervene, just look how well Libya turned out.
You know, if people would spend the energy they put into pointing the finger elsewhere into just admitting the fuckups they caused and learning from it, we might actually see progress. Oh well, not that surprising of a response. Best part? Acting like the Arab League should do more about ISIS, when they are probably using ISIS to try to curb Iran's growing influence.
How did Iran get that influence? Oh yeah, Murika's total disaster in Iraq, that Darth desperately tries to downplay. The USA pretty much handed Iraq to Iran on a silver platter. Heaven forbid that the evidence is a landslide that points at Murika and GOP shenanigans.
Curious how the USA has spent so much enough putting down democracy around the world for various reasons. Irony. Oh well, let's whine about how Murika gets bashed, liberals, and Commies.
