USSR economy fails country breaks up, the USA pulls support and now you have trained armed Middle east countries and religious factions with a hate on for the US comes to be Taliban. USA goes after resources oil and you have Bush start a war. More hate and more pissed off Middle east with no way to combat a Supper power except with Terrorism.9/11 was there answer and it continues to this day. War after war and they again will find away to bring it to American soil. A train/boat/building/etc. My point is did Trump add to this mess by killing this guy and making a mortar to give the terrorists another reason to get behind? My intention is not a knock on the Americans (I have many friends that are yanks), my intention is to have a conversation and have the thoughts shared both ways. That's why its called a forum. But if its just going to be shut the fuck up, that's cool too even though its not very thought provoking. I have no issue listening to more opinions then my own.
Remember its was the Archduke Ferdinand assassination that started the first world war.
