The problem is, Westwind64, that one is among those who blatantly distort history to suit their personal biases. If the facts get in the way ... well, just ignore them. It's also an Israeli/Jew hater and likely is among those who deny the holocaust ever happened.

buc, FYI, to have a closed mind, one must first actually posess a mind.

RMB does not demonstrate sufficient intellect to pass this test.

Mrs. B.

You have a very closed mind and do not speak facts/actuals. You are one of those left leaning NIMBY twits who continually bully without accepting truth.

Yes you will again and again fault the ones who offer solutions, hope and many human values.

Unfortunately there are many like you.

"If it were not for American meddling in the Middle East most of the problems we now see in the world would not exist."

That`s just ignorant crap. The ottomans, the Europeans, and the united kingdom have all been meddling in the area since the beginning of the 20th century. Those problems have existed long before the Americans got involved. Some people should read up on their history before they start America bashing.

'If it were not for American meddling in the Middle East most of the problems we now see in the world would not exist.'

If the leadership of the middle east actually gave a poop for their people and allowed them to join the 21st century unfettered by religious oppression, most of the problems we now see in the world would not exist.

Now that is a far more realistic stance.

Twits, you should move over there, you and your biased hatred for the west and your unilateral and blinkered support for the oppression of the good people of the middle east would fit right in with Hamas et al.

Mrs B

I do believe America and the west has influenced the Middle East and many other parts of the world. I do not blame them for everything that has gone wrong. Refer to Redneck Larry factual description of what has transpired in the Middle East, this is what I believe

Up until 60 years ago the middle east was very much a 3rd world country. Still using beasts of burden as their main means of transportation and cooking on dried camel turds. Most didn't even recognized they were citizens of a specific country since they were nomads and lived by tribal law.

After World War 2 the west devoted money and material to build something out of the middle east and provide them with western tools and conveniences. Unlike Germany and Japan that had to have the rubble removed and then rebuilt the middle east had a clean slate to start. Germany and Japan wanted our help to rebuild and knew how to handle it. Those in the middle east wanted the western conveniences, like flush toilets and cars but didn't realize it also came with responsibilites.

Isreal set claim to where they are now and most who migrated there were from western countries and educated so they built western style homes and businesses. Those around of course didn't want the jewish state and were also jealous of the amenities they enjoyed and wanted them too.

So to try and balance things the western powers, mainly U.S. provided them with water treatment plants, highways, telephone systems etc. Pretty much at no charge thinking they could adapt to the advancements. Well they could not. Western powers tried to encourage development of industry but they were still to nomadic and following tribal law and would not do as advised. Then oil really took off and the money rolled in, thanks to the techology and knowledge of the western companies. We built their oil fields and provided them a market which gave them money beyond their dreams. They started to having to work the oil fields themselves and starting building permenat homes instead of living in tents. Of course they wanted more and in 1973 held the western world hostage with the first oil crisis. Then they realized they had us by the clusters and proceeded to jack the price of oil higher than anyone thought it could go.

What have they done with all this money? Have they helped poorer nations near by? No. Have they invested into other industries so when the oil was gone their economy wouldn't crash? No. Have they sponsored terrorists groups to attack and kill citizens of the very countries who got them out of their tents? YES.

"The Americans can not be blamed it has nothing to do with them "

Surely you cant be serious Buc? To say the Americans have nothing to do with the problems n the middle east is just plain weird. You only have to look at the so called nuclear crisis in Iraq. The Americans are the ones who not only encouraged them to go nuclear , they provided them with their first reactor , which is still being used to this day.

The Americans have allowed Israel to have enough nuclear weapons to destroy the entire region and more.

The Americans support of dictatorships (while saying they want to see democracy) all because of oil and building military bases in the region to support their thirst for oil has lead to all the hatred towards America.

Then their is that little thing called an 11 year occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq.
Mrs-Brigand, 2012-12-02 10:14:44

The Americans can not be blamed it has nothing to do with them 'mrs. B.

Give your head a shake and thank the Americans for the freedom most of the world lives in.

You are just envious and not too bright, always siding with the wrong side of the argument.

Typical attitude from a Lieberal from BC
