You know the saying; catch me once shame on you, catch me twice, shame on me.
USA armed the Afghans and created Bin Laden, now they want to arm Syrians, have they lost their collective minds over in Washington DC? Bush was dumb, but Obama is dumber.

    That’s the whole point though. The powers that be need a constant stream of enemies to fuel wars because that’s how they make their money. If they can’t find an enemy that they can justify fighting then they will create one.

    The truth of it all is the american president,commander in chief does what hes told to do. They are mere puppets,slaves to their corporate sponsors, and the biggest sponsors are of course the industrial military complex which takes in everything from vehicles to weapons to surveillance to construction. They need a perpetual war to use up their munitions and new toys, and to demolish places so they can rebuild them. Its no coincidence that they repeat their mistakes, they need to have an enemy to be at war with at all time. They had bin laden and al qaeda for awhile and now they need a new enemy. Arming rebels is a great way to find another enemy. They will use the weapons to fight IS and after awhile the same weapons will be turned against the west then the west go to war to fight who they armed in the first place, so more money is spent fighting. Its the driving force behind wars for decades, the mantra of freefom and democracy is just an excuse for a war economy which drives the american economy like no other
