America provoked and funded "war on terror" in Pakistan. America forced Pakistani army (its ally) to take actions against Arab "Mujahideen" (of Soviet War period which were once supported by America) who had settled in in tribal areas. Situation escalated and Pakistani Taliban emerged. Moreover America is directly responsible for thousands of deaths in Pakistan through their drone strikes.
You seriously going to put "Mujahideen" in quotes like it doesn't exist? What next, you going to make believe the Saudi funded Madrassas are fictional too?

The death count attributed to US drone attacks in Pakistan is 2,018 militants and 138 civilians. When Pakistan has the ability to control its border to prevent Taliban and ISIL insurgents from using it as a safe haven, then nobody has to kill the bad guys for them.

Now America is using banned white phosphorus in Syria. U.S.-Led Forces Said to Have Used White Phosphorus in Syria. I wonder America is responsible for how much death and destruction in Syria?
Thank you for bringing Syria into this. And yet you haven't mentioned the numerous other countries that are bombing Syria, and extensively using cluster munitions, WP, thermobarics inside populated cities. Proving your bias.

This is an anti-America thread and nothing more.

The US had a covert action program that was estimated to have cost $1 billion dollars since 2013 and well into 2017 to arm, train and supply Syria's "moderate rebels" (we all know what that means) to topple the Syrian government. Many of those CIA supplied weapons ended up in the hands of al-Nusra which is Syria's al-Qaeda, and many other groups affiliated ideologically with al-Qaeda.
And many of the arms your govt and its allies gave out ended in the hand of Shi'a fanatics like Hezbollah. What's your point?

Oh yeah, right, the same Hezbollah that Christians have joined to fight ISIS saying that "they accept us as we are".. the same Hezbollah that Lebanese are grateful for liberating the south in 2000, the same Hezbollah that many notable Christians in Lebanon including but not limited to president Emile Lahoud, president Michel Aoun, artists like Ziyad Rahabani, Fairuz, Julia Boutros, openly support...

Anyways as Lebanese Christian journalist Marcel Ghanem said to a Saudi guest once, "You call it terrorist, we call it resistance,".

Going to attribute Pakistan deaths too? Okay, sure. Why not? Its not like they've dealt with their own issues with Islamist extremists before 2001. Nope, all that conflict, like Iraq and Afghanistan, only started after America invaded. Afghanistan wasn't a war zone between Northern Alliance and Taliban. Iraq was completely peaceful and prosperous nation, everyone loving everyone.
So, Pakistan didn't become more unstable, its own sovereignty more disrespected, and terrorist activity exponentially grew during the so-called "war on terror"? Was that just an amazing coincidence?

To give you credit, Pakistan is as equally at fault for how that region became a haven for terrorist and paramilitary groups.

And there we have it folks. The Anti-America crusade strikes again. Hezbollah are the good guys and all misery in Syria and Pakistan are do to evil Americans and not themselves. :lol:

I'm tempted to think that the Middle East is naturally screwed due to it being full of religious bigots and assorted nutters who all hate each other, they've been killing each other since Roman times and probably before that.
I could describe every single region in the world by the same manner, especially the highlighted part.

"Mujahideen" is in quotes because they are now terrorists for you.

I know the role of other countries in Syria but this thread is about America so i had to bring that up

If you were honest or knowledgeable about the porous/imaginary nature of the Afghan and Pakistani border and its essentially lawlessness, the role the Pakistani ISI played in the Soviet Afghan War and the subsequent War on Terror, you'd admit the Pakistani govt had a MAJOR problem with its NW territories, something they'd ignored until they couldn't any longer. Either clean up your mess or someone else will.

But sure. This is all America's fault. We built the madrassas. We radicalized everyone. We are the ones who allowed Al Qaeda and others free and easy access between Afghanistan and Pakistan. We even hid Bin Laden in Abbottabad. Clearly all the US's fault.
