No guts can prove this wrong wishful thinker..

- What does this mean in English? Unfortunately, I am not fluent in Gibberish!

modern Jihadism and Terrorism was breeded by modern crusaders (USA, Britain and France) to combat the former USSR

- Buy a history book. It's quite clear that the roots of Arab paranoia were sown when the Ottoman Empire was defeated by the Crusaders and it's Persian colony incompetently divided into states by the British & French after WWI and a bunch of savages, who had formerly been happily kept on leashes by the Turks, were allowed to take over the zoo!

The Soviet Union & USA fanned the flames of this particular fire but I think that a cold war where warfare is fought indirectly, by two countries with enough armaments to destroy 20 planet Earths, via geopolitics is infinitely preferable to mutually assured destruction and the cataclysm of nuclear war.

However, it is unpardonable that the USA should have funded and armed the Mujahadeen to help them defeat the Russian invasion of Afghanistan. Whatever were they thinking? Obviously the average Afghani WANTED to be occupied by the Soviet Union rather than be oppressed by a Muslim Taliban. A big mistake! No wonder they wanted revenge. I'm stilling waiting for somebody to tell me about all the oil & gas that we're taking from Afghanistan - after all, that's the only reason we went there...........................

Saladin smiles upon Bush & the USA for protecting his Kurdish brothers from Arab persecution.
