Ha, and here I was thinking the Americans created and funded the mujahadeen to defeat the Soviets. No mention of Saudis, Turks, Qatar, UAE all of whom funded, supported and armed Al Queda and ISIS. No mention of US supplying thousands of Toyota trucks, weapons, training to "moderate terrorists" who apparaently only kill moderately, no mention of all these air drops to the wrong side .... oh silly me, another load of weapons dropped to the baddies.

Unfortunately, there's always blowback, and we in Europe will pay the price, whilst the Yanks bar all muslims from even going to Disneyland.
