[QUOTE="PWSteal_Ldpinch"]Well in a representative democracy we are at least a little bit accountable for our government's actions. Anyway to answer TC it's because America's foreign policy in the middle east has always been built on a fundamental lack of understanding of the region. Among which is the misunderstanding that any of these countries will exist stably in the long run. What happened in Egypt is the same as what happened in Iran. Just two years before the Iranian Revolution president Carter gave material support to the Shah thinking that Iran was "an island of stability" in the middle east. Repeatedly, American foreign policy has failed to account for the extreme contempt of the US in the Middle East, and American leaders would not be arming these people if these sentiments had been known to them. If you really believe that U.S governments and its various institutions (CIA, State department, U.S Army, Consulates...etc) act with a poor understanding of the region then you are seriously deranged. You may not like their policies if you have the assumption that the average American citizen and they want the same thing which is largely incorrect.The first thing that has to be explained to someone like you is that the US government is not the omniscent and omnipotent entity that you think it is. It is full of stupid people--just look at Congress. The second thing a conspiracy prone arab such as yourself should get over is the fact that 9/11 wasn't some false flag attack by the government to rally the population to war in the middle east.
I didn't know we as a country are held accountable for our government's actions.
Why don't you write a letter to congress and ask them yourself?
The fact is that the US government is made up of regular people. And regular people don't know everything and they occasionaly do stupid things. If they didn't, then we still wouldn't be dicking around in that incurable sh!thole called afghanistan.
