Actually, we've been destabilizing the whole area well beyond Afghanistan since the days of "All the Shah's Men" (if you've ever read that book). I'm just commenting on the current situation, not on all our past actions. And frankly, our actions have stunk to high heaven for decades.
Thanks for mentioning this book, I've been wanting to read something about this for awhile, it looks great.
@allezfred Your anger and frustration are understandable but I feel like you're taking it out on the wrong person.
