Damien.... the point is that USA sticks their noses into others countries problems and tries to solve it for them, and then creates more problems in the future. For example when Russia was at war with Afghanistan the USA supplied weapons to those terrorists such as Osama Bin Laden, which was fighting against the Russians. In the end they made a problem in giving weapons to more terrorists.

Well... the Afghanistan support was to contain Communism.
What if the USSR had won in Afghanistan? they could have joined up with India and India, under the pressure of the USSR's forces so close by may have been coerced into joining forces.

What we have is simply an imbalance of power. When there was a USSR, there was a need for America's presence world wide. Now that there is no USSR, a lot of countries are questioning America's presence.

Now as for 9/11... I don't think that tells the whole picture.

But I like Winston Churchill's quote. He's everything you want in a leader.

I believe the Afghanis felt we didn't help enough. We supplied them primarily with anti-aircraft weapons.

But if you're going to blame anyone for the taliban, look to Pakistan. Not to mention the stockpiles Soviet Russia left, no doubt.

Well its anywhere USSR or Russia went they supported the countries against USSR or Russia. Also if they supported the country from communism being spread, why shouldn't RUSSIA support Iraq with weapons?? We should stop USA from spreading Democracy?? Is that how it works?

The problem wasn't giving people like Osama weapons, it was what we did afterwords that caused problems, abandoning the Afganhis to try and take care of themselves rather than helping to rebuild.

Let us see what happened that last two times that the US did not "Stick our noses into other countries problems." Ever hear of the Great War? Or World War II? You know, when the US tried to let you guys solve your own problems, we all know how that turned out. See what happens is these regional problems tend to spread, and eventually become global problems, so we step in before it can spread.

If that was within your power I am sure you would try to do that, but alas, you lack the ability to do such so therefore you are delegated to a position that is a shadow of your former strength and influence, besides, why would Russia want to stop the spread of Democracy? You are Democratic yourselves now, or is it that the same people are in charge in Russia with only a change in name?

Um, you use democracy, so why is supporting Saddam justified after the cold war? Not that the proxy wars should be justified, anyways.

Also, thanks to the US minding our own business, your country got seven decades of communism. The US, along with the UK, made an expedition to Russia during the civil war, backing the white Russians. But ah, we let you fix it yourselves....

Euro spike the actions in Chechnya is strickly because of terrorists and that those people cant run their own country and they pose a threat to others countries around them. There is always terrorist that try to control Chechnya. And if they do it will be trouble for all.
