Lemme ask ya'll this... during the cold war, BOTH the US and CCCP used smaller countries as pawns, right?
Let's make a quick list of the major hotspots during the time:
Well damn, lookit that, it's familiar! Southeast asia, the middle east, and north korea, the biggest problem spots in the world are in there. Let's
see if I can boil this down for you, since people are atrophied when it comes to history.
A) Almost all of SouthEast Asia has a great hatred of the US, due to the Vietnam war and the aftershocks thereof. Mayeb that's why virulently
anti-American Islam has flourished there!
B) The Americans used extreme Islam to combat the Russian influence in Afghanistan, training Osama Bin Laden, and giving him plenty of fun munitions.
C) the CCCP used anti-semetic extreme Islam to try to obliterate the state of Isreal, after seeing it as a foothold in the region. Durign this time,
both sides gave huge amounts of munitions to everyone.
Gee, thanks superpowers. You screwed up the world for the rest of us.
