To any historians...
please point out the falsity in what is said about the "begining of conflict" here.
From what i studied, the "war" has been going on as long as the people have settled those lands... thousands of years... with very few "quiet
moments" in all of history.
Much like Iraq... the only thing that kept peace was the subjugation of 2 of the "minorities" by the heavy handed leadership. If the US had not
done anything, then it would have continued to be "peaceful" but very unpleaseant for two of the 3 main cultures (religions) that occupied that
area. war was inevitable...
one thing that is very funny, is that for some time, the US had backed the muslim minority when no one else would, but the US will get no credit for
that from a muslim country now.
as the ol saying goes, "no good deed goes unpunished".
but seriously, no one should be very proud of anything that happened during that conflict... everyone was guilty of some bad decision somewhere.
much like israel and palestine...
