Let me start by saying that I couldn't find a topic that I was interested in so finally I will contribute. Be part of the solution not the problem.

Actually it seems to me the problem is that we (the US) keep forming alliances with violent monsters. We backed the Mujahideen (With Bin Laden) to keep Russia out of the Mid East. We helped Saddam Hussein accumulate chemical weapons of mass destruction. We backed several other monsters before going after our former ally Bin Laden; then we allied with the Afghan drug-lords to help prop up our influence there.
If we actually labeled the evil groups as evil, instead of labeling them as friends and heroes; I think we'd have a more honorable history and more peaceful future.
