It doesn't take a lot of understanding to figure out why, we here in America seem to always be the target of aggression by extremist organizations.

Do we even have to wonder why the world is facing a global crisis of epic proportions. Is it really any wonder why we are seeing a massive influx of war refugees into Europe from countries listed as having been bombed practically into oblivion.

This should really not come as a surprise to anyone. Stop dropping bombs and people can go home. Stop dropping bombs, it only fuels the hatred and further serves to embolden and enlist others into a cause that seriously poses grave dangers to us all.

It makes no sense. I guess it's fair to say we're our own worst enemy.

Council of Foreign Relations resident skeptic Micah Zenko recently tallied up how many bombs the United States has dropped on other countries and the results are as depressing as one would think. Zenko figured that since Jan. 1, 2015, the U.S. has dropped around 23,144 bombs on Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia, all countries that are majority Muslim.

America is in the business of war. Largest armament manufactures, sell them to anyone, then go fight them.

Some ISIS weapons are manufactured in America probably sold via a 3rd party broker. Business is Business.

That number needs more zeros at the end of it, and a new commander in chief behind them.

Hmmmm you sure about that?

I see Russian AK-47s, RPGs, Tanks, APCs, Heavy Machineguns, AA Systems, etc. The American stuff is mostly what was captured from the cowardly Iraqi forces during their repeated retreats.

ISIS weapons

I just wish we wouldn't waste all that money bombing people.

Maybe we could use it to fix infrastructure and help people here at home instead?

And we wonder why a lot of Muslims become radicalized and hate the USA. Wow.

Way to show your anti-American bias. I notice you don't include the figures for the number of bombs dropped on the United States by muslim countries in 2015.

How convenient you left that information out.

I'm clearly misinformed if that's the case.

If they had the capability, the number would be every bomb they could get ahold of.

Absolutely.

That's why the U.S aren't bombing the likes of North Korea or Russia, they bite back.

But we do and we haven't dropped every bomb we have, not even close which makes the premise of this whole thread a joke.

Go home, America. You're drunk.

I think the poster might be disputing the number, not calling for more deaths. I could be wrong.
