Actually, Saudi Arabia requested US military aid to protect them from Afghan militants threatening their country. Bin Laden did not like the US military in Saudi Arabia. So, technically Saudi Arabia created it.

France has been waging war against Al-Qaeda in Mali almost all by themselves.
When America does similar there is international outrage and rampant activism by anti-war and peace-protestors, TV-Commentators, Academics and the international LEFT in general. Why is that totally lacking when France does the same? Is it because France currently has a socialist Government? Or is it only "Imperialism", "Aggression" and "Warmongering" when the USA does it? Or does the left finally see that Al-Qaeda are NOT a mere myth/conspiracy/false-flag of Israel/USA?

firstly there are plenty of right wingers who oppose american activities overseas, on ats as well as elsewhere - there is no need for a left or right political leaning to have any bearing on one's view to any countries involvement militarily abroad.
this in no way defines the left or the right, it is simply a case of who falls for the BS excuses for exploitation of other nations and the underhand methods to continue the so-called and deceptive war on terror, beit the US, france, the UK or whoever is currently the standard bearer for western governments domination and interference.
and ofc AQ is a creation of the west, then bodies abroad took ownership of the term as a rallying cry, covered in great detail on these boards amongst a wealth of other places.
as the "big guy" the US cops the flak, maybe it should be shared around a bit more, but as i read another poster state else where, and i paraphrase
"when america farts, we all have to smell it" (copy right LesMisanthrope iirc)... at present british and french farts dont have the same volume and projectile power, you just have the misfortune not to live in the eighteenth or nineteen centuries, in which case we would be in an alehouse slagging off mostly britain and france.

you are right. We are the source of all evil. I cant wait for your country to blow up our death star we built to conquer the world because we are like that.
But your dribble has a price.
When the US is not there, who is the UN and NATO going to send when an international incident happens? France, Greece? China is the only one capable...Are you going to be happy living in a world where China is policing everyone? If you ever disagree with them, just go through their system of international oversight to have your issues addressed accordingly. You know the one they will be happy to bow to the way the US does so that everyone feels equal, even though they are not.
OK.....have fun with that. We have been policing the world without a real need to for the last 70 years. Think you can do better? Think you an afford it, stomach it? OK...
THEN DO IT...
