So America provided a massive flow of weapons into Syria for its favored rebel groups in Syria. But often within weeks or months these weapons ended up in the hands of ISIS or Al Qaida.

America has become quite a scourge in the world.

Sophisticated weapons the U.S. military secretly provided to Syrian rebels quickly fell into the hands of the Islamic State,
The arms included anti-tank weapons purchased by the United States that ended up in possession of the Islamic State within two months of leaving the factory,

In which case Russia is also a major supplier ISIS - look at all the weapons captured from Assad's Syrian army - mostly originally supplied from Russian factories.

The USA has been arming, funding and training ISIS type groups since 1979. See Operation Cyclone.

Afghan freedom fighters fighting the USSR are hardly ISIS-type.

Clarification.

The Showbama adminstration armed ISIS. And also the Al Nursa / Al Qaeda / Fraud Syrian Army. Very few Americans knew of it. They were never informed as to what was occurring.

The Fake News Media kept the real facts from getting to the American public.

Oil wealth from Qatar and the KSA also got to ISIS.

And it found it's way to the Clinton Foundation as well.

The Zbigniew Brzezinski approach to destabilization.

The Mujahideen included Islamic militants.
That's their own business - maybe if the Soviet Union hadn't invaded in 1979 there wouldn't have been so many Afghans radicalised and militant in the first place.

Maybe, but they were funded by the seppo tax payer, and they weren't fighting solely to free Afghanistan from Red army invaders.

Did this happen under Saint Obama ?
No. Nobel peace prize winner Obama. He took his prize & then launched regime change interventions in four countries.

Only Honduras was a bloodless coup. The other three were cathastrophes.

The Afghan Mujahideen were financed and armed by many countries, not just the USA - I have in mind Pakistan, Saudi etc.

Very true, although the CIA were bank rolling ISI too.

I think the OP's point is that a Western Democracy played a major role in creating a monster.

The Iranian revolution was happening anyway. And that released a lot of weaponry and funding for the likes of Hezbollah.

And the wahabbi system in the KSA has been pumping billions into the radicalization of Islamic countries. Wahabbi books, preachers, madrassas, political parties, media organs, etc.

That was occurring regardless of the Kremlin or the Pentagon.

The best answer to Wahabbi nonsense and it's rival in Tehran - the works of Harris, Dawkins and Hitchens.

HARVEYWOOD.

I am reminded of that embarrasing introduction to one of the Rambo films. In many ways it was possibly the most artisti element of the entire series.

Some idiot decided that the film should be dedicated to freedom fighters in Afghanistan.

Presumably they were not thinking about educators trying to bring literacy to the children. Or any women hoping for equality or dignity.

I believe Western Democracy played only a minor role, certainly with respect to the conflict in Afghanistan in the 1980s.
It was a war against an invasion and occupation - the Afghans fighting the USSR and its allies were going to find the weapons and funding in any case.

It's a bit like you saying that NORAID played a major role in the conflict in Norn Iron, when really there is a bit more to the conflict than that.
