"That's like saying that we deserved 9/11 because the US supported bin Laden and his crew in Afghanistan."

Anyone who would say that is an ignoramus because they don't know the facts. We never supported bin Laden during the Afghanistan war. The fact is, no one in our defense department ever heard of Osama Bin Laden during the Afghanistan war. Sure, it's possible that a group he was involved with got money to fight the Soviets, but at that time he was not a terrorist. He was fighting against an invading army. Name one terrorist activity he did in the 80's?

Iran's regime has supported with money and training terrorist groups such as Hamas and the insurgents in Iraq. Russia is stopping us at the UN from implementing tougher sanctions and helping Iran to build their nuclear reactor.

If you don't see that then you are blind and probably belong on Huffington Post writing your posts with the rest of the blind....

I urge you to learn a bit about Osama. In the 80’s he joined Abdullah Yusuf Azzam who was at the time openly calling for “global jihad”.

There is enough blame to pass around, and using the same logic as you did, someone could blame the US itself for the 9/11 attacks because of the support it gave to afghan mujahideen and support of various extremist islamic regimes such as the one in Saudi Arabia...
