Our government is also helping Al Qaeda in Syria. At least Iran also backs the government.
I don’t believe anything our government says about the Middle East.
Maybe what you really mean, is that, like most of us, you pretty much don't believe anything the government says about anything.
I lived in the middle east five years and KNOW that Americans and our government haven't CLUE ONE about the middle east. Never have. Never will.
My husband concluded after three months there that the middle easterners simply THINK differently about EVERYTHING than we do. They have TOTALLY different values and expectations about EVERYTHING.
My read: we have nothing in common with them but our vertebral column.
Our government is also supporting Iran atom program with feigned “failed pleas” with money to stop them... in the name of opening talks and reset buttons.... a nice fund raise on emotional air.
