    again - if we're talking strictly arming terrorists, almost every president i can think of has armed them. at the time *maybe* they were on *our* side but we never seem to learn they are not on our side, only using us like we're using them.

    i'm not talking specifically obama. i'm talking historically what we have done with weapons left after a war. arming terrorists is a totally different topic i'm not going to get into cause again - i think all have done it sooner or later regardless of what the intent was at the time.

    great - but not because he left military hardware behind as that sounds like standard practice.

    Except we had no legal reason to hold them. They hadn't committed any crime against Americans and we weren't legally at war with Afghanistan at that point.

    WTF?

    WE WERE FIGHTING A WAR IN AFGHANISTAN AGAINST THE TALIBAN. (There was never a declared end to the war against the Taliban!)

    OBAMA RELEASED ENEMY COMMANDERS IN THE MIDDLE OF A WAR IN AN EFFORT TO KEEP A CAMPAIGN PROMISE TO CLOSE GITMO.

    Most of the weapons used by the Viet Cong were American made. You`ve found a nothing burger.

    Russia, America, Great Britain, China and Israel.

    More players than you realize, oh and Iran and North Korea with the blessing of Russia and China and hell even our own damn government!

    Did anyone order a proxy-war today?
