    Didn't the US engage in some nation building in Libya?

    On Wednesday Russia blamed Western countries for creating the current turmoil in Africa by arming Libyan rebels, Timothy Heritage and Gabriela Baczynska of Reuters report.

    "Those whom the French and Africans are fighting now in Mali are the [same] people who ... our Western partners armed so that they would overthrow the Gaddafi regime," Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told a news conference.

    They're probably correct. There are already reports that have confirmed Libyan weapons that the US supplied were recovered at the Gas Plant in Algeria. Word is that we have also armed the opposition in Syria.

    This new Islamic Caliphate will end up being Obama's most enduring legacy.

    The US has always had a shitty record on nation building. Eisenhower screwed up for Christ sake. Did anyone expect obama to have better luck?

    Considering Obama isnt even bothering to really try to nation build these nations he leaves power vaccuums in, is it any wonder that he hasnt succeeded?

    Cant believe im agreeing with the Russians about ousting Qaddaffi being a bad idea.

    I read the article and you rightwing twits are like trained seals....Blame Obama for everything. The article clearly uses the term "western countries". Oh, that's right....you twits can't read past the headlines either. Sound bites and six-word phrases only...and oh yeah, American history started in 2009.

    Remember, Obama lead from behind? We are part of the West are we not? We did send in bombers, did we not?

    Obama’s War Turned Libya into Another Afghanistan

    Obama’s illegal Libyan War is escalating into a greater disaster with over a thousand French troops fighting the Al Qaeda linked terrorists who have taken over Northern Mali and a hostage crisis in Algeria involving Americans and Europeans carried out by Islamist terrorists who came out of Libya.

    Not only has Obama lost the War in Afghanistan, but he has managed to turn North Africa into the new Afghanistan.

    but of course that could be true, but reading the headlines sure indicates what they are saying about the results of the west's interference sure seems right.
