Foreign Policy question I need confirmation pleaseSubmitted by rufrignkidnme on Sat, 12/31/2011 - 23:28
A common neocon response to the idea of bringing our troops home from the bases in the Middle East is that they will follow us back here. And so, they reason, we must fight and kill them there so they won't come to our homes and kill us here.
However, I recall that the soviets were pretty much fighting the EXACT same people... in that conflict we were playing the role of Iran in giving arms and stinger missiles and yadda yadda but any way.
This is what I need confirmed. When the soviets finally did leave the Middle East, did the terrorists follow them?
Seems to me we have recent evidence that these al Qaeda people launch rpgs against any foreign nation patrolling their sand... anyway. Thanks for the feed back if there is any.
