"We overthrew Iran's elected leader in 1953. They WERE a democracy. They took our hostages in retaliation.
We funded Saddam's rise to power in Iraq. He used that power to invade Kuwait. It took 2 wars to oust him from power.
To stop Saddam's invasion on Kuwait,we built a military base on Islamic holy land in Saudi Arabia. This is one of the reasons Bin Laden gave for the attacks on 9/11.
We funded Mubarak in Egypt. His people eventually overthrew him.
We propped up Gaddafi in Libya. His people eventually overthrew him.
All this meddling costs trillions of dollars, caused millions of deaths in the middle east and resulted in tens of thousands of dead American soldiers.
And you call my foreign policy "wacky"??
