By the way very interesting

By the way very interesting thought about it all being done intentionally. The pattern of overthrowing moderate regimes and replacing them with radical islamic ones (Iraq, Libya, Syria, etc- while selling it to the public as fighting radical islamic terror) seems to confirm your point. The question is whether this is unintentional blowback (result of institutional stupidity) or, as you suggested, the policymakers are not too stupid to realize the outcomes. Wasn't the end result of the Iraq war simply make one of Iran's worst enemies an ally?
