My answer to How has the American government aided worldwide terrorism?
Answer by Ken Larson:
By not understanding key cause and effect relationships in the Middle East over the last 15 years.
- The void left by governments as they come and go in Middle East countries occupied by the United States. Our country has failed to understand the cultures involved, the history of the area and the nature of power structures that have existed for hundred of years.
- The supply and sale of weapons to this part of the world and their falling into the hands of extremists.
- The profit motives of huge corporations who have been opportunists in the above on USAID Programs, Military Contractor Services and Logistics.
