Not your father's fault - or anyone else who served in the armed forces.
When it comes to governments that's different.
Without going back too far in time , Afghanistan wasn't doing too bad under
the Russians - women had the right to education and to wear what they liked.
It was a relatively stable and prosperous country for that part of the
world. Along comes Uncle Sam and gives old Osama and his mujahideen pals
lots of money and arms ( and cia training ) to kick out the Russians in a
bloody war and the muslims take charge - first thing they do is stop poppy
growing - no more heroin . Good thing huh? But the women are back in the
stone age. Then Al and the quieda's ( Osama's backing group ) start kicking
up shit and biting the hand that armed them - so in goes Uncle Sam and he's
still in there .The next thing you know - poppy/heroin production is at an
all time high - Yay ! Good thing huh? The country's in ruins , your soldiers
are being killed , the civilians are being killed- and your government
bloody well
started it !Old Osama and his gang got their start with the good 'ol US of
Governments start it and the population , on all sides , bear the brunt.
The words stir and hornets and nest spring to mind.
This is a rant against your ( and with Iraq - my ) government, not the poor
buggers who are in the firing line - which may be you or me soon.

p.s. you forgot south america - but the cia do a good job so no troops
