Only the Saddam part is correct. The Taliban didn’t exist during the Afghan/Soviet war. They were children then. The Taliban was formed after the war in Afghan refugee camps in Pakistan in 1994 and took over Afghanistan in 1996. The US supported Afghan mujaheddin militants against the Soviets, some of whom had similar ideology as that of the Taliban, but it was not the Taliban. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taliban

The US has never funded or worked with Al Qaeda and Al Qaeda would never work with or for the USA. McCain met with Free Syrian Army not Al Qaeda. The Free Syrian Army was started by formerly peaceful protesters who formed a militia in response to violence against them from the Assad regime. Al Qaeda opposes the Free Syrian Army as it was formed by an alliance of of “pro-democracy” ” Sunnis aligned with the Muslim Brotherhood which has repudiated Al Qaeda (70% of Syria is Sunni) and liberal Syrian secularists who have suffered for decades under the Assad dynasty. There were some Christians, Druze, and even a tiny number of Alawites in the FSA.
Al Nusra was the primary Al Qaeda front in Syria and they have been at war with FSA for years now. ISIS, which used to be Al Qaeda in Iraq led by Zarqawi, is the group responsible for the most deaths of Iraqi civilians and Iraqi and US troops since the fall of Saddam. When Zarqawi was killed Al Qaeda in Iraq became ISI and continued it’s war against Iraqi civilians, Iraqi Shia, the Iraqi government and US troops. An Iraqi who goes by the alias Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who was once arrested and interrogated by US troops, rose through the ranks.
ISI became ISIS (adding “Shams” which refers to Syria and the Levant) and entered the Syrian conflict with the agenda of carving out an Islamic state in Syria and Iraq. They tried to take over Al Nusra and partially succeeded. ISIS has massacred many troops of FSA fighters (the ones McCain met with, the ones the US and Turkey have supported). ISIS was even kicked out of the Al Qaeda network for being too violent too often with other Sunnis.

Al Qaeda aligned groups like Al Nusra and Ansar Sharia have tried with varying degrees of success to hijack the revolutions in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and Syria. Anyone who tells you they are the rebels is lying to you. They have come in from around the world and tried to steal the revolutions from the people of those countries who in all four cases protested peacefully, Muslims and secularists alike, against corrupt oppressive dictatorships.
For some real daily news about Syria try talking to some Syrian atheists who have been opposing Assad since long before the war started and have lost loved ones to Assad and the jihadists alike.https://www.facebook.com/…/Syrian…/363191530386710…
We are atheists from Syria, looking for promoting human rights, critical free thinking and the total, absolute separation of government and religion.

Aysha Besher No, i mean do you miss having a country intact, no civil war, no destroyed cities, no hearts torn and eaten, no thousands as refugees, no threat of sharia, no terrorist armies, no hundreds killed just for being alevites, etc.? Damn it. I only saw your country for a few days and I feel awful for what has happened. Maybe you deserve the jihadists.

Syrian Atheists Do you mean I miss suppression, abusive police, corruption, being afraid of criticizing the government, and not to mention that a father give the presidency to his son like it’s a property of his own?!!
Do I miss that the good people in the authority are damned and fought by the the mafia of Assad family?!
Do I miss that the Syrian law says that Syria is a secular country, while Assad changed the constitution to say that the president of Syria should be a Muslim?!!!
…No I don’t!
And lady, do you know that Assad pulled his forces from the borders, letting these bastards?! And do you know that til this moment he did not make an effective strike against them?!
There is a lot to say and talk about, before you even think to ask me such question..
Al Qaeda would have killed McCain.
