I don’t think you understand the full extend of damage which U.S. businessmen and U.S. power players have inflicted on the world because of their greed. You naively think U.S. foreign polices have been a force for good when they have caused so much suffering and have even promoted some of the very things you complain about (and did so as a cynical tactic to sabotage independent economic development in foreign countries) Case in point:
US officials literally shipped Korans and weapons to Jihadists telling them to do Jihad. Look at Afghanistan:
“In August 1979, three months before the Soviet intervention, a classified State Department Report stated: ‘the United States’s larger interests … would be served by the demise of the Taraki-Amin regime, despite whatever setbacks this might mean for future social and economic reforms in Afghanistan. … the overthrow of the D.R.A. [Democratic Republic of Afghanistan] would show the rest of the world, particularly the Third World, that the Soviets’ view of the socialist course of history as being inevitable is not accurate.'” http://www.doublestandards.org/blum6.html
There was a “large following of people who favored reforms and didn’t want to live under a fundamentalist Islamic government” and you think it was OK to support Muslim fundamentalist extremists?
Many improvements were being made in Afghanistan, girls were going to school. The U.S. actions destroyed that by backing extremist fundamentalists, backing them with BILLIONS of dollars. The CIA was literally shipping Korans and weapons. You think it was a good idea to encourage violent Muslim fundamentalism? http://representativepress.blogspot.com/2008/03/subscription-is-peaceful-and-decent-way.html
