239. Fahd invited US troops into SA.
The US has done plenty of heinous things that would explain acts of violent "blowback", but stationing troops for defensive purposes in an ally's country at their request isn't one of them.

Allowing the most extreme murderous religious nuts to dictate our relations with allied countries is crazy.

If Bin Laden had any balls at all he would have gone full bore against King Fahd (the real guy who 'defiled' Mecca by asking US troops to build a base there)
