I think Noam Chomsky was pretty spot on when he said back in 2001 that the United States was the world's all time leading state sponsor of terrorism. It caused an outrage at the time, but the more you peel back the layers of the onion, the more it appears to be true.
"Everyone’s worried about stopping terrorism. Well, there’s really an easy way: Stop participating in it."
— Noam Chomsky
