Why America Funds Some Terrorist Groups And Not Others

There is an old saying that goes something like this: “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” And that same logic is often applied in the world of global conflict. At times your own interests are best served by assisting those who are able to help you at the present moment, even if their long term plans differ from your own. This logic has been applied for ages, and is still alive and well in the Middle East today. Governments like the United States of America are forced to make rational decisions about which actions will create the most good at the present moment. As a result, we have been providing supplies, funding, and training to would-be terrorist groups that are willing to combat our enemies.

Reagan Meeting With Afghan Fighters In White House

Like President Reagan in the 1980’s who helped support Afghan fighters, today’s presidents must also choose between the lesser of two evils. (Image from Wikipedia)

This works like Afghanistan in the 1980’s, where the American government provided military grade weapons to Afghan rebels in order to uproot Russian influence in the region. After the immediate needs of the US government were met, and the Afghans helped repel the Russian forces from their own lands, America withdrew its aid. That assistance allowed for Afghanistan to essentially earn their independence from the Soviet Union, but it did nothing to help establish a stable long-term government. The end result was a destabilized region that ripe for the picking of terrorist organizations like Al-Qaeda and the Taliban.

Today we fund rebel organizations in Syria that are currently fighting against ISIS, but those same groups are also seen as terrorists by the Syrians who are fighting a civil war against those same forces. In the meantime, many local governments are thankful for the assistance that this provides, but these groups are working independently to establish their own rule over the region. Shiites, Kurds, and other ethnic groups are all combating each other to gain independence and power.

All of this chaos and pandemonium afford the US a chance to remain partially uninvolved in the conflict so that we do not need to commit as many troops and funds to fighting these groups. We found the groups that were willing to do the dirty work for us and are giving them the supplies and assistance that they need to be moderately successful.
