I mean, I'm as anti-Putin as the rest of them as an American, but we can't just ignore the CIA funding the Taliban (and by extension, Al Qaeda) during the Russian occupation of Afghanistan nor can we ignore the British backing both Zionist and Palestinian terror groups in Palestine prior to, during, and after WWI. To say that Russia singlehandedly created modern terrorism is to simply ignore all of history.
