Obama’s cringe-worthy line claiming Middle East conflicts “date back millennia”
The highest political leader in the world decided to talk as a history emeritus buff on Islam history instead of admitting that the US was the main culprit for this current wave of Islamic extremism in the last 3 decades.

In that Cold War period, nobody allied to the US would dare get out of line: Either you are in or out and borders were supposed to be respected and wars totally controlled.
