Trump's disingenuous Middle East talking point

A quick thought on Donald Trump's statement during the debate last night about the Middle East.  Specifically, Trump mentioned, and has also done so numerous times in the past, that all the current problems in the Middle East are a result of the invasion of Iraq.

IT'S NOT TRUE.

Israel has been the despised focal point of Arabic countries since even before it's existence in 1948.  Israeli athletes were killed during the Munich Olympics in 1972. The Iranians took American hostages in 1979. The World Trade Center was attacked in 1995.

Those are but a few examples.  It's a complex issue that goes back centuries.

Trump is either uninformed or deliberately disingenuous.
