    If they are not, they should be. After half a century of American involvement in insurgent wars, one would think Washington has learned from its past mistakes. The term "Blow-back" can be directly applied here. We train Saddam and give him chem weapons. Surprise surprise, we fight him less than a decade later. On the eve of a major political revolution, america sells Iran Chinook and Cobra helicopters. They have dozens of american built F-5s (think MiG-21) and over a hundred F-4 Phantoms. 79 F-14 Tomcat interceptor jets were also purchased (though it is questionable that even 40% of that fleet is even in flying condition.) A french built Roland missile was responsible for the loss of a Marine Cobra. French Mirages were involved in the gassing of the Kurds. In Argentina, British SeaHarriers were engaged by American built A-4 Skyhawks. Two British warships were destroyed by French built Exocet anti-ship missiles fired from Super Entendard strike craft...Surprise! Also from France!
