    The number of countries we have lost to the 'Indian' side shows how badly US policy has failed. Iran was our cowboy sidekick. We gave them nuclear tech and installed our own Trail Boss. But our dictator got bucked off and now Iran is Indian. US failure. Iraq was a cowboy, we helped them fight the new Iranian Indians. Then we let them wander into Kuwait, and they became Indians. US failure. Syria became our new cowboy sidekick, they helped us fight the new Iraqi Indians. But when the US lied about the Iraqi Indians having WMD's, Syria left to the Indian side. US failure. Lebanon shook off their Indian occupiers, and started to ride with us. But some of thier Indian occupiers got in a fight with our Jewish Cowboy friends, so now we treat them all like Indians. US failure. The US is failing by letting all the Cowboys turn into Indians. Saudi Arabia and Pakistan are showing signs they will be next. We need more Indians being turned into Cowboys, not the other way around.
