Quite a statement considering we've never met, or had a conversation. Do you make wild assumptions about people all the time?

What percentage of terrorist acts perpetrated by Muslims have been committed in countries without a military presence in the middle east? That answer should drive the whole of US policy in the middle east.
Let's see, just off the top of my head, as I recall -
How about the Philippines? True, they was part of the coalition army in 2003-2004 (a grand total of 51 troops for exactly 1 year.). But, the Muslim terrorist group (Abu Sayyaf) began operating in the Philippines in 1991. Long before the short, limited military presence in the Middle East.
How about Nigeria? Chad? Niger? They seem to have a serious problem with Islamic Boko Haram and terrorism. I don't recall Nigeria, Chad, or Niger sending coalition troops to the Middle East.
