Title: The Heat discusses US foreign policy in the Middle East. Source: CCTV America. Date Published: February 26, 2015. Description: 
With Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Libya all ravaged by conflict, ISIL is gaining ground and Israelis and Palestinians are still no closer to peace. Has U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East and North Africa failed?
Does this question even need to be asked? The answer is in-your-face.

The video below also forgot to mention that the Taliban is set to reclaim what it lost in Afghanistan in the coming years with Pakistan's help, and all the while the U.S. is paying Pakistan. Obviously, the U.S. is not to blame for everything that has gone wrong in Afghanistan. The leaders of Pakistan must take responsibility. But if history is any guide, don't count on that happening any time soon. They're not smart enough to change course. They will back the Taliban and other terrorist groups in Afghanistan until middle class Pakistani society can no longer bear the costs of blowback.
