    From the Arab perspective it is even more insulting. Their erspective is that they will bring in TCNs...Third Country Nationals...to do all the demeaning **** work that no Arab should ever deign themselves to do. Thats how they view the US military...TCNs.

    Isn't is cited that Osama Bin Laden was essentially created because of the use of the American military to liberate Kuwait? Didn't he believe it should have been Arabs helping Arabs?
    Im pretty sure that Bin Ladens upset was Afghanistan in the 80s.

    Nah, Blue State is right. Bin Laden originally offered his services to the Saudis, but they turned him down in favor of the U.S. (it seemed they preferred to depend upon "tanks and airplace" vice depending on "the avenging wind of Allah" ). There is no hell like a woman (Islamist, whatever) scorned.

    I'm actually surprised, that people here on DP (and in the media) are so surprised hearing that....

    Oh well.

    Its not just about the money. We should not go to war for someone elses interest. If...IF...it is determined that Assad has been using chemical weapons then I see a just cause for the US to act. Not some weak assed missile strike, but a full out engagement. In order for that to be successful, we need more than just Arab money. We need an openly expressed commitment of support. We need land bases, sea ports, control of air lanes but most importantly the verbalized and expressed support of Muslim leaders. We need a commitment by the Arabs to engage once Assad is ousted and stabilize the country, police it...NOT have the US troops do it. Otherwise...we are sticking soldiers in the middle of a situation where everyone is an enemy.
