    MY few thousand protesters? Lol!

    Regardless, whenever SHTF, they call for our help. This is not new.

    What the US supported in Libya:

    Libyan rebel commander admits his fighters have al-Qaeda links
    Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi, the Libyan rebel leader, has said jihadists who fought against allied troops in Iraq are on the front lines of the battle against Muammar Gaddafi's regime.

    Maybe we should go back to when the Iran-Contra affair happened and walk through what actually happened during the Reagan years to the present. I remember the Beirut bombing and after that we got sucked into the problems of the middle east. And remember in those days we were not living in the police state we find ourselves in today.

    This does not negate my point though. The point is when there are issues that need solving, who gets called to get involved? WE do. Do any other countries? Not so much.

    The US has been menacing the ME for one hundred years.

    The US instigates these problems. You still have failed to grasp the policy of destabilisation in the ME. Sorry for you.

    As did the French and Brits, among many, many others. AND countries in the ME have been menacing one another too.

    That used to be the area that was the most toxic here. It's such a divisive issue that can only get fixed in the ME itself.


    That's one of the problems with foreign policy. Whenever something interesting or important happens, you suddenly have a swarm of experts who probably couldn't identify a country on a map or name more than two actors in a given conflict. The rest of the time it's a little boring, and there's no one new to talk with.
    Foreign policy is very difficult, it involves diplomacy but requires the implied threat of punitive action at the exact same time. I know if I were in a position in D.C. requiring global decisions the appointment of Secretary of State and other ambassadors would be my most difficult, and they would be my most vetted positions because of the balancing act t requires.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
