    When was there peace in Europe? Are you referring to the Pax Americana? If so that was in spite of Europe, not because of it.
    And that pales in comparison to Arabs in the ME, who make Euro's seem downright reasonable.

    And yet... the biggest war the ME has had doesn't even come close to WWII.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

It just confirmed to the world that Obama has his head stuck up his ass and can't be trusted as an allie.

    What really caused the entire Middle East and North Africa becoming the basket case it is today is was when Barak Obama threw a long time American/Western World allie under the bus, President Mubarak who protected Israels southern flank and kept the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda, fascist Islam and the jihdatist in check. Obama came out publicly supporting the "Arab Spring."

    When one of the first acts of Obama when he took the oath of POTUS (twice) and has failed to uphold was when he kicked the bust of Winston Churchill out of the White House and returned it to the British Embassy. Basically flipping off our # 1 allie in the world.

    It was a dead giveaway what would follow in the Obama administration.
    I'm not going to disagree with that. I stand corrected, as the Tomahawks were his first use of force in his acts that I know of, which I will call treasonous. Though this is a different debate.

    Mubarak was deposed by a POPULAR uprising. How did Obama throw anyone under the bus. Was he suppose to help Mubarak stay in power against the will of the people? And if so, why there and not Syria. And do I understand that you consider Obama's action in Libya to be treason?
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    If the arabs had the technology and industrial capacity of the west, it might surpass European nations in WW2.
