So we need to let them have whatever government they're willing to put together and put up with. It's none of America's business, nor should it be.As someone who has been to that portion of the world more times than I'd like to remember, I can say unequivocally that power and strength speak more to people of the ME than anything else. They don't care if someone is kind or compassionate. That is weak to them. Power and strength represent leadership to them.
The rabbit hole has been there ever since the discovery of oil, my friend. Both Bush administrations just dug it deeper.Our gov't has basically sent us down a rabbit hole that we can't remove ourselves from.
And the rabbit hole won't close up until after the oil is gone.
They don't have enough people or enough money. Besides, they're fighting one another at least half the time.Every time we've interfered in the ME in the past 35-40 years, it's stoked the flame that is currently burning. Now, we're at the point where we can't walk away from the fire because it will spread here if we do.
Complete and utter bull****. He'd been out of office for 9 months by then, which was more than enough time for the government to get its act together - if it hadn't become so corrupt.Clinton attempted to pull away from over there more than anyone and it led to Sept 11.
All the more reason not to waste time and lives in some disenfranchised sand pit on the other side of the planet.People of the ME have long memories. They don't have Twitter and Facebook and all of these other distractions (for the most part). They still spread their info via word of mouth, books, and during their religious gatherings. As a result, we are the demon and always will be. No matter what we do, we will stay that way.

Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
