The bitter truth be known, the American people, the British people, Germany etc are thoroughly sick and tired of being involved in the middle east. It is painfully obvious to those who honestly assess our efforts that they don’t sustain a lasting peace and our investments in nation building seems to readily get torn down by the enemies to peace. Al Qaeda is a patient enemy and coupled with the mullahs in Iran, the obstruction of Russia and China as they wait in the wings makes the prospect for peace nigh on impossible.
Unfortunately what we generate are enemies who murder and destroy in our country and rationalize their actions by our involvement in the middle east. Add to that the deafening silence by the Muslim community in the United States regarding the atrocities committed in the U.S. Sadly I come to the conclusion that the terrorists, Assad and his type will continue to rely on terrorist actions and a complete disregard for human life to maintain their grip on power. It seems to be the situation of trying to kill the multi-headed snake.
