    Ike had his little problem with Lebanon. Then Ronnie had that little Beirut problem with our Marines. Then the Bush double down fiascos in Iraq. Oh, and then Afghanistan.

    Carter of course had a little Iran problem, that was complicated a lot more by under the table “Ronnie work” than the Ayatollah.


    Maybe not just our presidents, but our nation, (and chickenhawks in Congress) should realize we can’t run the Middle East, though Mobil oil had a lot stronger stranglehold than our government ever has.

    Bush got in there and stired up the hornets nest real good.

    What a waste these 8 years will be. Cleaning up and paying for this mess will take generations.

    The Big O is too busy spying on Americans to turn his attention to the rest of the world.

    We’ve BEEN running the Middle East. That’s the problem. Just about all the tyrants and maniacs there were on our payroll and in a lot of cases installed by our government.

    In the ‘40s, the US produced more than 50% of the world’s oil and didn’t care that much about the Middle East, except for getting the Nazis out of there.


    Then, of course, there was the ’48 election, when Truman ordered Europe to empty all the Jewish concentrationrefugee camps and send all the Jews to Palestine. It is not at all clear to me that that was the only option (my father said he favoured Madagascar over Palestine), but it did win Truman the election.

    Those pictures are secret evidence of Obama’s attitude toward the idiocy that is Right-wing ’Murica. The little outlet that probably keeps him from exploding. Fair enough.

    My father-in-law said “They should have given us New York. That would have prevented a lot of problems.”

    Remind me again which American President it was that brought lasting and eternal peace to the Middle East?

    “Remind me again which American President it was that brought lasting and eternal peace to the Middle East?”

    The one who ended the policy by which we install, arm, and support brutal dictators in the region provided that they serve our economic interests.

    In other words, none yet, but still hoping.

    “I cannot imagine any American President “telling” Europe anything…
    England play a major role in this….as were are basically an isolationist nation , and still are to an extent…”


    Given that the U.S. Army was occupying all of Western Europe, Truman was the one who decided whether surviving Jews would be allowed to emigrate to Israel. He had to lean hard on the Brits to get their agreement, but they were dependent on American loans to keep afloat.

    I’m not sure you could call a country that had been staging military interventions around the globe for over a century by 1945, ‘isolationist’. American oil companies had been operating in the Middle East since the 1920s.

    Madagascar?? Aside from the notion that I doubt any Jews were willing to settle there (sending Jews to Madagascar was a Nazi plan), it’s not like there weren’t locals who would have been upset at a Zionist community in their midst.

    “Wrong you are, The Middle East has been one huge Mess since The Crusades.”

    That’s just not true. During the Ottoman heyday, the region was more peaceful than most of Europe was at the time. Jews did far better under Muslim rule than Crusader rule. “Better” meaning treated as second class citizens to be controlled & exploited as opposed to being massacred for heresy.
