    Since some of those “moderates” sold our people to the ISIL to be murdered I’d tread carefully over there.

    We have only one true “friend” in the middle East! That being Israel. And if you Stand with Israel the USA should stand with you. But what is sad is the way Obama has treated Israel and supported the likes of the Muslim Brotherhood, oops Egypt lost a Year when that happened. But the good that came out of it? Egypt and Israel working together. The bad? They would rather work with Each other then the FAILURE that is Obama and Kerry!

    I can’t wait to find out who Congress decides is our ally(s) in the region.


    Especially, McCain and Graham, who wanted to invade Syria on the side of those who turned out to be ISIS.

    Messing in the Middle East, the only thing stupider than engaging in a ground war in Asia. Oh, wait, the Middle East IS “Asia”.


    BTW, just checking my old (1929) world Atlas, and reviewing that versus today in both the Middle East, East Asia, and “Russia” would be educational for a few folks. It’s interesting that “Palestine” is “Palestine”, Pakistan doesn’t exist, nor does Iraq on one map of the world but it does on the “Asia” map- as it had just been created. The number of U.S. territories and possessions is also interesting, like the Philippines and other areas.

    In the Mideast, all you need to be allies with someone is for the both of you to hate another group more than you hate each other.

    wow, talk about dissolution! They are going on their own cus Obama is the coward! Mitt understood the situation over there, Obama has no clue and Obama Biden, Kerry and Hillary all back Muslim Brotherhood interest and Obama goes on apology don’t hurt us tours, And you call Israel “coward” Tell you what, you go over there and find one of the 35 tunnels leading into Israel, follow it back to the childcare center it was placed on, and then you will see a bunch of cowards.

    That’s unfair to Israel. They’re the one country in the region that would make it impossible for any other to step up. It was the same in Gulf I; we paid them to stay on the side-lines. It’s no reflection on their willingness that we don’t want them in a coalition (and never have)

    Obama is smart enough to be trying to get us out of the entire Middle East . We didn’t “break it in the first place”, as many of those who advocate American participation claim. Middle Eastern society has been broken for longer than the United States has existed. In the history of that region, peace has been a rare situation, always imposed by a government strong enough to prevent people who would otherwise be shooting (or throwing spears at) each other from doing so. It can’t be any different when the majority of people would shoot each other over religious differences that would be considered trivial by anyone who had any education that involved more than one book. And, those who are uneducated are convenient tools to gain power for those few who are not, which provides encouragement to keep them uneducated.But the saying " the enemy of my enemy is my friend" does not apply in this case. Each side is our enemy. We are “infidels”, making us more “killable” to each side than the other side and going over there to interfere is of no value to the American people. We need to simply stand back, allow them to manage their affairs however they would if we didn’t exist, and maybe in a few hundred years they will work it out. Once they realize that we have lost interest in them, perhaps they will return the favor and ignore us too. Killing each other is a more immediate goal.In those cases where we can infuse some actual education into the mix, that probably would be helpful— which is why they hate teachers more than soldiers. But military interference from America accomplishes nothing except creating hatred for our country, and leaving tanks, guns and bullets where they can be used to prolong the fighting. Granted, mutual hatred for America could bring the two sides together sooner than might otherwise be the case, to attack us, but that doesn’t seem to me to be a desirable outcome. Ultimately, each country belongs to the citizens of that country, and until they fix it themselves, it ain’t fixed.

    Cheney’s war to garb Iraq’s oil seems to have lasted longer than 2 or 3 weeks, and not paid for itself yet.
