I usually delete the absurd parts of a post. I do this with all.<quoted text>
And curiously, you didn't quote the rest of my post.
You're right. Why should the US do that when Muslims themselves will do that? And even if they help0ed, people would only end up hating them even more. They always do because they have to. The US needs to be the number one excuse for all of their failures, so you don't expect people to drop that, do you?
I think that Obama has the crazy idea that if Syria becomes a democracy, they will stop shipping weapons to Hezbollah. Are you kidding me? Whoever takes over is going to be even worse. There will never be a reasonable, responsible democracy in the Middle East. They just don't think that way because Islam dominates every part of their mind. This is being proven all over the Middle East and the "Arab Spring" is a disaster.
People in the Middle East need to be ruled by dictators. Who would have thought that all of those years where people blamed the US for supporting Middle East dictators, that the US would end up being right for doing that? Maybe that's one of the few right decision they ever made about the Middle East, and now they aren't even doing that part right.
Democracy Western style can never work in other parts of the world. Leaders of the Western regimes do not realize that.
I agree with you that dictators and despots can handle the ME and other Muslim countries well, if the US and other powerful regimes of Europe (the UK, France and Germany) do not boot-lick them and do not keep them in their pockets.
There is still time, so write to your Congressmen to humiliate Obama just as the Bristish MPs humiliated David Cameron.
There was great statement from Jonathan Eyal of the Straits Times, in his article. He wrote and I quote:
Quote from Jonathan Eyal in today's Straits Times:
"In years to come, it is inconceivable that any future Western leader would be able to commit forces for any foreign operation without a clear international mandate and/or explicit backing from national lawmakers.
The days when a British prime minister and an American president could sit on a park bench at the Camp David retreat and plan a war have ended."
