Hillary...please explain to us the REAL reason we want "new democracies in North Africa and the Middle East?"
Do we really give a rat's butt about these people? Do we really care who they are, what they are, or how their dictators treat them? I daresay there have been far more brutal leaders in places like the Sudan, but we haven't rushed there with tanks and soldiers.
Could it be the Sudan has nothing to offer the United States, whereas the Middle East is saturated with oil and natural gas...things WE want for ourselves?
Wouldn't it be far easier to mine our own resources right here in our own country?(Imagine the jobs created from this) Wouldn't it be easier to pour all that war money into energy resources that would release us from the dependency of foreign oil. WHY the desperation to get control of these Mideast countries unless there is some underlying, money-making factor that forces us to maintain a position that will be next to impossible to win.
This has nothing to do with "democracy." If it does, then let these countries fight their own battles. It's time the United States STOP becoming involved in every other country's temper tantrum, pissing contest or family feud. We're broke, we tired, we're angry and we're disgusted.
If you took all the money spent on Iraq, Afghanistan and all the foreign aid we shell out just to have friends, IMAGINE the things that could be done here in OUR country. The good things...for OUR people. We might could, once again, be the greatest country int he world.

Hillary has failed in her 'leadership' as Secretary of State.
Condi Rice never had a dead ambassador on her watch.
Obama and Hillary have failed to protect on a 9/11 anniversary.
and the 'excuse' that it was a film makers fault...then why didn't Obama and Hillary have the same information on the film maker and beef up protection?
FAILURE=FOREIGN POLICY -stop the 'let's be nice' silliness and PROTECT OUR diplomats and servicemen!
FAILURE=TO UNITE AMERICANS=OBAMA

You are full of beans.
Condaliza Rice was head of NSA on September 11, 2001. She allowed the attack through her incompetance, and failure to do her job.

These people cannot handle a democratic form of government. If a Sunni comes to power they will persecute other religious minorities and vice versa. They require strong authoritative leaders, it is their history , and to fight that trend is to engage in a fools errand.

Looks like Hillary - Warrior Princess - is drumming up (war drums) more business for America's Military Industrial Complex which seems to be our greatest export and the outsourcing of Death and Destruction around the World.
