Excellent Article!! The Western incursions into the Middle East have been a total fiasco. Backing terrorist forces in Libya and now in Syria is beyond idiotic.

What foreign policy ? The last 4 years this administration has bowed to every foreign govt. obamas lack of any foreign policy, weakness in the worlds eye has just strengthened the worlds contempt. Most cultures see this sissification of an entire country that truly is one of the strongest in the world, but hamstrung by a bumbling administration as easy pickings for events like benghazi. This will change and an admin with backbone will replace this pussified admin. Then they will learn after a leader allows his military to actually load a rifle and shoot back, unlike this fool in the white house getting our people killed by his muzzie pacifism making them prey for extremists that can't shoot back.

A decade of war, over 5,000 young American lives lost in Iraq and Afghanistan, with little to show for their efforts. Now the US is even sending troops back into Iraq, and recent events in Afghanistan may even delay America's planned withdrawal! With the country in a deep fiscal crisis and US forces stretched to the limit, how long will America now have to keep on fighting in the Middle East??

Are you in your right mind? You want more shooting by your government because of what happened to you in Benghazi? Do you know what you did in Benghazi and Libya? NATO, where the U.S. is a leader, flew 20,000 sorties-bombing raids, hitting over 10,000 targets; poured over the country 4,000 missiles, some of them bunker busters, hitting in the city, Gaddafi’s compounds; you fought the Libyan army for approximately two month with helicopter battleship; you positioned in Libya the Government composed by the West; and had Libya’s leader killed, together with his two sons, and his three grandchildren. And you started all of this from Benghazi.

This is a portion of what NATO did in Libya. And you think that you should still do more shooting?

A Billion US taxpayer dollars went into that Libyan fiasco, and now the terrorists that America embraced are coming back to bite them! No wonder Americans want the US to get out of the Middle East!! What kind of morons are in charge of US foreign policy??

Unfortunately, thousands of young American soldiers have been killed fighting these pointless and idiotic foreign conflicts, from VietNam straight through to Iraq and Afghanistan! Old fools in Washington sending young men to die, and for what? It's a tragedy.

It was very good to rise their public debts and destroy their economy - for good. Unfortunately, lots of civilians got killed.

Obama has tried to reach out to the muslim world. It doesn't work....they're all backward anti-west moon cultists.

Obama has even sent millions of US tax dollars overseas to help rebild mosques as a way to reach out to muslims. Another mistake and if I were an American, I would be very ticked off at the islamo sympathiser in the White House.

Look, it's easy (well ..... sort of). Take all of your military and CIA back home. ALL OF THEM. When and if we need your help (and decide it's worth the high price you always ask) then we'll ask for it. If you decide that you don't want to help ....... for any reason at al then that's your prerogative.

Just take your people out, OK?

Hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians were killed and maimed during Bush's quest to find nonexistent WMDs in Iraq. Truly despicable.

I am actually surprised how many Canadians are absolutely ignorant about Geopolitics, and how many are Dinosaurs in their way of thinking. Ignorance in Geopolitics makes your reasoning completely wrong, because you do not understand motives for actions. Your remarks about Obama are completely bogus.

Neither is up to you. But at least you are paying for it.
