America has lost. We rebuilt Iraq from scratch, after we bombed it back into the stone ages. This is the "thanks" we get.

Is it really all that surprising? -- really? Our Middle East policy is insane. It was started under G.H. Bush back in 1990, and has continued seamlessly, through Democrat and Republican presidents, all the way until now. Obama has been a team player in this, and Romney will be just as much of one. How much insanity can we the American people take? Will it take another World War to wake us up? How many Americans will need to come home in body bags before we realise what our government is doing over there?
Russia has sided with Syria. Iran has sided with Syria. Iraq has sided with Syria and has been helping Iran arm the Assad regime. Meanwhile the USA sides with the Syrian rebels, arming Islamic radicals, for the purpose of overthrowing the government while throwing Syrian Christians under the bus. All of this is for petroleum interests, not so much wells but pipelines. This insanity must stop.
These radicals we are supporting in Syria? Who are they? Well they are the same sort of radicals we supported in Egypt and Libya. How's that working out for us lately?
Soon Israel will bomb Iran, and when she does, we will be dragged into a massive regional war. Hopefully this will not spread elsewhere, because if it does, it's World War III baby. The big one.
Prepare the way for the Great Monarch, because before this is all over, that may possibly be the result.
