The Middle East Explained
« on: September 28, 2014, 06:00:35 PM »
Clear as mud

Are you confused by what is going on in the Middle East? Let me explain.

We support the Iraqi government in the fight against Islamic State. We don’t like IS, but IS is supported by Saudi Arabia, who we do like.

We don’t like President Assad in Syria. We support the fight against him, but not IS, which is also fighting against him.

We don’t like Iran, but Iran supports the Iraqi government against IS. So, some of our friends support our enemies and some of our enemies are our friends, and some of our enemies are fighting against our other enemies, whom we want to lose, but we don’t want our enemies who are fighting our enemies to win.

If the people we want to defeat are defeated, they might be replaced by people we like even less. And all this was started by us invading a country to drive out terrorists who weren’t actually there until we went in to drive them out. Do you understand now?

Aubrey Bailey
Quite difficult matters can be explained even to a slow-witted man, if only he has not already adopted a wrong opinion about them; but the simplest things cannot be made clear even to a very intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he already knows, and knows indubitably, the truth of the matter under consideration. -Leo Tolstoy

Here is our foreign policy clear as glass or as it should be

Bomb all those other than Israel. Force them to expel the extremist hiding amongst their populace. Take the oil from the ones that refuse. The regimes that refuse bomb them as well.  Send our troops in to defend our oil reserves. Once the oil is gone let them return to killing each other over religion

Peace

Maybe Obama could hire this person to help him out with his disasterous middle east police. It is obvious him, Kerry and Hagael don't have a clue and have everything in a violent mass.
