This article is a great example of people expecting to much from the U.S.
When the U.S. gives too much people scream, when they don't give enough, people scream. It is the burden of being an anounced super power.
"The upshot is that Israel is now warring against or about to go to war against two groups that were once mere terror organizations, Hamas and
Hizbullah, but are now part of elected governments. If Israel does indeed hold the Lebanese government responsible for Wednesday's incident—as it
has Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyah for the acts of various Hamas factions in Gaza—then we could see a regional war with Iran and Syria drawn in
rather than the isolated actions against terrorists that we saw in the past. The situation cries out for decisive U.S. intervention, at the very least
a high-profile American envoy. There is none, and as Sen. Jack Reed told me earlier today: "The administration has been deliberately disengaged in
terms of providing a broker." Instead, Bush has either quietly underwritten Israel's efforts to isolate and starve Hamas, or he has deferred Mideast
matters to the multilateral Quartet, consisting of the European Union, the United States, the United Nations and Russia."
What is the U.S. supposed to do? If we go in too soon people will flip, and since were not going on people are screaming.
I say let them scream, I think the U.S. is staying on course and playing its cards right.
At this point, even after the U.S. was on the verge of screaming invade Iran, the U.S. says diplomacy will work. That is an example of the U.S.
playing its cards, the U.S. knows diplomacy wont work but it claims it will untill it makes it realised that diplomacy wont work and then takes action
with the support of many countries claiming it is the only option.
Sure we rushed into Iraq too fast but we had to, Iraq was too strategic of an area to not go in if we are going to deal with Iran.
Don't worry, the U.S. will quit playing soon and then it will be all out.
