While I agree with pulling out of the ME people really do need to understand what the would mean:
A power vaccum would be created that would be filled by either China,Russia or radical theocracys worse than what we have seen.
As long as Isreal exists there will be no peace in the middle east.
The Middle east has been fighting among themselves for over 2000 years pulling out will not change that fact., and then Iran goes nuclear, their
neighbors would go nuclear.
That is a recipe for disaster.
As you correctly observe, the middle east has been fighting among themselves for over 2000 years. Israel has existed for around 60. The obvious
conclusion to that is that if Israel ceased to exist tomorrow, they would still be fighting, merely finding something else to fight over. Israel, like
certain current poorly written, directed, and acted films, did not initiate this violence, it only provides a convenient excuse for it. Same for
Islam, since the ME violence predates the inception of Islam.
There are just folks there who enjoy killing for a hobby, and will do so on any pretext or excuse. I'm actually all for letting the whole region go
as nuclear as hell, so they can thin out their own herd somewhat, to a more manageable level of mayhem.
