I understand what you are saying. This Syrian tragedy just seems to go on and on and the poor innocent people who are just trying to live, are living
in terror and there lives and existence will be changed forever. Refugees are flowing into neighboring countries like Jordan and Turkey.
But the reason I feel the U.S. does not need to take the lead (we can back-door activities and provide intelligence and weapons) but this is a
geographical issue. Its about time the neighborhood in the area step in and finally do 'SOMETHING' to stop this! The U.S. always gets slammed for
trying to overtly help, covertly I'm ok with, but for once, I'd like to see, the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Turkey, Jordan, Saudi Arabia take the
lead to stamp out these tragic abuses right in their neighborhood.
Let's face it, and let's just put the known cards on the table. Our World's most terror/atrocities are happening in the Middle East. They are
primarily being led by a fanatical Islamic group of thugs who have distorted the teachings of the Koran, and the terror and constant threat of war,
terrorist actions (blowing up embassy's, consulates and innocent people won't stop, Look what the Islamic Muslim terrorist did to that poor little
girl in Pakistan by shooting her in the face/head just because she wanted to go to school, learn and improve her life.
Part, I say again Part of the problem is that we are dealing with thugs, criminals that live in lands that are so far behind in Education, equal
rights and are driven by religious beliefs that in the name of Allah give them the right to kill innocent people, just because someone has an altering
opinion or disagrees. I know this sounds rough, but the facts are that we are dealing with an ignorant, uneducated major population of people that
rule their masses by fear and intimidation of cutting your head, hands, legs off or killing your whole family bacause you simply want to have your
daughter go to school and learn.
I realize I am over-simplifying a lot of this, but the you have the Israeli and Palestinian conflict. Bottom line, Israel does not want peace, no
sooner after meeting with Sec'ty Kerry to generate 9 months of peace talks, within 48 hours of agreeing to it, the Israeli representative states that
they will break off the discussions in 30 days (this is even before they start, Israel is already telegraphing it does not want peace and will use any
little issue to stop the discussion.) The oppression, fear and just inhuman lifestyle that is forced upon the innocent people of Palestine is a crime
and we only hear one side. So again, the Middle East has many problems, but it is the countries in the region, there own neighborhood that should be
trying to resolve this.
Unfortunately, I do not see any resolution or stabilization of the evil, terror and constant threat of specific attacks throughout the region. Our
administration has said Al-Queda is a shadow of itself, well how big is that shadow. It appears it is growing bigger everyday. There will be no peace
until a concerted effort by the majority of the countries in the region begin to step up and solve their geographical problems
Also, since there are so many mis-directions happening, we haven't even begun to discuss Africa. It is slowly being taken over by Islamic/Muslim
terror groups. In addition, China is playing a silent but very direct role in assisting these groups for the sole purpose to secure the major oil
reserves and natural resources that exist.
Pehaps it is time for the U.S. to reevaluate its foreign policy and stop sending billions of dollars to Pakistan, Egypt and Israel and let them solve
their own problems. Why do we need to be there. Once we finalize the agreement with Afganistan to leave and provide some defined help, we should
remove ourselves from an overt postion and move into a very deep dark covert position. We do not belong there. However, unlike the debacle, the
disgraceful reaction from the Obama administration on the attack in Benghazi, which is almost a year ago, and their has been no tangible response to
bring those Islamic/Muslim terrorist to justice, anytime our Foreign operations are attacked, we should have an immediate devasting military response
and destroy these people. And use the tactic that some of our friends in the M.E.always use. ' We are looking into the incident, we'll report back,
it never happens!!
