Mideast Imperialism: The Coming Collapses Of America, Israel

Mideast Imperialism: The Coming Collapses Of America, Israel
UPI
A small American flag is seen in the rubble at the United States consulate, one day after armed men stormed the compound and killed the U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three others in Benghazi, Libya.

Following the horrific attack of the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that led to the death of U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens (some accounts say by lynch mob) and rioting in Egypt, some lawmakers are calling for the United States to withdraw aid from the countries.

That’s a good idea, but certainly not good enough.

The House will vote today on a resolution that would extend Federal funding through March to prevent a government shutdown before the election. Some conservatives raised concerns about the inclusion of additional foreign aid funding in the bill.

“It would show a tremendous amount of leadership from this administration, in light of the recent developments, if the president were to come back and demand that the amount of money that is in the [continuing resolution] for Libya and Egypt be stripped. That would be tremendous leadership,” Representative Jeff Landry (R-La.) said yesterday.

Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said the inclusion of continued aid to the nations should be contingent upon agreement that those responsible for the attacks be brought to justice.

For a little more than a decade, the United States has been meddling in the Mideast in the name of “democracy.” Instead of stripping some aid, perhaps it is time for the United States to strip all Mideast aid and get out of the world’s sandbox once and for all. Simultaneously, the United States could devote more resources to developing domestic energy (so that destabilization in the area does not hurt the United States economically) and focusing its entire military might on defending the homeland rather than imperialism.

Could the results be any worse than what the current Mideast foreign policy has yielded?

The Muslim Brotherhood, with the aid of the United States, has taken control of Egypt and Libya.

Afghanistan is overrun by sectarian violence, and the very Afghans the United States is attempting to train are killing American soldiers.

Iran, capitalizing on the United States’ reckless deeds throughout the Mideast, is making inroads in further radicalizing Egypt, Libya and Afghanistan.

And Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is doing his best to guilt the United States into a war that will amount to at least a decade more of the very same type of Mideast fighting that has failed already.
