To understand the situation in the Middle East, one must understand the history of Islam. It’s all quite clear and understandable when one knows the real difference between the Shi’ite and Sunni sects. The situation everyone is raving about is strictly between these two waring sects. It’s not about America, nor does America have any reason or business to be involved. Anyone with an iota of knowledge of their history would realize this.

If we only had people in government who understood this rather than loud mouth fools like John McCain, Lindsey Graham and the rest of the neocons, we would not be acting as though this is of any consequence to the US.

It’s not about the oil, but that’s what some would like you to believe. Our need for oil is not a problem that our esteemed President cannot solve with the stroke of his famous pen. By simply opening up land for drilling, allowing off-shore drilling and the Bakkan, we can increase our domestic production to the extent we’d be a net exporter of oil. OPEC would crumble for lack of its greatest market.

But mainly and better is that we would not be in another foreign war that will, as usual, drag on for decades using taxpayer money and our military’s lives for nothing. We don’t have to do this, you know.

LMAO…. You have to wonder sometimes, whether these people have ever posted anywhere…ever. Someone had better get working on artificial intelligence real quick….natural stupidity is gaining a serious foothold.

Thanks for the morning chuckle, Bob!
