    Isn't his " Lets get out at all costs " diplomacy  creating the mess going on today in the mid east ! Much like pulling all cops out of L.A. would do !  And then only mayhem Rules.?

      Have you seriously not yet learnt that we can't control countries where the population doesn't want us? It never works. The only moral thing to do is encourage a democratic process anything else is wrong.

        Exactly. The OP seems to be saying the West should hold up dictators no matter what they do to their people and how the people feel about it.

      The mideast has been a mess for decades.  We are not going to change that.  Bush made a bigger mess of it with two unfocused wars.  The only solution is to get to the point where we don't need their oil and that will not happen as long as corporations control our country.

    What "get out at all costs" diplomacy? He's an expansionist, if anything, and leaving them alone to at least have an election would be preferable to installing NATO's preferred Islamist dictator by force.
