    Should the USA be more involved in Middle eastern politics?

    The USA government made a world wide statement when the protesters rallied in Tahir square in Eypt, should these things be left to world organisations?

    When has the US not been deeply involved in Middle Eastern politics?  Since WW2, the US is involved in every region and area of the Middle East and most countries of the world and for good reason.  The US can be credited as the major catalyst to the lifestyle improvements throughout the world via US business with the aide (and sometimes hinderance) of the US government. 

    For all its mistakes, the US has changed the world for a better place.  Where do all the countries of the world send their brightest to study?  the US. 

    Although not perfect and still very young, the US is a light to the world. 

    To answer your question directly:  yes, we need to be involved in supporting people and our own national interests as well.  If the US were to stop all influence (not possible) the US would create an incredible vacuum that would destabilize the entire world

    Thanks for the input, I suppose being the light of the world is a heavy torch to carry.
    Especially when the world is watching.

    Good question. The thing that concerns me is that if a radical government that hates our guts took over, can that affect our oil? Look at what is happening in Libya and other Middle Eastern countries! I like to think that the USA is live and let live up to a point-When oil is affected and our pocketbooks gets hit hard- Will we wait until that happens to complain and demand our government do something or will we demand action now before it is too late.
                     What troubles me is that we have too much dependence on oil. We, Americans, are quite creative and have an abundance of natural gas. We are the Saudi Arabia of natural gas, yet politics keeps us from beng self sufficient. We need to have sound leadership that knows what they are doing and not captive to the special interests.

    It really doesn't matter what the US does.  They'll be criticized for it either way.

    i think the U.S. should leave the middle east to fend for itself. sooner or later it's going to blow up in their faces and then it will be too late. the biggest problem today on the world stage with the U.S. is the need for their government to get into other countries problems and it is hurting the U.S. badly. leave the middle east alone because that part of the world will always have some kind of conflict happening, it's just the way it is.

    The USA needs take care about United States Of America and not on the problems of other countries and interfering in the values of other cultures.

    I think we should be more involved with what is going on in our own country. We often get swept up in politics over seas and we fail to see the trouble we have here.

    I don't see any reason to break with a decade old tradition especilly in a Euro-Asian Country.
