A peaceful Middle East seems like a dream

A peaceful Middle East seems like a dream

When talking about the Middle East, I wish I had the ability to see a time where the "chaos will subside and the region will stabilize."

I think it is a dream of every moral person, but, unfortunately it is just that--a dream. The long squabbling partners are trying their best to kill each other and anyone who is in their way. Even a "divorce" won't solve these issues.

We do need to treat them as adults, very dangerous ones.

I try to see where the United States has its true allies and those who pretend to be friends for what they can get from us.

Where in the world do we actually have any pro-American rallies and publicity? Do you really think our image could be any worse than it is?

It's time for a reality check. There are a lot of people who hate us and will do whatever they can to hurt us. If it wasn't for the hard work of many government agencies (yes, I know many have opinions on how far is too far to protect us ), we may already have had many more attacks on our soil.

Not everyone is our enemy. There are a great many wonderful, caring people in the world who would love to be able to see this "dream" come true. Unfortunately, it seems like there are more who have a more violent and dark plan for us. It's up to us to make sure they don't succeed.
