America does not exist in a void, as much as that bonehead Bush would like you to think it. We cannot retreat in our shell like a tortoise, at the risk of being crushed by some speeding juggernaut.
It is by becoming MORE involved we can make more friends. Of course, we cannot get involved in a partisan way, the process MUST be completely fair, and our reputation unimpeachable (which currently is not).
Only a matter of time before our intevertionist policy would bite us in the ass. I think by distancing ourselves from that region of the world we stop making so many enemies who want to blow themselves up to make a point.
we Americans end up paying for it????? I just lost two very close friends today. We need to halt support to Israel! We Americans are paying for it. WHAT NEXT FOR THAT TINY PIECE OF LAND??????
