4. "Our Policy?" Not in my name
Our policy is to make peace happen.

The policy of this regime is, sad to say, oil. If Iraq, et al, didn't have oil, we wouldn't pay them no nevermind. They have it, we need it, they will use our need for oil against us just as soon as they can figure out how. Saudi Arabia has done just that- at $40 a barrel. How long before it hits $100?

All the rest of the carrying on that the US is up to in the Middle East is based on the power of the Israeli factions in the US gov. For some reason, this faction has control over a large part of our foreign affairs.

This is the real question for which we need answers. Why is it that we favor so heavily one small group of people over the majority of those who live in the Middle East?
