We are a pretty stupid and full of shit lot at times. We see things so clearly. Without any feel for history, we draw maps and lines in sand, let oil companies have their say, and generally figure those without our blessing of western civilization be considered fools.
So we wind up Iraq and Iran into a tight spring and keep winding them up like an 8 day clock and when it goes "sprung" we get crazy. Well we should be crazy but not at them. They are fighting religion and history. We are a sideshow.
Now buttheads like McCain are all in a lather for war. War ! War I tell ya'. I want to shake these idiots; hold 'em up by the ears and slap them silly. It isn't going to work. We have zero business there and zero interest. The five sisters oil companies...well they are a different matter. Let them arm their employees and send them there to protect the oil interest.
Otherwise. Leave me/us/the country alone.
