A NEW AMERICAN CENTURY BUILT ON 21st CENTURY THINKING NOT 20th CENTURY MISTAKES!
FACT: Bush invaded Iraq to find weapons of mass destruction (WMD) — OOPS!
FACT: Bush negotiated the withdrawal date for troops in Iraq but somehow Obama is a fault.
FACT: ISIS(L) = Funded by Big Oil Monarchs is the newest Version of AQ Contract Killers which was also funded by Saudi and other Oil Monarchs which carries forward the Wahhabi Violent Murderous far Right-Wing philosophy of dictatorship and Overwhelming Violence to intimidate and dominate using decapitation and torture and extreme violence such as rape and murder to strike fear in the hearts of their ENEMIES!
American Test for foreign policy is our Nation’s Best national interest? Not what is best for other nations like Iraq or Israel.
America’s vital strategic interests in the Middle East no longer includes oil or Israel. We have excess dirty energy in America and are building solar and wind power which is growing exponentially and we have electric cars that don’t use gasoline. Millions of jobs will be needed to further develop the efficiency of green energy and solve our planets growing climate problems.
FACT: Terrorism kills less Americans than lightening or accidental suffocation. So police it and stop it when economically feasible.
America does not need to defend one middle east sect from another sect in endless wars and oil is becoming less and less a factor. So American interests are to Nation Build at home and educate Americans for the future needs of people. NO more wasteful Middle Class draining wars that sap $Trillions from our Well-Being and from our children’s future.
America has no reason to re-engage in Iraq or elsewhere in the Middle-East. We should minimize our footprint there and minimize the number of Americans at risk. Destroying nations to exploit them was a model of the 20th century and with new energy sources and climate change we must focus on survival and prosperity in the 21st century.
Preventing foreign terrorists from entering our shores is a technical challenge that we are addressing and should not be ignored, but it cannot infringe upon our individual rights and freedoms or cost the middle class its quality of life.
Israel has become far too much of a liability for America and we must gradually remove our military and other support to reasonable levels matching other nations population of approximately 50% Arabs and 50% Jews by 2016 with Palestinians surpassing 50% in 2020. [Currently 5.8 million Palestinians and 6.0 million Jews]. The conflicts in the Middle East have cost the American Middle Class $6+ Trillion and 8,170+ dead troops and hundreds of thousands with injuries and other problems. Nation building was a total failure in the Middle East and America’s Urban and Rural areas must be rebuilt and improved — especially our bankrupting Higher educational system and our poverty ridden secondary schools.
IRAQ’s was a total failure as a democracy that can protect itself. 65,000 American-trained and equipped Iraqi soldiers dropped their uniforms and weapons and armored vehicles and ran from 2,000 ISIS (OIL MONARCH) trained Mercenaries. They refused to fight for their own freedoms. America should bring home as many of our 20,000 civilians stationed in Iraq as feasible as they are vulnerable to ISIS to avoid losses like in war torn Libya where the same mercenaries are creating crisis upon crisis. Yes our nation-building abroad experiment was in vain — A TOTAL FAILURE — and now we must cut our losses and prepare for our Century ahead while protecting our borders.
Americans are war-weary and broke on wars of choice based on attacks sponsored by Big Oil Monarchs and it is time to STOP this drain on our Society and damage to other foreign societies. George Washington said: “My ardent desire is…to comply strictly with all our engagements foreign and domestic; but to keep the United States free from political connections with every other Country. To see that they may be independent of all, and under the influence of none. In a word, I want an American character, that the powers of Europe may be convinced we act for ourselves and not for others; this, in my judgment, is the only way to be respected abroad and happy at home.”
There is no U.S. military solution for Iraq so we need to wean ourselves and our multinationals off middle east oil and concentrate our energies on building green energy as we help solve the world’s climate problems.
