what do get in return?

Reader comment on item: Why the Islamic world has such hate for the US

Submitted by jaime estrada (United States), Jul 24, 2003 at 15:33

Dear mr Pipes .

I as an american am wondering what in the world do we get in monetary exchange and commercial benefits for babysitting saudi arabia, kuwait, u.a.e., qatar etc. , subsidizing egypt's economy with billions of dollars a year etc, besides of terrorist attacks?Because my impresion is that is all we get from these islamists, is it worth it to spend so much money on nations that hate us, on nations who rather trade with japan.
My question is: Can we at this moment follow the japanese doctrine of just trade ,trade and more trade, and just stop supporting ungrateful arabs, being more obscurity of the world and light of our home, stop crying for the world and profit from it just like japanese do ?

Because they don't help anyone, don't send troops anywhere, don't lend money to any nation. and look at them they are awfully rich. would we be prepared in more peaceful times to be like them?

and is it feasable to take these Islamist arabs out of our beloved country, and what would it take to pull this off? is the left an enemy of the u.s.? how deeply involved is the left with the arabs? is being naive and too busy our worst defects as people?


thanks for you're time ,please send reply.
