Reader comment on item: The "Shocking Document" that Shaped the Middle East Turns 100

Submitted by Phebe Adams (United States), May 10, 2016 at 16:09

I'm a 91 year old woman of no great accomplishment but I do have a brain, and I have been saying since the fall of Libya, that the western world should just get the hell out of the area and let them fight each other to whatever the outcome may be. Then, if they come to some resolution of their own, we can be friends to all, and come help clean up the mess. But we should, by no means, be contributing to the mess--on any of the many sides. We've just sent troops to Yemen (to fight the Shia) and last month increased troops on the ground in Iraq to fight ISIS (Sunni). Who is the strategic genius behind these moves?

Please Mr. Pipes, can you get an interview with Donald Trump and present your knowledge to him -- in the form of questions, of course -- such as: what is your opinion of__? Did you know that ___? Were you aware of ___? What would you, as President do about ___?

He is a highly intelligent man with a much broader range of experience than is exposed in our mostly childish media. Perhaps he has already come to some realization of our stupidity in this area. If not, he is intelligent enough to give it consideration and further investigation. Please try to reach him. I would never get past the army of secretaries, assistants, consultants, managers, etc. ad infinitum.

Thank you!

Thank you for the kind words about my work but I won't go near Trump. I wish for his being crushed electorally so the Republican party and the conservative movement can survive to fight other battles.
