Bader S says " There is only one viable solution to this problem. The US should withdraw completely from Iraq in the same manner they withdrew from Vietnam. They should apologize to the Iraqi people for bringing this chaos and destruction to their country and they should begin paying reparation to the Iraqis, which they are morally obliged to do.American intellectuals suggested the same darn thing for Afghanistan, and look what happened. We had to go back in there. If we leave Iraq the way it is right now, it will surely be Afghanistan number 2. "The US has long been part of the problem in the middle east, so to be part of the solution it should leave the region to the people of the region. "

It takes two to tango. US is there because of the anarchist brigades. These anarchists used to get money from Hitler, then from Stalin and co. and now from Chavez + Ahmadenejat.

Anyone blaming US for every Middle Eastern problem is simply ignoring the history of the Middle East.
