Misguided USA policy with Moslem countries

Reader comment on item: Turmoil in Tunisia

Submitted by NuritG (United States), Jan 18, 2011 at 15:02

Touching on politics that the US has been missing the point of managing its political stance,

LEBANON, a country run by Hezbollah, Iran proxy terror organization. Hezbollah is now part of the Lebanese coalition government. This week this weak coalition government collapsed when Hezbollah resigned from it because the UN is accusing it of murdering former PM Rafik Hariri, in 2005, a blame Hezbollah already put on Israel.Lebanon is considered a friend of the West, that includes the USA, all have been heavily funding this country. The US is in no position to field sufficient forces to maintain control over Iran's proxies in Lebanon. Should Hezbollah-Iran-Syria alliance decide to take Lebanon over, Iran would have secured a Western Mediterranean beach front. Right now it maybe a gambit, ahead of the Nuclear Meeting, scheduled to take place on 4-7th July 2010 in Ankara, Turkey, (http://www.nurer.org/)

It is only a matter of when, not if, that the Moslem Brotherhood will take control of Egypt, another US ally, that is heavily maintained with endless funding and its military needs. At that time the Suez Canal, Mediterranean ports and Red Sea ports would be nicely iced in the Islamic flags' colors.

Even Tunisia, on the south beaches of the Mediterranean is now batting its stability as its embattled 74-year-old President Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali struggles to maintain his leadership stability, and keep the fundamentalists that threaten other countries our of his country.

My advice to the US, to maintain its "superiority" in the region, better stay put about Israel's controlling Obama's "Soetorists" in Gaza-El-Arish area; stay put and out of Israel in general.

With the West openly supporting southern Sudanese independence, a new war is about to begin its consequences will not be limited to Sudan. Not to forget that the US is having to make endless military and other efforts in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Yemen, Venezuela, Brazil, and this list is growing.

In conclusion, the USA needs to do some soul searching. That means understanding that the one solution to war as promoted by most Western politicians—spreading Western values and ways of governance—is no solution at all.
