I have a lot of opinions on this thing, but my philosophy mood is failing, so sorry if this makes no sense whatsoever, and preface everything I type with, "in my inexperienced, potentially misguided opinion"...
That dust bowl has been engaged in a war for the past two thousand years. The only
way it'll possibly
end, once and for all, is for it to:
a) Run out of resources (oil) worthy of conquest (as it also prompts the rest of the world to be involved as long as there are resources there worthy of plunder)
b) Abolish/Convert religion (the idea that one group has god-given rights to land/resources over the other, used as justification for war, in-fighting, bringing their fight overseas, etcetera)
c) Run out of people (no people, no religious dogma/justification, no exploitation of resources...and no likelihood of actually occurring)
The middle east is a kitchen stove--a burner, turned on high heat, and so far the modern world has just been pouring water onto the burner. It cools it off for a while, but the thing is still turned on, and it's just gonna heat back up. Doesn't matter if Bush was the one with the bucket, or Obama, or anyone else. At most we can blame them for wasting a bit of water and time--but what other solutions do we have? (I don't know, I'm not a military/political leader)."Using that analogy, why not just turn off the burner?"
Because it's been on so long, the heat has made everything near the burner's proximity burning hot too--and not only is it difficult to touch the control without burning yourself, but it's started to melt, and is resisting you turning it!
That's all I got. Oh, as for ISIS? Can anyone point, for me, at a radical, extremist terrorist cell with weapons, guns, an intention to kill their enemy, who isn't
using religious justification for their violence/rape/suicide bombing/bombing/general terrorism/etcetera?*
Note, I think I went off topic here, so, to return on-topic
, I'm gonna go with what Joeyphx444's
put down:"People don't feel safe anymore, and so who do they blame? The President of course And now he is showing that he really is horrible at foreign relations"
Cause that probably makes a lot more sense than what I went on about. +1!
