We’re constantly informed that “Americans don’t understand the Muslim world.”. Well here’s a news flash. The Muslim world understands America a hell of a lot less. I’ve been there, and done that. It’s pretty damn obvious. I’ll even go so far as to say that your average American knows a hell of a lot more about the Middle East than your average man on the street in Cairo knows about The West. I’m so sick of this apologetic guilt ridden crap we force on ourselves. We will never be able to “buy” the love of the Arab street through billions of dollars in aid to their governments. The people of those countries don’t have a clue on Earth that we, through deficit spending loans from China, put the bread in their mouths. Our “friendly” governments in the Middle East leave that little nugget of info out of the general discourse with their people. We need to start getting over the concept that our aid dollars will “buy” their friendship and move one. We can not force ourselves onto that street, it’s a waste of blood and money. Let the Arab street come to us. Either with open arms or under arms. We will accept and/or deal with them either way as brothers in democracy or enemies. But it’s time to stop chasing that philanthropic pipe dream. They’re not ready and we are wasting our time. The only friend we have in the Middle East right now is Israel and we’ve been pissing on their shoes. So we’re soon to have no friends at all in that region. Time for America to withdraw, regroup and wait for another opportunity. As they say in the South, we’re just spitting in the wind right now.
