The Mess That Is The Middle East

The United States brought to the region an instability not known in years by attacking a sovereign nation and opening it to a murderous insurgency that will never be repressed.

Iran funds a militia that has invaded and established a nation-within-a-nation in Lebanon and is attacking a questionably sovereign state across the border.

Israel attacks civilians and United Nations peace-keepers with impunity while defending itself against Hezbollah.

The United States refuses to call for a cease-fire in Lebanon, and leaves that job to the French (a nation to whom the USA would never acquiesce).

The United Nations is ignored by the Iran, the United States and Israel, and can do nothing about it.

It seems to me that the problem is the United States, Iran and Israel.

Hezbollah must be stopped, eradicated if possible. Hamas must come back to the table and act as a political party and not a band of terrorists. The United States must withdraw from Iraq and let those idiots fight a civil war for which American taxpayers are responsible, and Israel needs to continue their withdrawal from immoral, if not illegal, settlements.

Since the United States long-ago abdicated its role as the world's peacekeeper and now uses its military to secure resources for a small number of Texan businessmen, where does the world turn for peace?

Shut-off your computer and march in the streets for peace.

2 insurmountable problems.

1. If Hezbollah (called Hizbollah in the UK media) were wiped out tomorrow it would take only a few years for them to reband and regroup. You cannot kill ideas.

2. Hamas are unable and unwilling to behave like human beings.

Both of those groups will never recognise the state of Israel. Both of those groups want every Israeli to either die or move to another country, they don't care which.

You can't negotiate with people who refuse to accept that Israel has a right to exist. If all Israelis decided to move to, say, Texas, then there would be peace in the Middle East. Nothing else will do the trick!
