A Changing World

Some complain about the destabilization of the Middle East, like this moron Senator Hagel:
WASHINGTON - A leading Republican senator and prospective presidential candidate said Sunday that the war in Iraq has destabilized the Middle East and is looking more like the Vietnam conflict from a generation ago.
Oh, you'd like that, wouldn't you.

To look like Vietnam, chicken little, first things would have to get twice as bad.

And then worse again by at least another factor of 10.

But go ahead and give succor to the enemy.
"We should start figuring out how we get out of there," Hagel said on "This Week" on ABC. "But with this understanding, we cannot leave a vacuum that further destabilizes the Middle East. I think our involvement there has destabilized the Middle East. And the longer we stay there, I think the further destabilization will occur."

Hagel said "stay the course" is not a policy. "By any standard, when you analyze 2 1/2 years in Iraq ... we're not winning," he said.
By any standard?

Quite a bold claim.

And wrong.

And what is this fetishization of "stability"?

So-called stability in the Middle East generated 9/11.

Instead, the World is Changing.

Besides the Grand Experiment of injecting a new meme into governance in the Arab world, the farce of a "peace process" for the "palestinians" has been ended, though few realize it yet.

The bluff was called by Sharon.

And I'm LMAO!

As David Warren elaborates, this is actually what the anti-Israel side never wanted!
Mr. Sharon, as everyone else who understands the background situation, is fully aware that, “Post-occupation Gaza will become a Mediterranean Somalia: an unstable failed state in which gangs compete for power and extremist Islam finds a sanctuary.”

But by allowing this to happen, he puts an end to the silly game, in which prevaricators in the West and across the Muslim world attribute every Middle Eastern disorder to Israel’s supposed refusal to allow a Palestinian state. He is now prepared to let them have that state, unconditionally, and let the world see why it should never have come into being.

Let the foreign ministries of Europe now panic about this triumph of Islamism on Mediterranean shores. Let the Egyptians now panic, as Israel removes the watch that protected Egypt as well as Israel from Islamist insurgency. Let Egypt and Jordan be compelled to send their own troops, respectively, into Gaza, and soon the West Bank. Let them take over Israel’s thankless task -- or suffer the consequences of it not being done. (The Egyptians have already sent into Gaza their first 750 troops to replace the IDF.)

For that matter, let the international community of professional apologists for Palestinian terrorism now drop their pretensions, and let the world know that what they actually demand is the annihilation of Israel.

Let Israel secure itself within the most defensible available frontiers, and complete the Wall it has been building.
Let me add, that the Israelis are, on this theory, returning to their much more successful survival strategy, pre-1967. It was, similarly, to seal the borders on the ground, and meet each successful Arab incursion with a brutal and unambiguous retaliation, on ten times the scale.
From your lips to Jehovah's ears...

If it were up to me, I'd cluster-bomb these mass demonstrations of masked demons in human form, without the slightest qualms or hesitations.

Just like turning out a light.
