    Obama's lack of leadership in the middle east is evident at every gas station in the nation. Interesting article.

    Barack Obama's Mideast Madness
    Oliver North | March 22, 2012


    - The hurried U.S. withdrawal from Iraq emboldened radical Islamists throughout the Middle East, who now claim their jihad succeeded in “driving the American invaders (or crusaders) out of Iraq.” This oft-repeated theme is now part of radical Islamist rhetoric in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Bahrain, Jordan and Lebanon and is disseminated in propaganda organs supporting Hezbollah, Hamas, al-Qaeda, the Taliban and even al-Shabab.

    - The rush to “get out” of Iraq, and now from Afghanistan, coupled with major cuts in the U.S. defense budget, has discouraged America’s allies and emboldened our adversaries. The most pernicious consequence of our retrenchment is evident in Syria where Bashar Assad’s brutal regime is perpetrating a bloodbath.

    For Americans, the consequence of this ineptness is most visible at the pump. The Syrian catastrophe helps push up the cost of motor fuel and threaten our fragile economic recovery. Gasoline prices this week – averaging $3.86 per gallon – are nearly 10 percent higher than a year ago. Independent experts tell us we should expect prices as high as $4.50 or more per gallon by midsummer. All of this because the Mideast mess precipitated by the Nobel Laureate in the White House is likely to get worse before it gets better.

    I dont give a shit what they think. I give a shit about reality.

    Democracy sucks doesn't it.
    Except for the fact that in the process of leaving Iraq the country has not spiraled out of control. All the right wingers proclaiming that withdraw would result in amergeadeon were like always proven wrong
    Yes sucks that Obama can't do everything, if only he was like superman or something.

    Syria produces little oil and has 0 effect on Americas gas prices
    Yet slightly slower then it was 3 years ago.

    What I love about this is NOW we have Liberals defending the supposed illegal Government we installed in Iraq. Wasn't it the Liberals that insisted A) we couldn't win in Iraq, B) that as soon as we left there would be a civil war and C) Nation Building doesn't work? You all told us we couldn't win , we couldn't stabilize the Country, the Government of Iraq would devolve into civil war as soon as we left and it was an illegal Government.

    NOW you are defending it. I find that HILARIOUS.

    Muslim Brotherhood's Goals Questioned as Candidate Runs for Egyptian Presidency
    April 06, 2012 - In Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood's presidential candidate, Khairat el-Shater, submitted his candidacy forms on Thursday, just days after Egyptian clerics said el-Shater pledged to them that he would introduce Sharia, or Islamic law, if he is elected in May.
