It is easy for this Westerner to wrap his head around this idea--"What in the hell are we doing over there anyhow? We aren't wanted so get the hell out." Bring our troops home NOW. Stop the wanton killing of our military and now our ambassadors. End the blowback by not giving them any targets. Bring everyone who works in the Middle East for the federal government back home where they belong.
Oops. I forgot. The military-industrial-Wall Street-banking-complex would lose money if we do the sensible thing, and we can't have that. No, their profits and the campaign contributions that come from them are more important than the lives of our military. We are really over there to build the empire ever larger.
