Is government forcing children to pray in school Constitutional? This is a straw man argument. NOBODY wants to force anyone to pray in school and you know this. Denying children the right to voluntarily pray is certainly unconstitutional.
Is "No Child Left Behind" constitutional? No. Neither is the Dept. of Education. Education should be handled at the State/local level.
Can the Middle East be social engineered? I'll say this as having been there (have you?) - No. Trying to do so is a waste of our time, money, and blood. And your snarky comment regarding it being free is bull, too. Everyone knows it's not free.
