Proposed U.S. Mid-East Policy: 'Let Live or Let Die'

11 May 2009 at 8:50:44 AM

It's time to change our Mid-East policy. 
During the past decade U.S. taxpayers have been forced to spend TRILLION$ for overseas military and business ventures and most of us have little positive to show for it.  However, wealthy profiteers and corporations have made billions on those ventures.
It is time to implement "a hands-off" Mid-East policy that will return political, economic and social control to the nations of that region.  Who are we as a nation to determine a democratically operated Mid-East environment?  It is NOT our call.
The U.S. no longer should be the Mid-East's "baby-sitter" at a high cost to the American people.  If we had spent half the amount provided overseas into our own infrastructures and progressive development as a nation, we would not be in the economic turmoil we currently find ourselves.
So, the new foreign policy proposal is to "let live or let die".  Let Mid-East nations determine their own fate.  Let them "sink or swim" together.  The U.S. needs to keep out its proboscis from Mid-East operations and let those nations learn to co-exist or to fail on their own, without ongoing Western interference and regulation.
After all, as a nation, we would not want Mid-East imperialists to dictate our direction or to invade our turf, taking over the management of all our industrial and corporate sectors --- would we?
We already have enough of a problem with our existing immigration invasion, which has and continues to cost Americans thousands of jobs and millions of our tax dollars.
Isn't it time the U.S. lets the Mid-East "let live or let die"?

I agree with you completely, pstern. However, in order to achieve this, we would have to take our foreign policy back from the Zionist lobby and its stranglehold on our media and government.  Although there is increasing discussion about this problem, still most Americans remain programmed and ignorant of the seriousness of this inappropriate influence by a foreign government within our country.

It's not just Israel and Zionists.  It's also our imperialist elements that continue to salivate from the profiteering still to be made in those nations from U.S. involvement.  We need to rechannel that motivation into redeveloping our own nation in all areas.

 Again, I agree with you. Imperialism is the more fundamental problem. I think the Corporate entities are the real impetus behind our country's imperialistic agenda. Do you?

It's what former Pres. Dwight D. Eisenhower termed, "The Industrial-Military Complex", and he tried to warn us of this in his farewell address

It's worth the read for all Americans. Click on the above link.

 I am familiar with his prophetic warning to Americans. Now we can add 'Legislative' to the complex.

Here is a small part of Eisenhower's speech that day:

This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence – economic, political, even spiritual – is felt in every city, every Statehouse, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

How properly said back then.  Now the O&G is in the same saddle--taking us for a ride.  BTW, the military industrial complex still is alive!
