My Opinion

 

Have We not Learned a Lesson from Kennedy and Reagan?
Are We Creating Democracy or Chaos for Our Friends and Allies?
The United States has intervened in many Arab countries like Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and who knows which other country. It is hard to realize that by wanting to create democracy in the Arab countries we are ending up having the Ennahdah and the Salafists in Tunisia, the Muslim Brotherhood and the Salafists in Egypt and in Libya, and a mixture of Muslim Brotherhood, El Qaida members and all kind of terrorists from many parts of the Arab World taking over the countries.
Have we informed the population of those countries what we had in mind or have we informed the Israelis if they concur with our interference? Or have we guaranteed that the result would not change the status quo reached or the peace agreement reached with our help between Egypt and Israel?
Have we weighed the scenario, what would happen, and whether the Israelis would be able or not to cope with the possible change in the nature of the border between Israel and Egypt? Have we thought about the border between Tunisia and Libya? I believe there are many unanswered questions which are still looming over the heads of the Tunisians or over the heads of the Israelis concerning all those changes.
If I understand the situation well, for example the Tunisian people are out of work for at least one year and most of them are unhappy and are demonstrating almost every day showing their dissatisfaction and unhappiness. The Ennahda people, instead of preparing the constitution, are spending their time traveling from Islamic country to Islamic country, openly, as if they had the approval of our government. Instead of creating a kind of stability, which should be better than Ben Ali’s regime, the interim government allowed the growing influx of Salafists, which have never been seen before in the country. The Ennahdah is using the Salafists to hit the people who are unhappy, like yesterday, when they hit a lady who tried to convince them not to remove the national flag from the pole.
Now there is Syria. First we wanted to side with the Syrian people, now in order to please the Iranians we try to side with Assad? Are we not a strong nation which can be respected even from afar? I remember President Reagan, when he came to power. The Iranians quickly liberated the American hostages from our Embassy. This I call a respected president. I know that with diplomacy we can solve many problems, like the Kennedys did with the Russians when the latter removed their missiles from Cuba, but here I don’t see any similarity.  
Now, are we trying to help the Israelis with the problem of Iran? Or are we playing the dominoes with them? One day we say this, another day we say something else. I don’t believe we should start a war with any country, but our president should show the Iranians strength and determination like Kennedy and Reagan did.

Reviewed by Peter Egan 3/13/2012
I don't know what to believe with the whole Iran situation. It seems to me that both Americans and the Israelis will be damned if we/they do, damned if we/they don't.

I can't envision a way out of this crisis that works well for everyone or that is not accompanied by major consequences.
