While I regretfully voted with the majority for option "C" in this poll, based on logic and the lessons of history, that does not mean that options "A" or
"B" are impossible. Our government must do whatever it can do promote and support responsible leadership in this region.

The US and other world countries will do what ever it takes to protect their interest in the oil. Big bucks are involved. It's amazing how their is so much wealth in the region but the average person never see or benefit from it.

Islam was the past, is the present and is going to be the future over there and we'd better support it or get the hell out. Whether we view their new leaders as dictators or religious extremists or not, we're going to have to deal with them. On our side thanks to our degenerate democracy, we've got nothing but lawyers (negotiators and appeasers) who are going to sell us out. At this point, they don't have a choice. The new degenerate democracies being created over there will be used to install religious zealots who will reinstate the Caliphate, Pan Islam and Sharia Law which is incompatible with and will sweep away the degenerate democracy because its degenerate. Hitler came to power the same way.

Veterans, It doesn't really matter one way or another. Just like Our Past Performance, We'll end up Supporting another Loser. Get the Shaft, every which way, but right. Have Our Blood, Sweat & Tears spilled at the Our Expense (American Flag draped coffins). FACT= We've NEVER been right about this area. They've been fighting ever since Christ was a Corporal. They'll continue to do such, until & after we're gone. That's their nature of the beast. We should just let the British have it. Then Compromise and Bargain with them, for concessions. At least WE KNOW THEM !
Or let the Israeli's have it out, with them ALL.
For certainy: We've Allowed Our Known & Pronounced Enemies to Thrive & Flourish HERE, upon Our American Soil. Due to the Ideals/Agendas of the Liberal Progressionist. EVERY Recent Terrorist Plot that has been Uncovered is from some person of this area or region. The time for Patsy Cake with these countries is going to have to cease, for Our Future Generations.

Send in the troops and look for: WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION. Stablize the Middle East try stablizing our goddamm economic situation in the US and provide jobs for returning servicemembers. Our present leadership in the pentagon couldn't lead a horse to drink and neither could anyone in Washington DC.

I think that the Muslim Brotherhood will insert itself into the new governments that are being produced by present leaders stepping down.

I'd like to think that Gaddafi in Lybia will hold, but I doubt it. He's the first leader to demand blood as the price of change.

I'm concerned for the survival of Israel since our present Administration is abandoning them. It wouldn't surprise me if by this time next year that nuclear detonation(s) will have occurred in that region as a result of massive troop movements against Israel, because Pres. Obama and his Administration do not stand firmly on Israel's side.
I don't expect nuclear defense, but it merely won't surprise me if it happens.
