Would someone explain to me why the U.S. is allied with Israel, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the UAE? It seems like a case of strange bed-fellows to me. On the other side, we have Russia, Iran, Syria and Turkey. I heard on the news recently that the U.S. is producing most of its own oil now. So why the hell are we still involved in this incredible Middle East mess that will probably never be settled peacefully? Remember, 15 of the 9/11 terrorists were from Saudi Arabia, one of the most oppressive countries on the face of the earth! Perhaps it's time for the U.S. to seriously reconsider its involvement in Middle Eastern affairs?

@ashley44 No offense meant. There are a lot of influential Jewish people in this country and just a lot of Jewish people in this country. We will always be allies to that part of the world. It doesn't hurt that there is a shitload of oil there too. Those people are never going to stop fighting until they find something better to do than be soldiers. Being soldiers means they are somebody, and a part of something, If they stop fighting, they are just dirt poor farmers, and on their own.


And its deeper. The US does not want a strong leader in the Middle East, so every 10 or so years, we go stir the pot. While their crazy fundamentals religions is one element keeping them in the bronze age, we help keep them there with our interventions.

I read a really good book on this concept but can't remember the name. If I locate it, I'll post here.


As the big picture goes in the middle east, it is about controlling the price of oil and where it flows. Also, the arms industry is all about profit above anything else; the US finds it very profitable to keep conflicts going and to arm both sides. Israel is basically an offshore military base in the most strategic area of the middle east, it is basically Evangelical Christian and that's the repugnantans are in love with Israel. The US obviously doesn't care about human rights or democracy and that shows right here at home.


As Betty Bowers recently pointed out, the only reason that christians are siding with Isreal is so that their god can destroy it during the rapture. Without Israel, they don't get their rapture.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it.


First of all I hope it is not Fox you use as news. We have decreased our need for oil due to the wonderful technology of fracking for natural gas. Fracking is as crazy as drilling, it kills the environment and us. Saudi is now under the control of the leaders son who is now pals with the orange haired raccoon president we have. UAE serves as a banking service for us to wash money, and we could go on and on. The issue is why does the Trumpet want us in another war?? Why is he startling things up?

He owns defense stocks and wants to use HIS TROOPS


The answer is very simple we have a lot of American money invested in these countries and we would not want to place this money in jeopardy for some basic morals would we?
