Regarding moving the US embassy to Jerusalem: It is nobody’s business other than the U.S. where it’s Israel embassy is. I am especially incensed to learn that past presidents have promised to do it then reneged for fear of violence. That is the kind of wimpiness that has turned America into a paper tiger since WW II—and done great damage to us like the 58,000 who died in Vietnam.
On the other hand, my fictional Unelected President “Mike Medlock” would move all the funny-hat country embassies to the U.S. In other words, the ambassador to Israel would be in DC. Why? Because that part of the world is nuts and unsafe.
Would those countries be insulted, take umbrage?
I could not care less. I do not understand the Middle East, and neither does anyone else, including those born and raised there. To sum it up in one word, they are dysfunctional. They are incapable of getting along with their neighbors, which is a fundamental requirement of civilization Medlock does not send his employees—civilian or military—to uncivilized places.
Which are the funny-hat countries? Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Israel, Sudan, Somalia, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Oman, UAR, Qatar, Bahrain, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Turkey.
Can you quibble with some on the list or some off it? Sure. I have not studied it the way I would if I were president.
There is no “Peace Process” and never has been. This crap has been going on since at least the 40s. Enough! These people should continue killing each other until they are all gone or until some leaders arrive like the mothers who ended the IRA terrorism in Northern Ireland. If and when that happens, they have our number. Until they happens, they can go to hell and likely will.
Am I concerned that Russia or China would gain “influence” in the Middle East? Hellll, no! I would laugh at them for embracing that tar baby. The only ones who have influence in the Middle East are the religious leaders who have created this mess. I would love to see a couple of atheist dictatorship countries waste their treasure and blood trying to “influence” the uninfluenceable.
