No stopping the inevitable

There is nothing the US can do to stop the Middle East’s inevitable slide into chaos. The whole region has been a powder keg for years. The US didn’t create the kindling, but we did light the match. And there is no way the genie can be put back into the bottle. There are forces at work in that part of the world which is beyond the control of the United States. We are a powerful nation, but we are not Godlike. And, the sooner we all wake up to that fact, the better.
Instead of trying to solve the unsolvable in a distant land we barely understand, we need to beef up domestic security, take control of our border and develop renewable energy and promote conservation.
