There is a formula for peace but it is unlikely. There needs to be a promotion of citizen rights in the middle east. Since the US partners itself with oppressors and dictators, this is unachievable, unless brought about by popular struggle. Unfortunately, in most countries in this region the only group advocating any popular struggle are Jihadis. That is with the exception of Israel where lunatic Zionist extremism seems to be the order of the day. We need to elect people who understand what compromise means as well as the principles of non-violent protest. Oh and as a new years resolution, it might be a good idea to stop stealing peoples organs? Just a thought.
