    The fact of the matter is that at a time when we can't even afford to take care of our unemployed in America and our debt is skyrocketing, we cannot afford to stay in Iraq or Afghanistan. We have been in both for 10 years now, enough is enough. If Israel or Saudi Arabia feel threatened then maybe they should all deal with each other directly and with what is antagonizing the region. Act like normal independent states, you cannot hide behind the knee of the US shouting insults at each other forever. American power is waning, this is in part, because it's economic power is waning, there is new shift in global dominance and the would is becoming a multipolar world - the age of global american dominance is over, China, India, and even Iran is rising - this cannot be stopped - learn to deal with it and know that a perpetual stalemate between Israel and the arab world is unsustainable and one way or another things will change. The region needs a ghandi - PEACE - but we are out of there!
