The US is broken financially and politically. The Congress is for sale so foreign policy is difficult to develop and/or uphold. It is time for this past superpower to start sharing responsibility for world peace with its allies. Now that the EU has grown to encompass most of Europe, American involvement in the EU backyard is actually impeding their own growth, like an adult son who remains infantilized when Mom keeps taking all responsibility. The US should leave the Mediterranean protection business to Europe and get the Sixth Fleet dismantled. It will be enough for the US to take care of the Persian Gulf with its necessary oil supply. It will also be good for all the little sucklings of the Med basin to grow up and support themselves. Israel is not as mired in debt as the US and does not need US welfare payments. Egypt and Jordan, and even the Palestinians, should also learn to take care of themselves or/and rely on Arab oil income.
