It's in the US national security interests to see the conflict resolved. Bin Laden attacked the US for very few reasons, one of which is US support for Israel. Another of Bin Laden's calls, which the General continues to conveniently ignore, is US support for corrupt monarchies and dictatorships in the middle east. The so-called spreaders of democracy and democratic values continue to support corrupt, anti-democratic regimes throughout the Middle East, I.E. Egypt, UAE, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia. Oddly enough these are the hotbeds of anti-american sentiment and birthplaces of most of the 9/11 terrorists. I wonder why?
