As the US is unable to alter the thing which most makes it unable to function in the mideast, then it should cut it's losses. As there is no hope of altering the political situation sufficiently to end cultural resistance to the presence of the US in the region, we have only one practical alternative. Immediate withdrawal from Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Persian Gulf. Another decade of war will produce nothing but a larger national debt, more expensive oil, greater dependency on oil, and the massive resistance of the populations in the region. We should also terminate the money we waste propping up the governments of Egypt and Israel. That money gets us nothing and is a waste. Time to look out for America instead of the thankless.
