    Stop giving money to the illegal regime of Israel. If they didn't have such an overwhelming military they might actually have to compromise and actually solve their problems instead of doing it down a gun barrel.

    start by trying to tackle unemployment in the states that aren't actively trying to kill each other constantly to cut down on the potential pool of converts for either suicide bombers or combatants for the extremist groups that draw from that part of the world.

    I've no idea how to fix the failed states there though. The only solution I've heard proposed for them is rather... Mongolian, and I don't really think building a mountain of skulls from the populations of towns that refuse to submit would work in this era.

    Pull out. I'm sure that the Middle East will eventually become peaceful (Europe was in a state of perpetual war until WWII ended, and that's only if you're ignoring the Bosnian genocide), but I doubt it will be because of our interfering. The USA didn't succeed because the Ottoman empire sent troops to America. We succeeded through trial and error, figuring things out on our own.

    I'm not sure there is an answer. Many over there do not like us (the US) and a lot of the world is not too friendly with Israel. We can't impose peace on them. It would take powerful, vocal leaders from their own countries to bring peace and even then it will not be easy or quick.

    Pull out completely. Get our own oil, whatever that might take. Basically, have as little to do with them as possible.

    ..........The Bible foretells that there would be strife and turmoil as to Israel and it's surrounding neighbor countries, in modern day, it is important to realize, that the Jewish People, are God's Own.........to mess with this countries affairs, is symbolically, like sinfully touching the Eye of God...........I stand with Israel, at all cost.......... http://olbroad.com/wp-content...

    I'm of the opinion that there will never be true peace in the Middle East.
    If we could cure our dependency on their oil we wouldn't be so involved in their problems to begin with.

    By staying right out of the area militarily, possibly paying a bit more for fuel (i doubt if that would happen though) and letting them sort each other out. The problems in the Mid East are of European and US making. They pose no threat as their religion prevents them from developing an effective industrial base. They need to sort themselves out. And we need to stay out.

    let nature take its course. The middle east has a far larger number of young people than most countries. And since the introduction of the internet age, those young people have access to more and more information. They will be the ones to change the middle east.
    But it will take a generation or two. It might be sensible to let it happen and not interfere too much.

    I wouldn't. The issues in the Middle East are too big for me.

    I'm sure if all those people had jobs they wouldn't have time to create the turmoil going on there.

    Leave there
    Purchase no products from them
    Send them no aid
    Refuse to allow their citizens within our country (and do not allow ours in their countries)

    Sister, you asked a hypothetical question.
    I just gave my answer.

    I'm not in power nor likely to be, so whatever I say is irrelevant.

    that's true....... now. But in the past it wasn't true, and we were only too happy to suck up their oil, and run their wells for them. It has been a little hypocritical of us don't you think?
  • Rustie flaca BN-0 2012/09/24 20:37:15

    No. Sounds like we should have left there a long damned time ago and let them go back to murdering pilgrims like they've done for thousands of years.

    the muslims invaded India at one time. They allowed them to keep hinduism and didn't interfere. The christian crusades were far more brutal.

    Easy let them solve their own problems the only reason those terrorist groups even attacked at first (no I'm not defending them either) is because of us messing around in the area I say we pull our military out and keep only strictly financial business ties with them and nothing more.

    Let the Middle Eastern countries fight it out. They will sort it out themselves. After the fighting is done trade them a bushel of grain for a barrel of oil.

    I DON'T THINK MAN CAN 'CURE' IT! It is, in my opinion, a FAMILY FIGHT (one man-Abraham, got 2 women pregnant- Sahrai and Hagar, and the world has been fighting ever since) where the combatants got ahold of NATIONAL AMORIES!
