    Probably not in my lifetime. Hopefully, but probably not. Fingers crossed. Would be nice.

    Well Lets see. We have armed most of the countries. We have overthrown or killed most of the dictators who kept their countries under control. We have given WMD to the one Jew country and continue to pay them to be a terrorist perpetrator in the area. We have bombed four countries and destroyed the infrastructure. And now we threaten Iran because they are apparently getting ready to build ONE nuclear bomb.



    And now all of a sudden the area is in chaos. Just at the time we are looking for a good reason to start a new war. Will the Middle East ever have peace? Not as long as we are there!

    Obama's been arming them but even if we left them all alone it wouldn't matter. They are a cult of violence.

    It's too complicated for an answer. The area has always been a problem and they have always tried to expand. Muslims are supposed to convert people to Islam or kill them.

    I believe that's why UK et al drew borders and created the ME countries we know today. Tribes were divided and distributed into the new borders ostensibly to keep them apart. Of course it didn't work. That's the problem.

    Today, some infidels abet Al Qaeda. Is it part of population reduction?

    It is a fools game to try to change a culture 1000s of years old. They are what they are. None of our business........But they do hold most of the oil. And because big oil stifled all inventions in the past that could have broken our dependency from it-here we are as stupid and dependent as always.

    How is it possible that we can know how much oil everyone has, really?

    Some experts are now claiming US has more drillable oil than anyone else on earth?

    Pay no attention to gloom and doom, they just want to make you crazy.

    I'm certainly no expert on oil but I have read many experts opinions. The tar sands and bakken (sp?) oil reserves are not easily drillable and cause more environmental damage, through fracking and aquifer pollution, then they are worth. The area in Canada is an ecological catastrophe. Fracking poisons the earth and is suspected of causing earth quakes.

    Most of the easily obtainable oil has been found. Now it is drill deeper and in more dangerous places to keep the "happy motoring" nuts happy. Case in point is the Gulf of Mexico disaster.

    I said ignore doom and gloom, Wally. Obama says the U.S. has 22.3 billion barrels of recoverable oil.

    Okay, start with the Green River Formation in Wyoming: 1.4 trillion barrels—sixty-two times as much as Obama counts.

    After Green River, count other sources: 86 billion on the outer continental shelf; 24 billion in the lower 48; 2 billion on Alaska’s north slope; 19 billion in Utah tar sands; 12 billion in ANWR. Then add in oil shale: 800 billion just in Wyoming and neighboring states. As IBD sums it up: “When you include oil shale, the U.S. has 1.4 trillion barrels of technically recoverable oil, according to the Institute for Energy Research, enough to meet all U.S. oil needs for about the next 200 years, without any imports.”

    These estimates are almost sure to rise over time—to anywhere from three or four to twenty or twenty-five times as much. Those are the ranges of error on past official estimates of recoverable oil.

    It's hard to find the truth these days but it's out there if you're willing to dig.

    Well the question is why would we be destroying the Middle East if we had all the oil we needed for 200 years? Maybe digging is what is needed.

    Not their oil. Keeping them corralled was the idea until socialism began making use of Islam insanity.

    Why doesn't Obama want to drill in the U.S. is probably no different than past presidents when info appeared more dire. Maybe our contemporaries want to wreck us in the U.S. so they can have ultimate control for when they go after $elf-Serving projects.

    The Middle East has been a violent place more than 1,100 years BEFORE the US came into existence. They have also wanted to rule the world with Sharia law before the US came into existence.

    We didn't start the fire. They did. And they have kept the fire going since the 7th century.

    Funny thing. I was born in 1950 and hadn't heard a thing about Muslims until 1979. And I believe we were somewhere where we had no REAL business.

    I don't care what their religion is or their law. If the West had stayed out of the region they would still be carrying water on their heads and riding camels. We are the problem.

    If it hasn't occured in the 1st 5000 years of human history, i don't have much hope it will become peaceful anytime in the near future. Likely not in my lifetime.
    Obama's foreign/middle east policy essentially collapsed the Camp David accords, the ONLY thing Jimmy Carter did correctly is now in the waste bin of history.

    There has NEVER been peace in the Middle East... As long as there is predominantly Muslims ruling the majority area then NO there will never be peace... They will never allow the Jews or Christians to coexist within the Muslim population without some form of friction going on.......

    Huh...Considering no span of time has been provided. It would be nothing short of idiotic to assume a perpetual state of anything in any social context.

    Change is an inevitability.

    Just as it is an inevitability that this nation will one day lose its status as a superpower.

    Just as it is an inevitability that religion will one day cease to define the socio-political landscape of the middle east.

    Just as it is an inevitability that those with power will one day lose that power as the vicious shackles of economic oppression bore ever deeper into the flesh of the masses.

    Just as it is an inevitability that what illusion of hope we have in politics will one day blow aside like a thin layer of sand covering the truth written on the wall.

    Only when there is"ONE" religion will there be peace in the middle east.
    That would mean killing off, or deporting "ALL" the other religions.
    Wonder where they will go??? If not killed off I mean??
    Perhaps the United States, so we can deal with even more chaos here in the land of the free??
    Freedom of religion is killing the world with all those different Gods telling a different story of how we humans should act, and "NONE" of the Gods have the balls to show themselves to us humans, so we have to trust our own in order to know the truth?????
    I don't think so.
    Your god can kiss my ass if he is to cowardly to show himself !

    That's such a simple way of viewing a complex problem. And a popular one too.

    What makes you think that if "one side" destroyed the other, that another side won't appear to provoke violence on a new set of terms? What makes you think that the sides can be destroyed in the first place?

    These are ideas provoking violence, not nations quarreling over imperialism.

    spoken like a ron paul zealot. I guess 140 million female genital mutilations, refusing education to women, kill women for adultry, public filmed beheadings, murderous riots and rapes, blowing up pizza parlors and other assorted goodies of your muslim compatriots is just free speach compared to the Zionist criminals.
