With all due respect, your statement contradicts itself. The Middle East region is UNABLE to follow its natural course BECAUSE we're involved. In addition, I am curious to know what you think our "purpose" is over there.

It's probably quite easy for you to condone war from the comfort of your living room.
*Each star on this map represents a U.S. military base. If Iran, or any other country for that matter, had 44 military bases surrounding us, how do you think we would respond? We can't keep trotting across the globe dictating that we can have weapons and no one else can. Aside from the fact that WE CAN'T AFFORD IT, it is ethically wrong and it makes us look like idiots, considering that The United States of America is the only country in the history of the world to ever use nuclear weapons of mass destruction, and we used them on a largely defenseless, civilian population.
